It’s a Blogger’s World- Share Yours!

The phenomena of blogging had exploded onto our screens long before the coronavirus crisis.

They are a link to the outside world, to something beyond our own four walls… to people other than our immediate family, pets or reflections in the mirror!

Voyeurism, curiosity, escapism… whatever the reason behind their popularity, blogs are a huge part of everyday life and we know that many of readers run their own blogs. As such, if you think your musings could be interesting, useful or entertaining to other P-O readers, please do share!

Send us an introductory paragraph to your latest posts, along with a link to your blog, to and we will feature them here for all the world to see, well the English-speaking world linked to the region anyway!

Embracing change

By Gillian from

After a tumultuous few weeks and an action packed past year I now reflect on what I could have done differently.

It was fabulous Monday spring morning, which had banished the thoughts of the last two weeks of rain . So we set off on our favourite walk along the coastal path  from Plage de Racou to Collioure.

As there was absolutely no other activity , I can only assume that that the boys in blue were out to shake off the winter cobwebs.

Moon commune

By Loulou from

Well, this is my selfie today. I was having a little tete a tete with Mr Moon last week and had mama do a “shoot”…. Today is Ukrainian Easter and mama is making their bread, laced with raisins and to be served with a rich cheese called pashka.  But we didn’t have the ingredients for the cheese…sigh. Mama says it doesn’t bother her.
