So I need to admit something… I have fads and obsessions for things. I see something I like then buy everything I see in the theme/style. My new one is parrots. You could say it’s because I’m ‘chirpy’ and like to ‘tweet’. Not funny? Ok the truth is my all time favourite film is Mary Poppins. When I was little I even had a little brown carpet bag that I stored my blue sweets and blu tack in. (Yes I know, another obsession). I used to pretend it was magic like hers and would pretend to pull lots of things out of it. I always wanted the parrot umbrella, little did I know that one day I’d get one.
This day a year ago, 24th August I surprised my sister to theatre tickets to go and see Mary Poppins at the Theatre Royal Plymouth. As you can imagine I was very excited and somehow managed to keep it a secret right up until a few hours before the performance when I gave her the tickets. We both used to watch the film together on repeat, I suppose just like the little girls nowadays watch and sing along to Frozen. The show was absolutely amazing! It’s a must see performance. I’m hoping they come back to Plymouth as I will definitely book tickets and watch it again. I highly recommend it.
The merchandise sold at the shows were amazing aswell. I brought a programme, bag and a large parrot umbrella! Yes a parrot umbrella! I wanted the snow globe and Bert the bear but didn’t have enough money on me at the time.
My sister brought me a soft Mary Poppins toy doll for Christmas from Disney Store. She’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
These were the only parrot things I had until I went shopping in The Range. I went to look for craft things but got sidetracked looking at duvet sets. I came across a white duvet cover with brought colourful flowers, leaves and parrots all over. I thought to myself how it wouldn’t match my room but wanted it anyway. I have considered redecorating but I can’t do that every time I see a new bedding set or get a new fad can I.
Sorry about the creases it’s been slept in. ‘Tweet’ ‘twoo’ looks pretty don’t you think? Still not funny? booo ok.
My second purchase was from Asda. It may not be to everyone’s taste but I fell in love. My house is mainly duck egg blue, the kitchen, living room and bathroom were… Until now.
How amazing does this look? ‘Everybirdy’ needs a change now and again, it gets abit boring if you don’t ‘branch’ out once in a while. I think it looks ‘flamazing’. Haha ok i’ll stop the rubbish bird jokes.
I love the blue budgies. Reminds me of a blue budgie named Joey I had as a toddler, well I don’t remember it exactly but have seen photos of him so I picture him when I see budgies. He lived in a lilac/grey oval shaped cage hanging from the ceiling. I love seeing old photographs and being able to look back on memories you would never be able to remember.
