The one thing I am passionate about...
Looking at what surrounds me, finding out about the area I live in. I love history, nature and how these mix. Walking is a time to think, to ruminate on the day I have had, or just wonder at times gone by. If I see something of interest I find it hard to walk on by. My dog is my best friend and he comes too most of the time. I like to mix up where I go and head in new directions. I love to read all sorts of things, my range is large. My family is also important to me, all my brothers and sisters take an interest in how we all fair. If I could afford to I would be an unfettered adventurer visiting foreign lands, I make do with here!
I typically spend my leisure time
Leisure when it comes is a visit to family, the reading of a book, dog walking, general household maintenance, if I am lucky a holiday, if not a day trip somewhere. Walking is great, it keeps me fit and you see the changing seasons on a daily basis. No two days are ever the same. I sometimes watch TV and will often record something on Discovery or some such to watch at my leisure. I try not to sit at home twiddling my thumbs, that is just plain boring! I sometimes go online, to look things up, family history, facts etc. I try not to become too absorbed and I certainly don't play computer games! If a paper wafts my way I will read it.
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
My voice has been described as sexy
The last book I read and enjoyed
Lustrum by Robert Harris, a book about Cicero , Ceasar and life in Rome c 60 BC. I liked the way Harris brought Rome to life and of course had to translate Cicero into his own text! Not an easy achievement, especially knowing that Cicero was the Stephen Fry of his day.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being blessed with a good childhood, with loving brothers & sisters
- Being able to walk out and enjoy the countryside and take in natures beauty
- Having the unconditional love of my dog
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
A good sense of humour
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
Hmmmmmmm. How random can I be? I am not a fan of zoo's or safari parks. I have been know to put together flat pack furniture without having bits left over. Gardening is mowing the lawn. I crave a trip on The Ghan. My comfort food is Angel Delight. I seem to get on with people at all levels. Although I am dark haired my blonde sister says I definately have blonde moments. My feet are a cute size 3 1/2. I suppose I am actually rather deep of character, but hide it with my veneer of humour.
