Oh dear I feel awful. I spent the whole night coughing. Missed out on my breakfast prolific as I was out of bed late and there were only 20 places. I've been crook since boxing day. I intend to write some sort of business plan for the 2018/2019 financial year. At the moment I think that I can make around £200 per month doing what I'm doing but I would like to get that up to £650. I know I can start ebay again. It has been profitable in the past but I sickened myself of it by doing it 7 days a week. If I just put on a few items per month it will add to my total. Got to go out to Drs and Post Office but it's still looking distinctly white outside so I'll leave it as long as I can.

Well not a financially profitable day. Living on cough medicine at the moment. I have made a list of more mystery shopping companies to sign up to. I want to explore them one by one so I don't get mixed up. Got an email from utest about a new project. It is tempting but it bored me to tears and I'm looking for pleasant ways to make money. I'm considering starting a crochet blog. I've thought about it before but not really considered it as a money making venture. I need to do more research as I don't want to put money into it until I'm ready. There are free sites which seem great for hobby blogging but if I am trying to make money I'm better off with my own domain. So I suppose the day hasn't been completely wasted.

Well I am a right numpty! I popped out to post my Royal mail letter and managed to lose my house keys. Got a postman to open the box in case I had posted them. I hadn't and the places I could have dropped them are very limited. So I am locked out until my son gets back from work.
So l have been working on a blog while I'm waiting. I think it will be fun but I'm not sure that it will be profitable. Possibly more of a distraction from money making activities.

Consequences of getting locked out.
* I booked a mystery shopping job
* I started a blog
* I bought a domain name
* I bought a printer
Could be one of those silly life changing moments.

I don't have much spare time next week as I've got some 'main gig' work on. One of the joys of zero hours contracts is not knowing til the Fri how many hours I've got the next week, if any. Also got 2 days unpaid baby sitting.
The blog is now set up and just needs a bit more content. It is going to basically be a crochet blog with a bit of money saving and reviews of fun things, days out and holidays. Since I'm going to be teaching this Monday night crochet class anyway I thought I could make them all work together. Ex This is the scarf I made at Center Parcs from the wool I bought through TopCashBack. Here are my reviews. I've kept it quite simple to begin but I expect it will change several times as I get to know what it is I want from it.

Wrong thread by chance?

Well early shift, A bit better than yesterday.I need this 'real' job to work out better.

The Royal Mail emailed me and have put me on a break! I have posted 2 letters.

Whatusersdo didn't Skype me for the special project:confused: which is disappointing because I enjoy it and I missed yesterdays so probably won't hear from them for weeks. Apparently, yesterday was Blue Monday. The most depressing day of the year!!!!

I got a lot of VYPR steers today so that was good. Not much money but fun.

Never took to it.
I also found Swagbucks to be a massive waste of effort. I used a bonus code to give me £10 extra when I joined. But tons of screened out surveys and better cashback from other companies meant I don't even look at it now.

So, missed yet another whatusersdo which is a bit of a bummer. I've been busy but won't have generated much income. I've been emailed some urgent mystery shopper tasks that someone must have bailed on but I m not driving 40 miles in snow to do them. Still it's nice to be asked.
