My self-summary
First and foremost, I chose my user name because it is the name of my favourite rose! As for me; I am a professional person working in the IT industry. I like to think of myself as easy going, with a sense of humour, and I enjoy a bit of banter with my friends. I love books and films, quizzes (where my fount of useless information sometimes comes in handy!), and being with friends on walks or at dinner. I do like a glass of wine in the evening, although I am no wine buff. I used to be an active Tennis and Badminton player, but recent ill health (nothing serious, just frustrating) has curtailed these activities although I am now looking to start playing sport again. I am looking for someone to share my social life with; theatre, cinema, travel, walking etc. and someone who doesn't mind listening when I need someone to talk to.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it!
I’m really good at
Whatever it is, it isn't "filling out questionnaires"! The more questions I answer the more "less"es I get. Lets be clear - I am fairly organised, I AM adventurous, (I used to ski black runs and off piste, I raced formula ford when I was younger, I used to windsurf - cracked a rib on my honeymoon - how romantic!) I used to play loads of sport but ill health (not serious, just annoying) has left me less able to do these things, so this year I am going cross-country skiing and snow shoeing, and my next "thing" is to walk across the Millenium Dome (not massively exciting but hey, it is there). I have an ambition to walk to the top of Kilimanjaro, and see Machu Pichu... I am seriously thinking of deleting some of my answers to get rod of that so called "personality" - now if only I were really good at working out how that Staff Robot thinks...
The first things people usually notice about me

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently I have spent a lot of time thinking about what I can write in the section!! However I guess I think most about when and how I can retire!
On a typical Friday night I am
Glad it is the weekend!!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not!!!
You should message me if
You want to start an email conversation with a view to seeing how that goes before perhaps meeting up. Also it would be useful if you lived in and around London as opposed to the US....??? (Why am I getting emails from the US?) I am not looking for the email equivalent of a pen pal I'm afraid!
