The one thing I am passionate about...
I love to travel but not alone. I adore Scotland and at one time wanted to move there. I love gardening but at the moment dont have as much time as I would like. I live alone, my three cats are good company, and I love most animals. I love to read, especially Terry Pratchett, but will read most things. Love music, especially rock but not country and western. I am hoping to take up painting again. I dont watch much sport, but I can be relied on to understand the offside rule in football! I have two grown and married sons, and a granddaughter - I consider them my dynasty lol. I am slowly improving my health and fitness levels.
I typically spend my leisure time
Sometimes feet up in front of the tv, sometimes reading. I like to be active, walking, gardening, but would love to share these things with someone - I need the encouragement! I like loud music when I am doing things around the house. I would like to think I am a creative cook but living alone I cant always be bothered, so it would be nice to eat out occasionally on the spur of the moment. I am a Parish Councillor and do a lot of work in my community. I am a keen amateur photographer and I am looking to start an open university course in the near future; long term I am thinking about doing a degree in this subject.
The most influential person in my life has been
The ability to open up and talk about everything. Empathy. Someone who enjoys the countryside and walking is a must.
The first thing people notice about me
That I am a cuddly lady, but I am working hard to change that! Sometimes I come across as shy - but I get better as I get to know people.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Terry Pratchett - the only author I have come across that can make me laugh out loud. I am just as likely to be found looking at gardening books or researching Art Nouveau
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family and friends,
- my home and surrounding area
- The ability to travel - I love hillwalking in Scotland
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am starting my life again. I would love to meet someone with whom I can make new memories and have new experiences.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Intelligent, Passionate, Romantic
A little more about me
Im looking forward to meeting someone special. Whilst I am an independant woman who knows what she wants, I really would like to meet someone who I can share all life's experiences with and depend upon when life gives us lemons (and will help me turn them into lemonade!). I want to go forward and make some new and exciting memories, and find someone to love who will love me. I started smoking again recently (having quit 7 years ago) & I know this is a turn off for many people, but I intend to quit again - to date a non smoker would be a damn good incentive! Im also steadily losing weight so be prepared to date the incredible shrinking woman
