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's 92nd Birthday Party

Hello Lovely Bloggers,

Firstly,  I would like to say hello and welcome to all my recent followers. It is lovely to meet you and I hope that you enjoy my blog, my craft and the little snippets of  my life in Eaglemont, Melbourne, Australia.  I am fairly new to blogging but I am loving it.  The sense of community amongst crafty bloggers is just amazing and the opportunity to find out about the lives of others all around the world is so fascinating to me.  Everyone's works are so clever and gorgeous and everyone is so friendly.

Anyway, today, I wanted to share with you my Dad's 92nd birthday party.  Last Sunday, my dad turned 92!  Amazing, isn't it?  What is even more amazing is that my Dad was actually a POW for 3 and 1/2 years in Changi, Singapore during WWII.  He survived that and has lived a happy, long life since then.  He and my Mum (who will be 90 next February) still live independently in their own home.  Whilst life is pretty low-key for them now, they still love watching their "Inspector" DVDs and catch a taxi nearly every day to go to the shops to do their errands.

The party was held at my home and we all had a lovely time.  So, here are some pics of the happy event:

Firstly, here is the funny card which I gave him - he thought it was a hoot!

Dad with the cake
Well, that is my Dad's birthday.  I just want to say that I love my Dad very much, he has been a wonderful father and I am so proud to be his daughter.

That's all from me tonight, 

Bye for now,

love Kaye xoxox
