Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am fairly recently divorced so new to online dating! I was
married for thirty years and have three wonderful grown up children
and a two year old grandson with whom I am besotted. I manage a
beautiful bookshop so consider myself very lucky as books are a
real passion of mine. I am generally a happy, cheerful person but
we've all been changed to some extent by life's traumas?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Aside from my job I lead a very busy life surrounded by family and
friends. I fill my spare time reading, gardening and entertaining
which I love. I enjoy going to live gigs and recently saw Lianne
las Havas and Electric Guest. My taste in music is very eclectic
though I'm not keen on jazz or country music.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love cooking and spend hours preparing meals for family and
friends. I am a kind, sympathetic,tolerant person and a good
listener. I'm also very bubbly and usually really enjoy myself when
out and about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Little, blonde, and bubbly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many books to mention and I have wide ranging taste, though
mostly I enjoy fiction and cookery books. I am of course surrounded
by books all day which is wonderful and can rarely resist the
temptation to purchase more! I love lots of different music,
especially Motown ,blues, funk and I still enjoy the bands I grew
up listening to. I don't get to the cinema as often as I would like
and again have wide ranging taste in film. I particularly love
going to the ballet.As already mentioned I love cooking and Indian
food is my favourite,but I enjoy most cuisines . I don't watch much
tv but I can't resist cookery and crime. The Killing, Damages,a
House of Cards and Breaking Bad have been my most recent
favourites. I have no interest in sport.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, my grandson, my new home, gardening, my cats.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My kids, my grandson, my friends, my garden, books, planning menus.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking fizz with my closest friend.
