Hi, I am Vicky…

…Author of The Growing Mum blog. Thank you for stopping by. I am married to a geek(ish), mummy to a beautiful little boy (with another on the way), follower of Christ and opinionated so and so. This blog was started after my little boy turned one to share my parenting journey, from the highs (heart-melting smiles) to the lows (sleep deprivation for 12 months and counting). There will be the odd reviews, crafty projects and homely graphics to mix things up.


My 8 to 4 job is in IT, working as a Quality Assurance Analyst. It has its tedious moments (writing reports) but I love getting paid to critique other people’s work. After a rewarding day of pointing out issues with software & websites, putting the little one to bed, I would love to settle down with a crochet project and actually finish that baby blanket. However, I never seem to have enough time in the day. I have a few other bubbling passions that I would love to get stuck into. So as well as sharing my life with you, I will attempt to get these Projects going and document the progress here. A sort of accountability if you like. If I inspire a few of you along the way to get organise or start something new then that would be brilliant too. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have imagined myself running several social media channels, let alone for an organisation but I got stuck in and now I can even turn my hand at graphics design. 


Well, there you have it. If you would like to know more about me, collaborate, send me things to review then feel free to drop me a line or just say “hello”. I would love to hear from you and I would do my best to reply promptly.
