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. :)

The End Of Another Era - Farewell Pope Benedict

I sadly missed Pope John Paul II after he died. He served as Pope for an incredible 27 years almost. He died in 2005. I was saddened to learn of his death. He had such a lovely and a friendly nature about him.

Hmm and now is the end of another era. Pope Benedict XVI is the first pope to willingly renounce the Papacy since Pope Celestine V in 1294.

I would like to say farewell Pope Benedict XVI .... and I wish you a happy retirement. :)

I wonder who we will welcome as the new Pope in 2013.


PS

It is very true that Father Barry was our parish priest when I was a young girl and he would personally come to pick me up every weekend for catechism classes. I made my first holy communion in Salisbury, Wiltshire when I was only 7yrs old.
