I was Plod for the last 11 years or so. Just made my stripes and then I moved to NZ. Now I am what is coined in NZ as a 'kitchen bitch'. A fully paid up (or not paid) daddy at home. Which is nice. I have 3 charges and I NEVER have a spare moment even when they are at school. Whist here I have been a self employed cleaner and worked for a while as a 'crime reduction operative' for the local council.

Kate was a nurse in the UK and still is in NZ but has moved over to a glowing career in palliative care, she does an awesome job and is an absolute star. She also earns more than I ever could in NZ in her senior nursing role. Again which is nice.
