"Rainbows are too beautiful," said Anthony. "I just can't look at them."  This summarises so much about our lives.  I'm Ann and on this blog I share how our autistic and neurotypical family interacts and interprets the world in our own wonderful way. 

Our background

I started my career in PR and marketing for charities and associations, then turned my hand to teaching my profession shortly after having our first child.  Since then I've morphed into a full time mum, work part time in education, am charity trustee and writer at Rainbows are too beautiful. Here I note positive thoughts, ideas and experiences of life with my autistic and neurotypical kids and our greater family.  Our children also have diagnoses of ADHD, hypermobility, SPD, dyspraxia, anxiety and sleep issues.  We also enjoy gaming and I cover this under my Mumma Games banner.

I live in London / South East England with my hubby and kids Anthony (11), David (8) and Jane (6). We also have family in Scotland and the USA.
