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. :)

Salisbury, Wiltshire Used To Be My Home Town :)

Aww my conversation with work colleagues this lunch time, brought back such happy memories of me spending a fortnight in the Salisbury, Wiltshire hospital. It was back in the late 60's/early 70's. I remember sobbing my heart out when I had to leave the hospital because the staff on the children's ward were so lovely to me. One nurse in particular was very kind to me. ☺

It was also the first time a guy, other than my father, ever told me he loved me.;)  Lol I was 7yrs old at the time, having my tonsils removed and this young boy kept holding my hand to reassure me. He looked after me during my entire stay at the hospital. ☺

I have such fond memories of living in Salisbury. My Father was in the RAF and he was based at RAF Old Sarum and Netherhaven. I attended the Fisherton Anger Primary School.  I also attended Saturday School at the Catholic Church. Father Barry used to pick me up every weekend. My school teacher was lovely, her name was Miss Strudwick. She encouraged all of my class mates to write me a little note, which they all put in a huge sack. It was delivered to me at the hospital. I remember reading every one of those notes. My teacher even sent me a copy of the book we had all been reading in class, "The Unicorn.":)

Aww where have all of the years gone? ☺
