I love doing things with my "near and dear", I get a kick out of thrifting for old stuff, from 1800-1960, playing board games, walking, trees and meeting for tea/coffee, I like bathing (especially with Lush). I also sing in a choir that mostly sings renaissance and I've just started dancing Lindy Hop.
