Despite my best efforts to save him one of my goldfish died this evening. I came into the kitchen to find he'd flipped himself up on to the top of the filter. Goodness knows how long he'd been there but he wasn't breathing much at all. Managed to build him a makeshift intensive care unit and he seemed to perk up but in the end I think he was too old to deal with my NHS care. I told him he should have gone private.
I'll miss the funny little guy.
