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.

Good news and thank you

I have good news - I still have my job!   Yay!  I am so thrilled.  I am not yet quite ready to retire and I oh so didn't want to leave my second successful career in publishing (after a 28 year career as a teacher) in this way.

So, all good news.

I want to thank you all so much for your friendship and support - it has been so wonderful for me to know that so many people around the world have been praying for me.


I would like to beg your indulgence a little more and ask that you still pray for my Dear Mum (91) who is slowly fading away.  As I was away for work in Sydney last weekend I haven't been able to visit for a couple of weeks.  My DSister 1 rang me yesterday and said that since seeing her on Sat to Thursday Mum had deteriorated greatly.  She has lost 11 kilos in a week (fluid) and now only weighs 35 kg.  Apparently she is quite skeletal.  TraderVic and I will visit her on Saturday but I must admit I am quite dreading seeing her like this.

So, your continual prayers would be most welcome.

No pics today, sorry!

Talk to you all soon,

hugs,
