We’re having terrible weather here at the moment. The rain is relentless and we have the biggest thunderstorm I’ve seen in ages. The thunder is so loud our windows are rattling! It’s cool.
The TV is on at the moment and I’m watching Film 2006. During the news section, there was a very quick story about a film we’d all be interested in. It’s called the allotment and it’s written by the same people who did 24 Hour Party People and A Cock and Bull Story so it should be pretty good. Nice cast too.
Sunday morning was spent up at the lovely garden centres at Crews Hill. I’ve managed to get my garlic and onion sets for the winter but the best thing was this. The fish tank Ian currently uses is a bit rubbish. The pump doesn’t work properly and is so loud you can still hear it at the other side of the flat when all the doors are closed. It was quite annoying, especially if it was the middle of the night and you blearily stumble into the kitchen looking for a glass of water only to be greeted by the sound of a big drill. Ian must have the wort headache in the world.
So, we bought him a new home. It’s bigger, quieter the filter is better and it’s much kinder for the fish really. Here is a picture of Ian having a swim:
But a shiny new tank wasn’t the only thing! No! We decided that Ian was a bit lonely. So we bought him a friend! Meet Angus!:
He has the knack of looking grumpy all the time.
Angus wasn’r the only fish to arrive! Welcome Stripy!
It’s not the most imaginative name I know, but it suits him.
Here’s them all together:
Ahhh. One big happy family. Well, t least they are now. Ian didn’t take to them much to begin with and started headbutting them when they were introduced, but he’s getting much more used to them now and once we get more gravel and a couple more plants they’re gping to be some of the best pets in the world! Possibly.
