Chicken, meet head

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Home/reno

Mark and I are spending the day packing, and generally freaking out about all the things we need to do before we move back into our house TOMORROW.

Tomorrow, just for kicks (and much to Mark’s dismay I’m sure), I will be liveblogging the big day uploading pics to my Flickr set every hour on the hour (but not adding to the blog because I have my doubts that we’ll have an Internet connection)…  so do check it tomorrow, or follow #FishbowlReno on Twitter. Here we gooooo!

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 (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. 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.
