Hey there, I’m Kath!


Here at the Life Spotters, it is our goal to help you slow down, find your path and walk it with wonder.


Do you long to create a lifestyle that screams ‘This is me!’, to wear your weirdness like a badge of honour and deep dive into the experience of life rather than watching it pass you by?


Because you know there is more to life than deadlines and dead-ends.


Slow down and drink in the deliciousness that is life, create a world in which you are thriving, not just surviving!


We believe that slow is good, less is more and quirky is your super-power! You have everything you need to start living a life of intention and beauty, and you can begin today!


Let’s go!

Still with me?  Good.

If you want to get to know me a little more personally, I live in a static caravan in Devon, with my husband Simon, 12-year-old son (Thing 1) and 9-year-old daughter (Thing 2).


As a family we love nothing more than getting out and about in our campervan, learning, exploring and frankly, making a bit of a mess. Simon, our resident minimalist and neat freak, despairs of his wild, unruly travelling companions.


We started home educating the kids just over a year ago, and haven’t looked back. Life is lovely 🙂


We are currently planning to buy a narrowboat and build our first floating home.


The Hubby

Man sat on back step of van
Simon likes… “Carrying heavy photographic equipment along precarious cliff edges at dusk, film noir, and bulk buying wine, art books and spices. He has an affinity for the element of wood, the philosophy of the Stoics and the conjuring of abundance through the medium of crystals. He likes his coffee and his women strong and hot, and his soundtrack funky.”


Our Son

Thing 1 likes… “Reading, music with rocks in, building things, happiness, eating, reading, eating, then eating some more, being in water and science experiments.”


Our Daughter

Thing 2 likes… “Exploring, clambering over rocks and things, elephants, playing games, swinging off stuff, sunsets, and dancing in the rain. When I grow up I’m going to be a trapeze artist.”

As for me:

I love the sound of the wind in the trees, being on the beach, good food, good company, wild swimming, tiny houses and the smell of cinnamon. I love cowboy boots, hats and scarves, and all shades of green and blue. Also, stationary is more exciting to me than is perhaps natural.

Despite being deeply introverted, I love connecting. I am a natural-born collector but believe in living with less. I love to travel, but get terrible motion sickness in pretty much any mode of transport. I embrace all that is contrary and liminal.

But enough about me, what about you?

    I’m a 54 yr old grandma and I’m wanting to make positive changes in my life. I’m 3x married (3rd times the charm!) and between us, we have ALOT of grand-blessings.

    Here’s the thing, I suffer from depression and anxiety. I’m overweight and currently in a debt management program (which leaves me with very little money to play with).

    I want to get out more, do more with the blessings, and enjoy time with my wonderful husband. I’m just having trouble getting started Bc I don’t know where exactly to start.

    So I’m hoping your website will get me taking that first step!! Blessings to you and yours

      Thank you so much for sharing your story Kelly, it’s one that I think a lot of people can identify with. I actually also suffer with depression and anxiety, and am still chipping away at my own debt mountain, so find your situation particularly relatable. I found with my own mental health issues it was getting going that was the hardest part – finding the enthusiasm to want to live my life fully in the first place – congratulations to you on making the choice to bring about positive changes in your life! You say you don’t know where to start, but I assure you, you already have 😉 Good luck with your journey, please let me know if you have any particular questions and I’ll do my best to assist! Best Wishes, Kath x
