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.

Spring has come and a late TUSAL update

Hello lovely bloggers,

Spring has sprung in Eaglemont, I was able to pick some gorgeous roses from my garden, today.

Today is that last day of my lovely four day weekend - where I have done as little as possible - just rested and pottered around.  It is a public holiday today - Melbourne Cup Day.

The Melbourne Cup has been raced since 1860 and here in Melbourne, we get a public holiday, whilst at 3pm when the race is run most people stop to watch it on TV. It is known as 'the race which stops a nation'

I finally remembered my TUSAL jar, so here it is:

(the little boy on the merry-go-round horse in my photo is my DES at about age 2 - he is now 23!)
 And, of course, I have had to include a kitten photo, here is Furio trying to put up his tent!
 I also found some of my baking mojo - yesterday I made an apple-raspberry pie - it was pronounced very yummy by the family!

Lastly, I would like to remind you that if you would like to get an extra entry in my giveaway, please say so when and if you comment on this post.

Have a great week, everyone,

Hugs, Kaye xoxox
