Blogtober14 – Dream job when you were little/ what is it now?

This month I’m taking part in #Blogtober14…. join in….

Day 2 Prompt – Dream job when you were little/ what is it now?

I’ve been thinking about this ever since the Blogtober14 topics were announced. I haven’t been able to come up with anything! I’ve even asked my Mam and she said that I never said what I wanted to do when I was a kid.

I was discussing this subject with my hubby over the weekend and he said that he had wanted to be a train driver when he was a kid. I think I might have had the same aspiration somehow since I loved watching the train run past our house. I also loved watching a Thomas The Tank!


All I can say, is that the career’s advisers at school were rubbish! Apparently I should be a vet. I guess it would partly be true since I like animals (dogs especially) but unfortunately I’m allergic to everything! Severe allergies to cats and horses!

By now my dream job would be to be in the world of F1! I keep thinking that the F1 media have a fantastic job! I’d like to be someone like Natalie Pinkham or Ted Kravitz. They both work for Sky Sports F1 and get to go to every race – hobnobbing with the F1 crowd. Oh it would be awesome!


I don’t think I would make a very good F1 driver though since my fitness is absolute crap! Whilst I possibly could have the diet of an F1 driver (steaks for breakfast anyone?!) I couldn’t do the training!

My actual job is not so glamorous – an accountant and tax adviser. But I do enjoy it! Actually I love my job!


How about you? What did you want to be when you were a kid? Have you ended up doing that?

    Trains are super cool so I understand that entirely.
    It’s great that you love your job – at the end of the day, most people’s dreams are to enjoy what they do! 🙂

      Not sure if you have Thomas The Tank over there but it was a big thing in the 80s when I was a kid. Loved it especially those two I’ve pictured.

      Yes I think I’m very lucky to have landed on my feet when it comes to jobs! It’s my first real job well.

    I love that hubby wanted to be a train driver. That’s so cute!

    I think you would make an excellent F1 driver. You know enough about the sport that with training I think you could win 🙂

    But loving your job is awesome, especially since accountants will always be needed!

      The whole story is even cuter! When he was little he had a girlfriend and he said to her that when the train went pass the house he’d toot the horn and she could put the tea on ready for him when he gets into the station!! (Oh wow I must be such a disappointment!!)

      Ahh thank you… I might know a lot from a spectator’s perspective but honestly know nothing about the insides of the cars…. telemetary? Can’t even spell it never mind know what it is!!

      Yeah I love my job! Mostly I love it because it’s fun! And I work with some great people! 😀

    I wanted to be a vet at one point but I dropped that idea when I realised part of the job involved putting animals down! Mostly I wanted to be a primary school teacher or an author. I actually almost applied to do teaching training at uni but changed to languages at the last minute. After graduation I was an English language assistant for 2 years and realised teaching was NOT for me – good job I ended up doing a different degree 😉

    I love the job I have now so it all worked out in the end. And with my blog I am kind of a writer.

      Ugh that’s one job I couldn’t do! Kids are brats! Your language degree has come in very useful I’d say!
