my new friends

So what does a man facing imminent fatherhood and the associate financial ruin do?
He buys a fish tank of course.

Actually its an old tank I had in the garage. But as part of the process of moving my beloved and her daughter into chez rich their fish needed to move. And his tank was much to small. (yes, I know you successfully kept a pet goldfish for thirty seven years in a teacup, but on the whole bigger is better with fish tanks). So I set up this 3 foot fish emporium and bought Anthony (or Emily depending on what mood Hannah is in) a few friends.

Its a long time since I kept fish and I had forgotten how much pleasure can be had in just watching a fish tank. Needless to say the long list of outstanding jobs around chez rich did not get any smaller this weekend.

Good to see you blogging again Rich.
Good to see fish back in your life. But only one tank ? You used to have four !

Whilst it appears you have been busy last year mine was not so. At one point I thought sod it if he can't be bothered to blog I'll pop over to his local and see if its as good as its made out to be. (The family were away so I was at a loose end). Telford isn't far ... but I could go via Cannock and do some Mountain biking...go home via "The Crown" ...and "The Bell" all day Sunday...a perfect weekend.

Until I fall off - break my shoulder - visit the "Hospital of Death" - and have a little over two months off work....did make it to The Bell on the Sunday though...

And it was my right shoulder - so couldn't use a mouse / Keyboard / console / anything else useful that the right hand would do !

THIS WAS ALL YOUR keep blogging.

Best of luck with the future,
Love & Kisses
