  • Interests

    I love shopping which is also part of my job .
    I love television CSI – NCIS – The Good Wife.

    I also love entertaining and reading.

I’m a fake blonde from Manchester (North of England) with a penchant for leopard print ( I think this is due to my alter ego Bet Lynch from Coronation Street having a wardrobe full.) I live in London near Battersea Park .....which is an oasis of calm in the City. I love City life and especially London with all its history and amazing architecture and the people who live besides.

I'm a retail anorak which means I'm obsessed with any form of fashion retailing or general retailing.

I’ve got a great set of girlfriends who are all very strong women and a lovely life- they have all become strong due to their life and what they have been through and that's why we love each other.

I love this site but sadly I seem to on at the end of my day as your all just starting your day...

So I now seem to be staying up late.....but who cares I’ve made lots of new friends and the warmth and the strength I have found has been amazing .........

    • Hello UK Girl! Thank you very much for the welcome!  I lived in Tonbridge, Kent (not Tunbridge Wells) for a couple of years (1994-96) when my first marriage broke up.  Both my parents are British, which automatically makes me a British citizen, eventho’ I was born in Australia...and I’m very proud to be a British citizen! happy   I loved England, heart you can almost smell the history when walking down the street...having a castle in the town (photo is of Tonbridge Castle, a motte-and-bailey castle) that was first built in the 11th century was just AMAZING to me... poor Australia only has a 200yr history...of ‘white occupation’ anyway - the Aborigines have been here for some 50,000yrs!! I still have family in Kent, Nottingham, Norwich and Somerset, so still feel the pull for the ‘motherland‘.
