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.

RIP Phil Hughes

Australia is reeling at the untimely death of elite Cricketer, Phil Hughes, killed in a freakish accident when batting in a Sheffield Shield match.

You can read about it here.

So sad, my condolences to his family, friends and his team mates.  My heart goes out to the poor bowler as well.



hugs, Kaye

So very sad Kaye. We were shocked out here too when we heard the new. So very young. And that poor poor bowler,,,,how terrible for him. Such a terrible accident...a pure fluke accident - like the one that ended the career of Mark Boucher too. My thoughts and prayers to his family and to the young Abbot - 22 years old .....such a tragedy for both families

My British husband follows cricket and I know he was quite upset about this young man's death as well. When he mentioned the story to my (American) brothers-in-law who wouldn't know a wicked googly from Google, they'd both heard about it. I think the story is fully internationalized because of the magnitude of the tragedy. So very sad.

I happened across the news story and then saw some tweets about Phil Hughes. And I went to read about his tragic death in more depth. I'm very saddened about it. It's something that touches us all, I think.
