|Prudence: "Follow me girls ~ do keep up Babs, I'm in charge now!"|
|Prudence: "ooooh, hello ~ what you doing Mum??"|
|Me: "look at the mess you're making!" |
Babs: "face?? bothered??"
|Abigail: "I do like to keep my feathers in tip-top condition, you know"|
|Me: "what you doing Abigail??" |
Abigail: "oh, nothing, nothing at all for you to worry about Mum...just thinking my deep and meaningful chickeny thoughts, that's all"
|Abigail: "like I always say, you can't ever possibly be bored if you have a good supply of broken flowerpots to poke about in!"|
|Abigail: "look Mum, I can stand on one leg!" |
Me: "oh well done my clever little chickadee!"
|Babs: "what did she say Mum??? Hey Prudence, I think Abigail is talking about us behind our backs!" |
