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.

Merry Xmas to you all....

"I wish you a Merry Xmas, I wish you a Merry Xmas, I wish you a Merry Xmas ... and a Happy New Year..."

This is Xmas stitchery which I made many years ago:

Lots of people love to decorate their houses for the festive season.....














Last night we had our Xmas dinner with our best friends and we actually managed to get all six grown up children together as well! There was lots of laughter and chatter all night long:



This is cute little Rupert:






After dinner we adults went for a walk to check out the locally Xmas decorated homes:



 ... and to finish, here are a couple more of my Christmas ornaments and stitcheries from Christmases past:



And lastly here is my tree with my Santa Sack from Jeanette waiting for me to open - haven't I been patient? Plus I have another Xmas exchange waiting to open from Lisa





I am going to have fun tomorrow, aren't I?

Best wishes everyone,

hugs,


Update: It is nearly time for bed - Christmas Day tomorrow.  The food is all prepared and the menu set:

Entree: Antipasto, nice cheeses and a prawn dish.
Mains: Barbecued Pork Belly, Beef Wellington, Roast Chicken, Wild rice salad, Layered Garden salad,   Hasselback Potatoes,
