In Her Own Words

About her

Hello! The main profile picture was taken in May 2022, and all the other photos have been taken since June 2021. The man in the garden with me is my brother. I have lots of good friends, but have not had a "special relationship" for a long time, and now I'm concentrating properly on finding that elusive butterfly. I don't want to be single for the rest of my life, do you? but I would like someone who actually wants ME and not someone who thinks "you'll do"!
I am most at home in the countryside in muddy boots and I like to keep fit and go out walking most days. My cottage is on the borders of the Peak District and I enjoy all that it has to offer, but I am not a northerner. I moved to South Yorkshire in 1990 from London. My father was an RAF officer so I had an itinerant childhood and have relations all over the world. I speak good French, rusty German, basic Italian and an incomprehensible smattering of Polish, learned because my daughter in law is Polish, and I wanted to be able to chat to her relations at the Great Big Polish Wedding in 2014. I particularly love France and have always wanted to follow in Rick Stein's footsteps and float down the Canal du Midi cycling off to sample little restaurants on the banks en route. I just need the right chap to share this adventure with as Rick isn't avsilsble!
I am self-employed and my career is in the arts, but I rarely work now. My children both live near by and I have a beloved grandson who started at school in 2020. Apart from my family and walking, I love independent cinema, theatre, cooking for friends and family, writing, drawing and painting, reading, restaurants, music, social history, radio 4, country pubs, debate, languages, poetry, museums, country houses, and surprises. So who will be my plus one in 2022 and beyond?

About her ideal match

I hope my future partner will be well travelled, fit, funny, confident, enthusiastic, educated and socially at ease; a natural "ideas man" - with suggestions of things to do or try, who loves his independence and his family as much as I do mine, but also enjoys being with me, the outdoors and the Arts. He must be his own man and have good old friends that he would like me to meet. We would not be joined at the hip in everything we do, but spark off each other. My ideal partner would enjoy occasional large family get-togethers in the UK and abroad, as well as tramping the hills of the Peak District, or travelling away for holidays, weekends in the Lakes, the North Yorks moors, the Dales, or Cornwall...or anywhere! I like having friends to stay for weekends, so he must be sociable and not possessive or controlling, but interesting and interested. Sometimes it is enough to just be together too, quietly pottering in the garden. My guillty pleasure is Masterchef and an addiction to quizzes of all kinds, from the FT Links to ITV's The Chase! I hope he would understand the closeness I have to my grown up children and my grandson, and if my match were a devoted Dad/grandfather so much the better! I'm really looking forward to finding him.

What Her Friends Say

John said...

I'd recommend her to anybody. She's good looking, great company with a terrific sense of humour. She is a great lover of walking and of the theatre, in which she has worked professionally for a long time. She is a loyal friend and can make people laugh till their sides ache. When she needs to be, she is very level headed and shrewd and is a good planner. She has been a great friend to me as well as being my cousin and I much enjoy her company.
