About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Big News

Hello lovely bloggers,

Well, I have some big news to tell tonight.  I am so excited!  Next March DH and I are going on a long holiday to America!

I have been wanting to visit mainland U.S.A for a long time now and finally we are getting the opportunity to go.  We are travelling to New York City, then Washington, we are then being picked up in Washington  by friends who are going to take us on a road trip to Gettsyburg (I have always wanted to visit a Civil War battlefield) and then down to their home in Nashville, Tennessee and then the last stop is San Francisco and then home.  We will be gone for a whole month.  Have I mentioned that I am so excited!  U.S.A here we come!

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Wow, that's really exciting! You'll probably see more of the USA than a lot of us who live here... haha, it's easier to stay in one spot, I guess. :) I'm glad you have plenty of time for your trip!

Hi Kaye. What a wonderful trip you have planned. I think I'm jealous. LOL I've never been to any of those places. I do only live about 3 hours from San Francisco. Have fun. Take lots of pics.

I am so jealous! What an amazing holiday you have planned. Hope you are taking a suitcase just for the lovely stash you will buy over there!

Hubby and I are planning a trip to Hawaii and a couple of the US states for my 50th in 2014.. I can't wait and that is 3 years away so I can well imagine how excited you must be with only 4 months til you go ;o)

Look forward to hearing all about your trip when you get back!
