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.

Strega Nonna...

....Well, I have definitely moved into the category of Toothless Old Crone after having my front tooth extracted yesterday!  Warning: this next pic is NOT pretty:


"I am gat-toothed" like Chaucer's The Wife of Bath and my face is still all puffed up from the anaesthetic!

I have a temporary tooth which I can wear now and then when TraderVic and I get back from our overseas trip I have to have an implant done.  Such fun! lol!

Now, if you are looking for my Grow Your Party Blog post, you can find it here.  Don't forget to enter in my Giveaway!

hugs,

Ouch! Perfect spot for a straw to fit through while having a frozen fruity drink! Where are you going on your trip?

Thoeria said...

Ouchie Kaye! Would you believe that there used to be parts of SA where it was the norm to remove perfectly healthy front teeth?! Anyway...I hope you enjoy your travels and get sorted soon!

Oh no -- so sorry you had to endure that trip to the dentist. I've been putting off a much needed visit to see mine but plan to call him today. Hope you get your implant soon and are feeling OK in the meantime.

Oh Kaye what is there to say. ... You're a brave lady sharing your photo. Hope the swelling has resolved. Keep cool ♥♥

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

Oww! Will you have an enamel implant or a gold one? You'd have to change your name to be more rapperish - K.D.P in da house!

Brigitte said...

Oh Kaye, poor you. This is not very funny for you, particularly not so shortly before your trip. I hope everything goes well with the temporary tooth.

Simply Victoria said...

You poor thing! Hope that your temporary will be comfortable and your mouth will heal quickly.

Faith... said...

Oh no...hope you were still able to enjoy your trip.
