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. :)

I'm British!

I can understand why folk such as myself can feel a little insulted sometimes.  Sometimes when we are asked to state our ethnic origin, the nearest we can find is White British!  I am indeed very British however I am not White!  White is a colour! My grandmother was white and so are my children, however I am NOT white!  I detest having to put white British on a form, when I am hardly white in colour, even though I class England as my country!

I was brought up in England, I only speak the English language, therefore I don't fall into any other category but the British one, however I am not white in colour.  I think this category is all wrong because you are either British or you are Not British as far as I am concerned.  You cannot be both or many nationalities, you have one ethnic origin!:)
