Welcome to Mick's Mix

Welcome to my world. With all the rest of the world in chaos I have made myself a little piece of normal. So sit back and relax because I sure as heck am going to try.

"Life like a journey starts with a single step and is littered with stumbles." I am sure somebody keeps tripping me up.

My boys are both a source of joy and amusement to me and with so many memories there is so little space left in my head. When you get to my age you have to start brain dumping just to keep up (and these days it's seams to be all the work stuff I am dumping). Then there are grandchildren they are fun to spoil and they are a lot of stress punctuated with amusing moments.

About Me

I'm still working (just) and while a bit overweight I am very happy that I still have my health. The past few years have been a testing time for the family but we can still smile and enjoy life so all is good. I have taken up Genealogy and for the past few years have grown more interested with every new discovery. I have now reached a new point where I feel I need more skills to breach the brick walls (especially Ireland) so I have Just completed a "Diploma of Family History" with the University of Tasmania. It's funny how some things turn full circle for instance I now live in Victoria where one of my direct descendants arrived in the mid 1800's and I am taking up a course in Tasmania where another arrived in the early 1800's.
