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. :)

'39 Steps' At The Criterion Theatre

I had a wonderful day in London yesterday. :)

I caught the train to London Kings Cross. :)

When I reached London I browsed around one or two shops before ending up at China Town. I found a lovely little Chinese restaurant at lunchtime. I met an elderly husband and his wife who were dining at the same restaurant. I commented to the lady whilst chatting to her what beautiful skin some Chinese women had and how I noticed this during my trip to China on a holiday a few years ago. I also commented how nice Chinese food is. The lady paid me such a lovely compliment too. She told me how beautiful I looked. How sweet. She also taught me how to use chopsticks. :)

After lunch I set off for the Criterion Theatre and I booked a ticket to see '39 Steps'...the Alfred Hitchcock thriller.  It was terribly funny. I really enjoyed it because it was so cleverly acted by just four fabulous actors. :)  It was simply the best. It made me laugh out loud...which is just what I needed to help cheer me up. Whilst I was at the theatre my eyes met someone else's. Mmm wonders if we shall ever meet again? Ooo he made the blood rush to my cheeks alright. ;o)

I've met a number of lovely folk during my travels to and from London on a number of occasions.  :)

I stopped off at a really great cafe, The Caffe Concerto (my new favourite cafe). I had a cappuccino and a frangipani (delicious!) whilst chatting to a lovely lady who came from Milan. She was very interesting to chat to and we seemed to get along together really well. She was just visiting England for a few days. :)

I later went to Covent Garden and I visited the Transport Museum. :)

I felt very unsure about tube ride back to Kings Cross Station though. Ewww the tube was packed full of folk. We had to stand so close together, almost like a tin of sardines...Eww not my cup of tea. I did not enjoy that part of the day at all. Goodness! London isn't the same as it used to be. There are far too many folk living there for my liking and it totally put me off. Well the underground travel put me off mainly because it was just too busy.  Having said that...the few folk I did meet yesterday were all so lovely. :)

I chatted with a really nice guy and a couple of ladies on the train journey home. It was great to meet such nice folk. :)

It was a very tiring day....and I was absolutely shattered when I eventually reached home. I couldn't wait to make myself a nice cup of tea. ;o)

Marriage Isn't For Everyone....:o)

Yes I think everyone should marry if they are in love with each other and they are prepared to share their lives with someone else. :)

I think marriage should be taken seriously; therefore couples should look into doing so with both eyes opened so to speak.

Marriage isn't about wearing a big fancy dress or an excuse to party....there are long periods of time after the wedding day to consider as well, especially once the children arrive. :)

I was once married and I have no regrets about marriage what-so-ever. If I had to do it all over again, then I would...but only to the right man. By the way, I am indeed a woman. ;o)

Unlike Hugh I have never ruled the idea of marriage out completely. I was a little hesitant about ever considering marriage again at first. In fact it was the furthest thing away from my mind for a few years. Now some 7yrs down the line I sometimes think how nice it would be to share my life with one special person again, but I'm in no hurry to tie the knot so to speak. :)

I'm happy plodding along and if love ever grabs hold of me again then I would seriously consider it.

If two people are in love and they want to cement their relationship together or if they are gay and they want to have a civil partnershp together....then I say "Go For It" and "Good Luck" ;o)

Oh and should give marriage a whirl, you might actually like it. Go for it!  ;o)

I mostly associate marriage between a man and a woman. What difference does it make if gay couples have a civil partnership...? It's all about cementing their relationship together and making a commitment to one another that makes a difference...surely?
