Just finished talking to mum, back in NZ, getting the news. God, a slow steamship would have been quicker! A few weeks ago my sister Fiona was kicked unconscious by a colt. Woke up in the paddock with her cheek broken & now has a titanium plate holding everything together. You can't tell it's there, apparently. And Dad may have to get some sort of arterial shunt inserted because his arteries are clogged from decades of smoking, or he may lose a foot. They're waiting for specialist advice.

I should have called earlier - I usually do - but July kinda slid by, with everything that's been happening here. Although I'd have thought you'd let me know about anything significant, OK? *headdesk*
