A Reminder To Take Time Off Over Christmas – With Treated.com

I’m unofficially on countdown mode for Christmas now. In my head anyway because, as a freelancer, I won’t really be slowing down any time soon. Work is still coming in, and it still needs to be done, but I can’t complain. (Well, I can but no-one would listen haha!)   And on top of work, […]
