I’m Ella, inimitable lover of all things purple. In the Purple family three out of five of us (including me)are on the autistic spectrum. So life can be a challenge but also a lot of fun!
I live in Bristol with my family and I love my life. I like board games, lego building, and curling up with a good book (or a comic). You can often find me snuggling up on my precious purple leather, corner sofa half watching TV, half catching up on Twitter.
Mr Purple, electrician extraordinaire (and Time Lord in his spare time). Hard working, and an absolutely brilliant Dad to the Purple children. He’s green fingered, pottering around the garden in any spare chance he has. He loves all things Tolkien and enjoys watching nature documentaries.
When we first met and I asked him what his ambition in life was, he told me he just wanted to be happy. He is definitely a man of simple pleasures.
Super Kid, born in 2007. He loves science, video games and dancing. Serious and playful in equal measure, and often found curled up with a book.
Robo Boy, born in 2008. He loves video games, drawing, animals, pizza and chocolate. Passionate, and very caring he’s the peacekeeper of the family. His hugs are legendary and given a chance he would never stop talking.
Wonder girl, born in 2011. She loves Netflix binges, fashion, and getting her own way! Funny, quirky and bright as a button.
Katsu the Purple cat. Rescued aged five, once a timid little thing, she now rules the roost, regularly demands back rubs, and is very vocal when she wants something.
Coco the Purple puppy. She loves bringing sticks into the house to shred all over the floor! Always has half an ear out for someone going into the kitchen in case THERE MIGHT BE FOOD.
