In December 2021 I had a very special, and unusual, request by text. The message asked ‘Hello bird Lady of Fowey 🙂 Can an owl deliver a letter?’
Well, that got my attention straight away! The details were that his wife’s birthday was on New Year’s Eve and he wanted to suprise her with an invitation to a night away at Hogwarts Harry Potter World for Valentine’s Day [what a lovely husband!]. Of course to make the moment really perfect he needed an owl to deliver this news, and so he sent me that first message.
I asked what he had in mind – to which he replied he had no idea! So we made a plan, luckily he lived locally to me. I would knock on their door at 2pm on New Year’s Eve with Peanut and a note attached to his anklet. The husband was to make sure his wife answered the door and Peanut would do the rest!
So we did exactly that, it worked like clockwork and as you can see by the huge smiles this special birthday treat was a massive success!
