Sorry I've been absent!

Oh my gosh, guys! I feel so terrible!
My mind just hasn't been in the right place lately.
Even my reading has been weird.

Unfortunately I have caught that blasted Winter cold, so I feel very rough.
I had the day off work today 'cos I felt so ill I just couldn't drive.
I hate being ill as it lets me and everyone else down. I just can't focus and enjoy things as much. I've had this cold for 2 weeks now, sadly =(

Hopefully as soon as this cold goes, I can get back on track.
I have a lot of ideas of topics to talk about, so stay tuned for those!

Staring at this screen writing this has made me very dizzy, so I'm going to go and lie down now.
I hope all of you are OK, and if you are ill: plenty of rest and drink lots of water (tea is good too!).

Thanks for reading!

Agony Aunt

Good afternoon readers!

Today I am going to talk about how I used to be an agony aunt for friends, family, or even for people I didn't know.

I guess it mainly started because I am a good listener. Some people really like to talk about themselves; and that sounds bad, but it is true! Especially women. We sure do love a good chin-wag. 
So because people spoke, I let them say what they wanted to say. I never judged, I only gave my advice when I got asked to give it.

For example, if someone was like "Hey, Katie. I need some guy advice [enter situation] So what do you suggest I do". Because I got asked, I would help by giving what I would think is the best advice, and word it in a way that would be helpful. I try to put myself in their shoes, and pick the most sensible thing to do.

I am one of those people that likes to spread positivity whenever I can, however, I don't like to give hopeful advice and put them in good spirits when there can be a down side. 
I just think if we all were expecting the unexpected, then it wouldn't matter if it were good or bad news, because we didn't prepare for either.   
I know obviously it's nice to be hopeful at the same time, but if we hold those hopes too high, then when it doesn't go our way, we end up getting crushed.

Hello lovely bloggy people!
My name is Katie and welcome to my blog and its first post.

This just a welcome to let you know what's in store.

I do have a bookish blog where I do all my book related stuff, but I wanted to create a blog that was more personal.

This is where I'll post everyday stuff to do with my life, its challenges and topics and discussions I have in mind. 

This will in a way be like an internet diary. 

I love telling my story and what I've been up to, and this will be the perfect way!

I hope you have fun here. 

If you have any topics to discuss, then I'd definitely would be up for it.
Leave them in the comments below!

Speak soon & thanks for visiting!
