I started blogging many years ago to update family and friends abroad.
And I did. In english.
Gradually, however, the emphasis changed from an accumulation of accounts if the children's life-events into a way to vent about the difficulties I encountered in my life, into a blog aimed at creating awareness about autism and autism spectrum disorders.
Ofcourse the struggle to get my autistic son to school is told.

Going with the flow of my life I developed insights in people and events, in parenting, politics and in many other areas. Writing it down meant I was able to look into a mirror.
Ofcourse I know each of us is an individual being, but we share also lots of things, so I'm OK with other people reading along.

Once in a while idealism flared up.
In my opinion no one is better than someone else.
We're all world citizens and we should behave accordingly: with respect for others, instead of some people telling others how much better they are and how much better their country is.
Especially in the light of the financial crisis there is no place for people looking down on others.
We all should work together to tackle hunger, poverty, lack of healthcare, pollution and all those other issues that bring about inequality.

In the good times I was able to save for smallpipes, but the chance to save enough for the bagpipes for both my daughters is almost impossible.

Blogging has become a lifeline to the world, as I'm not often able to leave the house and I'm not able to keep a normal social life. Living with 4 autistic children and their father means balancing on the thin rim between pretending to be a normal family and being a family where I'm far more a psychologist/mother/life-artist than a relaxed mom who has no worries in the world.
So I love memes.
I'm living a real life soap and I haven't found the script writer.
Be sure, when I find him I'll change the script and let you know.

Thanks for the award!!

Thanks to all others who granted me an award too.
Due to all the strings attached, like choosing 10 other people, etc etc. I haven't posted them yet.
Each day I have to make a choice what to do because I need to press about 3 days in 1.
Thanks a lot!
