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.

Farmer's Market


 TraderVic and I happened to stumble over a Farmer's Market at a local primary school yesterday morning.  This is the bounty of the Earth which we came home with:

Look at the size of those tomatoes!  And some Nicola potatoes to bake tonight!


 Last night we had this Crostata Mezza Mezza which is a frittata on a pizza base.  We had it with the lovely lettuce we bought.  Yum!

Well, the view out of my bedroom window is just getting wetter and wetter!  You know that heatwave I was complaining about the other day - it has broken and now we are having torrential rain! Careful what you wish for!



The final piece of news I have today is that Barbara of To Stitch or not to stitch is having a Happy Birthday Giveaway, you can check it out here.

Well, that is all from me, I hope that IHSW is going well for you all.

hugs,

Oh yummy. I love fresh salads and vegetables.
You must be so glad that the heat wave is over for now. But that rain shouldn't be too torrential, lol. But it's better than more days of heat.
