My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have lived more than half my life in the the UK and am in many ways very British, but the American part is deep in my soul. The Brit part is disinclined to sing her own praises and the American part thinks it should hardly be necessary, so I am finding this rather difficult. If it didn't imply a tidiness I can't claim I would offer a series of bullet points. Here instead are a few sentences that seem like a good start:

I live on a narrowboat on the Oxford Canal without mains electricity, gas, water, sewage or telephone; it sounds more ascetic than it is, and though I enjoy the rigours of canal life, my boat is very comfortable. In the summer I am outside a lot. In the winter I heave the coal, feed the birds, slide in the mud and retreat to a book, Radio 4, or the wonders of the internet.

Before the boat my home was a rural Oxfordshire village where I raised my children.

I have run the London Marathon, which came as a great surprise to everyone who knew me, and, more than 10 years later, it still seems improbable.

My mother tells me that I ought to mention that my profile picture is recent (taken in June this year) and I haven't lied about my age. Since one should always do as one's mother says, consider it mentioned.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sometimes I think there is nothing I could do without (and I don't count that a virtue), but what I care most about is family, what most diverts me is BBC Radio 4 and watching the birds (and occasional rat) at my feeders, what most changed my life was the internet, and what I never leave home without is my cell phone and my Kindle. Phew, that's six.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am either down the pub with improbable friends from my old mooring or cosy by the fire on the boat with a book.
