This morning, while I was eating toast, drying my hair and getting ready for work, I put Neighbours on.
In this particular episode, the tweens were trying to decide what career they wanted to do, and all of them were stuck for the answer.
I struck me, how incredibly lucky I was to know exactly what I wanted to do for my career, from about the age of 5.
And then it struck me even more, how incredibly lucky I am to actually be doing it now.
However, to say that I was always set on this career path is actually not strictly true though. When I was 10 I defected and decided I wanted to be a ballet-shoe maker, when I was 12 I had a month of thinking stockbrokering might be fun, until I got 10% in a maths exam and realised me and numbers are only friends when it comes to working out discounts in handbag sales.
Then, I had a very short period where I considered going into musical theatre.
No one laugh please!
It transpired I could actually sing higher than I could hear, thanks to diaphragm control, but trying to lipread instructions while dancing and doing jazz hands was something of a disaster!
And so after all this appalling unfaithfulness, I came straight back to where I always wanted to be.
Right where I am...
And the view's not that bad!
