About me

My name is Katherine. For the sake of my children’s privacy I will be using aliases then talking about them on this site, until such a time as they can consent to the being linked to what I write (though I intend it to remain positive and not include things they would resent the world knowing).

My husband, Adam, and I have been married 10 years (got married in 2008). That’s a long story for another day. Our eldest child, David*, is 8 (born 2010) and our youngest, *Sarah, is 5 (born 2013).

I completed a Bachelor of Science (Physics) 10 or so years ago, majoring in Astronomy and Astrophysics.  I am a Christian with a love for learning the context that the Bible was written in, lived in Israel and started to learn Hebrew.  I love music.  I never had lessons as a child, so I sing, and I have been trying to teach myself guitar, bass and saxophone.  I also love jigsaws, craft and I taught myself to crochet to make StarWars amigurumi. I also completed a Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary) to be a high school Physics teacher, which I did for one year.

I am beginning this blog to document my journey discovering that my son and I both have Aspergers, and subsequent official diagnosis of ASD (according to the DSM-5).
