I am a busy 53 year old lone parent with 2 beautiful daughters aged 20 & 12. From East London with Russian & Polish Jewish heritage. I work in a local Primary School with children with speech & language difficulties. I have a Youth Work background & am a strong advocate for the rights of children & young people. I have 2 young playful cats. Sounds cliched but true, I love meeting and talking with people, eating good food especially a local curry, reading, music, dancing, TV, cinema, going to the pub, being with friends and laughing. I haven't done much travelling in the past few years other than family visits to New York & a couple of holidays in the Mediterranean, but I have previously backpacked throughout Europe & 'Island hopped' around Greece for 6 months and have been to North & west Africa & parts of the Caribbean. My main ambition is to travel more in the future, (once the kids are gone). I am a positive & passionate person with a good sense of humour. As a host I would want you to feel at home, be comfortable & relaxed with us. I will try & answer any questions you may have and am willing to share my knowledge of the local area & it's rich history & help you to have a great stay in London.
