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.

Vale Eleanor....

.......my dear, gorgeous mother passed away peacefully on Monday, 25th November, 2013 at 11.55 am after many long months of illness.



I feel so sad but so relieved that her suffering is at an end.  My dear Dad is very sad but coping so far.  So hard for him to lose the love of his life after 67 years of marriage!

Thank you again so much to everyone for your love, support and prayers - they have buoyed me up during this difficult time.

Blessings everyone,
