About Me

Nowadays  known as the Surfcoastwombat or just simply plain old JC!

jc-hs

I am a retired IT Consultant and Carer. Having lost my first wife to Multiple System Atrophy (MSA),  I have been fortunate to marry successfully for a second time.

We took a “seachange” and moved to Anglesea where I became the local computer “fixit man” – one way to get to know the locals!  But I have retired from that now to concentrate on my genealogy hobby.

I have visited many countries and lived in several of them. I have always worked, and I would like to think diligently, I have raised a family and I have been a 24 x 7 Carer. I have 75 years of hindsight and hard earned experience.

I hope the ramblings on my blog will find some appreciation among those who visit these web pages.
