Well.... I may be a bit unpopular, but I think at 23 she should be making her own way in the world, whether she's still at college or not. My girls all had weekend/holiday jobs from the age of 16 to pay for extras and all have worked since they left full time education. I'm sorry, I don't believe that there are no jobs on the south coast during the holiday period - maybe there are no jobs that she wants to do, but hey, when I was at uni I worked in shops, factories, etc - it wasn't about the job, it was about the money! And if she's doing a music course, is there anything to stop her doing a bit of busking??!
I suspect that you are being taken for a ride by her, encouraged by her mother, who has already bled you almost dry. Be careful that you are not now in the realms of 'buying love' rather than helping out.

Yes that's basically what I said, I had to work all my holidays and weekends from the age of 13. Obviously I want to support but to motivate her to do something to earn for few hours a week.
