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.

I am going to be....

a tad busy!

I can tell you I am rather in shock - in a good way, of course.  You may remember from this post that DS1 and his girlfriend became engaged a few months ago.  Well, DS1 returned from meeting her family in Taiwan last week and within 24 hours it was all go on a January wedding in Australia  - yes, that is next January!  With a wedding in Taiwan to follow in December, 2015.  After all, why have one wedding, when you can have two?  To honour both cultures.

Gorgeous pic of my daughter-in-law to be, they are at the Baseball in Taiwan (hence the straw)
So, as this first wedding is in Australia, TraderVic and I are helping them organise it (well, mainly me, of course) - two months to organise a wedding - no sweat!

Sadly, for us, about two days after the January wedding, they will be moving up to Queensland for DS1 to take up a teaching post there.  So, there will be lots of tears in January - both happy and sad!

So, if my blog posts are a bit erratic over the next few months, you will know why!

However, we have swung into gear.  We have already found a gorgeous venue - Studley Park Boathouse, Kew.



In fact, on Saturday, we chose and booked  a venue, organised hair and makeup for the bride and her four bridesmaids, chose a wedding cake and organised a wedding photographer! Not bad for one day's work. (I also fitted in visiting my Dad for lunch and dinner and movie with some friends - lol!)

Well, I do have lots of other stuff to tell you and show you but the train is calling and I must go to work very shortly, so that will have to wait.  Probably until next week now as Marie and I are doing a belated Halloween night tour of the Melbourne General Cemetery tonight and Sat morning TraderVic and I are taking my Dad up to Ballarat for Sat/Sun to visit my uncle and aunt - should be fun.

Okay, gotta go, wish me lots of luck for these happy two months coming up.

hugs,

Wow, that is short notice on the wedding! Good luck getting everything set up and organized. I know it will be a wonderful occasion, although having the newlyweds move away right after will be sad.

Sounds like your doing just great with the organizing Kaye. But I'll wish you good luck with the rest of it.

Amazing news! I had two weddings too, in two different countries, but they were a week apart. It's going to be so much fun for you! I can't believe you got so much done in one day. Great job! :D

Thoeria said...

That is such happy news Kaye! Yes definitely a busy few months ahead to get everything organised!

Robyn of Oz said...

That is absolutely extraordinary! To be able to find a venue on what would be considered such short notice, is pretty darn amazing. It just goes to show that it is really meant to be!
The bright side of DS1 moving to Queensland is lovely holidays in winter. :)

What exciting and fun news for you!
You are really a "ball of fire," getting all of those things accomplished on Saturday!! Sounds like this will be an "easy task" for you!! (LOL--just kidding!)
Anyway, take some good vitamins and you'll be fine!
I LOVE the venue for the wedding--it looks really pretty!
Good luck on everything!

Congratulations !!! Two weddings - it is interesting, but why not two? The more, the more love:-)

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

Congratulations! I'm sure both weddings will be so much fun and so interesting to compare too.

I arranged my wedding in only three months but we did have the evening venue already because we ran a music venue then. We also sweet talked the vicar into letting us have the ceremony the morning of the church fete if we promised to be out by 1pm.

Looking forward to seeing your Mother of the Bride outfits.

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

Or Mother of The Groom, to be actually correct!

Caitlin @ Naughts Cross Stitches said...

Sounds like lots of fun :-D

Brigitte said...
