Short-lived…

I have mentioned in the past that I have several aquariums, and with that, lots of fish. On Saturday I bought two Tiger Hillstream Loaches. However, on Sunday, both were dead, no reason for this as my water was perfect, all filters were working, the water was fully oxygenated, and there are no diseases present,…

2 Years On…

Two years ago at 18:43 our beautiful girl Lilu crosses the doggie rainbow. We still miss her greatly as though it was yesterday. She will remain in our hearts forever. DeathDogsfamilyfriendLiluloved

One Year On…

No daft titles here today. A year has flown by since Lilu passed away.  It is amazing how fast that seems to have gone.  8760 hours, that have ticked away without increasing speed, but in our minds, it seems like only yesterday we said goodbye to her and watched her silently pass from this world…

Best Friends…

As you will know, Lilu passed away on 27th September.  Even though it is just under 4 weeks since her passing, it is still quite raw.  M and I were looking at photos and videos of her the other day, both smiling and remembering the good times we had with her, and that she was…

Aquarium…

After our jaunt to unexotic lands, I found on our return that I had lost a few fish, one of my reedfish, a rainbow shark, an oranda and two mollys. Needless to say, I was not happy at all, these things are not cheap to buy and the oranda I had had for years. I tested…

Sadness and horror hits London, again!

In the last few months, and mainly the last several weeks we in the UK have seen some dreadful things happening.  Terrorism in London and Manchester, and today we woke to the latest tragedy to hit, the terrible fire in the 24 floor Grenfell Tower in West London. My heart goes out to all those affected.…

The first week of this month we say Hello to my new Nephew and Goodbye to my Great Uncle. Early hours of 3rd June my little brother and his partner had their first baby together. This is baby T having a well earned sleep. Poor L was in labour for since 1st June when she…
