Let me get this straight.

You grow small children?

;) ;) :lol:

That was the problem! I'd taught full-time for 15 years with 7-11 year olds and loved the job but after moving and having my own child somehow it was on my records that i was expert in teaching KS1 (under 7s) so when I went to any school on supply I got stuck with the tinies. It was awful. I'm not good with little kids....frighten them mostly... ask my daughter, I frighten her most of the time. Nowadays I can be as eccentric as I want, the plants don't run away - well not screaming anyway. The money's barely enough to get by but the stress level is zero, the commute to work is different every day and never more than 15 mins. And I like carnations :lol: don't grow any but have their smaller relatives, pinks, at home, my favourite being Doris.

Oooh, you have all interesting jobs... Me, I work in a newspaper kiosk, only it's not a kiosk 'cos I'm inside a train station which is almost abandoned since they delight in cutting work jobs and closed a lot of ticket offices, so basically I'm the only living thing inside this place.
Basically, I stay locked up in here for 12 hours a day except on Sundays and Mondays when I do only 5, 51/2 hours (and I can go home and do some laundry and other house-work needed at the moment :roll: so much for social life)

Chainsaws are fun! Especially when swinging around 50 foot up a tree. The only problem is dislocating a shoulder whilst up a tree - that's not so fun. Now I get to sit at a desk and rev a computer. Not nearly the same job satisfaction.

But somewhat less painful and life threatening? ;)
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

you missed the end bracket off the final quote, Dug.

Crys, are you allowed to read all the papers, and quietly fill in the crossword puzzles, to pass the time? :D

:D I can read the magazines, (newspapers no, they are depressing), but can't do the crosswords :lol:
Problem is, I don't like most of them, I only read those regarding films, the others bore me.

Del wrote:Can you at least SEE the trains Chrys? I love trains I does. 12 hours is a long long day hun.

Nope, I don't see them from where I am, I only see a part of the street on the other side, not much to look at, and as Dug said, it's a long day..

That's why when I'm without internet it's so annoying, and from time to time I look for funny shows on the internet to pass the time. Now I've seen everything I know :(
Luckily enough, I always have the forum to bring a smile on me face ^_^

Con, one day I'll get the courage (and the money) to visit all the places on my list, and that'll be your unlucky day :lol:
