I have pm'd you - wow what a small world!
My hubby's family history is mainly in Steppingley and he went to school in Harlington!
I used to work in the Luton Hoo grounds too!
We've just returned from a trip back to the UK. When I get my PC up and running that has my photos's on, I will put up a post of my experience and how I found the place. Was rather nostalgic but didn't make us want to up roots and return. Home is here now.
How funny that you also have a parrot, we own an Eclectus parrot called Ronnie - who is a right pain at the moment, lol
Thanks for the pm Moosh! Hilarious - I've forwarded to my mum (who's still in Steppingley! she'll find it very weird!)
My parrot is a green cheeked conure - called Darwin! He too is being a pain at the moment, more demanding than the children some days! Hand reared and very greedy!
I'd love an electus but never had birds before so thought I'd start off small (and normally fairly quiet!) and go from there - definitely had to have a parrot - because well you can! Not very common in England!
