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.

Weekend away in Olinda - Part 1

TraderVic and I have just returned from a lovely restful weekend break in beautiful Olinda in the Dandenong Ranges, only a short hour's drive from our home.  We stayed in a beautiful B@B called Annie Roe's in the Penthouse Apartment, no less!

Isn't it gorgeous?  Lovely views, luxury accommodation and a lovely big spa bath!















Must go watch some MasterChef now and do some stitching - I will fill you in on more of our adventures and post some stitching pics tomorrow night.

hugs,

Gosh Kaye looks like you had an incredible
mini holiday there. The pictures of your
accommodations are making me jealous!!
Oooohhh that tub and those fluffy towels
and various potions and liquids. Bliss!!
Give me some chocolates and a good book
or stack of magazines and I'd be set for the
night. Looking forward to seeing more of
your pictures.

Cheers!
