What Career Did You Have Planned As A Child?

As a child if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I always said “A flute player in an orchestra”.

Did I have a flute? No

Could I play a Flute? No

In fairness to my parents I was given everything I ever wanted, so I obviously never asked for a flute or lessons (in fact I distinctly remember not asking for them!).

Maybe I just assumed that one day I would pick up a flute rock up at an orchestra door and bet the star of the show, somehow knowing it all off by heart ?
The closest I have come to realising wing a flute player in an orchestra is watching the last night of the proms and owning a James Gallway Cassette (yes I’m old, I was an 80’s child!)

    I was hooked on playing ‘Teachers’ with my Sis. I now teach English, she teaches Science!

    LOL – love how in your head you were a flute aficionado! I think if I gave me kids a cassette tape they would not have a clue what it was.
