Good morning ladies,

How can I wake up tired?

This week I am going to really try hard. The house is more than respectable following the 21st celebrations. Really it should be a case of maintenance.

I have a pile of ironing to tackle. I will give downstairs a flutter when I'm back from the morning school run. I will try to wrap a few presents when I get back from work at 2pm. Ironing will be started after dinner tonight.

I hope everyone has a successful week.

Morning all. Thanks Dusty for the list. I'm in again and think I may actually get through my list for today even if the paid stuff is busy as I have a bit of a head start on the LR from yesterday.

I got a second wind last night, so the tree and most decorations have gone up, and I've wrapped all the presents which have arrived so far. I just have some tinsel wreaths to make - gosh that sounds tacky, but they will be pretty.

Anyway my list for today:

Walk dogs
Hoover/clean floors in LR and HSL
Wipe paintwork in HSL
Wash windows
Water plants

Have a great day everyone.
If not you, who? If not now, when?

Morning all

Thankyou for the lists xxx

I'm in for the 1st part of the week, then off to else where in the world, having only had 4 days off this whole year, I am now ready for a break.

So far yesterday and today
Daily type stuff done
Floors done
Cards all written and stamped ready to post.
All presents delivered, just got to sort something for the person feeding the cat.
Cat food sorted.
Passport back with a visa in it, I missed counted the days by 1 sothat has cost me an extra 35, thank goodness I doubled checked last week, if I had got to the airport with no visa, = No flight and I would have been well p&&&&ed off.

Off to work

Take care hugs all round xxx
35 to go. 35 already gone
(5 stone to get rid off in total)

I'm in again this week. Flew mostly off list last week but it was a success. This week though I'm back to work as normal so need to remember to keep motivated and maintain my efforts of last week.

We bought our tree at the weekend and DH broke the stand So have to get a new one today and get it up ready to decorate so todays list will be useful!

This morning I have already done more than I nornally would so I'm off to a good start!

Monday - living room, hallway, stairs
Level One
Clear the floor of clutter
Remove anything now which can give more space for putting the tree up (or tidy your tree if it is up)
Level Two
Vacuum the stairs and hallway and living room
Wipe and water plants
Level Three
Wash the windows
Wipe the paintwork in the hallway and up the stairs
Extras
Write some cards, buy any remaining 'special family ones' before the shops sell out

See you all later!

Try again!

Morning everyone

Thanks for the list again Dusty

DS and DD both off school poorly - DS has a cold with hacking cough and DD has had sickness and diarrhea all weekend. Think I'll be flying in other rooms this morning to steer clear of them both for a while, although getting a fire going and watching a film cuddled up on the sofa may be in order this afternoon, especially with the Brucie Bonus of not having to do school runs and football training runs tonight.

Monday - living room, hallway, stairs
Level One
Clear the floor of clutter
Remove anything now which can give more space for putting the tree up (or tidy your tree if it is up)
Level Two
Vacuum the stairs and hallway and living room
Wipe and water plants
Level Three
Wash the windows
Wipe the paintwork in the hallway and up the stairs

Extras
Get yours overseas cards in the post last dates are this week
International Airmail
Wednesday 5 December Asia, Australia, Far East (including Japan), New Zealand
Friday 7 December Africa, Caribbean, Central America, Middle East and South America
Monday 10 December Canada, Eastern Europe and USA
Wednesday 12 December Western Europe


Write some cards, buy any remaining 'special family ones' before the shops sell out

My extras:
Gather firewood and coal from garage
Clean the microwave
Clean the hob - put cleaner on it yesterday afternoon and then forgot about it
S&S kitchen
Hoover and mop floor in kitchen

Maybe make a start on Sister's present
Ring npower re closed account as not impressed at the extra 160 going out of my account this morning, along with the 95 to Scottish Power (my new provider)

Caved into pressure yesterday and have put the Xmas tree up - it looks lovely. Fell asleep on the sofa last night and woke up this morning with the tree lights still on - it was very sparkly and festive.

Having a cuppa now - thanks OH - and then will get cracking at 9.30 - anyone up for HHC?

Have a lovely day everyone

TMD xx

Any spare vibes please ladies for one of my friends. She has found a lump and is getting checked out tonight. A mum in our children's class sadly passed away last week due to breast cancer so my friend is very worried. That is two children in our year group who have lost a mum to cancer and one in the year below all within the last 2 years, so sad.

Oh no DK, I hope its nothing sinister.

It's frightening all these little ones losing a parent, so cruel. I don't know how well you know the childrens fathers, but there is the WAY foundation which is for "widowed and young" people, and I've found it to be a lifeline this year. The good thing is, the children are involved too, so they get to meet other kiddies who have suffered the same loss.

Positive vibes being wished for your friend Dusty. We have a class at our local primary school who have lost 2 parents in the last 2 years, plus another Mum from the same class is also dealing bravely with cancer at the moment. For a small village school, it is a huge percentage, and they are parents to 11 children between them, so it makes for a lot of sad children.

I don't know where my last HH went to - well I do, I sat on here instead - so now I am definitely moving my rump and battering on.
Anyone in with me?????

TMD xx

I got the vacuum out without realising and before I'd finished clearing the stairs of clutter. That's the non methodical way I work hence an untidy house
But Living room floor decluttered. Bottom of stairs clutter sorted into piles and put upstairs. I'll attack the rest/top of the stairs bit by bit/next week.

You're absolutely right. It's because the upstairs spare rooms are cluttered that stuff has nowhere to go. But generally it does, it just takes effort. Sending positive vibes your friends way.

Trulymadlydeeply_indebt I'm so out of flylady habits but HH is that half hour? I'll join you for the last 15 mins now. And get some more cr.p off of the stairs!
