Fun Monday= as a child what did you want to do when you grew up!!

As a child I only ever wanted to do one thing!!!!!!
Well I did dream of becoming a ballet dancer but I wasn't even allowed to go to ballet class, fat children don't dance!!! Adults could be so thoughtless back then. You never know it could have changed my life!!
I also wanted to ride but again that was something I never got to do until I was grown up with children of my own. I thought about being a hairdresser but that was not a serious career move, more a fleeting thought that it would be good to create a glamorous hair style!

The one constant thing from as far back as I can remember was I wanted to be a nurse and yes I did fulfil that ambition and here are a couple of old photos taken back when I was training.

I found one of these old uniforms only last week, it was at the bottom of a chest full of material.

The cape was very good at keeping you warm on cold winter days!

The hospital chefs made Christmas cakes for all the wards and I was lucky enough to have this picture published in the local Evening Post.

In Dani's dance recitals, there are plenty of large girls who dance, even well into their teens.

Wow! I absolutely hold nurses in high esteem! So much knowledge coupled with a caring attitude make nurses truly amazing.

I know most TV programs glorify the doctor, but I find shows like "Call the Midwife" so much more interesting. Nurses really get into the nitty gritty!

Wow! You look amazing! I would love to have had a nurse like you in hospital. And I could so wear that cape today!
