In Her Own Words

About her

I have lived more than half my life in the the UK and am in many ways very British, but the American part is deep in my soul. The Brit part is disinclined to sing her own praises and the American part thinks it should hardly be necessary, so I am finding this rather difficult. If it didn't imply a tidiness I can't claim I would offer a series of bullet points. Here instead are a few sentences that seem like a good start:

I live on a narrowboat on the Oxford Canal without mains electricity, gas, water, sewage or telephone; It sounds more ascetic than it is, and though I enjoy the rigours of canal life, my boat is very comfortable. In the summer I am outside a lot. In the winter I heave the coal, feed the birds, slide in the mud and retreat to a book, Radio 4, or the wonders of the internet. I sometimes blog about my life on the canal, and that's a good way of finding out more about me,.

Before the boat my home was a rural Oxfordshire village where I raised my children.

I have run the London Marathon, which came as a great surprise to everyone who knew me, and, more than 10 years later, still seems improbable.

My mother tells me that I also ought to mention that my profile picture is recent (taken last June) and I haven't lied about my age. Since one should always do as one's mother says, consider it mentioned.

About her ideal match

My ideal match would be someone open minded and energetic, educated, serious, funny, and gentlemanly, who would enjoy a night at the theatre or a fine restaurant, but wouldn't whine about the mud on the canal, or grumble about hanging in the local pub.
