- Frances R. A. Napper
- My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

A family of three tomatoes were walking down town one day when the little baby tomato started lagging behind. The big father tomato walks back to the baby tomato, stomps on her, squashing her into a red paste, and says, "Ketchup!" :)

The film also stars Paula Patton who offers a little glamour to the action movie.
Ok...we'd better not get too excited just yet as the film isn't due out until the week before Christmas. It's something to look forward to. ;)
I love this theme music....I want to be a spy. :o)
I once told a joke to one of my friends who came from another country and she looked at me blankly. I don't think she got it therefore her neurons didn't light up. I suppose language does make a difference sometimes when it comes to jokes...not everyone understands the British humour. ;)

Hmm I'd also like to try counting red sheep for a change just to see if they can put me to sleep any sooner. ;)
He then said to his aide, "Let him go." The aide opened up the door to a side office, and in ran a 7-foot long alligator, snarling and snapping.
The general looked straight at his new people and said "You're each going to have to demonstrate COMMITMENT."
He then undid his belt and dropped his trousers around his knees. Immediately the alligator ran up and sunk his teeth right into the general's family jewels and held on tight. The general winced, but instantly composed himself and shouted, "This is COMMITMENT!"
He waited several seconds more, then took two of his fingers and jabbed the alligator in both eyes. The gator flipped over on his back, jumped up, and ran into the corner of the office, glaring angrily at the general.
"That, my friends, is COMMITMENT. Which one of you is ready to demonstrate his COMMITMENT?"
There was much shuffling of feet and murmuring. Finally an AF fighter pilot stepped forward and said, "I will sir, if you promise not to poke me in the eyes."
I relate someone who is a commitment phobe to someone who has 'never' been in a committed or a long term relationship before. You don't have to be married to be committed to one partner. So in reply to your question, I wouldn't say that I was a commitment phobe as such mainly because I was married for a number of years and I was definitely committed to my husband at the time. I'm happy not to be a spinster. :)
If I met the right man, we both fell in love and we decided to get married for the right reasons, only then would I consider getting wed again. I'm not really looking to get married to just any man just to stop folk from wondering why I'm still single. :)
I'm not looking to start a family because I've already done that one...and worn the tea-shirt. As I said before, I want to make certain that I marry the right person and it would take someone really special to make me want to go down that route again. I do love babies though, so it's very tempting. :)
Ask Me Anything, Just As Long As It's Within Reason. :)

The George Hotel
A view taken from the Stamford Bridge
The above picture of Stamford reminds me of my childhood. I always knew I was home once I reached this destination if ever we went away on holiday etc. :)

Later in the afternoon we stopped off at the George Hotel. I had a little walk around the gardens. It's been quite some time since my last visit but it was nice to see that some of the staff were still the same old folk I remember. :)
A lovely day was had by all. :)
One of the stalls at the Antique Fair
Actor Daniel Craig and actress Rachel Weisz have tied the knot together. Hmmm one wonders could Mr Craig manage to persuade 007 to do the same? I'm still available. ;)
I recently went to see the film 'The First Grader' at the cinema. The film tells the true story of Kimani N'gan'ga Maruge who is an 84 yr old former Mau Mau fighter from Kenya who is tortured by the British in the 1950s. He hears about free universal education and decides to present himself at a primary school. He demands to enroll and is prepared to go as far as dressing up in a school uniform just as the other school kids.
He eventually gets himself an entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's oldest primary school pupil.
It's a heartwarming film with a few tear jerker bits in it too. So be prepared. It was a lovely film.

I recently went to watch 'Bridesmaids' at the Showcase cinema. I won't spoil the plot but there were moments when I was rolling about in the aisles. It was a long film which had quite a few funny moments to it and it was well worth a watch. Big thumbs up! :)

