    Earn approx 7-12 ph depending on sales.
    Work 14 hrs over wkend.

    I was earning about £235 per week.
    And then they cut my hours.
    Now I'm on £125 per week
    And about a quarter of that is what I earn from working all day on a Sunday. It's ****.

    This week I have earnt far less because so far I've had three days off because of the snow. I'm going to have no money after Christmas!

    Work as a writer for a content provider.
    There's no fixed hourly rate- I get paid per word rather than per hour, but I am a very fast typer, meaning that I currently earn ~£15 per hour.
    I also get to pick how much work I accept, and I choose to accept ~£200pcm worth during term time, and ~£600pcm worth during holiday time. I think I could, in theory, work to earn ~£2000 per month, assuming that I'd be working full time.
