I live in the middle of, and within driving distance of, some seriously beautifully mixed scenery. I am a single lady of 60years, like doing lots of social activities but am equally happy living alone. I do quite a bit of fly-fishing, cycling, walking the river (10mins away), like dining, dancing and giving supper evenings. I have a cat but she would go into kennels. I used to breed dogs years ago but have a cat now as I work full time. I love all animals.
My home is small but very capacious too, I am very proud of it and would equally treat other people's property with respect.
I am happy to exchange at most times of the year.
