I am just curious about how you spend "quality time" with your fid. I like to relax on my recliner with Bennie on my chest. He walks around, sometimes on my arm or hand and chirps or talks. If he's in the mood, he'll let me give him "Scritches" or tickles as I call them. When I do dishes, he joins me by sitting on my dish drainer and keeps me company. ( i have to keep an eye on him there; some dishes need a second wash!) If I am working in my apartment, sometimes he'll fly over and land on my head. I really enjoy my cockatiel's companionship!
