Clearly for me I'd be some insane cat rescuer.

Seriously though I think I'd be a writer, like Paulo Coelho style. But I have no talent for writing so that career was never going to take off.

Something that involved freedom and travel and the ability to contribute something meaningful would be nice.

A movie reviewer...I love watching movies, and I'm opinionated ....what better job could there be for me?! I could also be a restaurant critic, as I love eating, but I have no self control so would end the size of a house....

Archaeologist - I wanted to do this when I left school but my parents didn't have the money to send me to Sydney to do it

Probably not as exciting as I think it would be

Movie music composer.  Unfortunately, I have absolutely no talent for composition, only the ability to recreate someone else's.

So, my more realistic option is Remedial Massage.

Agree a travel reviewer would be awesome, I would get paid well enough that DH wouldn't have to work and my family would travel with me (at my discretion, and only when they are well behaved!)

I would love to be a vet, but at a clinic where animals only ever needed check ups and were never gravely ill or injured.

I'd love to work for Mythbusters!

This is maybe going to sound a bit w**ky, but I'd love nothing more than to be a lawyer for the Aboriginal Legal Service or Prisoner's Legal Service.

Failing that I'd absolutely love to be a High School teacher. I really find teens to be absolutely fascinating and lovely people.

Or a policy writer and/or researcher for government (any level). That would be an interesting job as well.
