In Her Own Words

About her

I’m a Londoner, happy to be back in my home town following a couple of decades’ exile during which I raised my family, gave great parties, and kept house and dogs. Oh, and during those years I wrote a pile of books on interior decoration, the decorative arts and subjects like how to let go of possessions and organise your home (my advice was sound before you’d ever heard of Marie Kondo). Before that I was at various times on the staff of Vogue and Harpers and other magazines in London, and wrote freelance for most of the papers. And before even that, I wrote for the Glasgow Herald whilst ostensibly studying art at university in Scotland where I learnt to love whisky and reeling and staying up all night to watch the sun rise (that was the excuse anyway).

I’m looking for a youthful, man-shaped someone with whom to do mostly London-type things. A playful love of words and ability to spot a zeugma (hint: there's one in this profile) wouldn’t go amiss… That makes me sound terribly serious, but I like to laugh and dance and sing and do silly things with the best.

Some things I like, with the right person (in no particular order, and not to contradict what I’ve said elsewhere…):
Open country, wild swimming and boats
Art, architecture and views from tall buildings
Sourdough and all things fermented
Seaweed
Detective novels and telly
Sunshine and smiles, hand-holding and kindness
Gardens, all around the world
Radio 4
Saturday mornings in bed with good coffee and the papers
Sharing an umbrella in the rain
Flirting
Intelligent chat and talking nonsense, but comfortable silence is lovely too
Good food and wine in company
Live music
That’s plenty to be going on with…

Things I don't like:
Sarcasm
People who try to browbeat me with their assumptions, opinions or entitlement
Um... this list is short because I tend to like rather than dislike

About her ideal match

Isn't everyone looking for someone warm and appreciative? With life experience and a lively, intelligent interest in the world around us? The ability to listen and disagree amicably is good; absolute essentials are joy in life, good humour and kindness...

What Her Friends Say

Graham and Sarah said...

SkyBlue has been a good and loyal friend for many years. She's great fun, always joining in, makes us laugh, is full of life and she would be the perfect companion on a desert island. SkyBlue is a culture vulture but she is also really down to earth. We want her to find the right man because she is important to us and deserves the best. If you share some of her interests, that might be you!
