Fish update

I’d not mentioned anything about the fish recently, but I had a pretty good reason why. A few weeks ago, I woke up and went about on my usual routine of getting out of bed, zombie shuffling towards the fish tank, and then feeding the fish. Only this time, I […]

For those that are new…

Why hello there I thought I’d take this opportunity to re-introduce myself. First of all, welcome to my Blog, ‘A Bug’s Life’. I started this Blog two years ago while I was still doing my Ph. D in Bacteriology, with the intention of writing about what life was like as […]

Autumn garden update 🍂🍁🌱

It’s been some time since my last garden update, but this is what’s currently going on in the garden beds. Right hand side garden bed has some dwarf broccoli, Italian parsley, sugar snap peas, a lone strawberry plant, and some rockets. I also threw in some forget-me-not seeds before, just […]

Vindication

This time last year, my partner and I were looking forward to one thing: Camping 🏕 We love going during winter, because it’s cold, wet, and generally miserable, which increases the chances of us having the area to ourselves. Most other people don’t like the cold and wet- but we… […]

Fish update 🐟

Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish

Previously, on ‘A Bug’s Life’, I wrote an update on my latest hobby. Now, in that, I alluded to the need to ‘cycle’ the tank, because it’s brand new and it’s much better to have this going before I put live fish in it. So, what is this ‘cycling’ I […]

Progress on the new hobby

A little while ago, I posted about my new hobby. That’s right. A tank full of water. It’s very exciting. Just kidding! As entertaining as it is to have a tank full of water, the end goal is to obviously have some fish in it. I don’t want it to […]
