Sad times in our household this morning: daughter's gerbil passed away during the night. He was a rescue gerbil. Gerbils are meant to be social creatures but he'd had been bullied a lot by his siblings so had to live alone. He was very sweet. RIP Little Fat Rick.

@Luke Sad indeed, sorry to hear it! Hope your daughter is holding up okay. Good on you for getting a rescue pet. #RIPLittleFatRick

@Luke I hope you appreciated the perfect symmetry of ''HE'S DEAD, DAD, HE'S DEAD. LOOK DAD. HE'S DEAD !' when the following 'ALIVE' bit.

That took me flipping ages.

Struck me there were so many more fun things to blog about when the kids lived at home.

@Luke 'Little Fat Rick' - RIP. Weird and quite sad to hear that small rodents indulge in bullying.
