Time To Say Adieu But Not Goodbye

It’s come that time of year when we have to say goodbye to the fish for the winter
We stopped feeding them a little while ago, because, forgive me for going all piscatorial on you, the cold weather makes the fishes digestive system slow down and if they have undigested food still in them it can rot in their small intestines and kill them, and that would just be too awful to contemplate.
Nigel was upset not to be at this special “arrivederci”, but we promised to say adieu to each and every one, by name, for him, before they disappear into the depths of the pool for the winter.
I also decided that it might also be an opportune moment to collapse the washing line and bring in the pegs ……..
I’m afraid there won’t be much comforting billowing going on from now on and the smell of  fresh washing, straight from the line, will be a stranger to us over the next month or so ….. such is life ….. as the seasons roll on …….!!!!

Mum's monkey is educational too.
Andy must have taught you well.

Winter has definitely arrived so it's goodbye to lots of things, fancy Nigel missing the fishy goodbyes.
