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.

Beating off the post-work blues: Velvet....

.... as I have probably told you all before, I have been so busy since finishing work as my dear friends have been arranging lots of outings to keep me occupied - so much so that I do not know how I fitted full-time work in! lol!

So, I thought that I should fill you in on some of the wonderful things I have been doing over the past few weeks.  These posts will be under the "Beating off the post-work blues" title.

This post, I want to tell you about this wonderful 1970s burlesque show that we went to see last Friday evening at The Malthouse Theatre.  It was called Velvet.

Here are some gorgeous pics (from their website, as you were not allowed to take photos) to give you a better idea of what it was like than I can with words.













The incomparable Marcia Hines was the star of the show.




The singing was amazing and the acrobatics - wow! wow! wow!

Here is a recent review of the show and I managed to find a trailer so you can see a bit of its magic.



We had a great time, so if you get a chance to see it, I can highly recommend it.

hugs,

Pampering yourself is a great way to get over any kind of blues. It does you good.
