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.

Afternoon Tea....

... on Sunday, my DF Linda came over for afternoon tea, so I made tea in the pot with some lovely Earl Grey Tea my DF, Marita, had brought back from Sri Lanka for me....


I got out the good china.....




 ... and, of course, baked a teacake....


Lovely!


Join me for a cuppa?

hugs,

P.S. Don't forget that currently I am MIA in Perth.

I am addicted to tea! I usually get lazy and make just a cup but love when friends come over so I can use my cast iron teapot.

Your teapot is so pretty and perfect! I love tea and have always imagines owning one like yours. Maybe someday I'll own a delicate pink one.

What a lovely tea set-up! Beatuiful pieces...

I can't believe you got to meet Dawn French; I absolutely loved her as the vicar...and she was equally hilarious in the Harry Potter movie!

Enjoy Perth, and be safe.

How terribly civilised and thoroughly English! All you needed was cucumber sandwiches with the crusts removed.

All served by Clara in the Parlour.

Linda said...
