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.

Packing for Queensland

Hi everyone,

I am off to Queensland tomorrow for the week for work (as I mentioned in an earlier post) and whilst it will be really busy presenting at lots of sessions about the History book I have published it will be warmer than Melbourne!  23 degrees as opposed to 13!  Anyway, I just had to post these photos of Furio "helping" me pack!

Selecting clothes from the wardrobe
Packing the suitcase.
Can I come too?  I only take up as much room as a pair of your shoes!

As you can imagine, I will miss Furio whilst I am away!  Still I can always look at these pictures on my blog.

I plan to get lots of reading done on the plane and I am taking Holbein's Henry with me to work on before I sleep. Anyway, off to the footy now with DH to see the Mighty Tigers play Geelong.

Have a great week everyone, bye for now, Kaye xoxox

Hi Kaye! Love Furio's style!! Felix loves to help us pack too... Oscar just hides as he knows suitcases equal cat cages!!
Years ago I had a Great Dane that used to help me pack when I went away by putting her favourite toy in the suitcase.. obviously this was so that mum wouldn't be lonely while away from home!!!

Pets do give us so much love don't they! I wouldn't be without mine..


Kaisievic said...


Oh, that is so cute - giving you his toy!
