    After just reading Foxxy's thread made me wonder........when you were little what job did you want to do when you got older? and what would be your dream job now.................

    when i was little i always wanted to work with horses my parents wanted me to go to uni (which i regret not doing now so Foxxy you must finish your degree!) i ended up working with horses......and now im a beauty therapist.....my dream job is a midwife!!

    i dont' actually know what my dream job now would be.

    when i was younger it was apache helicopter pilot, top gear journalist (but not presenter i'm too shy for that) and something/anything to do with sharks...but now i know that it's really hard to do any of those, even tho i'm a marine biologist and journalist with degrees and experience, and would still love to fly a helicopter but dyscalculia won't allow me to.

    I've run out of dream jobs. Being married is also stopping me doing alot of things i would love to.. like to work do arctic/antarctic research work, something marine bio based or move abroad.

    I think now, i would love to work in Pit Rivers in the weapons dept :D or the natural history museum in the watery beasts dept.

    Why did you leave pig farming Rona if you dont mind me asking?

    The farm I was working on closed down, I was heartbroken, all the other farms at the time kept pigs in crates or similar, the one I worked on didn't.
    Oh you've got me going now :( I loved every minute and miss my pigs almost as much as I would miss my dog :(

    I wanted to be an air hostess :) It seemed very glamorous to me when I went on our first abroad holiday when I was 7 yrs old :D

    My dream job now, would be to buy somewhere down West Wales that is big enough for my kids to live with us as adults (should they choose to) with outbuildings to do up or existing cottages and let those out to holiday makers. Room for a tennis court would be a bonus, seeing as I would have to leave my tennis friends behind :(

    I had it for a while - Trainee Riding Instructor but I had a bad fall and left leg wont work properly any more, its ok just doesnt work on horses that arent push-button so to speak and in order to qualify you need to be able to ride the challenging ones as well as the others. :( but since then I've done allsorts including selling encycolpias (spelling really crap) door to door and had a ball (mostly) :D

    I always wanted to be a zoo keeper from a very early age. My dream job now would be working at one of the Orangutan rehabilitation centres in Borneo.

    I have the perfect job now though.
