We had an unexpected guest this weekend. A bird named Skye. When I went to pick Crewe up from school on Friday they tricked me into taking the bird home for the weekend. It really has been fine and kids loved having him (or maybe it is a girl?) with us. I did move him/her downstairs when we had friends over on Saturday night. I thought our house was starting to smell like a zoo. For a small time Crewe had a pet. And that was good enough for us.
