    "Enjoyment shared is enjoyment doubled "

    I'm an outgoing personality who loves keeping in contact with long standing friends, but also enjoys meeting new people and getting to know them.
    My grown up family are each raising families of their own now and we keep connected.
    My work was very important to me and I'm lucky to be able to continue it on a voluntary basis one day a week which I find very rewarding.
    The outdoor interests I love to pursue are Walking, (distances) Golf, and skiing. I'm a theatre addict who makes the most of living close to London. I also enjoy Opera, Concerts, and Art Exhibitions.
    I take the opportunity to travel when I can. Like many sixty- somethings, I have a "bucket list", but it's not a covering- continents list: it's based on personal tastes so it includes the Guggenheim in Bilbao, The Caravaggio trail in Malta, the Ba'ta Shoe Museum in Toronto.
    Life is great but I feel sure it would be enhanced by meeting someone who shares my interests and outlook.