The actor was famed for being the forgetful detective who always wore the same rain mac and smoked cigars. He had been ill for quite some time and had been battling against dementia and Alzheimer’s.
RIP Peter Falk.
I sat down to watch the Apprentice recently. It's becoming exciting? Only the best are still surviving but it's all very sad that Sir Alan Sugar had to fire someone else on the programme. I'm so glad he hasn't fired my favourite yet. I can't wait to watch the next programme. It's a great shame any one of those who remain have to go really.
A genie appeared and thanked the man for letting him out. The genie said, "For your kindness I will grant you one wish, but only one."
The man thought for a minute and said, "I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but have never been able to because I'm afraid of flying and ships make me claustrophobic and ill. So I wish for a road to be built from here to Hawaii."
The genie thought for a few minutes and said, "No, I don't think I can do that. Just think of all the work involved with the pilings needed to hold up the highway and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement that would be needed. No, that is just too much to ask."
The man thought for a minute and then told the genie, "There is one other thing that I have always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why are they emperamental, why are they so difficult to get along with? Basically, what makes them tick?"
The genie considered for a few minutes and said, "So, do you want two lanes or four?"

When you were married, I know you're not now but did you have a big wedding and how many bridesmaids did you have? Have you ever been a bridesmaid before?
I had four bridesmaids which included two adult bridesmaids and two little ones. I suppose they're both much taller than me these days, but at the time they were both little dots. They all looked pretty in peach.
Yes I have been a bridesmaid three times, for my aunty and uncle, for a good friend and for some Cypriot friends who had the full orthodox wedding. It was rather spectacular as the wedding went on for days. :)

One sunny afternoon, out of nowhere, appeared the Fairy Godmother. Cinderella said: 'Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all these years?' The Fairy Godmother replied: 'Well Cinderella, since you have lived a good, wholesome life since we last met, I have decided to grant you 3 wishes. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?'
Cinderella is taken aback, overjoyed and after some thoughtful consideration and almost under her breath she uttered her first wish. 'I wish I was wealthy beyond comprehension.' Instantly her rocking chair was turned into solid gold. Cinderella was stunned.
Cinderella said 'Oh thank you, Fairy Godmother!' The Fairy Godmother replied 'It is the least I can do. What is your second wish?' Cinderella looked down at her frail body and said: 'I wish I was young and full of the beauty of youth again.'
At once, her wish having been desired, became reality, and her beautiful youthful visage had returned. Cinderella felt stirrings inside her that had been dormant for years and long forgotten vigour and vitality began to course through her very soul. Then the Fairy Godmother spoke again: 'You have one more wish, what shall you have?'
Cinderella looked over to Alan, who was now quivering in the corner with fear. 'I wish you to transform my old cat, Alan, into a beautiful and handsome young man.' Magically, Alan suddenly underwent so fundamental a change in his biologicial make up, that when he stoof before her, he was a boy, so beautiful the like of which she nor the world had ever seen, so fair indeed that birds begun to fall from the sky at his feet.
The Fairy Godmother said: 'Congratulations Cinderella! Enjoy your new life.' With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, she was gone.
For a few moments, Alan and Cinderella looked into each other's eyes. Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most stunningly perfect boy she had ever seen. Then Alan walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her rocking chair, and held her close in his muscular arms.
He leant close to her ear, and into her ear breathed as much as whispered, blowing her hair with his warm breath, 'I bet you regret having me neutered now, don't you? ;)

