- I worked in a private zoo - I spent the mornings painting old farm carts and the afternoons were spent in the ticket office and souvenir shop. The owner's son was my boyfriend at the time - but I am sure I got the job on merit!
- When I was a teenager I had a job picking strawberries. Talk about back breaking work!
- I was secretary to a very old fashioned Sir Lancelot Spratt (James Robertson Justice) character. He was a maxillo-facial surgeon; totally non-pc, but with a lovely old-fashioned sense of chivalry at times. He was great fun to work for and sometimes (on a quiet Friday afternoon) he would allow me to scrub-up to watch, and occasionally 'assist', in theatre. It wouldn't be allowed these days!
- I spent a year working for an ex-chairman of Grimsby Town Football Club. I mean wow, how exciting is that? Not very! I have only ever attended a couple of football matches and those were when my husband and I were first courting. As soon as I had reeled him in I gave up on pretending to like football, much to his relief!
I won't subject you to more photographs of bad hair-styles, don't worry!
I think that completes my ramble down that particular memory lane.
Was that cheering I heard?
