  • Jack fell down and broke his crown 5 days ago For the first time in three days I’m sitting calmly. The sea is a deep green outside my window and the wisteria has bloomed into sprays of white and lavender. The sun is behind a cloud, but it’s there.  I can feel it. And my heart has quietened now from... You're reading Jack fell down and...
  • This is life 1 week ago So today I spent all day in a facility. Filling forms, fielding accusations, fighting for calm. Today, I left my love behind. In good hands truly. At least, I pray so.

  • Inspiration is everywhere 2 weeks ago It’s been a tough week, changing seasons it’s sometimes like that. Hubby’s been ill and I’ve been struggling under the strain. Add in a few work problems and exhaustion and I’ve crumbled a little. It’s OK. I’m allowed. Things don’t always have to be perfect. That’s why we have...

Vix has a wonderful sense of humor and I frequently squirt coffee on my keyboard when reading her posts. As a Kiwi adrift in the rain soaked United Kingdom I do feel her pain and love reading about how she's trying to adapt to England's soggy climes.

I love Vicki's take on things. She shares her experiences of life abroad in such a way that her readers are pulled in by her wit and personable style, as if we were tucked into her bag and taken along with her on her journey.

Vicki's blog is often the first thing I read when I wake up in the morning. Her humourous and insightful writing has made me cry, be uplifted, be inspired to do more in this world....and frequently made me laugh!

A Kiwi that claims Vegemite?! Us Aussies might as well take the Finn brothers and Pavlova... Setting that aside great blog with a wide mix of topics and discussions. I enjoy catching up on Vegemite Vix when I do my blog reading.
