WashingMatilda I had grand plans to join the police force after graduating as a nurse 20 years ago. Never did and it's one of my big regrets.
Apart from nightmare shifts from hell that you are currently enduring you poor bugger, do you generally enjoy your work?

On my job description it says
Crèche support worker
In general I do crèche for workshops we run, work in an administrative role, run morning tea for the school we are attached to once a fortnight, run a support group for parents that have children with special needs ( currently we have children that are austic, speech problems, CP)
I love my job. I get to cuddle lots of babies, play with play dough and get my glitter fix!!!
