I dragged my old Xbox out of storage and hooked it up... does that count as productive?


Depends on what you played.

I worked out. Third time at a new fitness place. Determined to get in better shape.

I went to work, then came home (took a nap  Wink), then went back to work.  Then I went to my sister in law's house to feed her cat/ water plants, etc. while she's out of town.  Then I took 2 10yr old boys to eat out.  Not sure where my head was on the last, whatever sanity I had is now hanging by a frayed thread.

Packing, packing, packing... ugh. Scrubbed down the bathroom and basement. Taking a much needed break at the moment. I hate moving.

Have spend most of the day making carbon fibre cores for a couple of latex weapons I am working on. It has been a long and boring process, but I believe these two may be the best I have ever made  Smiley

I found a voltmeter for my electric trike. It cost the princely sum of four pounds from a car boot sale. Also a friend has given me a compass for the trike- neither are as Steamy as I would like, but if something in brass turns up then I will replace the cheap, modern, functional instruments with something prettier- if the older designs are up to the job.

I bought a shiny pickelhaube with a scale pattern on it in an antique shop as well as some old Kipling books. On the inside of the hat, it says "The Henderson and Ames Co." There is a star on the metal headband and it looks like there should have been another on the opposite side. It does fit on my head albeit, pretty snug. All in all, for $18, it at least makes a nice decorative piece.

I also signed up for a sewing class, so I can be more productive in the future.

Well, today, I built a kitchen cabinet, and this evening, I did a bit more work on my presentation case for the Asylum this year. It's a flintlock duelling case for the Gentleman's duelling society. Still got a bit of work to do as yet and I need to etch the brass platesand attach them and put some corners on. But you get the idea.

Apologies for the crappy camera phone picture.

I did loads of productive stuff today. I bought some well needed essentials for the new flat, as well as cleaning materials for the old one! I made three collars, including one with a vole skull as the focal point, had a roast dinner and watched QI Smiley

Well, I got up. It's productive considering how extraordinarily shitty I feel today. It usually takes a fairly strong sort of cold to knock me down, if only because I don't realise I'm sick otherwise. But this 'un certainly feels like worst one I've had in a long time.

Yes. My co-workers and I cranked out nearly 4000 rolls of bordette ( corrugated coloured paper border roll, that split into two scallop edged halves, 6 per box ). I was on the packing end today and my back is killing me. Still, very productive!  Grin

Not nearly as productive as would have liked.
I have to many projects and not enough time. To make matters worse, the quill got a hold of me today and dragged me from the project I had intended to work on.

It's half ten on a Sunday morning and I'm up and dressed, which is pretty unusual for me  Cheesy

Got a bit more done on my one of my ongoing little projects and now keep thinking it is later than it actually is.

I got my workout done nice and early, plus did some subversion work for a friend.  Finally I updated my blog and also installed a plugin to enable proper support for mobile phone browsers.

It's nice to watch the todo list shrinking slowly. Smiley

Bought new corset ribbons, got my son measured for a suit, made arrangements with my caterer, chopped up an old coat to make it vaguely late Victorian, and went and had a very thorough eye test at a different optician from my usual one- who has informed me that, despite having been prescribed reading glasses by my old optician for the last 20 years, I actually do not need glasses at all. Which is just as well, because I never wear them anyway- I always lose them.

Well, I've been at Uni for an hour already, and it's still another hour to my class, so I'd say I've been productive.

Yes- bought a 1923 OS map for a job at work, then got home and bought the transfers I need to complete my Victorian express locomotive and (perhaps more importantly) two more carriages for it to pull.
