Posted:I need to make as much money as is physically possible in legal ways in the next 6 months, in order to go to Australia for a year (will be working thre too..)

I have qualifications up to A level, (uni dropout. ooh..) and lots of quite irrelevant experience working with various animals.

Any ideas? confused

Yep, fruit picking is the way to go. No qualifications needed, fairly flexible working hours....good money.

Or you could allways join/start a circus that gets paid well wink tongue

Posted:I did apple picking last year, but the apple season's still a good few months away here.

Thanks for the Wwoof link, I'll hopefully be doing some o that, but I've developed an expensive taste for Scuba diving, so I want to go with enough money to not have to look for work straight away.. Me Daddy said he'd lend me the money for the visa check, if they choose to do one, and I have enough for the flight, so it's just spending money..

I could try start a circus, but I could only manage the bearded lady job..

Posted:I'm sort of allergic to offices, wink
I can cope for a while, but I'm a country lass at heart, and I go twitchy if I'm inside too long.. heh. maybe I'll just have to put up with it for a bit, I think Australia has enough open spaces to make up for it..
Part of the problem is Lancaster, it's a bit on the dead side when it comes to jobs, and I'm a bit worried if I start messing around moving house just to get somewhere with better job prospects, I'll wind up spending so much on living costs I'd wind up worse off than in me current living with/working odd days for/parents..
I've tried leaving home 3 times already, maybe I'll actually manage to say away this time!
