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.

Lest we forget!

Thank you for your service to our country, Dad.

I love you so much and I am so proud of you.  You are an inspiration.  

You know, Dad told me recently that, despite his few troubles when he was younger (three and a half years in the infamous Changi POW camp) and losing my mother at the end of 2013, he was a very lucky and contented man!  An inspiration indeed.

Then:


Now!  97 years young.



hugs, Kaye

Two great pictures of your dad I can't even imagine what it must have been like for him, in that prison camp. Gives me chills. Looking great for 97
