2 hours a day every day is a lot. I do a few hours a day on a Friday and sometimes a Monday as well (well spaced out as you can see) I volunteer in a charity shop and the work is as easy as I want it to be, involves as much sitting, standing or walking around as I want so I'm not stuck doing one thing which causes pain. Even doing this much is hard as it takes it out of me the next day and I'm sore, achey and too tired/in pain to sleep (I woke up at 10 to 5 this morning)

I know I wouldn't be able to do 5 days in a row.

Hi Bunny

I'm currently doing a couple of OCR IT courses at my local college.It's only 3 hours on a tuesday and thursday so gives me time in between to recover.My plan is to get qualified so as to start working for myself from home.

I had applied to do a social science course with the OU but can't get the funding and can't afford to pay for it myself so have had to give up on that idea.

If I didn't do my courses I think my brain would stagnate.
