In a few threads recently people have talked about being self employed, some only doing a few hours a week, or being able to have a work at home job that fits around the children.

Can I be nosey and ask what it is you do and get a bit of the action myself?

I agree with Little RE price mark, £20 at most. You might get slightly more at local craft markets.

Occupational health advisor. I phone people who are off work sick or struggling at work and make plans for them to return or review them until they are well enough to return.

Copywriting when the work comes my way. I also work for a baby and kids clothing company. They are looking for more people who want to earn commission/free clothing by holding parties.

I own a Birds of Prey Display team. I visit fairs and fetes, youth groups, basically anywhere that wants something different. I also take my team to parties, it makes a nice change from soft play for the kids and adults.
