A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows

28 July


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

I'm very outgoing and very confident - but I tend to be quietly confident.

I'm always open to new ideas, new friends and new experiences. I enjoy diversity, so you don't have to think in exactly the same way as 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 24 years now but we don't live together. I'm happy with 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 - as I do quite like other people's children, I consider myself 'child free' not 'child repulsed'. I am Godmother to three - Jessica 27, Josephine 25, and Michael 21, 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.


Nature, the countryside, the mountains, the coast, birds, flowers and walking. I rarely have the TV on and am quite selective about which shows I watch. I listen to the radio a lot and have recently discovered the joy of reading books and writing fiction.

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.

I'm also an ENTP and enjoy discussing mbti.
