Yes Jan 2, 2018

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

I can't say yes or no... Jan 2, 2018

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

It varies Jan 2, 2018

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, 2018

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, 2018

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, 2018

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.
