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.

So far behind....

....  that it is ridiculous....

Oh my goodness, my life is so very, very busy at the moment.  As I may have mentioned before I have a number of very big presentation to give to the Senior Management team to try to get some new projects over the line at work plus I have been a bit of a social butterfly, too!

And now, I have realised that I only have two months before I go away on our big trip (Taiwain/Borneo/Singapore) and I have so much to do!   aaaghhhh!

Honestly, I need longer days!  I work full time, I try to visit my Dad regularly and catch up with friends and family, run the house, manage five  six blogs, cross stitch, slave to two kitty cats and try to keep up a fitness regime - double aaaggghh!

Anyway, enough whinging, Kaye!  Deep Breath, you can do it!

Here is a rather belated Friday Night with Friends and Friday Frolics update....


Anyway, Friday before last , I pulled out Cherry Tea,  which I had last stitched on way back in December, 2013!


Now, I didn't get a super amount done but I did progress....


I just hope that it is not another nearly two years before I pick this piece up again! lol!

So, tune back in later for my TUSAL post and I have so much to tell you about my weekend away!

hugs, Kaye

Dear Kaye,

Last a couple months; I almost have the same schedule like yours (expect fitness regime and blogging ) so you have to proud of yourself for being able to do time management properly♥

Wish you all successes in your big trip!

Have a great week too!

Justine said...

You are a busy woman! Your stitching is beautiful. Good luck with everything you have going on.

Thoeria said...

The cherry tree is lovely, Kaye!
Why is it that before any kind of time away one has to scurry around to finish things so you can go off and enjoy a well deserved break.....and when you're back from the break you feel you have to work like crazy to catch up with what you missed!!
Deep breathes! :)

Heather said...

A little progress is better than none! Love it I may have to see if I can find that chart or a similar ones. The cherries are beautiful. I too like your blog decorations for Halloween. You can do it one day at a time.

You definitely lead a very busy life, Kaye. It's just admirable how you can cope with everything. But your vacation is in sight to relax somewhat.
A wonderful piece that you pulled out and you mae some nice progress on it.

Stitching Noni said...

Cherry Tree is beautiful.... hope you get some time on this one again soon!
I know exactly how you feel.... I am sure that someone is stealing hours from the day as I never have enough to do anything either at work or at home.... I need something to slow down time some days just so that I can get things done!
Keep breathing.... keep on keeping on!!! :o)
Hugs xx
