LAURENCE is my name
Has that not got a beautiful sound to it?
Dear Natalie won the prize for coming up with my name. What a clever girl she is! Thank you, thank you Natalie! Other names were okay like - Percy, Percival, Bollo, Peter, Prince, Fabio, Leonardo - but did not suit quite as well.....I am so excited! I can hardly keep my feathers on!
I don't really want to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak, but I have to tell, that I am named after a certain flamboyant, eccentric, celebrity designer, who appeared on our Television screens recently......He is ever so British and I can't help feel so PROUD to be associated with him.
I just know that I shall live up to his name so....
PEACOCK LAURENCE IS MY NAME!!
To get on with my real job of reporting all the latest news............sorry about all that, ahem...strutting & keowwing!
