    Default What's your number?

    366 days in 2016
    105 of them are weekends
    8 Bank Holidays (unless your in Scotland)
    Leaves 253 billable days for the majority of us here

    I billed 240 of them, and only had one day off since July (I think I was actually sick) add whooping cough at the start of the year means I have probably only taken 7 days holiday in 2016 (and two of those was for a funeral) although I've got 3 days booked between Christmas and New Year

    I am doing something wrong

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    4 months off over the summer accounted for the majority of the 'missing' days

    I reckon 231. Until October I only had a couple of days off and also billed two bank holidays. Then the planned week off before contract extension turned out to be 2 1/2 weeks off whilst a few terms were sorted out, and today is hopefully my last.

    Starting 2017 unemployed, so we'll see if I get anywhere close to that.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.
