I’ve been travelling

And this is one of the things that followed me home :

 new pin

A more substantial update is coming. I promise. I am still wrassling with deadlines and such stuff, when all I really want to do is collapse in a big heap.

I think I deserve a treat after all of this hard work, don’t you?  Hmmm. I must think of something…

Sushi, no contest. Glad to know about the new on in Westboro.
I took my kids to Westboro beach over thirty years ago now.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
