April 27: Over a year now

I’d planned to write a celebratory or at least anniversarial blog on April 19 – a whole year since my very first blog – but… I never got round to it. When I’ve left too much space inbetween the last blog and this one, it’s easiest to put in a few pix instead:

Refilling the beach with “galets”, or grey stones, for the summer.

This is not a cheap wine ad! It’s my photo, my very own glass on a beach we’ve found, so lovely I’m not going to mention its name…

Sunset season again: from the balcony a couple of days ago

My bike! I propped it up against this old shop so it could feature in a piece I’m writing

Ted, sunset, my shadow, balcony.


Neil going for a swim in Cap d’Ail. I wouldn’t have done it myself, not yet, but he made it look pretty tempting…

Of all the pictures I have taken over the past year, a couple of thousand in fact, this is the one I love the most: Joel in the tiny, airless, noisy studio we started out in, before we had gas or electricity, taking care of business by candlelight.


About Suellen Grealy

In 2011, a series of coincidences led my husband Joel, our cat Ted and me away from London, where we lived quite happily for 30 years, to Nice, where Joel grew up. While he and his sister ran their restaurant, I wrote a novel. Family being family, Joel and his sister no longer work together. Writing being writing, the novel lingers on... Meanwhile, we've found ways of living a completely different life from the one we had in London, including running our own restaurant together, 7 Villermont. The only constants are our Ted, our now-battered Peugeot, and each other. Everything else is a complete surprise
