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┬áSaturday 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 interesting posts and cute pictures. Your dedication is inspiring and I can only hope to have a blog of that calibre 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.

I deeply appreciate all the time you have spent reading my blog and getting involved.

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

Thanks ­čÖé

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 been upto 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.

Winston Words – This is how I know!

WP_000458

On Tuesday the Mother told you all about how I do some proper amazing stuff and it totally baffles her. But between you and me it’s pretty easy to tell whether or not the Mother is getting the hoover or my food out of the cupboard. She takes my bowl with her when she’s feeding me. As for getting a walk after she puts her uniform on, duh, it’s a uniform. It looks the same every time. She puts it on, I get a walk. Simples. And when it comes to having new toys or treats in the Mother’s shopping bag, she always tells me that she has them.

She always uses that silly baby voice she thinks I love so much. Really I just get all excited over the toys and let her think it’s because of ┬áher. But the mystery of how I know she’s in the street before I can see her, I really am psychic.

What about my furry friends? I bet you have some psychic powers!

How does he know?

The other day I put my work uniform on to get ready for work when Winston ran to his lead and stood staring at it until I put it on and took him out a walk. Whilst out on this strangely predicted walk I began to think, how does he know that when I put my work uniform on he is going to go a walk? And that’s not all he knows!

How does Winston know…

That when the shower stops I am going to get out the shower and he can lick my legs dry?

The difference between me going to the cupboard to get the hoover and going to get his food? When I go to get the hoover he freaks out but when I go to get his food he is super excited, and this is all before I’ve even opened the door!

To wait until I have locked the front door when I come in before jumping all over me and getting super excited that I’m home?

That I have bought a new toy or chew for him before I have even put the bag down never mind opened it?

That I am driving into the street? He is always at the window waiting for me when I draw up, how does he know?

I think Winston must be a wizard or some kind of mystical creature with magical powers! How does he know all these things?

Does your dog know things or do things that makes you think, ‘how does he know’?┬á
