    A lot of people on here talk about their work (apologies to anyone unemployed or on disability) I was wondering what everyone does for their job.
    I'll kick off: I've been a trained nurse since 1975, a trained children's nurse since 1979, and a health visitor since 1984 with a counselling diploma thrown in lol. My main areas of interest are nutrition (funny enough) behaviour problems in children and speech and language delay in under 5 year olds.

    All my working life (I'm 40 now!) I was a hairdresser until 3 years ago when I gave it all up and and went to work for the police!!
    Don't regret or miss hairdressing one little bit but I'm not sure I'll be in this job for as long as I was hairdressing!!
