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.

Day trip to Daylesford Part Two ....

.... after all of hard work Antiquing, it was time for lunch at Bad Habits Cafe at the Convent Gallery in Daylesford.

It is such a beautiful old building with gorgeous gardens!




















My lunch.... Chicken and Leek in filo pastry with  salad.


Marie's lunch... Calamari salad


Our shared dessert - beautiful fresh scones with jam and cream.



I hope that you enjoyed the pictures, next post I will show you the art gallery at the Convent.

Have a great day (it is a wild and stormy day today here in Melbourne).

Lovely photos, Kaye. It's probably over 20 years since I've been there.
