One thanks and an oops

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Memes/blog awards etc

So…. the Most Esteemed Miss Vicky nominated me for an F-word award for best family blog (thanks!) and I promptly forgot to tell you all about it (oops.)

BTW, that’s “F” as in Feminist.

The first round of voting, um, over, so you can’t exactly VOTE.

What can I say? I’m all asnooze over here.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! 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.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!
