I would say that my main job within Beith Trust is in Admin. As part of that team, I help to keep the various records up to date, check that any information is entered properly and that any databases are maintained regularly.
Ironically, I don’t do this on a Wednesday though. That is reserved for me taking part in my cooking class run by Jennifer Stamp. I used to make the joke that I could burn water before taking on this class and that my main recipe included a takeaway menu and a phone, but not anymore. Jen’s class has given me the confidence to try something new (for me at least) and how to adapt recipes to suit if we don’t have all the ingredients. So far, people seem to like what I have made and generally give constructive feedback if they don’t. And that is ok with me.
WHAT OTHER JOB WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IF NOT THE ONE YOU DO?
Probably Web Design. I did study this at college and achieved an HNC in this subject back in 2013. To be honest, I would have to study this stuff again just to refresh my memory since it has been a while since I last did it.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD GIVE YOUR 13 YEAR OLD SELF?
Try harder at school.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE DATE
Quite a few actually and these usually involve pals or girlfriends. My pal was a guy I had known since my school days and to cut a long story short, I lost contact with him for years. When we did meet up, it was as if we never lost contact. We’ve been pals now for over 40 years.
