Hi Stevie.

 

Not sure about the money angle you would be looking for, BUT. If she is a school dinner lady she must have the patience of a saint, be able to work as part of a team, work by herself when needs must, have good interpersonal skills, can cook which entails timing, work under pressure, and loads more I can think of.

 

So with these attributes mate I imagine the good lady would be excellent at MANY different occupations matey, I really do think she could turn her hand to many different jobs mate and fair play to her.:yes:

 

Cheers Tony.

No sure about boxing but she loves a wrestle:wink:

 

I'd be very scared if I were you saying she's an old bird. Does she know you're on the computer all by yourself?:wink:

 

At 45, she's not old. She's probably got more skill in her little finger than most younger women. There is a trend to employ older people because of their tolerance, experience, fact that they've done most of their travelling and had their families, etc. She probably has more job options going for her than ever before.

 

What would she like to do?

If your OH still felt like cooking, a possibility would be working in an old people's home. Or maybe doing a commercial cooking course at a tafe (college). They have full time ones that go for 13 weeks. People who do those courses tend to be well regarded when it comes to getting work. Well, that used to be the case at least, six or seven years ago.
