I started this blog with the intention of sharing our travels with our black Labrador Mia. We love to visit places in the UK whether it’s for a day visit, weekend or longer.
Well, there’s a well known saying about best intentions and this is where I am guilty.
I haven’t written on this blog in over 3 months! Now, don’t get me wrong, we have still be doing lots of things with Mia and if you follow our facebook page you may even be aware of a few of them. But I have fallen out of the habit of writing a blog.
I don’t do this for the fame, definitely not for the money (trust me, it costs me more out of my own pocket to do). I started doing it because I wanted to, plain and simple. We have had some amazing adventures over the last few years of having Mia in our life and I just wanted to share some with all you amazing people. I wanted to let the places that we visit know that we had been there, had a brilliant time, will return and want to shout about it and let everyone else know so they can visit.
It all started off well, our blog about our visit to Aberdeenshire was very well received, reaching more people that I could have ever imagined. Local walks got peoples attention, letting them know there was more on their doorstep.
I have no excuse for not writing so much. Well, I do, life gets in the way. I hate using that as an excuse, but I find it hard to pull aside the 15-30 minutes it takes to put a blog post together that I am happy with. I have a 9-5 job, I have a house to clean, meals to make, and dog to walk (obviously!) and most importantly I would rather spend the time sat with my husband daughter and the lovely Mia than sat upstairs in the office typing and selecting photos. Christmas was a mad period, especially the run up to it. I just find it quicker to pop onto FB, Twitter or Instagram. Quick post, move on and peel the spuds. But I get the most enjoyment out of writing on here, so I pledge to try and do it more often, at least once a week.
We don’t do exciting blog worthy things everyday, but our New Year resolution is to try and do something at least once a week
So, if you have missed us, we are back. If you hadn’t noticed we had been absent, then forget about what I have just typed and we will carry on as if nothing has ever happened!! Thanks
