Return to Oz: Smith family news

The time has come for us to depart Scotland and return to Sydney. After the better part of five years, we're sad to be leaving such a beautiful city and so many wonderful friends. At the same time, we've been missing antipodean friends and family and now eagerly anticipate many reunions. We'll gradually be making our journey during May.

I am still en route on my PhD odyssey, though am hoping my wanderings reach a conclusion somewhat faster than those of Odysseus. Regular blogging will resume once we've polished off our packing and peregrinations.
