Formerly a survivor (re-started life x3 in just over a decade thanks to circumstances predominantly beyond my control). Now back in England trying (a) not to wish I were still in France, and (b) to get the most out of life despite having a terminal illness.
This blog focuses mainly on the period I spent living in Nice thanks to an unexpected opportunity. It is all my own work – except, of course, where otherwise indicated. I explore the arts, landscape and life in general in search of the interesting, unusual and life-enhancing – sometimes successfully. While I am as irritated by things as anybody, I rarely rant (lacking the requisite self-righteousness and mostly finding rage counter-productive). So when I do, it’s serious. Overall, I love humour more. And France – it was very good to me; I am eternally grateful. Thank you for reading, and all the best.
