I'm a unique, arty, fifty one year old individual girl who lives in jeans and loves anything Red or Turquoise.
I'm small and don't look my age so I rarely act it and believe in behaving as young as you feel.

I'm very VERY outgoing and confident - my friends would say I'm quietly confident, which I like the thought of more than being considered a loud person.

I'm always open to new ideas, new friends and new experiences. I enjoy diversity, so you don't have to think exactly like I do to be my friend. In fact I would feel less of an individual if you did. I think that respect of others of differing ideas, lifestyles, ages, etc is very important.

My own life is a strange mixture of very modern thinking while still holding on to a few old fashioned morals.

I'm very involved within the community and am a member of my Tenants Association Committee. I believe in fighting against injustice and during my lifetime I've helped get a couple of national laws changed.

I've been seeing Steve for 19 years now but we don't live together. I love the fact that I have never been married and from as young as I can remember I have known that I have never wanted children - I consider myself 'child free' not 'child repulsed'. I am Godmother to three - Jessica 24, Josephine 22, and Michael 18, and as a Christian I take my Godmothering duties seriously.

I used to work as a photographer and graphic artist until I developed Ulcerative Colitis. I had UC for 14 years until 1998, when I became one of the first people in the UK to have an ileo-anal pouch operation.

I have been studying British Sign Language at college one day a week for 8 years and am now taking a short break before continuing.

Nature, the countryside, the mountains, the coast, birds, flowers and walking. I like to watch various TV programmes and DVD's but I'm quite selective about what I watch. If there is nothing on then I turn the TV off and do something else.

I'm music obsessed and love just about any kind of music the world and history has to offer me. I love going to see bands and musicians play live and I enjoy singing.
