The Fallen Bueno

This is still a sore topic but I think it’s time we face our troubled past so we can move on. Let me explain… The Bueno Incident of 2012. When Lee and I purchased a beef baguette from La Bottega to share, Heather made a purchase of her own – a tomato & bocconcini salad, […]

O Town

So we are back from our first ever trip to Ottawa, after staying with our friends Mike & Heather. My seriously ill husband made a small recovery and after my two fillings at the dentist on Friday morning we hit the road. Firstly, I blame Mike for calling it O Town, as I latched on […]
