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.

Autumn walk in Eaglemont....

Today was a good day.

This morning I took my 94 year old father shopping for some new clothes at David Jones in a large shopping mall.  We had such a good time together and the ladies at David Jones were so helpful that Dad left with three new pairs of trousers and two new merino wool jumpers.  Now he is all set for the winter!

We then had an enjoyable lunch together at a French Cafe, Laurent - yum!

This, of course, took several hours but when I got home, the afternoon was so nice that I went for a lovely Autumn walk.  Would you like to see some of the lovely wonders I saw on my walk?

Red autumn leaves:


A pink rose.

Doesn't this house look just like an Autumn house?


Two Asian statues guarding the gate to a secret garden.

                                        

.... and the secret garden has a tower!


 ,,,, and this is my favourite house in Eaglemont, what I call The Gingerbread House but is actually called The Officer House.




.... and as I walked home there was a wonderful view of my favourite city in the world, my hometown.... Melbourne!


I hope that you have enjoyed this walk with me.  It is so important to take time to enjoy the small things in life, don't you think?  Blessings on you all.


hugs,

We are waiting for spring to get here properly (it seems a little late), very strange to see others preparing for winter, when we are hoping for sun! xx Glad your dad is well x
