About Me

I am a 50 year old woman, originally from the USA, but I've lived in the UK since 2002 and love it. I became a citizen of the UK back in 2011, so I now hold dual citizenship.

2014 has been a year of massive change for me. Within a six month period my marriage ended, my job changed (same place, but different job), I moved from my marital home to a flat, living alone for the first time, and a new cat (Bertie Wooster) appeared to adopt me. My head’s still spinning just a bit, but I think it will all be to the best once I’ve settled in.

For the first time in my life I’m living by myself, and have discovered that I love it. I absolutely adore having no one to answer to but myself. I’m sure the desire for a partner will resurface eventually, but right now I love the fact that all of my time belongs to me.

I live in a flat I love. It’s on the first floor of a building dating from 1584. I have a bay window with early Victorian stained glass. The building even has its own Wikipedia page!

My university degree was in Acting, and I did loads of acting and directing back when I lived in the USA. My last job before I moved to the UK was as the Artistic Director of a professional touring children’s theatre. I now work as a Projects Manager at a hospice, a job I love. I know it sounds odd, but the hospice is the cheeriest place I have ever worked – and the medical/nursing staff are just amazing.

My family is all back in the USA. I have my dad, two brothers and one sister, all younger than me. They are all married with children, and I love going back to catch up with all my nieces and nephews.

I am addicted to books. When I was moving into my flat in January I got rid of loads of books I no longer wanted, and I still have more books than can fit into my one bookcase. I am trying to decide whether to get rid of more books, or get another bookcase! What does not help with this addiction is the fact that I now live across the street from my favourite bookshop and my bay window looks directly across into it! [laugh] I have recently joined a writers’ group. I’ve had one meeting with them and I am looking forward to many more.

BOOKS I read most anything except science fiction. I particularly love history, biographies, and a bit of chick lit. Bill Bryson, Alison Weir, Tom Holland, Nora Roberts, Gail Eastwood, Jane Austen are among my favourite authors.

TV MAS*H, Inspector Montalbano, The Big Bang Theory, Catfish, Endeavour, Dr Who (the new ones), Sherlock, Elementary, Yes Minister, Firefly

MOVIES Micmacs, Be Kind – Rewind, Nurse Betty, Much Ado About Nothing, The Lives of Others, Moonrise Kingdom, Hairspray, 10 Things I Hate About You, Clueless, LA Story, Wag the Dog, In the Bleak Midwinter, State and Main, Star Trek, Hoosiers, The Artist, Despicable Me (& DM2), Rango

I also love fountain pens, my Filofaxes, stationery, cricket and rugby (I’m hoping to see a match or two when the Rugby World Cup comes to the UK in 2015). A couple of years ago I started to make jewellery, which I really enjoy. All of my supplies are still boxed up, however.

In the past two years my hair has been pink, purple, blue, green and yellow - so many more colours to try! [grin]

I love postcards of your favourite places or things, - I am happy with either single or multiview cards, and I'm a sucker for pictures of furry critters [laugh]. I prefer postcards to be sent naked, stamped, with a message from you about yourself, or what the image on the PC means to you.

LIKES Colour Nature Animals Museums/Art Galleries Ocean/Coast/Lighthouse Fun/inspirational sayings B&W vintage

DISLIKES Cartoons (hello kitty, etc) Horror/gore Religious

I look forward to hearing from you!
