I've joined a couple of bloggers for a Friday Blog theme. This week the subject is: If I could change career.
In my case it's not a case of if, but when.
Cleaning lady at doctor's surgery and nursing homes, doing the till in a grocery store, ice cream cafe, conferences, christmas card sorting, mail man, news paper delivery, invoicing at a funeral parlour, office assistant, nurse assistant at nursing home for people with dementia.
That's what I was doing until I had my degree. When I finally had it I went from sales systems to GIS (Geographical systems) to supply chain (manufacturing and delivery) and then to mobile phones before I had my son. In Sweden you call a person constantly changing jobs a "hoppjerka", that's me.
My current job, I've had for over 4years now, which is the longest I have ever stayed in a job. That must be due to my boss, he is the most gorgeous man... ;)
But we have already started to think about our next move, so here comes the when I change career-part. A little over a year ago, we were really fed up with our life here and we started dreaming about a new challenge. We left the children with a friend over the weekend, where we had a look at this house. It is a 10bed hotel, which *to say the least* needed a little TLC.
We looked up the area, a really good area for tourism, 1h south of Edinburgh (ok, maybe 1h 15min..) and they were going to build a rail line just a couple of miles from the village, which would make it a commuting area Edinburgh.
So we jumped to the occasion and put an offer in. We were very excited!! To be completely sure of what we would let ourselves into we had a full structural survey. The survey unfortunately showed us that we would buy ourselves 500 sqm of wood worm, so we pulled out, but that is how we ended up in Edinburgh for a year.
I wonder when our next surge comes along. I would love to be in the property market, but it's not exactly the best of times to buy houses at the moment. I have also been thinking about starting up a relocation agency. All our moves has made me quite a wiz at looking up good houses, schools and local amenities.. :)
