Susie and Peter have two children. They seem wary of wine. Though one of them, out of the blue, did draw a card featuring a bottle of wine and the words, ‘I love your job!’
Susie has a remarkably poor sense of direction. Though she can track down a handbag shop like a bloodhound.
Peter is a Freeman of the City of London. The certificate, of which he is very proud, states he is a ‘Citizen and Vintner of London’.
Susie & Peter love entertaining. For some reason, people seem reticent to bring wine as a gift. Among the more exotic presents they’ve received are a Venus fly trap, a hairdryer – and a family pack of Nurofen.
Peter scored a goal at Craven Cottage in the Varsity football match in 1998, refereed by David Ellery. For the record, Oxford beat Cambridge 4-1 on the day and Peter’s goal was a looping header.
Susie’s ultimate kitchen utensil? The humble scissors. Go figure.
Many of Peter’s oldest friends claim his hair has never moved since they have known him. Happily, these days such hairstyles are all the rage, what with the popularity of The Lego Movie.
Susie’s first car was a red Seat Marbella with a black ‘go-faster’ stripe down the side.
At school, Peter was famed for his love of cheesy pop. New Kids on the Block, Vanilla Ice and Boney M featured prominently in his music collection at the time.
