In Her Own Words

About her

Never easy to decide what to say about yourself to make you sound attractive, appealing and worth making contact with it is it!

I think my friends are right when they describe me as active, lively, energetic, capable of compromise (sometimes), determined and a kiwi through and through. The latter despite having lived in the UK since late 1976 (but arrived too late in the year to enjoy the famous hot summer). Oh yes and there's the bit about really enjoying travel (Mongolia, Croatia and Shetland being thr new places I went in 2016; La Gomera the next new place ...bit less adventurous) and playing lots of sport but being determined to have cultural outings as well which I know have more time for. Great to have time to rediscover parts of Oxford & London and totally new areas and sights as well.

Working part time.... Hopefully just 2 days a week this year ... Should enable more time for that and perhaps even try doing nothing ... Or reading all those books I keep meaning to! To get around to doing some pay back stuff wouldn't go amiss either ... It's been a while since I did that

Have always worked in health and social care ... Currently on a project aimed at improving mental health services for people with a learning disability. Enjoy not managing a big team and budgets but it's hard to avoid the politics. Started my working life as an occupational therapist but moved into general management then commissioning more latterly. Rarely a dull moment and rarely the subject of public praise!

So why Times Encounters and why now. My long term partner died three years ago and it's time to move on. Life is full and enjoyable but it would be good to have someone to do things with (golf, theatre, tennis, museum and exhibition visits, walking/tramping/hiking) and potentially do nothing with ... Well wine, dine, cook or blob in front of tellie and/or to be challenged to think about things differently

About her ideal match

a mature man interested in travel and understanding different places and cultures; active, solvent, interested in a balanced range of activities (not just sport but walking, golf or tennis would help interspersed with meals out and more cerebral activities !) relaxed and comfortable; (but not arrogant) in a range of social situations. I'd probably respect someone who challenges me too - makes me think differently and take me out of my comfort zone

He must understand and respect the need for a balance between the need for companionship and independence

But he's got to be fun and make me laugh (even at myself!)
