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.

My Dad...

For those of my bloggy friends who do not follow me on FB, Instagram or Twitter ....



I am hoping to resume normal (at least whatever passes for normal for me) transmission on my blog in a couple of weeks.

The funeral is on this coming Monday and there is soooo much to do!

Prayers for my Dad's soul, please.

Love to you all, 

hugs,
