My name is Kylie and Octavia and Vicky is a space I have designed to share my love of writing. Through my writing I hope to share my passion for parenting, teaching, technology, food and enjoying the small things in life.

I am wife to Paul and mum to Charlotte, two years old. I juggle my time between being a mum and working part-time as a junior primary teacher, then trying to fit the rest of life in around those two BIG jobs. I also love to cook and eat, read and write, shop and surf (the net!). I live in Adelaide, Australia.

I named my blog Octavia and Vicky after a story I wrote when I was five years old, about a spider named Octavia and her young friend, Vicky. There is still a tattered copy around the place somewhere...
