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. :)

D-Day - June 6th 1944

Many of my Friends will not remember June 6th 1944, mainly because none of us were even born back then however just because we were not around 70 years ago, it does not mean we should not pay our respect to all of those war heroes who lost their lives/war veterans who were involved in the world war and D-Day.

D-Day was a military term used for The Normandy landings on 6th June 1944. It was codenamed Operation Neptune and it was the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II. It was the largest seaborne invasion noted in history.

Yesterday evening I enjoyed listening to "Friday Night is Music Night" on Radio 2, a special commemorative programme in order to remember the D-Day events. It was very good. I loved listening to all of the old songs during that time. It was fabulous.
