Sunday 11 December 2011: spot the difference
took littleA to the victorian christmas market at Erddig Hall this afternoon, and loved every minute. nain and taid showed her the owl display and the owlymanbirdyman plonked the smallestest tiniest one on a toddler-sized gauntlet on her arm and she stood there almost mesmerised in complete awe of the cute little thing, her little fingers tickling it ever-so-gently as she took everything in.
his name is Aqua, and he's a five year old tropical screech owl. apparently he was rescued from a breeder because he was too timid and nobody wanted him. littleA didn't stop chattering about him till the lights went out (and then some).
