As promised we went for a walk yesterday through the local deer and came across these chaps. They were constantly pounding their antlers in the mud just shaking their heads from side to side. I presume they were trying to get the leather coating off so they'd be ready for a ruck or two as round the other side of the park were abour 100 more deer, mainly females!!
Todays blog prompt is:
When you were a child, what did you want to be/do when you 'grew up'? Why? Did it happen? If not, why not? Is it too late? Were there other unfulfilled goals?
Hmmm, not difficult, firstly I wanted to be an air hostess, for some reason by the time I was at High School I'd gone off that idea, probably a good job too as I'm not a keen flyer.
Then I wanted to be a vet, I needed to excel in the sciences and I would have gladly worked hard at them and gone through the years of hard training to obtain my goal!! Unfortunately the idea of shoving my arm up a cows backside didn't appeal quite so much so I regretfully knocked that idea into touch.
I did train as a Graphic Designer which I loved but at the time the best jobs were in the city and I didn't fancy commuting!!
I'm now a number cruncher, a book-keeper, I run my own business with Tony doing books for around 8 companies and we do okay!! But the truth is "It is just the MOST BORING job on the planet" and since I discovered the art of scrapping I'm afraid my job has now become 10 times more boring. I suppose my passion for doing an arty type career is creeping back out of me again, but it's not to be I'm afraid so I guess that is something I do regret.
