While still covid-furloughed, in normal times, I'm the staff writer, marketing grunt, and occasional guide for a safari park.

Another lawyer here. I do freelance copyediting and proofreading on the side. It's way more fun than my day job, but the day job pays the bills!

Fascinating answers! 
Hello,  I'm new here! Just signed up to the 100 word competition! Very excited!
I've had a number of jobs,  from magazine editor to church administrator,  currently I'm part SAHM, and part time activities coordinator in a care home! My home days and work days end up being very similar!!
