Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will!
Hello and welcome to my site. I am Kathryn Asher. A mother, wife, Sagittarian green tea addict with a love of all things healthy, happy and harmonious…I love ANYTHING romantic be it art, literature,music or home decor and I think that’s rubbed off on my little Libra 4 year old who has a strong developing interest in all things floral, antique and delicate with a huge love (as has her mummy) for Chopin and the French language. A budding poet in the making!
I have lived abroad for many years, where 8 of those were spent in Barcelona and Mallorca, Spain where my love of European languages, culture and art have grown into my biggest passions that I pursue as often as I can . I have studied Spanish for many years and now to degree level in the hope that I can one day turn my knowledge into something useful career wise, though for now, I teach a little, write a lot, update on health info, photograph lots and try my hardest to instill all this knowledge into my daughter (and plus 1 on the way) while she is at that ripe, spongy age… We’re all health fanatics as we understand life is too short to not take seriously (though the hubby and his veg intake could improve ) and we’re loving it too much to cut it short so, all health topics and findings can also be found right here.
So, my family have traveled a lot. My husband is an Irish Zimbabwean that upped roots and moved to London back in 2004 and since meeting and marrying in the Med, we’ve now settled to grow (until we take off again) in the inscrutable, haunting backwaters of my hometown of Yorkshire. The historical hometown of the Bronte’s, David Hockney, Ted Hughes and W.H Auden. A magical and inspirational place we now call home and where memories of Spain (especially in winter) make us nostalgic and question why we ever really chose to come back but, here we are, working, studying and learning and all the topics that interest us, be it health related, creative or what’s on our reading list can be found here on this site.
We love to sit at home where due to cold weather and slight domestic isolation due to kids etc, we have become intrigued with all sorts of design projects and ideas that make a house a home so anything I find interesting, I will feature it. I always love it when you browse across something and it makes you feel so warm and happy, inspired and grateful that you’ve encountered it. Maybe a recipe, a great book or a cool tip on how to overcome winter blues by using bits and pieces you’ll no doubt have kicking around the house, so if my site and my findings can make someone else feel like that, then I hope you enjoy!
I am currently working on my writing (I become obsessed and can disappear for days, pj’s unchanged etc) but I have a very obliging family and a ton of ideas floating around that are forced out of my head onto paper where one day I also hope that those little scribbles can entertain or inspire others. I mean, I’m from the home of grand, leading writers so it may be in my blood? I can only hope but it’s my love and I enjoy it with all of my heart. I’ll update you all with progress though please enjoy my site and I really hope you all find it useful and uplifting!
Lots of love from me and mine! x
