I’ve been a stay at home mum for nearly 8 years.
Next year my twins will be in Kindy and I’m starting to think about what I want to do job wise.
I fell pregnant just after I graduated year 12 from high school and have been at home ever since.
I have no idea what I would like to do, no dreams or hobbies so I’m stuck trying to decide.
I would like to have a few qualifications to be able to choose from
I never thought about what I wanted to do when I left school due to being pregnant.
