As I told you in my last post I´ll try to save some money during the year. First I thought I could use the saved money to buy a new doll or new furniture. But last weekend something incredible happened. My husband "allowed" me to build an aviary in our garden.
I have to say that I have budgies since I´m nine years old. But everytime one bird dies you buy a new one and then the older bird dies, you buy a new one... it´s a never ending story. So we both decided we would not buy a new one when our 3 birds die. So Coco died and 1 year later Susi. Sammy was left alone...
And that made me so sad that I always asked my husband if I could get a friend for her. Maybe for 3 or 4 years. Last weekend he was kind of angry, because when he asked for my birthday wishes the first thing I said was: a budgie... This is always my first answer whenever he askes what I wish for.
He was a bit angry and said I should not say "budgie" everytime he asks. My answers was: As long as Sammy lives, this will always be my first answer.
Then he said: Well, budgies are a kind of hobby, right?! Like my saltwalter tank. If you save the money(~5000€) you can build an aviary in the garden. I guess he thinks i will never save so much money alone...
YAY, I didn´t need more.... In my head I was always thinking about what I would do, if I ever get the chance to do this. So there are already many ideas in my little brain :-)
I want to have 6 budgies and 4 cockatiels. And I already know where my first budgie and the first pair of cockatiels will come from. The rest should come frome animal shelters.
My aviary should look like the one Silvia at www.wellivilla.de has.
Same size, nearly the same layout for the house. But different decoration inside, of course.
I hope to have the money in one year, so we can start to build everything in early spring 2017.
To help me to spend less money on not so important things like clothes, jewelery or magazines, I started to go to the cash point every monday, get 40 € and then I put my credit card away. This way I only have 40 € every week. The money thats left on sunday gets into an extra pot and next monday i start with 40 € again. The left over money I can use to go shopping or later for my aviary too.
I am so excited about this. I want this aviary as soon as possible.
