What defines me? My family, art and creativity, passion for books and cooking. I'm a mother of two lovely boys (12 and 4 years old). My older son has autism, and life is a constant challenge. But having a child with a disability has taught us to appreciate simple pleasures of life, like catching raindrops with your tongue or having whole five minutes uninterrupted to have your cup of tea, enjoying the world where the smell and taste and all things sensory become more acute. Cooking for me is a labour of love and a creative process as well as a form of an escapism.
