As a teenager I was a dresser for a day at London's Astoria theatre.
First job was in a florist's for just a few weeks then a long stretch of time doing administrative jobs for companies ranging from builder's merchants to market research to National Health Service (NHS).
My voluntary work has included a few hours serving in a Cats Protection shop and a sporadic 4 years at a London vineyard.
My interests and hobbies have dominated my life. As a child I was always drawing or making things with Plasticine. My creative hobbies have included painting (all mediums), drawing, modelling with clay, aromatherapy, Bach flower remedies, holistic medicine, keeping fit, yoga, collecting gemstones, growing things (I used to have an allotment), sewing by hand and machine, embroidery, cross-stitch, crochet, knitting, journalling, card making, writing poetry, reading, walking, philosophy, psychology, paganism, self improvement, writing blogs, mixed media, astrology, cats, herbs, cooking and eating food.
I hope to add many more things to the list over the coming years and go back and fill in those things I had forgotten about!
*I did the above painting in 2008 and have never done a watercolour landscape since.
What about you? Do you have an interesting life itinerary of the things you have done so far?
