    School Holidays

    School hols are about to begin, and since I don't work school hols, I've got 6 weeks to kill! I'm going to be bored rigid. Does anyone else have the 6 weeks off, and what part time work would you recommed to keep me sane?

    actually, I was looking to make earn money! I have a disabled child, so earning extra money would be a bonus, and I already do some charity work!

    if you get 10,000 Expert Points total and 3,000 Expert Points in a month on Experts Exchange, which takes a fair amount of time, you get a free upgrade to a premium account which means you can ask unlimited questions, which is pretty handy.

    sign up at freelance websites such as elance online

    Re: School Holidays

    Try asking a local small retailer if he could use a hand. Just be warey of helping dodgy ones tho.

    Dont ask for much and I'm sure you'll be able to fill up the time

    I dont know if you're handy with html / php (website lol) but you could have a look for local buisnesses wanting a simple, one off website

    Hows that for starters? Less than 16 hrs (I think) a week should give ya a bit extra and they wont bother you - even better if the retailer or guy wanting a website is a mate. You're just helping a friend who happens to give ya a bit o cash for it lol

    [no, i am not implying you should try and circumvent the law before anyone asks ]

    Cheers
