Only Dead Fish


One of our goldfish has been looking a bit dodgy of late. You know, hanging round the surface, gulping a lot, that sort of thing. Yesterday we thought its hours were numbered when it turned upside down and sure enough it didn’t last the afternoon. Last night it rode the big porcelain express to the afterlife. My eldest (4 years old) hasn’t yet noticed that we are one fish down. I have a debate going on in my head right now about whether I can nip out tomorrow morning, buy a new fish, put it in the tank and pretend like nothing happened…
