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 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 🙂


More Apologies

I can only apologise further for my adsensr, I promise I haven’t abandoned my cause!
Due to moving house we had no internet for a week, which was fine. But when the ‘activation’ date passed and their was still no internet, no TV and no phone I started to get really ticked off, a week later and I’m still waiting.
An engineer will be out tomorrow to check out – and hopefully fix – the problem so I have to have the blog back to normal by the end of the week.

Thanks for holding in there.

Winston is appreciative aswell

Apologies for the delay

Sorry for the delay on my RSPCA piece below. I had written it and scheduled it to automatically post on Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, WordPress failed me and to be honest I have been too busy to check until just now!!

Tomorrow look out for pictures of Winston’s first ever trip to Troon beach, a product review if a prize I won in a local competition and a link to our New Blogger Alert on Pet Bloggers United.

Busy, busy

❤ Love & Licks
