In Her Own Words

About her

I am fun to be with and love to dance and sing but can be serious too. I am a good listener and fiercely loyal . My favourite pastime is sharing a meal with family or friends and the good conversation that goes with it. I love nature and though I enjoy travel, warm sunshine and beaches, I also appreciate my immediate surroundings and my local community.

I'd like to have fun and maybe pick up a new interest. I love to be near water in all its forms, specially by the sea. I would enjoy sailing or just being on a boat in good company.

For many years I taught Scottish Country Dancing to children and their families and organised and called ceilidhs. I admire musicians and artists in general and like to work alongside them. I currently enjoy Petanque and table tennis.

I have three daughters.My family has always been and still is very important to me though now Australia has claimed two of my daughters and my two small grandchildren are there. I have been there several times over the past 12 years or so. Still rooted in Scotland though! I have a long lasting connection with Spain and that is a big influence on my cooking and gives me a general Latin feel about things. That and Celtic connections as I have Irish blood. My photos are all recent. The profile picture was taken In September 2017. I appreciate seeing up to date pictures on other profiles too!
I think that life is for living and enjoying and also for getting through the hard times. Through thick and thin, I think a sense of humour is key, laughter being the best tonic of all.

I tend to be outspoken when it comes to matters of injustice. I empathise with the underprivileged.So my retirement is not mainly about trips and indulgence; more about simplicity and real relationships. I think that compassion, and genuine friendship, are the important things.

About her ideal match

Someone thoughtful who can listen. Laughing together is vital. I'd like to share meals, meet with friends, go for walks, listen to music and hopefully make music. Maybe dance...maybe share a trip to Australia?

Someone who cares about the environment and likes animals. (Love me, love my dog...a black Labrador). Someone who can care for me, too; I am caring but it has to be two-way. I need to be considered an equal (or maybe, rather, complementary). I am feminine but independent and don't like to be patronised. I can think for myself...even if I sometimes overlook the obvious!


Can I add..I am not interested in a "fling"!