Children often find it harder to explain their dissatisfaction about something, so they whine. I suppose it is a child's way of complaining about something they're not very happy with. :)
Useful Tips - Ways To Stop Whining - Good Luck! :) Click Here For Below Article
Notice when she whines and choose your response. Changing the pattern of whining begins when you change how you respond to it.
When you notice her whining, call her attention to it. Whining has become an unconscious habit by the time she reaches elementary school. She needs to learn to recognize it first. Some strategies you can try are:
Purposeful ignoring. You can even say "I'm ignoring you when you use your whiny voice. Try again in your normal voice and I'll pay attention."
Whine back. Use a bit of humor to cue her to notice her whining by showing what a whiny voice sounds like.
Stop her immediately when she whines and say, "Do you hear that you are whining? Tell me the same thing in your normal voice."
Tone of voice is the hallmark of whining, but the child's reaction to being told 'no' is another component of whining. She needs to learn a new habit to replace whining, so help her learn the right approach to asking for what she wants. Asking politely is an important social skill that you can teach directly. To teach a child to accept 'no' for an answer can be more of a challenge. I like the approach from Common-Sense Parenting. Teach your child to:
Stop and look at Mum or Dad
Stay calm. Do not argue or whine.
If you disagree, discuss it later, calmly and in private.
Reinforce non-whining. Focus on the problem for 2-3 months, and thereafter if the habit creeps back. Notice when she asks politely and when she accepts 'no' for an answer without whining. Praise and reward her to reinforce the new learning. When she does whine, pause, look at her, and call attention to the whining if necessary. Help her think through what she should say and how to practice the new learning. Watch your own whining too, so that social learning doesn't overcome your efforts too, so that social learning doesn't overcome your efforts to break your child's whining habit.
What do you think about relationships which have a huge age gap? Have you ever been in a relationship with someone who was younger or much older than you?
I am less likely to be in a relationship with someone who is much younger than me mainly because once you reach retirement age you're less likely to enjoy your retirement together, particularly if one of you still has to go out to work and the other doesn't.
Retirement is likely to be very different to being a full-time mother because when your partner leaves for work each day you often have to face a busy day in the home with the children. It is not the same as being retired because you very rarely get the time to sit back and relax when you are a busy housewife/mother.
I am less likely to be in a relationship with someone who is much older than me because I am not looking for a paternal figure in my life. Sugar daddies just don't do anything for me. ;)
Apart from all of the above, I am also very reluctant to want to be in a relationship with a man who doesn't share the similar memories as I do ie., music, films news etc and I would much prefer growing old together ie., there's something sexy about kissing wrinkles together. ;)
So there you have it in a nutshell....although I will never say never, just in case. ;)
Are you trying to age me before my time? No! Of course not! :)
Perhaps if they changed the question around a little and asked the male celebrity who most would like to kiss me?...then it would free up some of my dilemma. ;)

When I was growing up my Father played a very important role in my life also. Although my Father worked hard for much of the time particularly when he was in the RAF we always went on tour/lived abroad with him. He was never far away and we spent some unforgettable times together as a family.
Like our Mother's role within our lives our Father's role was also that of an important one and it should not go unnoticed. In most households, particularly in my childhood, the Dad often had to work long hours because he was the main breadwinner in the family and he helped provide a comfortable home for us all. We had times when we spent some special times together and they were times I shall aways cherish. :)
I remember the day he took me and my younger sister to see the film 'The Railway Children' at the cinema. I almost bawled my eyes out when Roberta saw her father coming through the steamed filled railway station and then she runs towards her Father shouting "Daddy, my daddy"...aww that was a lovely film.
I remember after one of my boyfriends died in an automobile accident and how my father was around to comfort me. He was also there when I was going through other relationship break-ups and he has always been a great comforter.
I remember the time I took my Father shopping with me. We were out clothes shopping and how he had tremendous patience watching me as I kept popping out to ask his opinion on the outfit I was trying on.
My father has had his share of health problems over the years, however amazingly with his strength and determination he has done remarkably well considering. There was a time when we thought he wasn't going to be around for too much longer but he managed to pull through those tough times. Ill health can cause havoc on the family and it can be a very stressful time indeed.
We've had our share of problems over the years too, but when it comes to the crunch he's the only dad I have and I am truly grateful and very proud to have him around still. Thanks for the laughs we've had together too...and here's to a few more. ;) :)

I'd just like to wish my Dad a very happy father's day....particuarly as he's been my father now for a very long time. ;) I popped over to visit him a few days ago. I tend to make a weekly trip to see him so that we can catch up on all of the news together or put the world to rights. How I love spending time with my dad. :)
I know some of you no longer have your dads around anymore perhaps because they may have passed away. I'm hoping you have this day to remember your parent. It can't be very easy for anyone to lose a parent which is the reason why you are all in my thoughts today too.
Also, to all of you other dads/fathers out there. I hope you all have a lovely day today/whenever else you all choose to celebrate this day. I know some of you maybe without your children on this day for whatever the reasons...here's thinking about you too. :) Also to all of you step father's out there. Some can be pretty cool.
Last but not least...a message for both of my daughters. I hope you have a lovely day with your father today. :)
Have a lovey day all. x

Are there any fruitarians in here?
For those of you who don't know what a fruitarian is, fruitarians choose to eat only fruits and vegetables that can be harvested without killing the plant. For example, they will eat apples and tomatoes, but not potatoes or carrots... so you perhaps wouldn't want to eat any carrots for your dinner if you wold like to be a fruitariun ;)

