Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

About

This is me….hello.

*Waves*, welcome to my blog. If you’ve come to this via Twitter then you’ll already know a bit about me and thank you for looking further.

If not, then I’m a proud mum of three – two sons aged 18 (aargh, where has the time gone?); 10 (C and T respectively) and a daughter aged 8 (D). She has autism, delayed motor skills and enhanced sensory skills. This can make for a “challenging” time but we wouldn’t be without her.

Our middle son (T) has been diagnosed at the higher functioning end of spectrum too, with high functioning autism – he’s a very intelligent, mature child, who you couldn’t possibly tell was also in the spectrum.

Very passionate about raising awareness of autism – the “invisible disability” – hoping that I’m helping via my blog posts and pictures that prove you can’t always tell at first glance if there is a disability – see my post “The Camera DOES lie”. I also have a couple of others I’d love for people to take a look at:
“A is for…” and “I want to be…” and “Penny for your thoughts” – all on here, just put the title into the search bar.

Promo over….

And I’m a wife to one – Hubbie – works very hard to support us and very protective of his family. He’s also a football coach at Saints Hawks (who our middle son plays for).

Two cat sisters – Itsey and Bitsey – and 3 guinea pigs – George, Bungle and Zipp.

Used to be a PA, tried childminding whilst a SAHM mum and I’m a learner driver too.

Life is busy but I prefer it that way, less time to stop and think!

I’ve always wanted to write a novel and I’m always committed to raising awareness. I would love to send you a sneak peek at the first seven chapters, or you can visit my twitter page for details on getting the free sneak peek. Would love to share the sneak peek with your readers. Thanks!
