Peter's Pages

Peter's Pages
This is the personal website of Peter Rootham-Smith (Peter is fine.) Welcome!

I drive a Skoda, and my favourite colour is blue. My interest include films, books, computer games, Go, and software.

I'm currently watching The Master's Sun, currently reading Perdido Street Station and Game of Thrones, currently playing Broken Sword 5 - the Serpent's Curse, Eschalon: Book III, and Blackguards.

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.

For a list of what's in this website see Index.