Ewww! I have just been looking at photographs of folk who were involved in a drunken brawl at the Royal Ascot event. Some folk just don't have what it takes to be classy!
Money can't buy you class. :)
I began my weekend last night by chilling out with a few girly folk. I've worn myself out nattering.
The study also revealed that about 61.5 per cent of the time men were much more likely to say the phrase "I Love You" first, perhaps because they have an ulterior motive. Home truths revealed that men are more likely to prefer hearing those three little words earlier on in the relationship, not because they’re being soppy/a big softy, but because they see it as a sign that a woman is ready to go to bed with them. A man is likely to tell a woman he loves her at least 6wks earlier than a women does, mainly because men have a stronger desire to motivate early sexual activity in relationships.
Hmm so now you know. ;)

One day he met a girl and fell in love. When it became apparent they would marry, he thought to himself, she'll never go through with the marriage with me carrying on like this, so he made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans. Shortly after that they were married.
A few months later, on the way home from work, his car broke down and since they lived in the country, he called his wife and told her he would be late because he had to walk. On his way home, he passed a small cafe and the wonderful aroma of baked beans overwhelmed him. Since he still had several miles to walk he figured he could walk off any ill effects before he got home. So he went in and ordered, and before leaving had 3 extra large helpings of baked beans. All the way home he putt-putted. By the time he arrived home he felt reasonably safe. His wife met him at the door and seemed somewhat excited. She exclaimed, Darling, I have the most wonderful surprise for you for dinner tonight! She put a blindfold on him, and led him to his chair at the head of the table and made him promise not to peak. At this point he was beginning to feel another one coming on. Just as his wife was about to remove the blindfold, the telephone rang. She again made him promise not to peek until she returned, and away she went to answer the phone. While she was gone, he seized the opportunity. He shifted his weight to one leg and let go. It was not only loud, but ripe as a rotten egg. He had a hard time breathing, so he felt for his napkin and fanned the air about him. He had just started to feel better, when another urge came on. He raised his leg and RRIIIPPPP!!! It sounded like a diesel engine revving, and smelled worse. To keep from gagging, he tried fanning his arms a while, hoping the smell would dissipate. He got another urge. This was a real blue ribbon winner, the windows shook, the dishes on the table rattled and a minute later the flowers on the table were dead. While keeping an ear tuned in on the conversation in the hallway, and keeping his promise of staying blindfolded, he carried on like this for the next ten minutes, letting rip and fanning each time with his napkin. When he heard the phone farewells he neatly laid his napkin on his lap and folded his hands on top of it. Smiling contentedly, he was the picture of innocence when his wife walked in. Apologizing for taking so long, she asked if he had peeked at the dinner table. After assuring her he had not peeked, she removed the blindfold and yelled, SURPRISE!!! To his shock and horror, there were twelve dinner guests seated around the table for his surprise birthday party. :0)
One cowboy muttered to the other, "I don't like the sound of them drums."
Just then, an Indian voice came over the hill, "It's not our usual drummer!"

Let me explain!
My first name is: Frances
My surname is: Napper
If you take the last letter of my first name, the letter 'S' and add it to my surname 'Napper'... it then becomes Snapper.... and I love to take snaps. :)
See! I told you so. ;)
I hope that now explains things. :)
Ps Not alot of folk know this but not only is the shortened form of my name FRAN, it is also an acronym of all of my names put together. :)

Ps Did they end up living together in that little home right at the end...the one that boy mocks girl for living in a small home? Eww some guys are really snooty. ;)

No I've not thought about it at all. I'm happy playing with the monkey's. :)
The song also reminds me of the day I went to a bonfire night with the family when my two daughters were very young. It had been raining and there were lots of puddles along the way. The two of them kept jumping in all of the puddles and splashing everyone...mainly myself and my then hubby. Thankfully they were both wearing wellies. It's funny how some children can find the simplest of things, great fun. :)

