  4. Snotta = Susie King, member of ‘club 40’, my sister, married to Ben, mum to Indianna and Sam, she either is very passionate about something, or couldn’t really care less
  5. Benno = Ben King, late 30s, Event and Marketing Director, married to Susie, dad to Indianna and Sam, mad cricket and Kangaroos fan. Skip
  6. Indi = Indianna King, 8, my gorgeous niece who knows her own mind
  7. Sam = Sam King, 6, my cheeky terror of a nephew

We shared a trip of a lifetime together – two weeks together in the Mother Country – Italia in July 2012.  Thanks to the trip’s valued sponsor, Mum & Dad. Best present to us ever x x

  2. Zorba is my husband Andrew John Petrelis, 40-something, IT Systems Administrator, dedicated Hawthorn AFL silver member, professional eater, Greek. Or Cypriot, Or Lebanese. Depends on who he is talking to and what mood he’s in.
  3. Marnie Paoliello, 40-something, Zorba’s little sister, qualified accountant, mum to triplet boys.
  4. Con Paoliello, 40-something, Marnie’s husband, partner in a large multinational accounting firm. Father to triplet boys. Italian.
