Design Chick's Blogaboo!

Friends, family, blog world, I am sad to announce that my fellow cooworker, Robin McNicoll has decided to leave me. WHAT?! NO! HOW? BUT I THOUGHT YOU TWO WERE INSEPARABLE!
So did I, I had even built a cottage in muskoka for us to blog in and grow old together. But alas, her love for me has hardened like a chocolaty shell over a soft vanilla ball from dairy queen. A brick of chedder cheese that wasn’t re-wrapped properly, so the end of it is dark and inedible. Dark like my very soul at this very moment. ROBIN DONT GO! DONT LEAVE ME! Who am I to laugh with, raise a child with, and most importantly, ride a ferry with. oh how you loved slow boats.

I leave you with a song that I feel sums up our relationship. There have been ups and downs, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried. mostly cried, but by god you are my hero. You are the wind beneath my wings.

Farewell sweet friend.


So we frequent the Fortinos in downtown oakville.  Today was like any other day.  We walked to fortinos, chatted about our lives, the weather, our weekends.  Little did we know our lives were about to change forever.
As we approached Fortinos we noticed a strange noise coming from the building.  Some might say it sounded exactly like a fire alarm.  We decided that we really needed hummus so we continued on, ignoring the earth shattering noise.  We got to the top of the escalater and witnessed pure chaos.  Grown men in tears. Women were frantically running toward the exits.  Several small children were rolling around in flames.  Fortino’s was on fire and we were literally at the heart of it all.  Being the extreme bloggers that we are we decided even in the midst of the crazyness we had to capture the moment on camera.  We took this picture before being carried out by firemen and given CPR.

Thankful we are all okay.   It could have been a lot worse.  We all feel closer  because of it.  We’ve developed a bond that will never be broken.
