Moving on with this update, let’s begin with some of the happenings in my life over the past year which have kept me from keeping up-to-date with my online blog duties. Firstly, it’s been a busy year moving our family of ten to a larger house and adjusting to a new town.

Barbara Sansoni designs
"Our products are about creation & design. They are about the inspiration and influence at work behind our intense passion for colour and textiles", Barbara Sansoni, founder of Barefoot Sri lanka.
In 1958, Barbara Sansoni, a colourist & artist, created the Barefoot concept out of a need for a rehabilition program for young Sri lankan woman who had limited schooling and skills. Today Barefoot is a premier textile design company exporting exquisite hand woven fabrics, toys, linen, and clothing worldwide.
Barefoot Artisans are dedicaed weavers and needlewomen who, without time constraints of mass production, are able to produce premium quality workmanship. Barefoot Sri lanka apposes exploitive practices. Each artisan earns a real wage enabling them to support their families with self-respect and dignity.
100% hand woven fabric – 100% hand made – 100% natural fibres
Swiss dyes used are non-toxic & colourfast.
It’s always good to highlight a worthy cause and the everyday people who are implementing inspirational working solutions. These toys are top quality products and I have no doubt they will last until the girls want to pass them on to their own children. So if you are looking for a unique gift for that special occasion, give Barefoot a look. You can also visit Barefoot Australia.
In August last year Reanimated Residue Multimedia Studios invested in some environmentally friendly personal transportation vehicles in the form of three Dyno electric bicycles. They have saved us so much money in taxi fares and have completed some 2000km each already. These bikes have changed our life. Here’s a couple of pics. Read a complete review and Q&A on our website.

I mentioned earlier my husband’s hobby so heres a couple of pics from our aquarium. These pics are a bit old – again around Oct/Nov 2007 – so the fish have grown somewhat since and need a new tank already. I tell you it’s a scarey thing to feed these critters, let alone putting your whole arm in the tank to rearrange the neighbourhood ornaments. I’ve always enjoyed watching the community interaction of fish. I can sit for hours captivated by their little domestic disputes and mating rituals. Hmmm … I think I mite have been watching too many David Attenborough documentaries lately.
Anyway, when I get a new camera I’ll be able to share some newer photos, but for now let me introduce you to our tank of territorial predators.

Well that’s a pretty good start for an update … but I’ve got plenty of new stuff to write about so I’ll be back a few more times over the coming weeks. I hope all the mum’s out there had a fabulous day yesterday for Mother’s Day 2008! Anyway, until next time, Cheers!
