I’ve had many names throughout the years. I was born on the 18th of October 1983 and my parents named me Katherine Louise. That was soon shortened to Katie and then to Kate. My Mum will sometimes call me Katherine and Hayley calls me Katie but to most people I am Kate.
In nursery I was nicknamed ‘bossy boots’, which quite clearly speaks for itself. I was in charge of the scooter…
I don’t think I was given any sort of nickname throughout Primary school or Middle school but in Secondary school I was very kindly given the nickname of ‘Pingu’.
‘Aww that’s cute’ I hear you say.
‘A cuddly little penguin’
Yes I was named after a penguin because I’m short and I waddled when I walked, more insulting than cute!
These days I tend to hand out nicknames instead of collecting them for myself. Thus far, sometimes with the help of friends, I have renamed Sam; Salamander, Gayle is Baby Gayle and Hayley is Nayley Girl. To be honest the Nayley Girl was courtesy of my brother but he won’t read this so I’m taking it!
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
Be happy and keep smiling 😀
