about azahar (that’s me!)
When I started casa az on May 1st 2006, it was my first ever blog and it was created as a general interest “blogazine” type of place, though it’s mostly become an online scrapbook of daily stuff going on in my life. Comments are very welcome, so even if you don’t know me (yet) please don’t hesitate to say hello – it would be great to hear from you.
Born in Canada by mistake, I’ve been happily living in Seville, Spain since September 1993. Previously I lived in Winnipeg, Toronto, Bristol and Salamanca (in that order).
My two gorgeous boys, Loki & Azar, are shown below, with newcomer Luna in the middle
and my beautiful Sunny on the right, who is still very much missed…
In May 2008 I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer (metastasis to liver and peritoneum). It’s been quite the roller coaster ride since then but I am still hoping to beat the odds. These are my cancer-related posts.
And in case you are wondering about the ‘orange theme’ scattered about the place, that’s because azahar is Spanish for orange blossom and is my favourite flower (pronounced ah-thaar – diphthong and stress on the last syllable).
If you’d like to see what else I get up to then have a look at the other blogs and websites listed under “azahar online” in the sidebar.
