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.

Still in turmoil....

.... sorry that I haven't posted for so long but my life is still a whirlwind of turmoil!

DS2 leaves for Sydney for two years (at least) today and DD is moving out tomorrow.  So, all of a sudden it will be just TraderVic and I (and two or maybe three cats!).

Then I am off to the Gold Coast next week for three days for a work conference, so it will just be TraderVic and the cats!


Aaaagghh!

However, I have been stitching, I just have no time to do a proper post.  But I will soon.

I must, however, say a big thank you to all of my lovely bloggy friends who have been sending me kind messages of support at this time of turmoil (having a wedding, a funeral and all three children leave home/the state all in less than a month is hard!), I have really appreciated them.

Also, a big hello to my new followers from the Party, I promise you, I am usually a bit more fun than this!

Anyway, must give DS2 the biggest hug and kiss ever, then it is off to work whilst he jets off to start his new life!

hugs, Kaye

Sending hugs, It is sad when all the kids move on but there is never a right time for them to fly .It takes along time to get use to it , but in time you do get use to it. You have had a roller coaster time the last month, hope you can now settle back down , big hugs.

Oh Kaye! Sending you hugs. You've been through so much in such a short time frame. Stay strong & give yourself time with all the adjustments with your family. Thank goodness for stitching...helped me get thru hard times. More hugs for you - love Annette

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

These are some of the most traumatic changes in a person's life so it is not surprising that you feel discombobulated! Big word there LOL
With Skype and technology it's so much easier to keep in touch than it used to be.
Or maybe you just need another cat or two?

Bea said...

That's a lot of change in a short time - no wonder you feel at 6s and 7s. Give yourself time to adjust and I wish all of you the best as you set out on the next chapters of your lives. Hugs to you.

Kaye, I am sending you a strong hug !!!
In life it is so parents - children from leaving the house. Even our 4 kids are gone: - ((((

I lost two of my children last year to the UK: its hard, but we give them wings to fly. I hope things settle down soon

Margaret said...

Talk about changes all happening at once. Lots of hugs to you. Being busy with travel for work is probably a good thing.

Barb said...

You really have had tons to cope with. I am thinking of you!!

Brigitte said...

What a lot of change there is in your life right now. All the kids leaving is not the easiest to cope with. BUt after a while you will get used to it and you will realize that you have a lot more free time on your hands - for stitching for example? But it needs time. ((((Kaye))))

Carol said...

Your world really has changed drastically over the past few months, Kaye... I hope things calm down and you'll enjoy having more time for yourself very soon... Hugs to you!

Miamina said...

There's no rush, you take the time you need. There's been some major upheaval and emotional stress since the year started. Make sure you take care of yourself! Thinking of you xx
