My self-summary
Please don't contact me if you live outside the UK.....thank you!

I'm fit and active, like to have challenges and goals and i'm passionate about things I care about. Confident(ish), but in a quiet way and not easily offended..yet i'm that a contradition? I prefer to observe rather than being in the thick of things. I can be silly, serious when need be and hopefully interesting company. I believe I have a lot to offer the right (lucky) man haha. With 3 grown up children and a career in a social work team, hopefully I have a flexible attitude to life and can see things from others' points of view. Work is only a part of my life and evenings and weekends are my own to enjoy, walking, a little running, cycling, reading, family and friends, gardening, charity shops, local music, places of interest....loads more really, which you can find out if I've piqued your interest a little bit!

There has to be some 'chemistry' but for me that really is more to do with emotional intelligence and those indefinable quirky things we all have, much more than looks. If you also have good manners and kindness, an inquisitive mind and a sense of adventure and fun, then... happy days!

I'm pretty independent and happy in my own company.... well not all the time otherwise I wouldn't be on here. So it would be lovely to share some of my life and interests with someone special, to make plans together and share life's ups and downs.
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard, but hoping to cut my hours. I have 3 grown up children - 1 in Oz so I try to plan a trip every year....join me! I like learning new things and have studied through work and also completed a counselling course. Love cycling (but can't at the moment)- I've cycled the Leeds/Liverpool canal, the coast to coast and a couple of 100 milers. I also love walking and a little running....then get to eat chocolate!
I’m really good at
Observing - so if you've added 2" to your height I'll notice! And if your dad turns up to meet me and not that hot guy in your pic...i'll notice that too :)
Listening - communication is so important, I listen to what people say, and show an interest. Hopefully that's important to you too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know....I'm tall? and slim? visual things I guess initially
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I love reading and always have one on the go.
Music - that overused phrase "eclectic taste in music".
The six things I could never do without
walking boots
food/drink - chocolate, tea, banana bread, my excellent salads
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy it's Friday night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm admitting nothing :)
