In a business, it's usually the paperwork that is the housework element. Mine is no exception. Even though I'm a very small business, the BAS still has to be done, I have to check all the paperwork is up to date, and entered correctly. I'm lucky in that accounts stuff comes quite naturally to me. Not sure if this is a built-in thing, or if I've learned it over the years. I was very lucky, when I went for a job interview as a receptionist in 1985, the office manager saw something in me that I didn't know I had - and trained me in accounts and payroll. Considering my mathematics in school was deplorable, whereas my typing was excellent, she REALLY saw beyond my obvious skills.
From that first job, and through 4 more children, I've worked in all sorts of finance roles. Accounts payable & reconciliation is definitely my favourite, with purchasing following a close second. Maybe that's why I enjoy working with computers so much? I worked in one particular job for 7 years for a manufacturing company, and the 'computer guy' was a wonderful nerd. He fit the mould of the day - he was vegetarian (very rare back then), building his own house, long hair, beard, and really nerdy - totally awesome - and funny! Even back then, I would stick my nose in with questions, trying to understand this new stuff that was so weird. Lucky for me my typing was really good, he let me do data testing and all sorts of stuff, trying out programs etc., I never complained, it was so exciting. You have to remember, we're talking roughly 25 years ago, home computers were not a 'thing', no mobile phones, hah - no google!
