  • Share The Love Potluck 4 weeks ago *Sponsored I’ve been a huge fan of NZ cook Annabel Langbein, for many years. In fact, I first met her at her Cooking School back in the old Strand building in 1990s Auckland, and later when I moved to the UK I drove 20 kms just to buy her cookbook from Waitrose. Yup, I’m a...
  • Wandering star 1 month ago I must have been born under a wandering star, for I’ve spent my entire life moving. From country to country, from city to city, from suburb to suburb. The thing I’ve learnt along the way is that any move, no matter how big or small compared to other moves, is a big change. Each move...

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.

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.
