    Good stuff Nathy!

    I also find villages and especially farms are really good jobs. They pay quite well as they are out of the way abit and all of my customers are lovely to deal with. I agree with you that most of the biggish towns and citys are quite sown up but there are still bits and pieces out there, you just have to find them ;)

    Excuse my ignorance about facebook and facebay. Can you open an account using your business name or does it have to be your personal name. Also, do facebook and facebay link together. It sounds like it might be a good way to build up some business....i must learn more about it. Has anyone got a link to their facebook or facebay account that I can take a peek at?

    I created a Facebook account for the business........https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002812311959.

    Once you have done that, find some local Facebay groups and post some ad's on there........simples
