Yes Jan 2

Slightly less this year. One client sent me a small job on the 29th of December, but he forgot to attach the file
I expect it'll arrive today or tomorrow...

I can't say yes or no... Jan 2

Before the holidays, yes (it increases)! At the holidays and afterwards, no!

It varies Jan 2

I have had times when I have been very busy at the end of the year, but this year I had virtually nothing for the last month. Then, just before Christmas, I was offered a job. Quelle surprise...

Its my busiest time Jan 2

For me the run up to the end of the year is my busiest time. I got offered a lot of work over the holidays and could have booked my available time several times over with agencies who were desperate to place last minute projects.

Yes Jan 2

Yes but that's because I make it so. I like/need to take some time off once in a while, keep in touch with friends, read, do a little sewing, and generally take my mind off work.

Actually Jan 6

Not at the end of the year, since many people start refusing jobs as of the 20th od December (more or less) and I don't. But in January and part of February, the dynamics seem to be a lot slower.
