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. :)

Not A Smiling Matter. Just Thinking About My Father

Just thinking out aloud. Those who have worked hard for all of their lives, or who receive a good pension because they made contributions, all deserve the best care that money can buy when they find themselves no longer able to care for themselves and they are put into a home.

However, I disagree that those who own their own homes, they have worked hard for all of their lives, that they should have to pay a large percentage from the sale of their homes and any saving they may have, in order to pay for the same care that someone who has never worked, or owned their own property, should have to pay.

Surely we should be encouraging people to go out and work, if only for their future. I have nothing against those who genuinely want to work, but you have to admit, there are a number out there who do nothing to help themselves into the work force, because they would rather not work. How ludicrous is it becoming?  What's the point? You may as well sell your homes and go around the world before you become too old to do so.

Help me out please someone, because I am trying to see the 'for' and 'against' going out to work for a living.   :(

Ps This does not include those folk who cannot work due to disabilities.
