During my last day of annual leave, I went shopping in town. The sales were very disappointing, so I bought very little. The most interesting purchase that day was from the pet shop, where I acquired two goldfish to accompany the Danios currently in the tank.

I wanted to get one large goldfish, but was advised against it by the lady in the shop as they apparently bully the other fish. I am not sure what this involves – probably name calling and stealing of dinner money.

On reflection, I think it would have been better to ignore the advice of the shop assistant and buy a shark. The two fish I did buy are extremely timid and despite being larger than the Danio’s they tank share with, are always hiding.

When feeding time commences – just before I go to bed, so within minutes of writing this blog – the Danios gorge themselves on the delicious fish flakes I drop into the water. The goldfish are too scared to swim to the top and eat. How long this will go on, I don’t know. But if the problem persists, the two hiding goldfish may become two floating goldfish.

Feeding time would have been more fun with a bigger fish

    That’s the last referee who gave a penalty against Manchester United.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
