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.

94!

My Dear Dad turned 94 yesterday!  I know, amazing, isn't it?  Especially considering he spent 3 and a half years as a POW in WWII in the infamous Changi prison in Singapore.

 My Dear Sister 2, my DS1 and I took him out for dinner at a local Italian restaurant.


The food was delicious and beautifully presented.


DS1 had lamb shanks

I had Duck pilaf

Dear Dad had eye fillet steak

Dear Sister 2 had Chicken Caponata


Dad really enjoyed his steak!


My Dad is one of the most marvellous people that I know and I love him dearly.


Happy Birthday Dad, I love you.

hugs,

A very happy birthday to your dad ~ he looks wonderful and like the type of person that would be fun to sit and hear his stories! Like someone else said, a true hero! The dinners all looked delicious!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

If he can eat steak for this 94th Birthday he's doing alright!!

My grandad used to take his false teeth out to eat to "make them last longer". He did not often eat steak!
