    I wanted to be a 'spirit level bubble inserter' when I was at school...... Was not level headed enough.

    Excellent. You never know you may be able to do something along those lines voluntary - [ if you are not doing something already on a similar level ]

    i'd like to have been a member of those firms that build the 'megstructures' on TV.

    Like working on that giant french viaduct project or working on assembling the bits for the hadron collider thingy.


    there's loads of other stuff i'd like to be doing, but that would keep me busy for a couple of years before semi-retirement.

    There are dream jobs and there are reality jobs that you might "actually" do. I would like to be a rock star, a writer, an actor etc..

    More likely within a few years (if not still in IT) will probably be doing electrical work with my brother perhaps starting our own small business.

    I'm lucky that I'm a qualified Counsellor and Hypnotherapist specialising in PTSD and sports development, and am currently working on becoming a qualified Psychotherapist. So I guess if I wasnt workning in IT I'd be asking if you wanted fries with that!!
