    Weekly Flylady Thread 12th June 2017 11th Jun 17 at 9:37 PM

    What is FLYLADY? Well, it's our version of the US flylady idea - but we work on the principle that housework is not fun, it's boring, can be time-consuming, is often thankless but, unfortunately, necessary. It's here on Old Style to provide the support we all need and to make the whole task easier and quicker. We also accept that, sometimes, life just gets on top of us and we can't keep up, maybe because we're time-poor, not in the best of health and/or we have littlies who need us. We are definitely NOT control freaks aiming for perfection and utterly spotless show-homes.

    Welcome to the weekly Flylady Thread. You're more than welcome to join us in the everlasting battle against dust, grime and gibble. The aim of our thread is to make those onerous tasks less daunting, and to support each other - and to make time for the finer things in life!

    Right now the thread is looking very quiet...but please do remember we have to abide by MSE rules; each post should, ideally, include some mention of flying.

    Thank you Natty for last week's thread

    It is your responsibility to read the forum rules, please follow them on this thread as Flylady has been here a LONG time and is a fabulous support and resource for lots of us. All posts should have some Flylady-related (ooh a compound adjective) content!

    The idea is that even if you are really busy you don't need to fall off the wagon!

    Every room comes back around next week so please don’t stress about catching up

    These lists are only suggestions and not a must do list; you are more than welcome to post and follow your own lists.

    Also adding a declutter mission each day will help to gradually clear the clutter and make flying easier.

    A few of the basics before we start the week

    Hotspots are areas where if one thing gets put there, loads of other things follow!

    Daily routines are anything you need to do on a daily basis like washing, swish and swipe kitchen and bathroom, ironing, making beds, vacuuming high traffic areas, making meals etc.

    Night-time routines are all things which make getting ready in the morning easier, preparing clothes for the next day, making lunches, swish & swipes of the kitchen and tidying the living room before you go to bed plus personals like shower/brush teeth etc.

    Fling Boogie - stick on some loud music, grab a bin bag and whiz around the house finding items that can go out with the rubbish, recycling, for charity shop, basically anything that will stop it cluttering your home.

    Swish and swipe/S&S means have a quick wipe over an area such as a sink or toilet to prevent the build up of dirt. This is usually done on a daily basis

    HHE/HHC/HHI Half Hour exercise/challenge/ironing ... run around for 30 minutes to the Benny Hill music frantically cleaning exercising or ironing.. other music may be used if you prefer!
    WM ~ Washing machine
    TD ~ Tumble dryer
    SC ~ Slowcooker
    BM ~ Breadmaker
    DW ~ Dishwasher
    SOAADFA ~ Sit on 'bottom' and do 'nothing'
    KH/XH/FW ~ Ex-husband and other not so polite versions
    DH/DD/DS/DW/DP ~ Dear husband/daughter/son/wife/partner/whatever
    OH/SO ~ Other half/significant other
    NN ~ nice neighbour
    Toxic (friend/mother/sister/whoever) ~ person in your life that seems to exist to make your life miserable
    AF ~ Aunt Flo 'time of the month'.. nothing to do with flying but it comes up often.
    ETA ~ Edited to add
    Gibble ~ miscellaneous crap that appears forever homeless
    Dot-to-dot ~ pick a small area (not a whole room) like a chair/coffee/table/shelf/worktop or wherever- thats your first 'dot' - totally clear it - clean it - and only put back what should be there - deal with what you have removed (not just move it somewhere else) then if you have time move on and do the same to another 'dot' -the idea is just like a dot to dot puzzle, you aim to join up all the dots and have a tidy room. The trick is to keep each dot tidy until you get them all joined up! All credit to AnW's Mum for this one
    RoD ~ Room of Doom, the one room that feels like it is a permanent pit and cannot be used to its potential!

    However, with DH being over sixty he's worried he would find it difficult to find another job, especially as good as the one he has. So I'm hanging in atm. He is planning to take early retirement in eighteen months, all things being equal, and then all this place will see of us will be a clean pair of heels

    Did the dailies.
    Bank accounts checked and money shuffled.
    Spent about four hours doing a load of prepping, cooking, portioning and freezing. Most of fridge now empty.
    I then cleaned all the kitchen, including the floor.

    MAD today was emptying under the side tables in the LR. All swept out, everything cleaned and only replaced what should be there, such as spare glasses, headphones and cables and other such clutter.

    Hugs, sticks and spoons to anyone needing some
    Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday

    Thank you Mumof2 and lynnejk!

