How do I register as self employed?

I have been going round in circles on the HMRC website for the past hour and cannot find the sodding answer. Can't get through to a human on the phones either.

I am a nanny, I have just started doing ad-hoc bits on top of my two employed positions. I keep going to the "Register for taxes" but then it tells me not to if I am not a business. Am I technically a business or is do I have to sign up for self assessment only? I don't understand and I'm getting really frustrated with the stupid HMRC website which is not giving me any answers.

Have a read through the page for self employed that I wrote for ebayers ....

the link you need is in box 3

once you have a self assessment UTR you fill out the pages you need from the return

I'm not sure I've done it right now confused I called them up to clarify and was told that I only need to register for a self assessment? Is this right?
