Pricing For Repairs

Brakes - started making a quiet grinding sound at very slow speeds. Hoping i just need pads.
Speedo - not working for months. Second time it's happened. When it went, i smacked the dash and it came back for a day, but now there's nothing - no speedo, no odo, nothing ticking over.
Sparkplugs and cables - RAC changed out the head a few months ago and advised i relace the plugs and cables.
Breather (?) hose - at the front of the engine under the cover, the one on the left - car lost power because the hose had a hole in it, RAC man cut off the piece with the tear in it and forced the hose onto the socket but said i should replace.
Rough idea? I'm going to put in a budget of £250 including labour and get as much done as i can until next payday (end of january). I've got a mobile mechanic that's looked after me when i needed my thermostat housing replaced that I'm hoping can do it all outside my house.

Breather hose would imagine £10 tops can be done yourself easily.
Brakes -pads £25 if discs probably double
Speedo could be many things

It's accessible without a big tear down either from above or below.
It can be a pig to do as the retaining pin tends to snap off requiring a good amount of pulling with pliers or suchlike and the sensor can be a bit snug and need a bit of persuasion.
Doable on the road but allow about an hour.
Replacement sensor and pin readily available on eBay for £15 and up.
