A friend of mine cooked dinner Wednesday night and something in it didn't agree with me. So I spent the night heaving and took things easy on Thursday. Cancelled a major appointment that was to take place on Thursday, and am now trying to reschedule. Not good, but these days, I'm careful about my health, because ignoring a small complaint allows it to build into a bigger problem.
The good news is that I have finalised plans to go on holiday in May. Initially I was going to use a bunch of vouchers I have (the vouchers allow you to stay in a number of places all over SA and Mozambique and only pay for the food and drinks), but a friend of a friend emailed me last night, asking if I would stay at their resort in exchange for writing some copy for them. Essentially, the assignment is a two-day job and I'll spend the time using their facilities and having fun, and then write about it. Once that's done, I stay on for my actual holiday. Two of my friends are very excited because they get to come along for the ride.
My question to you is, would you take on a job that offers payment in-kind, rather than cash? And if so, what are the conditions that the payment have to meet?
