About me

Don’t be afraid to tell your story because your voice is important and your story is unique

Welcome to Spectrum mum a parenting and lifestyle blog.

I’m Catie. I am a 40 something Expat and teacher. I was born in Middlesbrough in the Northeast of England but since 2005 I have lived in Holland with my Dutch husband. 

I am mum to two amazing boys. My eldest son was diagnosed with autism when he was 5. 


I write honestly and passionately about the realities of parenting and campaign to raise understanding of Autism by sharing our experiences...
