    Weekly Flylady Thread 10th July 2017 9th Jul 17 at 8:55 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!
    MAD half hour
    - Mad is the abbreviation for Make A Difference.
    The idea is that you have a Forth bridge (ie never-ending - or just huge) task but that you work on it in half-hour bursts. This way you know you ARE stooping, and that you won't get it finished but you will make a difference - so it might be clearing out - the garage or shed, or clothes sorting, or weeding - you get the picture - but rather than keep going until you've lost the will to live you do half an hour...but, eventually those half hours will get the job done!

    Mr S/A/T/M/L/Al - supermarkets Sainsburys, Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi. You get the picture!!

    Hi WeeMidgie!

    I've done 5 hours of paid thing 1, and an hour of home based paid thing 2. The WM is on with my work trousers so of course it is now pouring down with rain for the first time in weeks.It'll be interesting to see how the water leak in the road copes with the river that is currently running down the hill.

    I've got a tub of bolognese out of the freezer so it'll be that and courgette tagliatelle for dinner later. Ironing is critical - and it would be good if I could make myself do everyone enough to get through to Friday after which no ironing of boy uniform for seven weeks.

    FFP, we generally take salad, fruit and a tub of nuts. The nuts are filling and help with my 'don't get enough calories problem', and I eat those even if I CBA with salad. This morning was blue cheese, bacon and walnut salad for OH. I make baked egg things with courgettes too which travel well and are filling. Have a search for 'midlife mummy makeover' on facebook for some of memory girls ideas.

    Came home from school run to a difficult phone call, dealt with that and trying to brush it off - wish people would stop trying to involve me in their business, why do people do that

    DD has had a glowing school report and they are happily munching dinner now. Bath for kiddies next, then make DH packed lunch for tomorrow, prep dinner then flop in a heap.

    I'm to the point now where I wish he'd take up some sort of a hobby that would get him out of the house for a bit. Anyone else with retired DH's have this problem?

    Sorry, I've mithered on for a bit too long there - making up for lost time, I guess.

    Oh my word!! Back from work and we are on page 3!! Fab

    So, WM x 1 run and towels are hanging outside. Clean washing sorted back to its rightful owners. DW run, emptied and restacked. Dinner such as it was has been cooked and eaten. I spilt half a packet of quinoa on the kitchen floor, so sweeping is now the order of the day. Recycling out ready for the morning. I'll check out the rest of the lists and see where I get to.

    Lovely to 'see' everyone.

    Valli, I completely forgot to say Huge Congratulations on the three stone weightloss, it's an amazing achievement. (And good luck with the rest.)

    Had a couple of productive hours flying this afternoon.
    • Cleared up the baby seagull mess in the back alley where they had to stay for 24 hours because there was a big party in the communal garden;
    • Washed and miltoned all their food boxes and refilled them ready for the next couple of days while I'm out and about;
    • Made brioche rolls stuffed with goats cheese and pesto filling mmmm for the outings;
    • watered all of the pots that were baked dry that don't get a decent soaking when it rains because they're too close to the walls;
    • finally finished tidying up the yard which has been a mess for a couple of months while I've been busy. It looks much, much better.
    Keeping it AF

    Waving to everyone!

    I've done a long day at the paid stuff, two loads of washing, level one of the list, (this was hard as there were many dirty windows) plus I beeswaxed the table, swished the bog and sink, emptied the bathroom bin and now I'm sitting down.

    Pick 'n' mix today:
    - went to Clubbercise
    - tidied away a lot of stuff from the kitchen
    - vacuumed all downstairs - kitchen, hall, lounge/diner
    - cleared and cleaned dining room table ready for student.
    - started to do a bit of MAD clearing of paperwork from office
    - just getting paperwork ready for assessment tomorrow
    - 1 load washing done, hung out, brought in dry
    - Mr N did a shop at Mr T with MIL
    Remember...a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

    Quick listy update... Kitchen tidied, surfaces cleared and wiped, floors swept and fridge inspected. Meal plan about to be imagined up. It will involve spinach and courgettes...

    I spent my MAD on paperwork. I have dented it but not cleared it. That might be another MAD tomorrow.

    FFP - I do pretty much the same as others have said for packed lunches. DH would eat a ham sandwich every day given the chance, so he gets some sort of salad with a carb or a meal from leftovers to heat up. When I make a quiche, I portion it up and freeze it so that I can pull a slice out to go with his salad. On a really lucky day, I let him have a ham sandwich as a treat!! I also try to meal plan lunches for the week but they are interchangeable. I think that was a really helpful tip from Lynnejk, as it had never occurred to me before

    Evening all - waves

    Taken me ages to read through but great to read everyone's news We actually had some sunshine yesterday but back to normal today with grey clouds and rain. I think I'm turning Scottish because I'm soooo pale - I've only sat out in the sun about six days this year so far

    Did the dailies
    Kitchen WUDUPA, all bunkers and the hob cleaned. I have found the best way to keep the sink drain clear is going back to neat bleach and boiling water (instead of all other 'stuff')- forgot I knew that and it's such a cheap option as well.
    I also ran around and dusted everything everywhere.

    MAD today was some more files whilst watching Wimbles. What an exciting day eh !!

    Hugs all round, sticks and spoons where needed
    Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday

    Hi all x
    I've failed miserably with the list today absolutely hee haw done. Anyway tackled a bit of washing so I suppose that's something
    I'm chuckling at being on page 3, stick some old timers in the mix although it's still pitiful remember when 3 pages could be done in jig time just with HHCs
    Thanks to all for the lunch ideas, I took a box of cereal bars in today for my 10 o'clock break but I think for next week I'll just take a box of cereal as that's my breakfast time anyway instead of sandwiches followed by sandwiches at lunch. Going to make a pasta dish tomorrow for dinner so I'll save some for wed lunch. I'm having soup tomorrow for a change.

    Will endeavour to do better with the lists tomorrow when I get home

    Night all x
    I'm not a muggle...I'm just magically challenged

    Sorry Lynne, I misread that as watching the Wombles! Was very nearly jealous. Must learn not to skim read....
    An unexpected no work day today, so no excuses. I'm just making a list of the errands that I must do at some point, then later there will be no excuses for not tackling the list. My MAD will be the paperwork / budget backlog. Ironing pile cleared already, but in truth it wasn't exactly a pile, more of a bump so not as virtuous as it sounds.
    Catch you later x
