  • Nothing! I’ve floated from job to job, no training required. Now I’m medically not well enough to work and slowly going nuts. There’s only so many home jobs to do

  • Pre-kids I was a psychiatric nurse and worked for over 20 years in the field. When the kids were a little older we started fostering.

  • I work in aged care but would eventually love to become a nurse, just a bit hard for me to study right now as i live in a small country town and the closest place to do it is 2 hours away 3 days a week and i’m not confident enough to do it by distance. Maybe one day :)

  • I used to do cleaning, not much but it got me out of the house mixing with other people and earning some extra money. Then arthritis got a hold and that was that

  • I’m still studying for my dream career. I can’t wait to do counselling/psychology but the study might turn me insane before I get there :P
    I did part time admin and have picked up some casual days since my new baby, which is an awesome easy job when the rest of life is hectic.

  • I do an admin job. Its good for me to socilaise with people and get out of the house.
    It is not an amazing career but I have made some great friends.

  • pre baby i was a hairdresser. i loved it and i still cut my family’s hair and mine!
