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.

Christmas in July packages arrived.........oooohh so tempting!

I have taken part in two Christmas in July swaps this year, one run by Cheryll and one by Kim, they have both been awesome Swap Mamas, thank you so much, ladies for all your hard work.

So, both parcels have arrived safely and oh, boy, I have been spoilt!

This package arrived from Iowa, U.S. on Wednesday.....





With lots of goodies inside for me to fondle and squish!



Then on Friday, this package arrived from a mystery Aussie elf...






oooh, so many lovely gifties, I have been spoilt!  Lucky me!  But can I wait until the 25th July to open?

hugs,



P.S.Off to Ballarat this morning to visit my Uncle and Aunt for the weekend - what fun!
