This is the personal website of Peter Rootham-Smith (Peter is fine.) Welcome!
I drive a Kia, and my favourite colour is blue.
My interest include TV,
music, computer games, Go,
I'm currently watching Erased
and playing Torment: Tides of Numenera.
I'm married to Virginia who has made some cakes.
We like eating out. Virginia likes yoghurt and rhubarb,
I prefer peanut butter. We have a couple of lovely
cats, Tabitha and Amelia. We belong at
Girton Baptist Church.
There's a diary on this website of notable events,
assorted links, and how to contact me.
I like books. To look at a page in a book is like falling into a river -
a river which can bear one along for many a full stop and semi-colon.
By magic the letters and spaces become worlds and people which are as real
and familiar as the world containing what is read and the reader.
I like sampling the world's cuisine. Virginia and I dine out once a week
usually, often on a Friday as we both don't work that day. It ensures we get some quality
time together, and someone else does the cooking and washing up!
I like going to the cinema and seeing films.
This is still something magical to me - the lights go down,
the curtains draw apart, and another world appears.
