DH has an interview for a job on Wednesday afternoon, nothing fancy - working for the TV Licencing people knocking on the doors of those who haven't got/haven't paid - one of those almost 'dead cert' jobs where if you get past the telephone interview and are willing to put up with the cr*p that comes with the job then it's yours.

Anyhow, that's getting off track (what's new for me LOL). The job hours are 2-9pm which would mean that I would open the door for me to get a part time job in the mornings, to help cover the bills. I don't have any 'qualifications', but don't much fancy scrubbing toilets every morning either - so any suggestions as to what I could do?

I'm really not that fussy (ie would 'clean' if I had to) as long as it would be mornings only (and perhaps Saturdays too if nessecary). I asked in Morrisons today, but of course it's the start of the summer holidays and all the students have filled up the part time jobs - so she suggested coming back in a few weeks (well DH could potentially start his new job in a weeks time!).

What could I do?

mothershelp as u have kids already thats what i do and take my dd with me and its only mornings

I wouldn't need to take the kids with me - as DH would be at home (not sure if I mentioned that).

The reason I'd be looking for 'morning' work is so that we wouldn't have to pay for nursery for DS2 (DS1 starts school in September), so childcare isn't an issue.

Nice ideas so far (well apart from ironing - bad enough at my own without doing other people's LOL). Keep 'em coming - I just want some insperation as to what sort of things I could look for when/if DH gets offered this job on wednesday.

Post Woman too early -

Blimey I'm starting to sound fussy aren't I LOL - but then DH has said I don't have to work, but I want to, so I can 'help' - so it would be nice to do something I 'semi' enjoy (hence cleaning toilets and ironing are probably out LOL)

do you have any interests/hobbys that could be incorporated into a job, eg gardening (working at a garden centre) or skills that you could set up your own company making something from home, that sort of thing

Chicago - we're also going to be running our business from home as it is, not sure I could cope with another one LOL.

Hobbies - music, interests - well at the moment I'm torn between 2 directions when the boys are both at school full time (a few years to go yet) - one direction is full time on the business, the other is I'd love to train to be a social worker..

I sell Usborne books and you can take your children with you whilst you work

Feel free to cat me and I can send you some info

I'll just add..I am restricted as I have two children one with Special Needs, they are starting School in Sep but I still need to be there for before and after School and Holidays

I don't desperately need to work but wanted something to do.

I have only just started Usborne and as I love books I really am enjoying it.

You work when you want to!

Also the starter pack for August is Brilliant, you get double the amount of books, is really worth it even if you decide not to sell them

I did Avon for 2yrs - and would prefer do something where I'm actually paid rather me having to send them money and keep my 'share' IYKWIM. Ran myself into trouble with the "money management" side of things - and would prefer not to risk it again.
