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. :)

OCRF - White Shirt Day

This Saturday May 19th is OCRF - White Shirt Day in Australia.

The day is all about creating awareness of Ovarian cancer.

In Australia one woman dies every 10hrs from ovarian cancer. It is very hard to detect ovarian cancer and by the time it is detected it is often too late. Early detection is the answer.

Wearing a white shirt is a charity which raises money to create awareness and to help with early detection of ovarian cancer.

There is currently a campaign on Twitter to create awareness about ovarian cancer.

It is always good to support the various causes. There are so many folk who have suffered with the many different cancers, not only in Australia but also here in the UK...in fact right around the world.

If it helps with research then I am all for it therefore I am wearing my white shirt.

Thank you for your kind comment. Someone I knew had ovarian cancer therefore I thought it right to support this cause.
