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.

No stitching tonight as I have been....

... out spontaneously for a drink or two at a cool bar, Bar Nancy with my GF from work.  We hardly ever do this but we both looked at each other at the end of the day and said "Hey, let's go for a drink".  As I knew that TraderVic only had to heat leftovers for dinner tonight (I made a great cottage pie last night) I didn't have to feel guilty at getting home at ...wait for it... 8pm!

Bar Nancy
So, as I have had a couple of glasses of a very nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and I have all of that frogging to do on Cinderella, I am staying away from the stitching tonight.  Just doing some blog stalking and watching some TV - Madmen is on tonight - yay!

But I do want to show you some pics of my beautiful DD and her brand new car - a Mazda 2.  I am so proud of her - she has worked really hard at her part-time job to save up the money to buy it herself.  Not bad for a nearly 21 year old to be able to afford to buy her own brand new car!



Doesn't she look so happy?

hugs,

Congrats to your daughter buying her first new car! I can remember how thrilling it was when I was young & got my first car although I actually never bought one myself. I married John & got joint ownership of his ... lol! I'm glad you got to go out & have a couple drinks with your friend. It's nice to "get away" & do something different sometimes.

That's awesome Kaye. I'm forty and I've NEVER had a new car!!! Good for her! Glad you had a nice time with your co worker. If I liked wine, I would say it sounds like a lovely time, lol. You should get your frogging done quickly, so you're not spending time dreading it. JMO!!

Good idea to pass on stitching if you're under the influence! LOL. My 23-year-old daughter just bought herself a new car, too! Congratulations to your daughter!

Sounds like a perfect end to a working day :-) Good idea to stay away from the stitching though!

Well done to your daughter for saving for her own car, she will appreciate and love it all the more because she bought it with her own hard earned money :-)
