Do you have a 2nd job? What is it and how did you find it?

I posted this in employment issues but didn't get any response so thought I'd try here too!

I currently work 27.5 hours across 5 days. The hours fit in pretty well with school (I'm a lone parent to one DS) and the pay is OK but I hate the job and I'm desperate to leave.

I've got an interview for another job which looks perfect...except it's only 20 hours a week (4 hours a day across 5 days) So, while the hours are great for school, the pay is going to be considerably less. However, I really like the look of the job, and I really want to leave my current job so I'm considering taking some kind of second job....but I don't know what, or how to go about it!

Ideally, I'd like something that I can do from home in the evenings. I'd like to keep after school time fairly free so that I can take DS to his extra curricular activities (and avoid any childcare costs) DS is also going to start spending one night a week with his dad, so that'll give me one evening free to go out to work if needed.

Any ideas? I have no particular skills! I did do some copy-editing/proofreading courses a while ago but little experience and suspect that there are millions of freelance copyeditors/proofreaders out there.
