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. :)

SmileyRose Christmas Message

I do hope everyone has had a pleasant Christmas time. I have had a very peaceful Christmas time with my Mum and my two daughters, Catherine and Lauren. It has been peaceful and relaxing few days. I loved it!

My thanks to everyone who gave me a Christmas present. I am so grateful. If you didn't give me a present, then shame on you! Just joking.;)

Thank you for the lovely presents. Thank you to my daughters for making my Christmas a special one. I love you both very much. My Mum made us a lovely dinner. I love her lots too. Thank you xxx

Lauren and I had a super day on Boxing day when we went sales shopping together and we went to see the new "Star Wars" film. A fabulous film!

Wow Catherine for driving up to spend time with me, on your own. The first time after passing your driving test! There's no stopping you now. ;)

Thankfully I have a few days away from work now. Yipppppeeeeee! ;)

God bless to all of my friends, family and anyone else who knows me. Here's to a fabulous 2016. Xx

My Lovely Nativity Set :)

This is what Christmas is all about. This is our family crib. It has always been displayed inside my home at Christmas time, especially when my children were very young. They loved me preparing our home ready for the festivities. :)

I Can Only Speak One Language!

I am not Italian, nor am I Portuguese! I do wish folk would stop confusing me for being either of those nationalities. I may look foreign, however I cannot speak any other languages apart from the English language. I am British and there wasn't a great necessity for me to learn another language when I was younger (I had no plans to live outside an English speaking country, therefore the English language was the only language spoken in my family home. My parents both speak the English language only too.

It is true, we did live abroad with the RAF, however the Royal Air Force had their own English Schools and hospitals for us to attend on the British base. There wasn't a great necessesity for me to learn another language during our tour abroad as we did not plan living there on a permenant basis.

Please remember, the colour of someone's skin does not determine what language they speak or dream in!

I am proud of who I am, as everyone else ought to be proud of who they are too, but I do wish people would stop assuming that I speak another language. :)

Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even;
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight,
Gath'ring winter fuel.
'Hither, page, and stand by me,
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?'
'Sire, he lives a good league hence,
Underneath the mountain,
Right against the forest fence,
By Saint Agnes' fountain.'
'Bring me flesh and bring me wine,
Bring me pine logs hither,
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear them thither.'
Page and monarch forth they went,
Forth they went together,
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather.
'Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger;
Fails my heart, I know not how,
I can go no longer.'
'Mark my footsteps, good my page,
Tread thou in them boldly:
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly.'
In his master's steps he trod,
Where the snow lay dinted;
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed.
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing,
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing.

My Cowboy Hat

My cowboy hat!  It's an Australian cowboy hat. I bought it during a visit to the USA. The only problem I  had with it, was transporting it back to England.  It wasn't easy to pack.

My Visit To Stamford Bridge :)

I may lose a few friends, but I may gain a few too. ;)

It is true, I am a Chelsea supporter. A couple of weeks ago I had great pleasure in visiting the home of the Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge ;)

Here a few of my photographs. :)
