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. :)

Wimbledon Mens Final - 2013

Andy Murray wins the 2013 Wimbledon Mens Championship Finals!

Well done on the Centre Court at Wimbledon today Andy Murray! What a great day for sport. :)

Andy Murray played against  Novak DJokovic at Wimbledon this afternoon. What a tense game it was too. Murray Won 3 Sets to Love. The third set was so tense. There were three occasions when Murray was open to win championship points however Kjokovic seemed to defend himself quite brilliantly, however Murray proved what a strong player he was this year because he went on to win the match. I am sure it must have been the banana he ate during the interval. He seemed to come back with great strength after that. It was just brilliant. It was an omen I'm sure.....I've always had a thing about monkey's and bananas. ;)

It was great to see a few famous people in the crowds: David Cameron, Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler to name just a few. I admit to losing concentration when the two latter names appeared on my screen. LOL :)

Twelve months ago I sat down to watch Andy Murray play in the Wimbledon Finals only to lose to Federer. So if anyone deserved to win at the Wimbledon Finals this year, then it's Andy Murray because he really deserved this win. I am so pleased for him. It's been a fabulous Wimbledon. I have loved it!

It has been 77 years since Britain won the last Wimbledon Championship title. Fred Perry was the last British player to win. All the more reason for the pressure to be on Andy Murray today. Big Cheers! :)

Ps What did I always tell you? You must never hurry a Murray. ;)