Ps ...and so will Prince Charles, the Duke of Kent and Princess Anne who will all be riding the Queen's Escort. :)
On the show there was the daughter of Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli. I have always been a huge fan of old musicals. Although I wasn't around to appreciate them when I was young, I have watched many of the old musical films when they used to show repeat films. I had a love for the music around in that time. Judy Garland was absolutely fabulous. Liza of course followed in her famous mothers footsteps by becoming a singer, however I hear she was far more into dancing as a young woman. :)
Then I watched comedian Jack Dee who was on the show to plug his new comedy 'Lead Balloon.'
I watched an Indian chef teaching us how to make an Indian B-B-Q. I must admit to feeling more in need of some of that delicious Indian Lussi drink. Yum yums.;)
Last but not least was a young lady who sang with a lovely voice. Her name was Jackie Evancho and she sang "Nessun Dorma" beautifully.
It brought back some old memories of watching bits of the programme when the children were babies. Obviously there was some moments when they slept and I had the chance to sit back with a cup of tea. However, it used to be Richard and Judy hosting the programme back then. Shows how old I am. ;) Those were the days. ;)

Do you think all single/seperated guys who are over 45 and who are on facebook/twitter are looking for casual sex?
It is a more common trait for women to do much of the chattering and talking so I can understand females over this age who use the social networking sites for a bit of chatter. I much prefer to chat in person but I can chatter away on my blog site as it's quite natural for me to do so...I am a woman after all. I don't really chat to anyone else all that much over the internet and I mostly just blog. I don't have any private messaging on my blog site either.:)
If a guy is not single and he is not looking for a relationship then what is he looking for? He could be doing a little social networking I suppose but that would depend upon what businesses or associates etc he follows/adds as his friendships.
Erm if he's on facebook and he mostly adds females as his networking friends, then what is he looking for? Most guys who are looking for love would be stating that this is what they're after in the looking for females comment box.....or they'd have a status which tells everyone they're already in a relationship. A guy who states neither, he's over 45 then one would assume he's looking for something casual.
I don't know the answers, I'm just assuming. :)
Do I believe in the bible?
God wanted his teachings to be passed down throughout the generations because he believed that his basic teachings would provide a much better place/world for us all to live in. He spread his teachings wide and far through his son Jesus and Jesus’ followers/disciples. More than anything God wanted peace on earth irrespective of anything else. He wanted folk to follow some good morals through his teachings. God wanted his teaching to be passed on to mankind throughout the centuries to come. This would be done by teaching young children his bible stories from an early age and then passing Gods word onto the next generations to come. Look at it like a religious rule book if you like. This is why the bible was written and it is the reason why it's not a bad book to follow. :)
Lots of folk have made mistakes along the way and they've not done everything exactly according to the bible, but remember God can be forgiving. I think he is more forgiving to those who have understood they have been wrong and they never go back to make those same mistakes again. Sometimes folk do not know they are making mistakes because they lack education/a good upbringing. All is not lost because they can be taught. Sometimes those who have committed any wrong doing, they sometimes have to pay the penalties for what they've done. A serious crime committed won't immediately make God forgive, but his teachings could help prevent someone from doing the same again. :)
This is another one of the Jenny Packham pink tulle gowns/designs. It's a very elegant style seen here modelled on the catwalk. She certainly has designed some fabulous gowns over the years. :)
Here are just a few more of her elegant styles. Lovely. Although I am not really up to wearing too many mini skirts anymore I think the short dresses look lovely on some of the younger folk. :)

