Writing a blog is like writing a diary

Once you miss a couple of days it’s difficult pick up where you left off.

I have the utmost respect for all the other bloggers out there. I have been blogging on and off for nearly a year now. I say on and off because my life has taken a few turns this year, and all for the best. In the past 12 months my fiance and I moved in to our first flat together, got our first dog, I started a new job, graduated from college with an HND in Media and Communication and just recently I discovered that the new job I started (which was on a fixed term temp contract) is now a permanent contract and in my personal opinion this is the start of my career.
And the next 6 months are only going to get more hectic as Jack and I are due to be married on Saturday 19 April 2014. Having never really been much of a wedding person I didn’t realise how much time, money and planning went into organising a wedding. I now have a new found respect for people who choose planning nuptials as a career.

I have some great ideas and plans for thewinstonblog and I really want to see them all through, but whenever I think I can find some time to get it done I just can’t seem to find the motivation. I have been uploading some pictures on instagram and occasionally I tweet (or Winston does) but at the moment I am finding it difficult to keep up. My hours at work have been changed slightly and I do alot of overtime so I don’t have much of a routine at all just now and I think that’s why I’im having difficulty fitting the blog into my groove.
To all my blogger friends I want to say well done and hats off. Every single blog I have read has something unique and always manages to capture my interest, I really do applaud your time and effort that you put into your blogs and you always deliver with interesting posts and cute pictures. Your dedication in inspiring and I can only hope to have a blog of that caliber in the future…
But that’s when it will be, in the future. I hope that all my readers old and new will understand that I will post when I can and when I feel I have something worth saying, or something I think is worth reading. But do check out our instagram and our twitter as I am trying to post alot more on them.
Until I can figure out how go get on to the Facebook page on my phone posts on there will be pretty few and far between.

I deeply appreciate your patience and promise I will not let this blog die off!!

As you can tell, Winston is still very much living the high life. He is just loving his new stripey tee.

Hello, hello, hello

Hi everyone, apologies for our little disappearing act. Things have been a bit crazy here in sunny (actually horribly rainy) Scotland with work and all. We haven’t up to much these past few weeks hence why there hasn’t been alot of action on the blog. But fear not, I haven’t forgotten about you all and we will be back with a review and some other posts next week so tune in.

Remember you can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Sadly, I can’t get the links at the moment as I’m on my phone but check out any of our recent posts to catch the links at the bottom and there are links at the side of the blog.

I try to update them as much as possible.

Black & White Sunday – The Bonnie Banks

A few weeks ago the writer at SimplyShaye emailed me to let me know about a cool photo campaign that DogVacay are running to see what city has the most dog spirit. Now, obviously, I was quite excited at the idea of showing off Winston in the Scottish countryside and strutting his stuff as if he owns the joint. But as it turns out Dog Vacay is an American company and so it was more a U.S based campaign. Although, I have never been one to play by the rules all the time so I decided to mix it up and do a little post entitled ‘I Love My Country!’ Winston, his friend Taz, my friends Colby and Siobhan and myself all took a trip up to Loch Lomond and took alot of photos.

When I got home and started shuffling through them I wasn’t very impressed with the photos and realised I needed to step up the mark.

So I decided to let Winston tell you about the different places we love in our home county, Ayrshire.

Enjoy

Our Trip to Loch Lomond

i love my country

The Kay Park

We love going to the Kay Park because it is just a five minute walk from the house. A few years ago some silly boys burnt down this beautiful monument but this is how the Mother wants to remember it!

Barassie Beach

This is my favourite beach! We get out the car, The Mother lets me off the lead and BOOM… I’m off! Digging in the sand, rolling in the sad, kicking up the sand, everything in the sand!

Dean Castle Country Park

I am amazed by this place! They have pigs, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, donkeys and ducks. Real ones!

Eglinton Park

My favourite of everywhere I’ve ever been! The Mother brings me here almost every morning and even when it’s cold it’s brilliant. We go such long walks aswell and we still haven’t seen it all!

Check out DogVacay and maybe you can do your own I Love My City, or Country if your not from the states?

Winston’s Words – I am so excited!

Hey there efurryone.

So this week The Mother has taken time of work, a whole week of it. And she has promised me that we will do loads of cool things together, take loads of pretty pictures and share efurrything with all of you. I am so excited. Today we are just chillin’ so we are full of beans tomorrow to start our crazy adventures!

On Wednesday (if the weather keeps being good) we are going to Loch Lomond with The Mother’s friends Colby and her grumpy dog Taz – he doesn’t really play with me – and Siobhan. I am so excited! I don’t know what I’m doing the rest of the week but I can tell it is going to be awesome!

I am even more excited that this dog -
