I'm happy spending time with good friends in pleasant/relaxed surroundings, sharing conversation, ideas, interests or discovering new ones & enjoy reading, listening to music (while singing my heart out) It would also be good to meet someone who enjoys just reading or playing cards for lazy cold w'ends indoors. One of my favourite pleasures is taking my baby girl to the beach.
I'm currently enjoying re-decorating my abode in a totally hands-on manner. I studied interior decorating & soft furnishings at TAFE for 12 months & have spent many hours trawling through the internet, studying decorating & how-to blogs. I have quite eclectic tastes. I'm having fun painting some of my dark furniture that was more suited for my previous Sydney lifestyle, recovering lampshades, and updating décor items to suit my new fresh & sunny lifestyle. So many ideas … so much to do …. so many challenges that leave me with a huge sense of pride & gratification.
My little Cavalier King Charles spaniel is my true love & constant companion. I'm currently planning a road trip to Victoria, with many stops along the way & no set date for leaving, stopping, or returning. We're just 'going with the flow'! I have many friends who want us to stay with them, but I also want to spend some nights camping so it's been fun collecting all the gear that we'll need for our trip. Although I've camped & 'motelled' around Oz several times, I've not done it without another human before so really looking forward to enjoying it with my baby girl. The floods & bush-fires set back our trip earlier this year … so I'm really looking forward to Spring & warm Southern weather, then off we go! :)
If you are a gentleman who wants to keep his own interests as well as share interests, are a good communicator, and are equally comfortable going to the occasional symphony concert (if we had them up here, or just off to Brisbane for the night), live show or theatre, then we'd have a good start to a friendship. It would also be nice if he enjoyed a bit of travelling, whether it be local drives, w'ends away, or trips further afield .. & even better if you enjoy riding a m'bike with a pillion. :)
I'm currently mainly interested in someone who wants a companion with whom to share outings, concerts, wandering along the beach with a pooch ... or just to share a coffee & a chat. Although I'm not too keen on anything permanent at this point of my life, who knows what could happen if you were someone special who was to whisk me off into the wide blue yonder - land, sea or sky! I believe that life is full of new & unexpected experiences & I've always clasped new opportunities with both hands. Sure, I've made a few mistakes by living my life this way, but I've also had some amazing experiences! I'd like to think that experience has taught me a few things though. :)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A milkshake or ice-cream while walking along the waters edge would be perfect for first meeting ... or even just walking my pooch along the foreshore.
However, a first date would be something casual like a picnic in the park by the beach ... while possibly listening to some jazz playing in the background & sun on our backs .... This sounds like a pretty decent first date for me ...
