About Me

Sometimes people have Autism
and that is okay.
Sometimes people are different
and that is okay.

I am Marita and this is my blog.

I am a mother of two amazing girls, Annie and Heidi.

I am a wife to wonderful man called Ralph.

I am myself, diagnosed with Crohns disease in my late teens, interested in cross stitch, sci-fi and fantasy.

This blog started out as a cross stitch blog but has evolved over the years to cover most aspects of life in my home.

In May 2007 my youngest daughter was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism.

Much has changed since that day, Heidi has shown us a different way to look at the world and that started to be reflected in my blog.

A diagnosis of Autism, the label given to my child has not been the end of the world, we have used it to open doors to places we otherwise would not have known existed. Yes some days it is hard but it is also amazing.

In July 2009 my older daughter Annie was diagnosed with Aspergers and tested as Gifted which I’m sure will lead us on an equally interesting journey.

Please stop by and leave a comment, I love hearing from you.

Thank you to Sharon from Riot Photography for the brilliant family photo.