    The fishermen in the family (dad, brother, my grandad when he was still with us, sister'sBF) all rave about how wonderful Scotland is - but the furthest 'north' we've lived is Suffolk and the weather is a lot different down here. DS1 is a chef and didn't have much time off over December - the odd day off till the actual Christmas period and then even less. So when he took much annual leave in January, decided to go to Scotland, on his motorbike. To go camping...! I managed to convince him to find a B&B to stay in instead, and he went up, stayed 1 night and rode around the next day, then came back home! He said it was beautiful, but hadn't realised how much colder it was than down here...

    Work again yesterday, and DS2 in school for 2 out of 2 days :-)

    Wheely bins were emptied before we left for the school run, so I emptied the bags of shredded paper I'd stashed out of the way in the car boot into the empty green waste bin, then brought the bins back round after work. Put away the washing up, and started on the list:

    Level 1

    Open the windows WIDE
    Empty the bin

    Clear the coffee table - polish and dust - don't have a coffee table, so grabbed a cloth and spray and went round the surfaces that were clear (or clearable with 1 hand while holding cloth in the other) and cleaned them
    Wipe coasters, light switches, door handles and sticky sockets
    Treat the pot plants to some water and a wipe/spruce up

    Level 2
    Vacuum or wipe sofas and chairs including under seat cushions I'd washed the sofa cover the other day but it had motorbike helmets and topboxes on when I was ready to put it back on, so it had lounged around on the ironing pile waiting for me - got that put back on, and vacc'd behind while I had the sofa pulled out
    Fold throws and hang
    Vacuum drapes
    Wipe sills
    Polish windows and mirrors

    Level 3
    Dust everywhere
    Wipe skirtings, dado and picture rails
    Flick a feather duster over pendant lights and wall lights
    vacuum/sweep floor
    Steam mop/mop hard floors

    Extras
    Make sure nothing is turning into compost in the fridge - weave those withering veggies into your meal plans - science experiments removed Monday, but I planned and did a bean curry for dinner last night so I could work on the ginger... DS1 bought 750g of root ginger and left it for me to deal with ... It takes longer than you might think to peel that much ginger! The onions were well done before I got anything else in the pan with them :-) but I got the ginger all peeled, then blitzed it in the food processor. 1 ice cube tray full popped in the freezer to freeze into easy ginger blocks, 1 tub full in the fridge waiting for the tray to be emptied (must go and do that now), then added the carrots to the food processor and blitzed them to get a bit of ginger added. DS2 then said as we ate that he doesn't really like ginger...
    S&S kitchen and bathroom (which shouldn't be too onerous - given it was cleaned yesterday, wasn't it?)

    DS2 came back downstairs as I was scrubbing at marks on the door from the living room into the kitchen and said "What's the point of you doing that? It'll only get dirty again." Which I'm sure is true, but I'd still like to battle the dirt! He did then say the living room looked better for my having cleaned it though he still doesn't know why I bother... Having a messy house shouldn't put me off having people round, he says. Well, it does!

    Got the kitchen all cleaned up after dinner, went off to bed and got down this morning to find DS1 had made flapjacks for a snack after the 24 hour gym... He had rinsed out the pan, but there were oats and sugar stuck around the place so not as sparkly as I'd left it. Gave myself a talking out of negativity as I cleaned it up and reminded myself that the whole reason I want the house clean is for us all to live in it and that means using it. And better that he makes flapjacks with our own ingredients than buying junk from shops and leaving the wrappers in his bedroom. And, at work, people are paid to clean up before and after him so he wouldn't have thought anything about seeing the sink clean - it's what he expects. And he thought he had cleaned up by rinsing out the pan and putting it in the washing up bowl so I could get to the sink this morning.
    C.R.A.P.R.O.L.L.Z #37 - waterproof wearing cage customiser, chief of cable ties and duct tape

    It's me, DS1 (21), DS2 (14), and the cat, 1 hamster and DS1's leopard geckos.

    Morning all

    atb someone bought me a can of coke at work a couple of weeks ago, I never normally drink the stuff but it did perk me up! Sugar and caffeine, not something to be relied on I suppose but good for an emergency.

    Lynne that's exciting, but sad that you get racial abuse in Scotland, didnt know it was like that.

    Yesterday was mad, job no.1, job no. 2, gym class, meeting for job no 1 then home at 9.30pm. I slept really well last night though so I am raring to go this morning. Have dusted and tidied. Going to hang some washing out and get ready for the paid stuff.

