What does everyone do?

I am currently working in the Financial Sector but after my 2 weeks holidays, I will be leaving there on 19 August 2016 after being made redundant and will begin a new adventure of a life long ambition of cooking and start a 2 year Professional Cookery course in September....

I used to work in I.T. and loved it. Then I had a child and gave it up. Career fell off of a cliff and I now run a Staff Restaurant the weekends.

I don't actually like cooking - at all.

I'm a chemist, working in the research labs of a Dutch paint company. It's FUN!

I work in a big publishing house, as an International Rights Assistant, mostly, and also as an International Transport Manager (basically, if it's foreign, it comes through me). I'm here for 18 years and sometimes the routine gets to me, but I still enjoy it most of the time.
