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. :)

An English Accent

There are a lot of folk who can speak the English language, who all live in England, however not everyone has an English accent. ☺

I have an English accent, some people call it RP,  Received Pronunciation, it's the accent of Standard English and it used to be commonly used in mostly the Southern part of England. The English language is the language I was taught as a young child, by both of my parents. I was born in 1961. ☺

There are also regional accents around England. Depending upon where you grow up, you are likely to have a regional accent. This is still typically known as having an English accent. :)

Again, there is also a diifference in accents across the United Kingdom as a whole. You can often tell the difference between the English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish accents.

How can you speak English if you were born in a different country Miss SmileyRose?

It's probably to do with my English, European roots. My grandmother was named Dorothy Shreeves and my Grandfather was Joseph Samuels. :)
