The one thing I am passionate about...
Living life to the full . Taking care of myself, my family and friends, doing what I can in my local community . Continuing to learn, explore and have fun. Making a difference.Looking for that special person to share with.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy gardening especially planning the design and planting.Singing with a small choir is fun one evening week and I like theatre, concerts and folk music.I like travelling and exploring new places, have recently started gliding, am a member of a bowling club and enjoy visiting historic houses.
The most influential person in my life has been
A really good friend . Ideally a family man who can communicate, loves people and socialising but also enjoys a walk in the country with the wind in his hair. Someone with energy who likes learning something new, enjoys music, theatre, good food, travel and keeping fit. Someone independent, responsible, fun, caring and able to give and accept support. A man who likes my independence but also likes a cuddle. If he likes to dance that would be a bonus.
The first thing people notice about me
Maybe my smile. I dont really know.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Storyteller by Jodi PicoultI like her books because she picks controversial topics that make me think about the different view points.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- a loving family and friends who have always been there for me.
- my health
- living in a beautiful place
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Family and friends know me pretty well. A new friend can take time to find out how good a friend I can be.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Good listener, Optimistic, Passionate
A little more about me
I am happy with my life and lucky to be able to do lots of things I have been looking forward to. I have enjoyed gliding, long distance walking and have some traveling planned. An ambition has been to learn to play an instrument so I plan to try saxophone, clarinet, cello and drums before choosing the one I have most chance of becoming proficient at.Life is too short to waste and I enjoy it most when I can share with a best friend.
