AFFHO Congress 2015….Going!

March 18, 2015

Drumroll please!…. I am off to Canberra to attend  The 14th AustralianCongress on Genealogy and Heraldry. And very excited I am too. It was very much a last minute decision to attend. I have been following all the excitement as friends, acquaintences and bloggers register and prepare. Wishing that I could go also, all the while grumping and groaning that I couldn’t go, mainly due to problems caused by being away from work. Oh the joys of being self employed!

A couple of days ago, I bit the bullet and quickly registered and organised accommodation before anything else could come up that would make it impossible for me to get away.  I’m still in shock that I am Canberra bound.

Also, I’m very excited to be blogging this event. I really do love to blog, and have missed it.  Sometimes I stress  that my blog seems to be a bit directionless, tending to veer off on many tangents. But on giving it some thought, it occurred to me  that this is life. Rarely does life follow a straight path and we really never know what’s around the corner, which is pretty much the way my blog seems to be.

But for four days from March 27 -30, I will be focused entirely on blogging about Congress. I just can’t tell you how excited this is making me feel.


For many reasons, I have had to put my blog on hold for a while, mainly due to those dratted work issues again, and I really have misssed the writing and reading other blogs.

Blogger GeniAus has asked that bloggers discuss previous Congress’ that have been attended. This will be my first Australasian Congress, hence the excitement. Hopefully the first of many.
