Hey, I’m Barbara!

London, United Kingdom · Member since March 2012

Short, friendly, interesting, humorous, approachable, hard-working, enjoy a laugh.

I am self-employed (psychologist, counsellor, coach, consultant, portfolio entrepreneur, all round chief squirrel), work at home a lot in my loft (not always though). I got married to Hiram in February. I think we are getting divorced!!

I enjoy meeting new people and have had visitors now for 4 years. I am from the UK, but lived in NZ for 26 years, and a short spell in Australia, but it was a bit hot and humid for me! I am recently married (Feb 2013) to a Kenyan who lived in Italy for 8 years. I am a book fiend and my house has stacks of them, as well as my kindle! Although most are for my work. I just started book collecting too. So now I have an excuse for the obsessive collecting!

I enjoy a wide range of music, and am learning to play the violin! Next will be keyboard. I recently did a film-making course and looking forward to doing something with that! I love learning.

My mottos are:
Seize the day;
Seek the wisdom of the ages, but look at the world through the eyes of a child;
Think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures;
Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will

A lot I know! That's me, lots going on!
