Hi, just wanted to get a chance to post a colorful graphic, so posting this one early :)

Happy (last one of September) Sunday, PAers!

and here's some tea and biscuits for Sunday brunch ...

Piqued CI

Naturally, I've managed to get to a final, yes-this-really-has-to-be-done-today deadline. I've moved over the list from yesterday, so I can start the list with some stuff crossed off...

 1) Test one defect
 2) And another
 3) And another Woohoo!
 4) And another Woohoo #2!
 5) And another
 6) And another
 7) And another
 8) And another
 9) And another (Strictly speaking, it's been Monday for the past 9 hours or so.)
10) And another (Made progress)
11) And last one (Made progress)

Making "discomfort" my goal did produce substantially different results than approaches I've used in recent memory. I will continue playing with this concept. I am VERY PLEASED with my tremendous progress!

Making discomfort a daily goal is the key to making progress. Robert Leahy

EleanorBE's Sunday list

Hello. Still working this weekend. But only for two hours. Am going to go on Chat and do it in half hour bursts with small breaks.

Thanks for the tea and biscuits!

Here's today:

10.30-11 - check through and add to L chapter p.1-10

11.05 - 11.35 - as above p. 11

This is going slower than expected - so only up to p.18. Quite pleased with the work though. 

11.40-12.10 - as above p. 21-30- got as far as p.24

12.15-12.45 - as above to end

12.45-1.15 - lunch

Well, I didn't tick all of my list off because each section of edits on what I'm writing took longer than expected. But did do the four half-hour bits of work I promised myself.
