Well in less than 24 hrs I'll be hopping on a plane to NYC to meet fellow finches, some for the first time, for our first ever show at Surtex (15-17 May Jacob K.Javits Convention Centre). Today I am finishing some last minute jobs, making lists, packing (& probably repacking) and delivering my daughter, and her 2 guinea pigs, to grandparents in anticipation of our early start tomorrow. So excited to be exhibiting and I'm preparing myself for total visual overload!!!

If you're attending pop by and say hello at #booth 543 - we'd love to see you!
