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.

Blog Hiatus.....

Hi all, I know that (as seems to be the norm now), I am way behind on blog posts and that I am supposed to have done a Linky one for the Christmas Ornie Exchange blog - BUT....

... and this is a big BUT, my dear, sweet hero of a father is lying dying in hospital at the moment (he had been in hospital with the flu for a couple of weeks but now the end is close and it is actually his Alzheimer's which is the culprit, not the flu) and I cannot think of anything but being by his side in his final moments.

Please forgive me everyone - even though Dad has had a long life (his 98th birthday is two weeks way tomorrow) - it is so hard to let him go!

Love to you all and please pray for my Dad - I love him so.



hugs, Kaye
