Interaction with guests
I am not at home most of the day as I work long hours. You will only see me at night (or may be not as I travel to Paris and San Francisco very frequently. In that case the whole flat is yours!).
Other things to note
The area is quite residential and it's not a party place. It's nice and quiet. You will hear occasional sounds of flight take-offs from next door London City Airport.
Just be normal and enjoy your stay. I will go extraordinary lengths to help you as much as I can.
I do not host more than 1 person at a time. Only well-traveled liberal professional people - it's my home, so I reserve the right to be a little selective.
