About Me

My photo
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. :)

GP's Urge Parents To.....

Whooping cough aka Pertussis - DPT and DTaP Vaccines.

Whooping cough is highly infectious. I heard only today that there was a small epidemic in the UK. Wonders if anyone actually disagrees with the vaccines.

Both of my children were vaccinated against whooping cough when they were small babies because I heard the risks of babies catching the infection were fairly high and in some cases it resulted in fatal consequences. I had to weigh up the pros and cons of having my children vaccinated. I'd also read about the harrowing stories of damage and death caused by the pertussis vaccines.

Wonders if such vaccines are harmful/dangerous to your child/ren?

Some GPs have actually urged parents to immunise their children against whooping cough after a rise in cases across the South East in the first three months of this year.
