I originally posted this on Instagram & Facebook but it got such positive reactions that I thought I should include it here too. It’s very common on Flinders Island for people to have multiple roles and jobs, so I’m certainly not unusual in that regard. Small communities need the same tasks done as large ones, but there are fewer people to do them. Welcome to island life!
Well hello there!
I’m terrible at finding time to post on social media (huge apologies to my gorgeous makers & creators who aren’t promoted nearly as much as they deserve!) but maybe this post will help explain why…
Anyway, here’s me in some of my roles:
1. concrete truck driver for our business Furneaux Concrete (for which I’m also chief bookkeeper and bill payer)
2. teacher at the local school (TCE Business Studies in 2021, TCE Biology in 2022)
3. dental assistant for the visiting private dentist
I also have several volunteer roles that sometimes require me to drop everything for a couple of hours or a couple of days.
Somewhere in there I also love messing about with lino printing and leatherwork, and getting out into the wilderness.
