June was a VERY busy month. It was non-stop work everyday. I hope to have a short break in July. It's good to have work but also exhausting.

4 days (2 weekends) Jul 1

I had a very busy month: the only 4 days I didn’t work were the 1st and the last weekend of June. I’m having a day off today: I’ve delivered a translation this morning and I’m not expecting any more work…

Is it really so hard to start counting from 0?

6-8 days Jul 1

June always seems to be a slow month for me every year. It could be because of all of the bank holidays and days-off in-between.

It was actually my first slow June, which for me, February is the slowest one.
Best.

hopefully only 1 day.
June was a very busy month.

Now I'm enjoying 2 weeks holidays BUT with my pc because I've still a lot of work (so I enjoy in the morning and then translating in the afternoon + evenings)

A couple right at the beginning of the month (much appreciated after a very busy month of May) and then last Thursday, but I had no jobs because I refused a job that would have eaten into my long weekend with friends that I'm just back from.

Have been translating a long book from Italian since February of this year. And then I have had my daily work for professors here in the US.

It was a quiet month, but... I checked my records, and: I had jobs on all days except 1, 2, 8, 16, 22, 29 and 30 June (i.e., the weekends).

Of course, I did not work all through the month of June, but the question is "...were you available for work but had no jobs?"
I am not (any more) available for work on weekends and on holidays of which we had many this year in Germany (not "bank holidays" as Michael Harris stated, but religious holidays).
I am all the time getting more offers than I can serve, but this month, when I rejected because of enough other work I was asked more than twice by when I could do this job.

And although I indicated a date far behind the formerly desired one, I got the assignment.
I think this is due to the fact that some of my colleagues are already off for their summer vacation.

Not even the weekends, thankfully. April was terrible and May was ordinary. June saved my life. I hope July keeps the same rhythm.