    Thanks for todays list! Going to make a start shortly on the nursery and spare room.

    Good news about the house, skinty xx

    Yaay all work handed in, that's me done! I'm going to get some reading for pleasure books now

    I have two quotes for decorating so far - one at 800 and one at 450 - this is hall stairs and landing and downstairs loo. Now I'm wondering if I should do it myself. It's a lot of doors - 13 and emulsioning woodwork, walls and ceilings.

    I guess I have time now since I've finished studying.

    What would you do?

    All I've done today is hang the towels out after washing. Thinking picnic for dinner out on the lawn so I'll sort the kitchen while I make that...

    Busy busy day as expected. Just back from kids swimming lessons and they are eating pizza for tea. My washing pile is growing by the second!

    Feeling a bit stressy - we have another potential non-paying customer. Trying to keep a lid on my worries for now for the sake of DH, and be practical...

    Bossy - I would pay someone to do it personally, I am happy to do most DIY jobs but never decorating.

    Ok. I now have no excuse not to fly. My career is probably over and the legal fees won't be worth fighting it.

    So the next few weeks I will be utilising the career counselling offered by my governing body (for current and Ex members) and cleaning house. Also selling anything that isn't nailed down.

    Bossy I wish I lived closer to you. I'd hire myself out.

    (((Hugs))) FBO. We're here when you need company.

    (((Hugs))) atb. I hope your non-paying customer coughs up very soon.

    Skinty!!!! Great to have you back - hope the sale goes smoothly.

    Well done Bossy

    I had a meeting with my placement supervisor today and now have only a few more bits and pieces to do over the next 3 weeks, leaving me time to read, start writing bits of my portfolio assignment (its not due until 1st September), deal with an enormous frog, and hopefully get my garden under control.
    I also did a big shop and put everything away before DH came back from picking his friend up. I should have watered the garden this evening, but I haven't had the energy.

    DH is tired, I'm tired, and his friend is here for a week. I have said I will go out with them tomorrow afternoon, Saturday and Monday - that's it. I think it's going to be a long week...

    Must remember to phone the plumber about the ensuite shower screen and outside tap.

    Ah well, tomorrow is another day.

    Evening all and thoughts to all those involved in the horrific fire last night. I was in tears this morning when I heard it on the radio.

    Pleased to hear the end is in sight Iona and hope you sort some 'me time' soon.
    Brilliant news Skinty and great to 'see' you
    Hugs FBO and hope the careers peoples can help you quickly
    Hope you soon get paid ATB - so inconsiderate eh

    Dailies done
    Kitchen cleaned and all WUDUPA
    Bathroom given a thorough clean
    Spanish lessons up-to-date

    MAD today - washed and rinsed down all the paintwork in the bathroom and kitchen, except behind the fridge and freezer. Need DH's help to pull those out - so maybe at the weekend. Gosh - it really did need doing

    Hugs, sticks and spoons to anyone needing some

    Hugs all round - life seems to be tough for a few of us at the moment.

    Morning All

    Big hugs to FBO, and well done Iona you are nearly there

    Small bit of paid stuff this morning, DS going to in-laws. Mince out to defrost for dinner, and WM unloaded and pegged out. About to scoff an omelette then galvanise the small people to get dressed.

    Thanks for the well wishes - I really hope it gets paid ASAP, DH is a man on the edge at the moment and this would just be the final straw. Safe to say the customer in question is a really big company, with far deeper pockets than us....

    Have great days all x

    Morning all. Hugs where needed and hope you all get the resolutions you want with jobs, money etc.

    I haven't posted for a couple of days as I've only just been keeping up with the dailies, but this morning the dogs got me up early so I have:

    Cleaned a wine stain in the carpet
    Tidied the hall
    Washed the breakfast dishes
    Walked the dogs
    Put the recycling out
    Watered gardens and green house
    S&S'd downstairs loo and bathroom and cleaned the windows in both rooms
    Dusted the dusty bits in our bedroom and cleaned the windows in there too
    Hoovered through the house.

    Paid stuff now.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Morning,

    Just having a coffee and writing my to do list. I'm a bit behind on flying but stripped my bed this morning and it's now ready to hang out. Have also emptied the DW but need to sort the breakfast things.

    I think today is going to be a little of everything.

    Also have an appointment early aft and it's a bit of a drive.

    Hugs to FBO I wish we could help somehow xxx
