Sad news on my fishy front.Â Wanda (my faithful companion of 7 months) sadly passed away last week while I was on leave from work.Â I only found this out yesterday when Mr Miserable decided to phone me from work and let me know that the fish was dead and that he thought Wanda had been dead for a week cos he hadn’t moved at all and was just lying at the bottom of the tank.
Yes I realise it mayÂ have been a little irresponsible for me to go on leave without my fish, and to leave him in the (murderous) hands of Mr Miserable, but I really thought that he would look after Wanda – apparently I was wrong!Â So today I had to come into work and bury my fish,Â (look out Bolivar, Wanda is heading your way) and clean his (yes I did say his – Wanda was a male fish, who had identity crisis – hence the name)Â tank out.Â So it is with a heavy heart that I do this post and say goodbye once and for all to my faithful little friend.Â He will be missed.Â Even sadder is the fact that the one photo that I had of Wanda is gone.Â Lost forever now.Â I’m crying.

Poor, poor Wanda…
I once had a canary that died from lack of attention…either that or the bloody great redback spider we found under her food bowl – we don’t know to this day…
RIP to our lost friends.
