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.

Thank you, a few answers and a new SAL


.... thank you so much everyone for your kind comments about my new haircut.  I had quite a lot cut off so it was quite a big decision.  I am very pleased with my new "do" but it is lovely to get some validation from my lovely bloggy friends.

..... also, I see that I have some great NEW bloggy friends, thanks for following me - I always love to make new friends in blogland and I promise that I will check out your blogs when I get the chance, if I haven't done so already.

Re the Travelling Pattern, I forgot to tell you - when I finish it will be travelling on - so watch this space for a chance to win the TP.

Oh, dear, or Oh Whoopie! I have joined another SAL.  This one is a Gingerbread SAL hosted by the lovely Agneta - you can check it out further via the cute SAL button on my sidebar.

... and lastly, there were quite a few questions about where I work and what I do for a living, so here are some answers for you:

I work for one of the largest publishing firms in the world.  It is a global company with offices in over 60 countries around the world.  We publish both trade (novels, cookbooks, etc) and educational publications.  I was a teacher of History, English, Geography and also a teacher-librarian for about 28 years before I was headhunted by my present employer to work on publishing History books for the new Australian Curriculum.

The new offices brings together around 470 people from the Trade division and the educational publishing division under one roof in a purpose-renovated 5 Green star heritage building - cool, hey!

Thanks for visiting,

hugs,
