Who is Sophie?

I was born in London, England and at the time of writing this in 2017 I am 64 years of age . I have been living in Central rural France since 2005. On the whole, I am happy with my life but with the exception of a couple of regrets:- my late acceptance of who I am and the fact that I am still terrified of revealing Sophie to my daughter.

I have enjoyed and drunk far too much alcohol during my life, but I can think of worse things in life to have done. I am a Scorpio, if that’s of interest to anyone, and born on the cusp of Sagittarius. But I have always believed that I am a Scorpio for what that is worth. I studied art and design in the 70’s and worked in the design industry and had my own business for most of my career until 2009. I got married far too young, and indulged in a second marriage having a child from each marriage. I made the choice to try a third relationship. That one eventually failed after 11 years.

I have been single since October 2012. It’s now February 2017 and at the time of writing this I am quite content with my life. In spite of having the least amount of money in my life and being on my own. I have had to re-evaluate everything about my life which has been good for me on many levels.

This site/blog is an account of things I can recall from an early age to present day. An attempt to do something therapeutic for myself and make others aware that it’s not wrong to be yourself against popular opinion and stigma, along with social stereotyping and all the other things designed to keep people in their place as good members of an organised society. I don’t apologise for my hint of sarcasm, it’s one of the things that makes me feel alive. I hope you find this blog interesting and perhaps find it useful. You can read a more detailed account of my life and experiences here if you wish to know more about my journey

Love and hugs to you all

Sophie xx

Wouldn’t it be a better world if people were simply just more caring about each other?
