This post was inspired by Kate from Just Pirouette who has recently had a tottering time with her daughters goldfish,read about it here ,believe me you will laugh,although its not a funny subject (soz Kate,I don't mean the sad demise of your daughters goldfish was in any way funny,perhaps it's just the way you wrote it! ) 

This led me to reminisce about my pet Goldfish imaginatively called Goldie

I have spoke about Goldie before on Twitter 
and at this point in the story I would like to stress I was only very young when  this all happened and in no way,
shape or form am I a cruel heartless person who 
would willingly or knowingly hurt or
 cause pain to any animal,small or large...honestly. 
*Nods sincerely*
You do all believe me don't you, good....then I'll begin.

I have always loved animals and when I was about 4 or 5years old my mum brought me a goldfish.

In those days you didn't have tanks,water filters,air pumps etc all you had was a fish bowl,food and the goldfish and the fish were not all different types of goldfish like you can get today,they were just plain old orange goldfish.

And mine was called Goldie

And I loved it.

I loved it so much that I began to worry that it was lonely.

All alone in that big fish bowl.

Nobody to talk too.

And no toys to play with....

Aha... now that's where I stepped in,I could help find Goldie some toys as I had lots of toys that I could share with Goldie.

I chose little toy cars,metal cars and I diligently filled Goldies fishbowl with cars.

After a while I decided Goldie had got enough toys and I went to play somewhere else.

Sometime later my mum discovered the car filled fishbowl.

Unfortunately Goldie was no more

I'm not quite sure of the exact details of Goldies sad demise,needless to say though I was in serious trouble and I wasn't allowed another goldfish ever again.

Since writing about Goldie I have spoke to my mum and she did have a bit of a smile.

It seems like my recollections are accurate poor Goldie was much loved but perhaps a bit too well loved!

RIP Goldie ~ you were loved


  1. Hahahaha! Flippin fish! You'd think they'd be grateful for our love and attention, but no! They just snuff it! I think it's rather lovely that you cared for you fish SO much! RIP Goldie & Scratch, I hope you're swimming together somewhere in the sky.

    Actually, that thought scares me a little....

    Kate ;) xx
    Just Pirouette and Carry On...

  2. Morning Kate!Those words about Goldie and Scratch had me giggling every time I thought about them swimming together in the great fish pond in the sky!And now I feel so much happier because if Goldie has found Scratch he now has a friend...he is lonely no more!Yay!Perfectimondo...the jobs a good un!What a team they are :-) x

  3. Poor Goldie. But ungrateful bugger for not liking the cars!

    My brother peed in my fishtank when he was little and killed two of my fish, the other two he killed by over feeding. Little sod.
