V V Rouleaux

The other week when I was down in London, we went into VV Rouleaux, home of ribbons and trims. I loved the racks of goodies in glorious colours. I ended up buying some feather birdies, which have come to rest on a branch I rescued from our tree-lined road.
The turquoise coloured one reminds me of the budgies my grandmother used to keep. As one died it would be replaced with another, but the funny thing was that they were all called Peter. Male or female it didn't matter. And she would call to them, "Petey, Petey, Petey, who's a good boy?" I like those old family memories.
