Hi ❣It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
Some years ago I was working in home nursery and then for a older neighbour. At that time she didn’t knew I was her neighbour. It was decided from my leader that we should not tell the patient that I was her neighbour either. Not before she was healthy and well again. The reason why this choice was made was for split work and private life as well as avoid having the patient call me for help outside of my working hours.
When someone is sick this can happen, and it would feel so easy for the patient to call me that was living so close.
After a while she got better and didn’t need the nursery help anymore and then I told her I was living in the same area as her. She did understood why I haven’t told her earlier when she was sick that I was her neighbour. But after she went well she did dropped by my home and patio now and then for a coffee.
She had a habit to drop by with birds in plastic bags to me too 😅. Even when I had guests from Norway she did dropped off a plastic bag with a bird inside 😅.
She have 3 cats and when she found birds in her garden she dropped them of to me so the cats shouldn’t eat the birds. It’s not so easy for cats to drop into my patio, so it’s a bit “safer” for birds to be here until they find out they want to fly away.
When I started to work from the office as a costumer service agent my neighbour was a bit disappointed, because I was not working shifts anymore, and it became a bit more difficult for her to drop by my patio for a coffee, because in general I was not home anymore at her coffe- time.
So I haven’t seen her for a while now, and of course the corona- situation also has something to do with that.
One afternoon when I was on my way out my older neighbour dropped by my patio again. It was nice to see her again, but also this time she brought a tiny little bird with her to give to me. I’m not sure why she think I’m a kind of “bird-lady”, but I took the bird this time too, and was actually a bit happy. Because this tiny little bird couldn’t fly away from me, like the other birds she has brought over to me. Probably something was wrong with one the wings.
Like I mention, I was on my way out, so I put the bird together with some plants and leafs. I even talk with the bird and told him/ her I needed to run some errands, but would be home as soon as possible.
I also found some water and bread to the bird before I went to do my errands. And I was actually a bit looking forward to take care of this bird. For me it felt like “the perfect” company at the moment 😊. Imagine to have a tiny little bird in my patio I could talk a bit with. Take a bit care of. Get some nice conversations together with 😊.
In my mind when I did my errands I actually a kind of created how to take care of this bird as best as I could. How to created a company together with someone who actually was not very “needy” at all ,- well at least in my mind 🐦. And how to made it a bit cozy and safe around the bird when she/ he was living in my patio. I even thought about contacting the veterinarian for the birds wing that was out of order.
But….all this nice and cozy thoughts and “plans” did changed a bit fast when I was back home 😳.
I found the tiny little bird dead close to the gate 😔. Cold and stiff. No hope for any possible to bring “life back” in the tiny little body.
I’m not sure what has happened with him/ her. Heartache? Sadness because I was gone? Missed me? Or maybe it was more sick then “just” the bad wing? I was just away from him/ her for a couple of hours ⏳.
I actually felt a bit sad. In my mind and imagination I had got the “perfect” company for me in my home now, and even before our company was started he/ she just past away from me? 😳
I buried it in the flower bed, near where we have buried two hamsters from before. At least it has some company there 🥀.
Small things during the day can create the day. This was just a small “event” in my day, first a happy “event”, something I was looking forward to, and then it became a bit sad. But that’s life. At least the bird looked peaceful 🐦.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
There can be a lots of company in a living creature 😊. Generally when it comes to different animal species 🐦. My company pasted away even before the company was started. That felt a bit sad, but that’s a part of the life 💚.
