Looking After Fish + Car Up-Keep

I’ve never looked after fish before. Fish, although cute, are not my kind of pet. I have been fascinated with trying to find the baby fish that have been born. You may guess that I don’t have fish. But my parents do.

They’re going away for a week. The dogs, no problem. The axolotl, I’ve got used to. The fish are new ones; feed twice a day and keep the tank cool in this crazy hot weather. It’ll be a learning experience.


Most of my day went without a hitch. Then at 5 past 4, my mum and step-dad came home to tell me my tyre was flat. I went to pump it up but after looking at it, there had what looked like a nail in it.

10 past 4, on a Saturday, I’m Googling car tyre places that are open. Only one I found online that was still open in my area. On my way, I saw an independent one still open. Arriving at 20 past 4, 10 minutes before they close, the tyre was unrepairable. It needed a new tyre.

After checking all my tyres, my front two were nearly illegal. I ended up having 4 new tyres all the way around, wheel alignment and tracking done. This was an hour and a half before I needed to be at my first customer.

Bless the gentleman, he did the job even though he was due to close. He saved me this evening. I only just made it to my 1st customer on time. I was happy with his work and also the price. I would definitely go there again.

While working, I noticed my oil light taking a few more seconds to turn off. Guess what’s on my to-do list tomorrow. As well as booking my car into the garage for its MOT. I think I need to learn more about the up-keep of my car. I’ve been driving for 10 years. I suppose I should start.
