The one thing I am passionate about...
There is nothing more simple and better to do than go walking in the country [come rain or shine] and I love to get out and about, I hate to feel couped up indoors! I love animals and have several pets at home; I do like to spend time with them and/or visit places such as the zoo. I watch a lot of films, either at the flicks or at home - lots of different subjects interest me but I tend to stay away from horror, I like my sleep at night. I read books when I have time, like films, I read lots of different genres, whatever takes my fancy at the time I guess.
I typically spend my leisure time
Ideally, I'll jump in the car and go up the coast for the day! Walking, reading, time with my pets, coffee and a chat with friends, visit to the cinema, watching films at home, drawing, drinks with friends, gardening, cooking and baking..... I'm a hollistic therapist in my spare time but I mainly treat friends and family, you could call it my plan B, should I ever crash and burn as a PA!
The most influential person in my life has been
A partner who is a friend as well as a lover, I think it's important to work together to achieve things in a relationship. I love people with a sense of humour - at the end of the day if you can laugh about stuff with each other, even when things are tough, you know then that you've got strong foundations. Honesty and emotional integrity are a must! I like sensitivity in people too as it goes someway to demonstrate an ability to understand others, empathise and see further than beyond your own nose. My ideal is to meet somebody who's at the same point in life as me....ready to commit to a relationship but who wants to have loads of fun too!

A little more about me
I'm adaptable and spontaneous and am happy to try anything once - if you don't try something new you'll never know if it's something you'll go on to enjoy a lot more of. I never narrow down opportunities. I love nothing more than getting up at a weekend and thinking 'where and what shall I do today' I like to make the most of free time, grabbing the moment not planning it! I'm quite an active person and don't like to slob about watching tv all weekend even on rainy days theres always an art gallery or musuem to visit. I'd really like to meet somebody who likes plain speaking and is equally honest in return, life is too short for time wasters.