Firstly I watched last Saturdays repeat programme of 'Britain’s Got Talent.' Well done to this year's winner Jai McDowall, he really does have talent and he's a well deserved winner.
A friend recently bought me a DVD boxed cassette of TV soap 'The Bill.' I sat down to watch a couple of episodes this evening and they brought back a few nostalgic memories.
I don't remember watching the pilot episode of the programme, which was released back in 1984; however I do remember watching the very first programme of the series which began just over a year later.
The pilot episode of 'The Bill' began with Jim Carver's alarm going off for the early shift. He joins Sunhill Police Station as a probationer but almost gets himself suspended after his first day in the job.
Then I watched the very first episode of 'The Bill.' It began with Bob Cryer driving into work ready to brief the morning shift. It was quite nostalgic sitting back to watch the soap again. Awww! How I miss watching 'The Bill'.
Of course I also remember watching the very last episode of the soap too.
:( Did anyone campaign in favour of keeping the programme running? If not, then they ought to have done. :)
Some Cypriot Halloumi Cheese on Ryvita crispbread. :)
A sense of humour...you need it sometimes. ;)
In the past I have supported my sister and another friend as a guest at their Graduation ceromonies. Recently it was great fun to sit back and support someone else on their success at their graduation ceremony. A good day was had by all. :)
I was recently a guest at the Ely Cathedral whereby I watched a number of folk, including my friend step up to receive the conferment of their Degree. It was super to be a part of the celebrations on the day and I applauded all of those Open University students on their success. One lady in particular made me applaud for much longer than usual as she was an inspiration to the rest of us. She was a very elderly lady to say the least and she was there to receive her award which I feel certain she worked very hard for. Well done to her!
It was great to meet and chat to some other lovely folk who were all attending the same venue. I applaud them all as they have all done remarkably well. Studying for an Open University degree takes time and a great deal of effort. It requires a lot of support from others around you. It was noted that it can be particularly difficult for those who work full-time and who also have family committments to be able to study for a degree in the first place. Well done to them all. All of those folk who stood on that stage to collect their awards were all honoured for the day. :)
So now that my friend has a higher qualification than me...will it inspire me to go any further with my own qualifications/study? Hmmm Maybe. Maybe not. We'll have to wait and see. ;)
For all of you girls who like to copy the styles of the celebs/famous out there. Remember! It is only their dress sense/style you are copying but it doesn't miraculously change the person you are! You are who you are.
I would not consider anyone else out there to be 'exactly' like me no matter how much they think they may look like me. I would like to think of myself as an individual who is quite unique. ;)
I do not profess to knowing it all however I know a lot for my years. I love to absorb other folks contribution to new conversation and I love listening to their stories. :)
I am a great listener and I am also good at offering my own opinions whenever necessary.
I like listening to other folks good advise when they offer it to me and I am also good at offering others my own good advise too. :) I tend to treat good advise like a useful tip given to you by someone else who wishes to be helpful. If the advise given to you still leaves you with some uncertainties/doubts then it's best not to take it. In other words...it is always nice to listen to others who offer you their good advise however whether you take it or not is entirely up to you. We are all responsible for making our own choices in life. :)
I'd tend to agree with the above as I have always maintained that even when I was a youngster I learned so much from the older generation. However, now that I am one of the older generation myself I know that others can learn quite a bit from me too.:)
Anyone older than 48 yrs is considered to be the older generation in my books. If you're any younger then you still have a lot to learn. ;)

I'm less likely to want to socialize with these folk because I don't share anything in common with any of them. :)
Quoted from Wikipedia:
"Chavs are said to be aggressive teenagers, of working class background, who repeatedly engage in anti-social behaviour such as street drinking, drug abuse and rowdiness, or other forms of juvenile delinquency"
I do not like TV programmes which encourage this kind of behavior either. :)
LOL of course not! I would prefer it if males found the rest of me (particularly the front of me) quite sexy and not just my bottom! ;)

I'm unsure what you mean by this because my ex-husband has definitely never been responsible for me. When we were married we always took care of each other. Whilst he worked I took care of our children. I would never say that it was I who should take all of the credit/responsibility of looking after/caring for our children as it was a team effort on both of our parts to bring up our family together.
It is true that we are no longer married and that my ex husband is definitely not responsible for anything I do. In fact I work hard for a living and I am responsible for 'all' of my own bills etc. Yes I pay my own council tax too. My ex husband does not have any share in any of what I own these days therefore there is nothing we share jointly apart from our children. I feel sure we will both be responsible for sharing this same interest in our children even when they are drawing their pensions...provided of course we are both still alive by then. Our joint interest in our children will never die. :)
Francesland or Franland :o)
Singer Pink has given birth to a new baby girl named Willow. I've alway been quite partial to Willow trees, particularly as one of my favourite places to read as a young girl was underneath the old willow tree on the Stamford meadows. It's a nice name. :)

Then it was off to do a little target shooting. Heck! I hit the bullseye three times. I was a total natural. ;)
It was then off to watch a few horsey games. It was such good fun. I of course was rooting for the winners...which incidentally were the Lincolnshire team. ;)
Goodness! It's beginning to look like a scene from a Cowboy and Indians film. ;)
The Lincolnshire team. :)
The winners do a lap of honour. :)
