    I've 3 jobs I do from home:

    I do freelance work for the BBC, mainly typing programme transcripts for Radio 4.
    I have an Ebay shop selling children's shoes - used to have a 'real' shop until a year ago, so just selling the remaining stock off.
    I'm a researcher for AQA
    Oh, and a mummy of 2 as well.

    Hi Kellie, yes, it's done from home, you can do whatever hours you want - weekend evenings are the busiest, you can earn decent money then. If you keep an eye on the website, they're quite often recruiting - they've done a huge recruitment drive this year. It's fun, flexible and you learn loads (I'm an expert on weird sexual practices thanks to AQA - all theoretical of course :D).

    Internet, books - whatever tools you have at your disposal! It seems really hard at first, but gets easier as you get more experienced. Give it a go!

    Hiya Guys,
    I work in the oil and gas field. Used to work offshore as an operations technician now in an office job monitoring pipelines and platforms. Love the job most days but you never quite know what the next day is going to bring!! And no, I don't get free petrol! I wish!

    Wicked RC! We might have some work for you down the road.....hubs is going to rebuild and customise my bike one day, and as I do not want to be a slave to chrome (would rather ride then polish!) I am going to have some things powder coated. :)
