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. :)

Anglo-Indians :)

Here's a link that tells you a little about Anglo-Indians. It is very interesting.
Anglo-Indians usually have English roots. Depending on where they are brought up, it usually tells you which culture, language and religion they perceive themselves to be/have been brought up in. Those who are brought up in India, would usually be able to speak another language, depending how they are brought up by their parents.

My grandmother was named Dorothy Agnes Shreeves. She went to reside in India, from the UK, during the British Raj, with her parents. Most Anglo Indians are born with English/European names.

When my grand mother returned to England, it was natural that the rest of the family came back to live here too. Hence the reason my mum and dad returned with me as a babe in arms. I Was born in India. My Grandmother and Grandfather lived in an Anglo-Indian community, in India. The community were Christians who all spoke English. There were a number of British living in India during the British Raj.

My family and I have always worn westernised clothing, even when they lived in India....it is also the reason why I love shopping at M&S, John Lewis and Laura Ashley.



Ps Yes! My name is Frances.The same name as the american character in the sitcom Frances/Gidget back in th 60's and 70's which starred the wonderful actress Sally Field. :)
