Vibram Lontra

Look what I got for Xmas - a new set of Vibram shoes.  The Lontra is an insulated and weather-proof design - meaning I can wear all year round, unlike my KSOs that leaked a little.  The cuff makes them a bit harder to put on but they are super-comfy once you are there.  Thanks to K and L for sourcing in the US and shipping :)

Thanks to S and P I have just received a Lightskin seat post.  This incorporates a set of multi-function LEDs directly into, and flush with, the seat post itself.  The batteries pop in at the bottom of the tube.  Perfect for my folding bike where external lights are a pain.  Currently I can only find this for sale in Singapore for 33.9mm, but there were some other sizes on ebay.

XMas 2012

We've gone ultra-traditional with our XMas tree this year but I think it looks really nice as a result.  We got the tree from Dane End Farm (, locally grown and fresh cut and a pretty good price!
