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. :)

My Father Had A Career In The RAF. So Proud. Lest We Forget.











When I look at photographs such as the one (below), it always makes me feel so proud. My Father was a retired RAF personnel. He did his full service in the Royal Air Force before retiring in the 1980's. His last posting was RAF North Luffenham.

Growing up as a Scale-E Brat meant that I got to tour with my Father. Some of the countries we resided at were quite exotic.

I loved experiencing the different cultures whist we lived abroad. It was a fine way to grow up.

Some of the places my Father was based at, during his RAF career:

Bedford
Grimsby
Singapore
Penang, Mayasia
Netherhaven, Salisbury, Wiltshire
Old Sarum, Salisbury, Wiltshire
Episcopi, Cyprus
North Luffenham, Rutland
Leeming, North Yorkshire
Wyton, Cambridgeshire
North Luffenham, Rutland

RIP Dad. 3rd May 1932 - 28th March 2017

After my father retired from the Royal Air Force, he went to work for the Bank of England, London.
