    I was a veterinary nurse, but im currently unemployed due to ill health.

    Im hoping to go back to uni next summer and do an animal management or animal welfare and behaviour degree. Ive already got the diploma, which is worthless.

    During the week I do a National Diploma in Animal Management at college, and when we start back in September I will be starting a work placement once a week in a dog groomers, which is what I am looking to do after I leave college :)

    Then on Saturdays I work in a big department shop as a sales assistant and on alternate Sundays I work as an Animal Care Assistant at our local RSPCA :)

    I'm a busy bee :D

    I work for a pensions company....nothing exciting but it pays the bills (which there are too many of :D) and I am also a full time mummy, which is the best job in the world!

    I've got a B&B which I hate. I also occasionally make dog coats which I sell for dog rescue.

    Yeah I didn't study after school just sort of picked it up - u should start again its so relaxing!

    Cool!! Bet that kept you fit. I'm sure you'll find working as a carer so rewarding :)

    That doesn't sound boring at all, sounds great!! Would love to do something like that.

    Thanks, yeah its a really enjoyable job and means I get to be at home with the pooch. You can access my website by clicking the fine animal art link below. Getting pics of them is soo difficult, especially at the beach when they are full of energy!! ;):D
