Long Term Relationship
[Last logged on : quite some time ago]
I Love To Love..........
Hey Ho, here we go - Finding someone to be the sunshine when you get up, and the warmth when you go to sleep - Corny? Maybe, but isn't that what most of us hope for. That person who is the other half.. who has your back, as you have theirs; who respects you for who you are, and with whom you can laugh or cry. I would love to be that person for my other half - could that be you?

Would like children?
5' 2'' (1.57m)
Homo Sapiens - of course!
Wide variety of nursing experiences over my adult working years, plus a few other occupations along the way. Currently planning retirement in early 2018.
State school education followed by College then into training to be a Nurse - not quite led by Florence Nightingale, although it does seem that long ago now.
Interesting paternal background - more of that later.
I have no time for religion in the formal sense. I do believe there is something we don't truly understand that we refer to as spiritual.
Definitely left of Centre although never a fan of Tony Blair.
Shorter than I was 40 years ago - how did that happen? Unable to get rid of that extra weight, no matter how badly I treat it, but not hugely obese.
As a somewhat lazy Brit, with the safety net of English being a globally acceptable language, I only truly speak English and Babytalk! I understand a handful of words in one or two European languages, and can usually understand Americans.
Musical Instruments played:
Sadly the only musical instrument I ever became accomplished on was the triangle - although I was at primary school during this phase of my life. I have learnt to play the kazu, but not to any particular tune.
I absolutely love any music that sends tingles down my spine or takes my breath away. Favourites are '60's and all the Oldies that are still touring.
Sports and exercise:
The only sport I play is the game of life, and that can be very challenging. I enjoy watching Rugby Union, particularly the big tournaments.
Interests and activities:
Apart from finding some R+R, photography - much to learn, writing/poetry, theatre, cinema, crosswords/Sudoku/quizzes, Being with friends/family.
Animals and Pets:
Many during my childhood years, and a beloved springer spaniel - a member of the family during my children's childhood
Newspapers and magazines:
Hello, The Oldie, Kent Life, Daily Mail (despite my left of centre leanings)
Rachel Joyce; Marian Keyes; Jonas Johansen; Ken Follett, Wilbur Smith, are some of my favourite authors, so anything written by them that I had not already read
Film choice would be something with a human interest story, a few tears perhaps with a dash of romance.
Enjoyable evening out:
Most likely I would choose theatre or cinema, with time to chat over a pre show meal.
Food choices very much depend on the restaurant and the reason for being there. Roast beef and Yorkshire would be fabulous in a country pub on a Sunday afternoon. Pre show is best kept light (for me) - fish maybe.
Circumstances allowing, my preferred holiday would be a cruise, taking in the Fjords and Northern Lights
In another life:
If I could be an accomplished musician and/or writer I would feel complete.
I have no idea how my friends would describe me. From my perspective I consider myself to be a confident, caring and independent person, who doesn't suffer fools gladly. I am serious when appropriate but prefer to see life from a light hearted view-point.
