I've a varied life in this wonderful city and enjoy a variety of pastimes including volleyball, tennis, ice skating (the rink 6/7 mins away), feeding the ducks and squirrels in the park and live music. I love travel and try to do so a few times a year - last year driving down France and across Spain whilst camping in between. Other interests include, fine red wine, ambitious ales & beers, film, history(specifically colonial & British) & fine dining. I finished my MA in Live Art 3 years ago and am back at college attempting opera - which is my current passion and lifts me and sometimes my day. I am also, officially a working artiste and vocalist. I enjoy alternative London as much as the proud bourgeois - alternative and goth scenes excite me as much as world class cuisine and cocktails in Chelsea. I am mostly truthful but always lie about my age, as a lady should: This year my son aged 20 has returned home from boarding and now also lives at the flat. After completing his A levels he is taking a year out before joining the marines and is training in the art of cocktails and service. He can be spotted now and then and is very lovely and polite.
