Dream Jobs?

I have been researching female role models, and reading about the appointment of Flt Lt Kirsty Moore to the Red Arrows team as the first women pilot to have achieved this position, and wondered, if you could have been anything, regardless of ability and education, what would your dream career have been?

Preseli Mags's Avatar My dream job was to be a writer which is what I do really. What I should have aimed for though, was 'a very highly paid writer'! Laughing If we're straying into fantasy I'd say F1 driver or Top Gear presenter (all those lovely cars...)

Re:
Preseli Mags's Avatar I thought of another couple of dream jobs while I was on the school run (on a bit of road that's so exciting they use it as the stage in a rally): 1. Land Rover test driver. 2. Chocolate taster for Thorntons.

Re:
still time to achieve either, Faith? You can become a writer anytime, and maybe a home birth for Em?

I like the idea of a racing driver Mags, bit of a petrol head myself.

I always wanted to be a vet, or a famous 3 day eventer. Now I have the freedom to chose to be anything I want, and retrain, and I havent a clue where my interests lie. Sods Law eh,

RE
Camilla's Avatar I am a bit of a petrol head too Zoe, love motor racing.

Mmm, Auctioneer, or Curator of Art Gallery, but then I always think I would have chosen Interior Designer maybe when younger, love design.

I have nursing skills but think that to be a Paramedic I would love to do, such a worthwhile profession of saving of lives.
