    Has anyone gone back into education as a mature adult?

    I guess my firefighter training counts, 2 years in and almost at the stage of my final exams (theory and practical) Learning a trade would be great. I do labouring so have picked up a fair amount but would like to learn how to plaster, do electrics and plumbing.

    Matched Betting Question Getting back into MB

    I've literally come on to ask the same thing. Used to do matched betting and haven't since starting a job a couple of years ago. Would love to earn extra money again. I guess the old betting websites will remember me so can't do sign up offers again?

    How about this one? http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-vivobook-max-x441-14-laptop-red-10157233-pdt.html (Bit more than what I want to pay but is it worth it?)

    Laptop help

    Maybe £200? I don't want to spend too much, the kids don't look after it, lost count of the number of times they dropped the last one. I did wonder if a desktop one would be better (the can't drop it but it will have to be set up in the dining room as no space in the living room).

    Disney Florida

    So we are thinking about saving a bit longer and doing Disney in 2019/20. Probably look at going with just the four of us as I think going with 13 people would be quite stressful. Instead next year we are getting a villa in either Spain or Portugal.. villa is more expensive but flights loads...

    Disney Florida

    Yes it was. I'll have another look later. A lot of the cars say 5 people and only 1 case which would be no good if we had hire from the airport.

    Disney Florida

    I think we would have to go for direct flights. Last time we flew to America we had a connecting flight that we missed due to delays. Because there was so many of us in our group (Only 8 that time) they couldn't get us on a flight together till the next day, we had the most horrific time and...

    Disney Florida

    The villas we are looking at cost between £1350-1860 which isn't bad for 13 people in August! Can't get flight prices for a few months on the websites I have looked at.

I know some of you have been before so please can you give us your tips. We are looking at staying in a villa for 2 weeks. How many days do you recommend for Disney...

    Matched Betting Discussion [OT] Discussion about Matched Betting II {Beginners Guide in 1st Post}

    I've lost skybet now. I've given up again as I just don't have the time, I've done a few offers but not making enough to cover the PA fees. I am hoping that once we move (in a few years time) I can resign up as a new customer with new address/ip/bank details etc.

    Other Earning Opportunity Elections 2020 - Work as a Poll Clerk

    @Jon I am counting this Friday as we have a local election. I will miss the main election this year as we have a holiday booked.. rather annoying as its a good earner. I have said I am available to open the postal votes as that is done beforehand. I've not done that before so I may not get...
