    I haven't worked full time since having DS nearly 11 years ago, back then I was a pasty chef working for a contractor who provided lunches and functions for a large IBM site.

    I do have an evening cleaning job and DH is an operations manager for a catering company that provides school meals and a number of other sites, I have started working casually for a local special needs school that he looks after - just covering the chefs and assistants when they are off sick. It works for me as we couldn't keep up with our lifestyle (or rather the kids activities :rolleyes008:)if I worked every day.

    I'm a full time mum. I haven't worked outside the home since before Maisie was born. Last job I had I was a teaching assistant but we were called AWA's then.

    I am a Physical Therapist Assistant. As a PTA, I take over patient's rehab after they are eval'd by a physical therapist. In other words, they get paid the big bucks to do paper work, and I get paid less, to do the grunt work. But that's ok. I love my job. And I am the one who progresses the therapy and really gets to see the day by day improvement in the patient. I am currently working in our local medical center out-patient rehab department...until we close that is... The hospital is closing the out-patient rehab department (because the ortho group in town is opening THEIR own clinic..:mad: ) at which point I will be moving into a position within the hospital, doing acute care (hospital patients: joint replacement patients, accident victims, stroke patients, and all other sick and injured) or trasitional care patients (patients who would otherwise go to a nursing home).

    Beyond that, I am HollyJacksonBryce's Mommy...the job I love best!

    And I'm a medical transcriptionist who types up those big buck reports for the physical, occupational, and speech therapists at three different out patient clinics for our hospital among all sorts of other medical reports for all sorts of different things.

    Hey Krista without the PTAs no clinic can function properly and the PTAs get all the best treats from the patients too :D

    Thank you!!! Do you mind sending out that sentiment to a few PT's I know? There are a few that don't see any need in having us around...until they need something...:rolleyes008:

    And you're right, we do get some pretty awesome treats..:p015:

    I work at Manchester Airport for a large handling agent. I check the pre-allocated seating sent by our customer airlines, ensure the aircrafts iin the computer are the correct ones, open and close c/in, release seats and arrange meals and hotel in the event of a delay. I only work 2 days a week but trust me its enough
