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.

Saturday = Fabday

So, despite a rocky start to the day with maybe breaking the little toe on my right foot  yesterday (scroll down once you have clicked to find out what happened), Saturday ended up being a fabulous day.

This is so, for two reasons.....

Reason One - The Humble Dumpling

A group of friends and I attended a Chinese dumpling making class yesterday. Oh, it was so much fun!  Very hands on and then we were able to sit around a big table together and eat the fruits of our labours. Wonderful!





It was run by the wonderful Angie Chong, who is the daughter of renowned Chinese chef and cookbook author, Elizabeth Chong.


If you live in Melbourne, I can highly recommend this as a fun activity to do with your friends.




(Please note: this clip is the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, we, of course, saw the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at Hamer Hall rather than the Opera House)

It was a fabulous show, with brilliant singing and wonderful musicians playing.  Something else that I can highly recommend.

Anyway, off to hobble around the house doing some stuff.  Watch out for my Gifted Gorgeousness post, coming up soon.

Have a great Sunday, everyone, 

hugs,

The dumplings look delicious, I'm glad it was a great class. And that clip sounds like it was a great evening. Did you start a new footwear fashion trend?

Brigitte said...

Oh great, Chinese dumplings. I have had them once and they were delicious. And once I saw a TV program about them and I was sitting there on my couch and my mouth was watering, lol.

Very tempting dumplings..I'd love to take a class like that.
Hope your toe is on the mend and not too bruised.

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

That looks like a fun day if you enjoy cooking. I'd just do the tasting!
Hope the toe is improving.
