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.

Sick as a dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



That is me!


You might remember that it was only on the 20th May that I was last MIA due to the freelance work I was doing.

Well, it was a double whammy this time.  I picked up some more freelance work (which is great as it helps pay for my stash - lol!) but then I have come down with some sort of super bad head cold virus which has moved down to my chest and has triggered my asthma.

So, I have been trying to complete this intensive work on the computer whilst I have a stuffy head, a runny nose, a sore throat, ear ache, a racking cough and am unable to breathe - to put it mildly, I am miserable!



I really need to get a better hang of this freelance work so it is a better work/life balance, I think - it is not so easy as it seems to say "oh, I work freelance at home" - there is no sick leave and the deadlines are always looming!

So, unfortunately, as usual, it is blogging that seems to suffer - I am midway through writing my Gifted Gorgeousness  and Smalls SAL post - and hopefully will get it up in the next hour and a half (when the GG link expires).

However, I have managed to get some more stitching done, which I will post about soon, I promise.

Okay, breakfast for me and then I will write that GG/Smalls SAL post.

                                                         hugs, 

P.S. Plus I forgot to tell you that our Indian Summer finished with a bang and within the space of a few days we have gone from lovely, mild, warm days to what seems like the middle of a very cold winter - One day I was wearing t-shirts, the next I have my thick, winter woolies on!  Go figure!  Plus, the other day, they were redoing the gas mains in the street and they turned off our gas - so you guessed it, no heating!  Brrr!

This really doesn't sound good, Kaye. I hate these head colds too. I hope the germ-killing means will do their work and you will soon feel a lot better.
