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.

A fabulous birthday outing....

Oh, I had such a lovely day today.  Two of my very dearest friends, Heather and Franca (we met when our lovely daughters became friends in Grade 3! About eighteen years ago now!) took me out to the Yarra Valley for a birthday outing.

We ate lunch at the absolutely gorgeous Tarrawarra Estate. There is a great restaurant (where the chef cooks with a lot of produce from the estate's kitchen garden), an art gallery and a cellar door, naturally.




Thank you, Heather and Franca, for a great day out!  Love you both, so much.

hugs,
