Witty, great fun, well read, laid back personality, up for good
conversation, and someone who can share my passions for a heady mix
of music, cinema, art galleries, the countryside and occasionally a
blast of a night out!
What I’m doing with my life
I am a copywriter in Brighton, I also volunteer with a housing
association, I am divorced with two teenagers living at home, and a
third at university. I have a busy work/social life, but always
have time to meet new people and experience new things.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh! I'm good at painting and writing. Holding
intelligent conversation, having the most of life, and friends have
told me I'm always someone they can rely on.
The first things people usually notice about me
My bleach blonde hair (!) and my outgoing side.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite authors are Jonathan Franzen ( just finished Freedom -
magnificent), Jonathan Coe - Rotters Club, House of Sleep etc, Iain
Banks - Wasp Factory etc (not the Sci Fi), and classics - Anna
Karenina of course, Zola - everything, Madame Bovary and everything
by Raymond Carver. Films - I love cinema & usually go every
week - recently saw King's Speech which was painful to watch it was
so good, and surprisingly good was Danny Boyle's 127 hours - only
he could make a story about a man in a hole so gripping! Love
Breaking the Waves, Cuckoo's Nest, Shining, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir
Love Jazz, Mowtown, Blues, Gospel, some Folk, some Indie, some
Classical, old favs include John Martin Nick Drake, Oregon and
Blood, Sweat & Tears - just loads and always open to new sounds
Food - I like most cuisine, not esp into eating out - would rather
cook or be cooked for!!
The six things I could never do without
A good book
(...oh and an occasional cigarette and glass of vino!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the future might hold...
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking a fab meal for friends and family or enjoying live music at
one of Brighton's many fab venues.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Invite me out for a drink and I'll tell you!
You should message me if
Get in touch if you are laid back, well spoken, up for a laugh but
genuine, strictly not a womaniser, and enjoy good conversation.
