I haven’t been very organised this week (short-staffed at work has made me very tired) so I didn’t get the Christmas posts sorted, so forgive me for the videos – all with a Christmas theme though:

And of course, Two Turtle Doves:

At a Christmas party with my husband. It’s a sit-down dinner with cheesy disco music blaring in the background. Lots of drinks. Maybe some dancing later.

The subject: pigeons. More specifically: Our pet pigeons!

Five minutes into the conversation I realise how crazy we both sound. Richard is showing the people at the table Elmo fast asleep at home as seen from the webcam via Richard’s phone. … We’re proud as new parents, showing off our “babies”.

Somehow I doubt we’ve come across as sane, reasonable people. “Hippie” and “crazy” come to mind.

Oh well. Return home late to a very happy pigeon dancing around our feet and greeting us with enthusiasm. We were only gone for about 4 hours but Elmo’s acting like he hasn’t seen us all day.

We didn’t disturb Georgie. She was fast asleep in her cage.

On another subject, here’s Georgie hard at work:




And now time to rest:


The other day when I was out in the snow looking for Christmassy things I saw some nice bird baubles and I thought that next year our Christmas tree should be decorated only with bird baubles and decorations (haven’t the time nor cash to do it properly this year). A real pigeon tree! :)

I know some of you out there have been very creative with your decorations (e.g. pigeon stockings!) and I’d love to see photos of them.

I’ve already bought a few decorations which I’ll show you later but for now here’s some I found on the net:
