Welcome to Embers on the hearth - Embers on the hearth

Embers on the hearth is my digital garden. That means this is all a massive work-in-progress. Some pages will be small seeds, some will be neat beautiful plants, and some will be unhinged jungles.

I’m all about embracing a slower lifestyle that celebrates and keeps old skills alive, in a realistic and inclusive way. I am keen in long-life learning and I love pushing my creativity.

A big part of my focus is on food, because that’s an activity that we all take part in, several times per day. But I am interested in all sorts of things, I’m a knowledge magpie, so expect a certain degree of randomness.

Feel free to explore the website. New sections will probably be added in the future.

I am not a professional in any of these areas, just very interested in them.

About me

As of the end of 2022, I am 37 and I live in Devon, England. I live in a medium-sized sea city, and I live in the actual city, not the suburbs. I share my life with my husband and two kids (currently 9 and 11).

I am a freelance social media manager and content creator and work with small companies and individuals (mostly artists and owner-run businesses) supporting their social media presence and creating content for their blogs.

I was born in Argentina, and have lived in Spain, and the UK, with some short stints in Chile and Norway.

I am an LGBTQIA+ ally, and against all forms of xenophobia, racism, sexism, ageism, and ableism. I 100% have no time for bigots, and you can feel free to be offended and close the window.
