I have recently returned to London after six years in Paris. I am presently writing two non fiction books at the same time, which is a little crazy and confusing, some might say bonkers, but surprisingly the one is informing the other. I live in West London and work in my garden studio.
I am looking for a kind, considerate, intelligent man (emphasis on all three adjectives) who wants to hang out with a creative, well educated and articulate woman. I love going to serious theatre (hate musicals with a passion), ballet and the opera. I will happily watch films in French or English, the more artsy the better. I go to lots of art exhibitions and spend an unhealthy amount of time in the Tate. I enjoy live music and still go to the odd festival, but muddy camping is starting to lose its appeal.
I have two adult daughters who don't live with me and are busy doing their own thing most of the time. This leaves me pretty free to do the above, as well as flaneuring my way around London - the streets have changed, not hugely, but enough to seem new again.
Apart from doing a lot of walking with a fitbit nagging on my wrist, I practice yoga and meditation. I used to be a really good tennis player, but my knees, my knees...
As you can imagine, I enjoy good cuisine and wine. I'd rather cook myself that pay a fortune for substandard fare. It would be nice to have someone to cook for, as exquisite dishes for one are rather too much to bother over most days.
I am spontaneous as well as incredibly well organised. I have a wicked and sarcastic sense of humour. So, if you'd like your life to be unpredictable and fun, get in touch, but don't tag me, message me unlocked messages, please!

Keeping it Healthy
A little curvy
I have spent a lifetime in the Big 4 accounting firms. I have retired as a partner and am writing my next two books. I have had six published previously.
I was privately educated and have three degrees: two BAs and an MPhil in Geography, English language and literature, and Creative writing respectively. I also have some professional qualifications.
The Welsh Academy had to be persuaded to change its rules so that I could be elected a member, so just Welsh enough then.
I practice meditation, so I guess this makes me spiritual. I also read Buddhist philosophy.
I waiver between being incredibly pleased with and extremely annoyed by Labour.
I have green eyes. This may or may not make me a witch. I have dark brown long wavy hair, which is, of course, gradually turning white and move wavy. I'm not kidding anyone by dyeing it.
