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.

What a weekend! .... Part One

Well, this past weekend was megabusy but superfun!  It all started on Friday, which was TraderVic and my 33rd Wedding Anniversary!

Before I go any further, I should say that TraderVic is the best husband, father and friend that anyone could have and that I feel so lucky and blessed to be sharing my life with him.  I love him to bits!

Unfortunately, Friday was a workday so the celebrations could not begin until Friday night. But when I arrived home, TraderVic surprised me with this wonderful gift:


A beautiful teapot and two matching cups and saucers.  I had admired them in T2 several weeks back and TraderVic remembered and went back to buy them for me.  Aren't they just so gorgeous?

Then, we went out to dinner with our dear friends, Linda and Terry to the most fabulous Thai restaurant in Alphington: Paladarr Thai.

The decor was so interesting and the food was absolutely marvellous:












... and I will leave you with a photo of Linda and I trying to take a clever selfie!




Next post I will fill you in on the other exciting things I did on the rest of the weekend and I might even dig up a photo of TraderVic and I on our wedding day for you!

love to you all and lots of hugs,
