CM Club....Babysitting charges

Hi, forgive me if this has been covered but how much do you think I should charge for babysitting? The children in question are 1 and 9yrs old and I know that neither of them will be in bed before I go home (it is normal for them to be in bed late), my normal minding fees are £2.50/hr or £3.00/hr for unsociable hours. However as I'm not going to be in my own home and putting my own family out as it were I was thinking of charging £7.00 per hour(£3.50 per child), Do you think this is too much/too little?.
