Never mind the balance sheet...
But now we have got wind of one woman who has managed to straddle both ‘professions’ ably.
Helen Stafford, of Norfolk firm Sexty & Co, recently won a regional award for her bookkeeping skills, but has gained just as much notoriety for her extra-curricular activities.

‘I sometimes have to turn up at gigs wearing my business suit and then get changed into my stage gear,’ Helen admitted to local news website EDP24: ‘Someone once fell off their stool when I told them I was an accountant.’
