The whole day it has been much too warm even to move. Finally, after eight o'clock in the evening, the temperature was pleasant enough to be able to sit in the garden. I was there too. It was my first time to see it gradually become darker and darker. It was a peaceful experience. I love it very, very much. Actually, never before have I felt this comfortable outside. I even preened my feathers and cuddled with Sophia, something I hardly ever do when I am in the garden.
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
