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. :)

A Visit To Althorp House

I had a fabulous day today when I met some friends at Althorp House, Northants...the family home of the late Princess Diana.  The house was stunning to say the least.

I browsed the house. I particularly enjoyed the portraits. Afterwards we walked in the gardens and around the beautiful lake.  We later sat out in the sunshine at the cafe. I also enjoyed the exhibitions which included the beautiful wedding gown the late Princess wore on her weddng day. It also included cine film footage of the Princess during her younger days.

Photography was not allowed inside the house. :)
