A FROM POSITIVE SPIN OFF FROM COVID 19 ~ Has been the CAREER PRFERENCES for Children in the UK (aged 4 - 16).  75% have changed their choice to Professions which helped others ~ such as Doctors - Nurses - Police etc. Some still cling to their *Pipe Dreams* to be Footballers - Pop Stars - Actors etc.  The POEM list the TEN most popular choices ~ in order of preference ~ OK !


Id like to be a DOCTOR - cos they make sick People well

I know Id have to study hard - but that Job would be swell !

When I leave School - Id love to train to be a NURSE

Cos everybody loves them and they help to STOP the CORVID CURSE !  

When I grow up - Id like to be - a PERSON in the PUBLIC EYE

And be very very famous - and have a STATUE when I die ! 

When I grow up and go to work - my occupation brighter

Saving People form the Flames - A bold & brave FIREFIGHTER !

Id like to be a FOOTBALLER - With a Wife - *Creme de la Creme*

And only work - one day a week - the best of Jobs - AMEN !

The bestest Job in all the WORLD - for any Girl or Boy

Is to be a FAMOUS POP STAR - and bring lots of people JOY ! 

I love all kind os Animals - so my best JOB to get

Is to open a Dispensary and be the LOCAL VET !

Everybody goes to School - so to be a useful Creature

Preparing Kids for the World & Work - I would be a TEACHER !

I always love to fantasise - to be my Alter Ego & Pretend

So Id like to be an ACTOR and star in Films & the West End 

To preserve Law & Order - so all can live in Peace

Despite the pressures of the JOB - Id like to join the POLICE !


Thanks for visit comments welcome - Love Angela & Brian 💛💛💛

      ANGELA HERE - GOOD SUNDAY UNCLE STEVE - VERY SUNNY IN ESSEX - People are already flocking to the coast ! Social distancing is more difficult on the beach and impossible n the sea ! WE have closed our Aquatherapy Pool but still have the Gym Classes because I only have SIX at a time and it is a large space ! Boris (with one eye on the Economy ) is thinking of reducing the distance to Three Feet. Because the Weather has been so good Brian & Smokey & I entertain in the Garden - Is that OK with FIDO ?

      Blessings & Joy for YOU & YOUR Pernickity Poodle !
      Spiritual Love ANGELA - BRIAN & SMOKEY CAT !

          GOOD MORNING FAY ~ Lovey day in Essex and We trust in Cornwall ! Real Beach weather ! WE hope soon that all the shops and cafes will be courteously open for service. The intersting thing is children are opting for jobs ~ with the emphasic on SERVICE & NOT SALARY ! These JOBS were 1. 2. 4. 7. 8. & 10. (60%) in the list ! Angela & I have always tried to put Meaning before Money ~ AMEN

          Blessings & Peace & Joy

            Yes indeed JOKER - Thanks for your comment - COVID 17 has highlighted the importance & significancce of MEDICAL & CARING Jobs and also Teachers - Firemen - Police - Vets & People who work in Shops & Food Distribution ! BRIAN & I have Nephews & Nieces in the 5+ age group - who ask us about our JOBS ! They never ask about Salary but are more interested in do we enjoy it and does it make a difference. Career Teachers work closely with Parents to ensure that each Child prepares for an Appropriate & Rewarding Profession. In the College we have a SPECIFIC NEEDS Department which caters for Students with Mental & Physical Dissabilities to prepare for the World of Work. They Love the Science Classes !

            Bessings & Peace to You & Yours
            Love Angela - Brian & Smokey !

            In my long life my 'want to be' not longer happens as life has been good to me and in spite of losing my loved one I am happy within myself and throughout my life it is what I always wanted to be, I wanted to be happy.
