This year I've also been doing those things I always wanted to do but didn't have time. I've travelled a lot - to Norway to see the northern lights, to Rome, France, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands - and I've also spent lots of time chilling out at home. I love wierd local English festivals and the Cheese Rolling in Gloucestershire was the first on my list that I went to. I've still got lots to do - I'd love to go hiking in the Isle of Skye, visit Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, New Orleans, China and Burma.
Dog agility is my newist passion. Who would believe that running around a field directing my collie to jumps through hoops and run through tunnels would be so much fun. My dream is to be able to compete with her, perhaps a pipe dream as focus is not her thing when there is a bird about to chase!!!
I've been a swing dancer (mostly Lindy Hop and Balboa) for years, and I'm often found dancing somewhere in the world. I'll always be a swing dancer - no interest in salsa, tango, jive or ballroom, the music just doesn't inspire me at all.
My dog, home, family and friends are really important to me. My garden and walks in the countryside are my bread and butter of life. I love to travel but it is home which makes me feel grounded.
Eventually I've reached the stage in life that I want to find the right man, settle down and have kids - but in a slightly more alternative way. I'm not sure what that looks like, but it's definately not doing a part time job in an office. I also feel very strongly that having kids doesn't mean not living or having fun. For me it means exploring life with a similar vigour yet in an adapted way with little people in tow.
Zest for life
Passion for the things I enjoy doing
I love trying new food, especially street food in far flung places. I'm pretty open minded - fennel is about the only thing which is a definite no.
I like reading books about real life stories like Touching the Void.
Number 2 is the countryside - particularly woods. I could never live somewhere where I had to get in a car to get out into the wild.
Number 3 - my garden
Number 4 - swing dancing and swing music
5,6 - gosh I'm not sure.
BUT the things I would like to be able to do without are mobile phones, computers, and cars.
- The fun things I can do in the future
- How lovely it is having time to do what I want, when I want.
- How my dog has turned from being a chaotic nightmare into a sweet loving creature.
- How long I can make this happy bliss I'm in last for
- Will I meet someone I really get on with via the internet - lots of my friends have, so I know it's possible.
- What else do I want to do with my year off
You are open minded and interested in the world around you
You like dogs and walking in the countryside
You have style and take care of the way you look
Holidays for you are picking a place, packing a bag and seeing what happens and if UK based - with a dog
Living a healthy life is important to you
PS: send me a nice message. If you just say 'hi' or say something like 'you are beautiful' I'm very unlikely to reply.
