Were I to appear on Pointless, when faced with the question “What do you do?” I would reply:
“I’m a loved-up parent of two (and a half) with a fondness for convertibles, clouds and Cambridge United. I do a lot of gardening, Heath Robinson DIY, and play Football Manager more than I ought. I enjoy travel, playing a bit of bass guitar (in the school band), and trying to meditate. I get involved in a lot of IT projects, though not usually involving my chickens.”
I’m not sure all of that would make the final cut but…
…then, when asked what I did for a living, I’d say:
“At other times I teach.”
Because I do, and have done (in between loads of other things), for over 20 years.
