Now, I work happily from home. I lost my 2 oldest dogs, 15 and 10.5, in July. It’s not been a great year for that sort of thing. BUT, I have 2 pups, 2 and 1, who keep me going all the time. They LOVE that I work at home. Yogi and Bear are wonderful company.
Not into clubs and "the scene"! I prefer places where I can hear the conversation and not have to shout back. I'm concentrating on the real, the now, the positive!
I am gregarious and open to new experiences. Love meeting new interesting people. Dining in or out is good; I love to cook, bake, and experiment. I enjoy making my own bread. I really enjoy finding a great bottle of wine at a ridiculously low price. I'm successful quite often!
I would like to meet someone who has a strong sense of friendship and family. I have a varied collection of friends; some on-going for 35+ years. Loyalty and trust are the keys to a great relationship. I'm honest, love to laugh even at stupid things, caring, passionate about my friends and living to enjoy life. I prefer to be happy and fun. Others like that about me!
I love to travel and the UK is a frequent destination. I have friends in London and relatives in Devon, Oxford and Northampton. I like driving in England. It's a brain and dexterity challenge.
I enjoy being outdoors; the beach, sailing when a boat is available (rather fair weather however), body boarding, gardening, picnic on a hike.
Indoor activities - Love Scrabble, just sitting around and talking, planning a trip! There are other fun things to do but we can discuss those at a later time.
~Cooking! Managed several restaurants and overcame my fear of concocting a bad dish. You can always toss it out and start over. Or order pizza.
~Making Friends. I'm gregarious and seem to attract others like moths to a flame (ha ha).
