BBC2 - My first job

I got my first job when I was 17, I left school early and went to work in the above Fishing Lodge.
I was breakfast helper, washing dishes, waitress at night and I lived in!!! When any of the room staff were off sick or they were short I helped here too!! Work was hard, I was young, pay was so so!!!! It was an experience ... I found that I could relate to customers and they relate back to me, so this is where I learnt people skills!!!

I just had a nosey on the web so see if I could find pics, I was surprised that I found some and that they have their own website, if you click here you can actually see the Website.
