Here we go again. Jesska makes a plan and life makes it impossible to see it through. *** At the end of August I bought new fish. They were quite expensive as cheap fish go (nothing like as expensive as posh koi) and quite a luxury considering that I don’t “need” fish for anything. I […]
Just because I don’t remember putting pictures of it up before..
(Another one from the drafts folder) “I hate satnags And traffic And running out of fuel And hotel receptionists who have to show you how the lights work in your room And not finding anywhere to park And people who don’t put signs up to let you know where you’re going And the lack of […]
This morning I bought 10 chocolate catfish. They are small and dark brown and incredibly cute. The saleslady at the fish market said they’d grow to approximately 4-5cm long – perfect for my tank. I had no signal in the salesroom, so I couldn’t check anything online. I bought the fish, based purely on sight […]
One shook with laughter and said he’d never heard of happy fish before.
DB says we can’t have a cat. He didn’t say anything about catfish. I now have 18 – and counting 🙂 *** On the grounds that I am liable to become boring for most readers who don’t like fish, I’m going to put future posts about fish onto their own site. Here are some pictures […]
There are a few things I’m really good at. Catching fish isn’t one of them. In fact, it’s one of the things I’m worst at. *** With most of the other things I’m worst at (or just bad at), I’m generally so bad because I don’t practice enough (or ever) or because I don’t much […]
We have babies! Fish babies! 😉 (Can you tell I’m excited yet?) At least 3 of them! (From approximately 500 eggs, according to the fish website I consulted) Totally unexpected too… *** On Tuesday I came back from England. I was there for a week and had been travelling in Germany for a few days […]
I am most definitely not a morning person. DB most definitely is. During the week I have to be dressed, breakfasted and out of the house by 7am (7:10 at the very latest), and DB demands that I eat breakfast with him at least once per weekend which involves being up by just gone 8. […]
“I think that’s 12” he said, from the top step of a wobbly stepladder. “Although they won’t stay still long enough for me to count them properly. I haven’t counted the rest, but there’s no way there’s another 20 in there”. “That’s ok, we’ll take them all, even if there aren’t going to be as […]
First find your optician… They are liable to be situated in a second floor office, above a restaurant. There might be a sign in the window, but it won’t be visible from the pavement, unless you walk along the other side of the road. The staircase will have no mention of the optician’s existence, but […]
We started with the glass. The DB’s father had 2 aquariums, neither of which was in use. The short version would be: we chose one, washed it out and took it home. The real life version was more complicated but that’s not relevant here.. 🙂 Anyway. We had an aquarium we wanted to use. DB […]
And another one from the draft folder… (late March 2014) *** The DB was given an aquarium a few years ago*. He bought 5 different sorts of fish, some lumpy bits of wood and some fish food and has looked after the fish ever since. Then he met me. He showed me the aquarium and […]
