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.

A trip down Memory Lane....


Today, I had a trip down Memory Lane with my dear cousin, Robyn,  when we went to visit my Mum and Dad. Robyn brought along a memento from her childhood, "Little Women" which had been a present from my Mum to her 48 years ago! We all had a lovely time reminiscing.  





Here are my Mum and Dad....



... and with my cousin, Robyn...
 ... and with me.

At 93 my Dad can still grow the most amazing roses - the scent was so beautiful and look at that deep red colour!




A lovely morning indeed!

hugs,

How wonderful that Robin still has that book after all these years & that it brought back such nice memories for you! Your mum & dad look so happy in the photos, as do you & Robin : ) Your dad certainly does grow amazing roses! I've never seen any with the color so deep! So glad you had such a great time!
