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.

Belated Easter post

Welcome to all my new followers, it is lovely to have you visit and I hope that we become great blogging mates.  Enjoy!

Well, we came home from America on Easter Saturday morning after having missed DS1's 24th birthday entirely by having crossed back over the international date line.  So, on Easter Sunday evening, despite our jet lag, TraderVic and I put on a birthday dinner for DS1 and for our dear friends, the Friends (yes, that is their surname, they are not Quakers).  Here are some pics of what I baked for my son:

Artichoke and spinach dip - which I think I may have used too much ricotta cheese in it - it should have been less thick, but it was still yummy.

Easter layer cake:
 Some Easter daisies which my DF gave me, they come from her garden, lovely, aren't they?  They are really long lasting as they still look really nice in the vase all of these days later.

Well, off to work now, have a good day everyone.

Hugs, Kaye

(Who really wishes that she could stay home and stitch on Cinderella instead!)
