Thoughts of Bobby Vincent and Banana Cream Pies

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

We’re having company for dinner. Last night I found myself pre-making a banana cream pie ’round near midnight.

Today has been all about the floors.

The girls have chosen to listen to an old Bobby Vinton polka album while we tidy.

 “I don’t want her you can have her she’s too fat for me, she’s too fat for me, she’s too fat for me …”

I think I am going mental.

I’ll let you know how the pie turns out.

Are they playing it at 45 RPM like there were doing for me on Saturday while I was trying to work ? If not, you have not lived yet.

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.
