Hello, Flamingo here! An Introduction to...ME!
‘Ahem, ahem’, Flamingo here everyone. I did rather like the idea of having my very own blog but alas it was not meant to be. However, I would like to point out I am in fact the LEAD in the title of this very website so it would not be right of me not to say a few words too.
The very day Nella was born I was flown into London in a wicker basket by a stork; all the way from the Caribbean coast in Colombia. I was a tiny, baby bird back then, not long hatched and just a little ball of pink fluff (I am now of course much more grown up and wise beyond my feathers). I have been Nella’s best friend ever since that day and we have spent many hours cuddled up together in her wicker basket. We do both enjoy a good cuddle, snuggled under a blanket with a warm bottle of milk.
Since arriving in London, I have discovered many things including how incredibly cold it is ALL the time and I need to keep my feathers toasty by the fire. I have also discovered (not that I like to brag of course) that I am the most exotic bird here in Wimbledon, for the most part I have only seen rather common birds; town pigeons, magpies and sparrows whose feathers are not lovely and pink like mine. Pink really is the best colour! Although I do rather admire the pelicans in St James park; they can carry all sorts of things in their large beaks, they even took me for a ride across the lake – such fun!
Since watching the entirety of The Crown on the most wonderful invention – the television, I have learnt all about England. I have grown rather accustomed to the great English tradition of drinking tea. A china tea set is in fact on the top of my Christmas list I very much hope Father Christmas does not break it coming down the chimney or I shall be most distraught. I do also very much enjoy a cucumber sandwich although it much better with some added smoked salmon.
Anywho, that’s a little about me to keep you going, I must fly off now, Nella has said we’re going to the park!
