I am fun, smart, kind hearted, and I so don't feel my age. I have
two young boys who are awesome. I have a wonderful family. I am
someone who has a small group of very close friends, rather than a
large number of acquaintances.
I think I'm pretty normal and down to earth. No drama, no more or
less baggage than average. I can rock the little black dress (and
love doing so) or jeans. I once made the change from work suit to
black tie in 15 minutes. Fall is my favourite season because of the
boots. When I'm 80, the pattern of my face will show a life of
smiles and laughter.
When pressed for adjectives, my friends provided: real, lovely,
warm. They're very smart.
I will point out that my profile is totally honest - no fibbing
about my age or my size or anything else. I'm led to believe that's
What I’m doing with my life
Trying, mostly successfully, to balance a demanding job and being a
single mum half the week. Striving to see the bright side, always.
I’m really good at
In no particular order - puzzles, making beef bourgignon and butter
tarts (but not at the same time), making my kids laugh, listening,
kissing (but how does one really know?).
The first things people usually notice about me
Open and friendly smile, keen and intelligent mind showing through
sparkling blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list! Games of Thrones (books and tv), good tv dramas.
Princess Bride. Books tend toward mysterys and thrillers - Ian
Rankin, Michael Connolly, PD James, Elizabeth George. Music is all
over the map, from jazz to top 40 to 80s pop/rock and more.
The six things I could never do without
the laughter of my children
running, depending on the day
sadly, my Blackberry (although I try ...)
Why only 6? That's way too hard.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Often, strange random things. Today it's why an ad would say "now
with better ingredients" - what was it made with before?
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on the week, hanging with my boys and family, or enjoying
the company of friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Then it wouldn't really be private, would it?
But some semi-private things: a man once assumed I drove a minivan.
I haven't forgiven him. And I own a lot of underwear. A lot.
You should message me if
You like a real woman (not as in "real" housewife of wherever). You
enjoy good company, good conversation. You like holding hands and
making out. You're looking for more than one night.
