    Asking a random bunch of internet weirdos to comment on a situation we have no knowledge of, no real tangible insight in to doesn't really help but fuel speculation.

    Everything here is pure speculation and it would be best resolved by asking the client why it is only a 2 week extension. It could be for a number of issues.... Budget sign off? New IR35 Rules? New Business win pending? Or shutting you out over Xmas before bringing you back?

    None of us know and only you can ask the client.

    Your wife should have asked you, how long

    Ask the same question of the client to avoid disappointment

    I'm not convinced it helps for you to project your own personal problems onto the OP's contractual dilemma, but ICBW.

    You are ultimately right of course but some of that speculation covered things I hadn’t previously thought about, so success as far as I’m concerned.

    Another contractor and I got extended until just before Christmas this week (each by about a month) to keep all contractors in sync. Depending on what sector you are in they might not be thinking about 2020 yet. Or they might not want you next year.

    Would recommend asking the agent.
