Nice to Meet You

Hi there! I’m Kylie – a teacher and mum who loves playing and cooking with my kids. Octavia and Vicky is my own little creative outlet, and a fun space where I share activities for kids, real parenting stories, yummy things to cook and anything else that might take my fancy. You can read all my latest posts or choose from the menu above or the sidebar to the right.


I am blogging on Octavia and Vicky a little less these days because I’m teaching more – teaching is an all-consuming passion! I have the great privilege of teaching five year olds in their first year of school. There is still a lot to see and do around here, I hope you find something fun in the archives while I’m plodding my way to my next post. You’ll also find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so hop on over there if you’d like to see what I’ve been up to lately.

Who are Octavia and Vicky?

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. You can read the story here.
