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. :)

Mother Tongue: The English Language

I learnt how to speak English when I was a small child. :)  My first ever words were "Mummy" and "Daddy" :)

I went to an English only primary school at the age of 5yrs old. I could read and write a little before I attended school because my Mother helped me a little, just as I helped my own two daughters to read and write before they both began school.  Thinks every child should be able to write their full name at least before they start school.  :)

My first ever book was Janet and John. I remember reading aloud from the book to my parents and to the teachers at school. My first ever teacher was named Mrs Cuthbertson. She was a lovely lady. She chose me to play the Angel Gabriel in a school nativity play.  :)

Someone once asked me "What age did I learn how to speak English?"  They presumed I learned the language as a foreign student. English is my Mother tongue *TUTS*  :o)
