A British company is offering to provide stab-proof school uniforms, lined with the same material used by soldiers. BladeRunner has added the Kevlar-lined uniforms to a range of clothing that includes knife-resistant hooded tops, T-shirts and gloves.
Today I couldn't believe my ears though when one woman who is hardly ever at work, because she's always on sick leave, was bragging loudly about the fact that she now qualifies for long service leave and is going to take it soon! She kept saying at the top of her voice "I'm filling out my long service form" and "I'm going on long service leave". Though I don't think anyone will notice any difference between her being on long service leave or not?! ;)

Firstly I saw "In the Company of Actors" which is an Australian documentary about the creation of theatre - from early rehearsals through to opening night in New York. It was interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes. The only problem with the film was that it left me wanting to actually go see the play!
Secondly I saw "Hana" which is a Japanese movie about a young man who is expected to avenge his father's death. I enjoyed this movie but it was very confusing. There were a few stories within the one movie and I found it hard to remember who was who and what they were doing!
Lastly I saw "The Armstrongs" which is a UK documentary about a couple who run a company but treat their staff appallingly. It was very funny! I can't believe that it's real?!

Anyway, the police said that they might have caught the guy who robbed us (while he was robbing someone else). Though they can't charge him with the robberies of our place cos they don't have enough evidence. I'm just hoping he goes to jail!

Last Sunday (29th July) I attended my cousin Andrew’s wedding. The ceremony and reception were intimate and incorporated some of Jenny’s Chinese traditions. It's the first wedding I've attended since Greg and I got married and it was great to experience a wedding with the knowledge of everything that goes on behind the scenes.
