Sick As A Parrot

Reading time 2 minutes

This is Percy, one of our neighbourhood parakeets. He’s far from sick, in fact he’s in rude health, preparing to overwinter in sunny Broadstairs. His shrieking call will replace the herring gulls’ squeals until the New Year. It’s me that’s sick as a parrot, having taken a turn for the worst in New York. I don’t half choose my locations to go down with gastroenteritis. Bloomingdales and a Boeing 747 are not great places to be when feeling off colour, hence my state of collapse on arrival back in the UK. I hope to be on the mend soon and back with festive posts of a more healthy nature.

For those of you resident in the UK, you might like to tune in to Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas on December 9th at 8pm on Channel 4 to see yours truly doing a little turn. More on that shortly….
