Standing among grate-ness
Huge congratulations to Eric Agyeman from PVBS Clothing for his winning pitch. PVBS sell fabulous, swanky, end-of-school jackets to fund education programs in Ghana and Cambodia (as well as a bunch of other cool clothing). Tell your Year 6 and Year 12 school fundraising committees and your corporate gift purchasers: these are world-changing jackets you can wear with pride (and they look awesome too!)
I'm a little less proud of my difficulty with grate-ness. I love high heeled shoes... well, I love shoes generally, but particularly those with heels. I rarely consider practicality when it comes to footwear. And so at first I did not consider the ever-so-stylish floor grates in Federation Square. I spent quite some time considering them when I was on my hands and knees trying to yank my empty shoe out of a hole in the floor. Unfortunately, a large group of teenage boys, there on a school excursion, spent some time considering me, considering the floor. I hopped away as quickly as I could.
If you're having to hop as quickly as you can may I suggest next week's menu?
