After leaving the dental practice after two years I ended up working in our local department store’s shoe department whilst I waited to interview for the Royal Naval Nursing Service… there were plenty of nips and tucks in this job…..
This series shares some of the jobs I have turned my hand to over that fifty years, and some were very odd. Not many have sat at a table between two teams of champion dairy cows, selling bull semen! Over the years I have accumulated a massive dossier of characters and events that now take centre stage in my short stories. If you have read my novel Just an Odd Job Girlyou will have met some of them but over the next twelve weeks I hope to bring you some of the others that inspired and stimulated my imagination.
Not all these posts appeared on Smorgasbord as some fantastic blogging friends allowed me to guest post. Where this is the case I will of course provide you with the links to their post.
