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. :)

Full-Time Mother or A Homemaker

When I looked after my children I preferred to be called a Full-Time Mother rather than a housewife because that makes you sound as if you are tied to the kitchen sink every day.  A Homemaker sounds a bit American I know but it is still much nicer than being called a housewife.

I did much more than just changing nappies, cleaning, ironing etc. I had the freedom to persue other things as well. I joined the various committees and I became Secretary at the Mothers and Toddlers group. I also helped on the committee as a Secretary at the pre-school committee. I was an unpaid volunteer at all of the groups.

It's always good to keep your mind active when you are a full time Mother :)

When my first daughter was born I was still at work before I went on maternity leave... therefore the birth certificate still showed my employent as an Administrative Assistant. :)
