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. :)

"Goody Two Shoes" - Prefects

I was recently thinking back to my early SmileyRose days. Hmmm yes it was some years ago when someone probably saw the potential in me during my school days, well you never know. ;):)

I was once made prefect and then head prefect at one of the schools I attended. :) My teachers were named Mr Barrington and the Deputy head teacher was Mr Powers. Both teachers gave me the encouragement and the confidence at school to go on to achieve other things within my life.  When they made me prefect they showed me that they believed in me...and it helped me gain the confidence I needed at the time. :)
 
I remember standing up in front of a whole classroom full of pupils whilst we played hangman during the wet lunch hour. The prefects were responsible for entertaining the pupils during the wet breaks. Our daily duties included: standing at the vaious points around the school building, mostly near to the school entrance/exits. We were on guard and we were there to prevent other pupils from entering the school building during their breaks/lunch times etc. It was great not being treated like a child and to be given some form of responsibility whilst we were still at school. :) It was all good fun at the time but the downside was that we tended to miss out having our breaks with the rest of our friends. ;)

Ps I have to admit....most prefects I have known during my time have always been my favourite folk. We're nice folk. ;)
