    Inspired by a comment from Jaqys in a diary, I wondered if you'd care to share:

    I had a paper round at 12 (hated that); then worked for a model agency (ha ha!) after school as a general dog's body, which I left at 14 to work as a shampoo girl at a hairdresser's (LOVED IT... but pay was bad...) so at 16 moved to the exciting world of selling tobacco in cigarette kiosks in supermarkets and woollies in several different towns... made a mint!

    Anyone else get sent up the chimneys as a child?

    I used to do a paper round 6 mornings a week for the princely sum of £1.80! It still amazes me that my DD gets £5.50 for a Saturday round that takes her less than an hour. Then I used to clean a lady's brass collection for £1 an hour - and her Son used to spend the whole time chatting me up, and helping :D
