I am Danielle and I am an ex-English teacher living on the Gloucestershire/Worcestershire border. I have two children, a boy, aged five, who is on the autistic spectrum, and a daughter, aged three.
I blog about general parenting topics, as well as our experience with autism and issues surrounding teaching. I love writing about all kinds of issues and in different genres and I am in the middle of writing a novel for young adults.
I have been with my husband, Matt, who I met during teacher training, for fourteen years, and we have been married for nine years.
Several of my posts have been very well received. I have been featured by The Times Educational Supplement, Autism Awareness.com, Tots100, BritMums, The National Autistic Society, The Mighty, and I have been Mumsnet Blog of the Day on several occasions. My most popular post, ‘Teaching: a family unfriendly profession’ was viewed nearly 100,000 times in the first week of publication and shared on Facebook over 10,000 times. I was also recently a winner in Good to Know’s BISS competition, in which my post, ‘Not Less’ was selected to be a winner by The Unmumsy Mum.
I have been nominated for several blogging awards, including awards in the BAPs, BritMums BiBs, and last year I won Blogosphere Parenting blogger of the year 2017.
