Heres me taking a break from the blood and guts of an 8 hour procedure!  ;D

I'm a guard on the trains at the minute, but just been offered a post as a 'fat controller' type in the not too distant future.

Also a football coach for Manchester City Academy. And no, I can't get you Barca tickets (current question when people find out).

Was a teacher before that, and also had my own car website that I sold earlier this year. Got no work pics though

Will you be coming to Glasgow with them?

I get paid to stand behind a desk and go on Facebook and this message board!

Nah, I'll go to the home game if I'm not working. Don't support them really so just like going to the games

Currently work on an Acute Mental Health Inpatient Service, my job is quite varied but I basically monitor systems to make sure that the team are complying with all clinical targets and nag them if we are not this on top of generally keeping the ward ticking over day to day. I do not have an office so I also get to spend the vast majority of my day with the patients keeping me company while I work which is the best part. Never a dull moment and never two days the same round here.

Although we are having lots of cut backs and I am deemed too expensive so I am looking for a job before they change my role to and cut my wages.

I'm a Veterinary Receptionist- wasn't clever enough to be a vet and I can't handle the gore enough to be a Vet Nurse! So I answer phones, book appointments, get moaned at by clients and admit + discharge pets from hospital. On the plus side do get to see lots of very cute animals all day long  ::) ;D
