Well, I’m back from Hill End, which was absolutely magical. The village and its surrounds surpassed all my expectations. I’ll post some photos soon.
Being back in Sydney means that I am back in the land of mobile phone reception (mores the pity). The first message that came through tonight was from my mum saying that trial has ended, but the jury came back as unable to reach a verdict; its a bloody hung jury. That means Dad has to testify at yet another re-trial (the 5th!) next February or March. Will this thing never be over?
