A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF
I am a 71 year old lady, living in the Llanharry area with my partner and our dog. I describe myself as ‘liking to call a spade a spade’ and prefer people to be the same with me too. I think I am very easy to get on with (although I think my partner may disagree) and like to have a chat. I enjoy watching television, especially documentaries. I like to go to garden centres and shopping. I had a stroke 10 years ago which has affected my mobility.
