Top 10 careers

A few years ago I had the chance to blog about the Top 10 Careers I would like to do for a week. Full training would be given and obviously, you would be brilliant at it. I found it while I was tidying around the blog and share it again, with a few comments.

Pilot in the Red Arrows air acrobatic team

I would need help with the sickness for the first few sorties I’m sure but ….

Now – I think I would prefer to ride in Concorde if it every came back into service

Driver of a steam train

I have brothers but they didn’t live at home so I haven’t had that whole train experience. I was terrified of stations as a little girl but now I’ve mellowed & can see the romance in steam travel.

Now – put me on the Orient Express. I know how to enjoy luxury now

Travel again – an astronaut

I’d just like to get up there & look down to get a full picture of the beauty of this tiny planet we live on. If I was able to see the pollution we were causing, I’d come back & really give the powers that be ‘what for’.

Now – I’d still like to go to space but fear what I was now looking down on was getting more damaged by the day

Concert pianist

Now this has to do with the fact that I was supposed to be learning how to play the piano when I retired but have failed to do so, so far. I blame the blogging world for this but if I could be a virtuoso for a week, I’m sure it would spur me on to do it in real life. I’d be happy to be like Jools Holland as well!

Now – still not had any lessons or gone anywhere near that keyboard but it is still on my list


Those of you who follow my blog will know about my passion for West Side Story but any musical type show will do.

Now – my neighbour is going for tap lessons and I’m tempted to join her especially as she tells me there are ‘even old people there’

Forensic scientist

Yes, the whole CSI bit. Don’t mind which programme I’m in but I’d like some gore (may need help with the sickness again!!)

Now – still an avid fan of the mysteries of crime scenes

Delicatessen server

Odd I know but I just love the idea of putting delicious slices of meat, ham & cheese onto the scales then wrapping them in grease proof paper.

Now – I’m owning up to visiting far too many of these establishments 


I know she’s not real, but a character like Jessica Fletcher. That way I can combine writing as well. (She’s also nearer my age which is a hug bonus!)

Now – I have been asked to write a book about 100 Word Challenge. I could do with Jessica to help me

A gardener at Villandry.

Have a look at this & you’ll see why!

Now – still one of my favourite places in the world. I need a regular fix of this wonderous place

So what career desires do you harbour? Given the opportunity, what would your Top 10 careers be?
