    Weekly Flylady Thread 11th September 2017 10th Sep 17 at 9:55 PM
    Welcome to the weekly Flylady thread. If you need help organising your week or getting motivated when it comes to housework then come and join us.

    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 Valli 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!
    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!

    Ironing pile demolished.
    Dinner sorted, WUDUPA, and kitchen s&s.
    Toilets and basins cleaned. Glad I didn't clean the shower as tonight it broke. Seems that the element has gone. I am adding it to the long list of Things That Need Sorting Out. And I'm eating cake.

    Evening

    Dailies done
    Spanish lessons done
    Bank accounts checked and informed of holibobs

    Today was a bit of a parson's egg. Switched lappy on this morning and it turned itself off after about twenty minutes. It all seemed really hot, though it's on a little stand to keep the fan cool, and wouldn't switch back on. So I left it off and open to allow it to cool down.

    DH gave me a lift into town on his way to work and I bought a few bits before heading to the surgery for my tests. Good news as my blood pressure is back to normal (will have to wait until next week for bloods results).

    Back to shops to get a book for DS's birthday pressie and some cs books to take on holibobs. I read them there and then donate them to DS's library - managed to get five for £4 on offer.

    Also managed to get some euros at increased rate of 1.10 to £1 - a slight improvement on a couple of weeks ago.

    A couple of other shops and then to the bus station. Well - it absolutely chucked it down ! I mean like a monsoon Still raining when I got home and so was soaked - jeans still on dryer.

    Lappy was sitting looking forlorn and I had an . Fetched the hand-hoover and, holding it over a sheet of newspaper, gently hoovered both sides of the lappy. Holding my breath, I switched it on and voila !! Fingers xd it's solved - not hot atm.

    Hugs to all, sticks and spoons if you need extra
    Hope you all have a super Thursday

    • Clear out your trousers/skirts

    Thought I'd update the flylady lists even though I'm working off list this week.
    Clearing out trousers/skirts was easy as I have hardly any clothes. DD1 and I joined WW in March and I've lost nearly 4 stone. DD1 refused to let me keep any of my big clothes "just in case" so they all went to be weighed in, giving me enough money for one new pair of jeans
    I'm still finding it hard to see myself as any smaller. I only kinda realised when I went to my bosses birthday party and her husband asked why I was wearing a baggy jumper. It wasn't meant to be baggy
    Will start on more jobs once DD2 is up and alive, I have to say she's been very helpful the last few days. She's not normally.

    Morning All

    DH is doing school and pre-school runs - he always seems to wonder what the fuss is about them so i thought he could have a go today seeing as he's off work

    Pretty pleased with what I have achieved so far. DW on, second load of washing on, beds made. I am decluttering a cuppa then off to the paid stuff for 2 hours. Re-homed yet more toy-related kibble from the LR (can I bin various McDs happy meal emoji soft toys without it being noticed do you think) and plan to load some of our DVDs into Ziffit later on.

    Texted best pal and asked her if she wants to call in on her way home from work this evening for a quick vino and a catch up - her reply YEEEESSSS PLEASEEEEE!

    Have great days all x

    Thanks for all the hugs. Friend is now home, we went to see her last night. Seems no secondaries but all her scans have been sent to a specialist hospital so she is awaiting news from them as to what they will do next.

    Mr N and I did some team serious flying yesterday, he dusted and vacuumed pretty much everywhere while I blitzed the kitchen then continued decluttering my office. Still progress to be made in the office but it is heaps better (or fewer heaps) and beginning to feel encouraged.

    Went for my longest run this morning, still not up to 5km yet but have broken the 4km so pleased.
    Some garage sorting to be done now as Mr N has found himself a winter retirement project rebuilding an old motor bike, currently in 7 boxes at its owners home until we have space. Much of the clutter is my flower arranging stuff, so that needs sorting and putting away more compactly.
    Remember...a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

    I'm supposed to be cleaning bathrooms today but spent the morning mooching at the shopping centre with mum and micro-baby she bought me a toastie as a thank you for babysitting...

    I did back up my photos earlier though, and sorted out my college files. Have also got kits together for tonight, and will find something warm for me. Will take some cash in case the tuck shop is open, I owe one of the football mums a coffee.

    Just having a breather then I'll go fill my bucket and get the rubber gloves on...

    Just checking in....

    Work done, Ziffit items loaded and boxed up (£11 for 10 minutes work, not too shabby at all), hall and downstairs toilet floors hoovered and mopped. Will get dinner on shortly - leftover spag bol with garlic bread so nice and easy.

    Have pleasant evenings all x

    Lordy it's cold out there! Really glad I sorted hats and gloves for the car. Both kids having a warm bath now and the heating is on.

    I did clean the bathrooms in the end, using my new folding bucket (!) although not much else has been achieved today. I still haven't properly sorted my wardrobe - need to find my warmer clothes!

    Might make a start and tackle a drawer now...

    Busy day at work, but at least it was productive.

    Bedrooms dusted, DD's bedding changed and washed. Just about dry now. Shower cleaned.

    I also need to dig out some warmer clothes and my boots. I lurve my boots, so they will be in regular action now until about next Easter at least.

    Hmmm..... I wonder if this idea could be adapted to make poo-picking after dark a bit easier - you get the idea, head-torch on, scan garden, and home in on the sparkly bit.

    I've been so off list this week it isn't true. Lots of work, getting DD sorted for uni and generally piddling about doing stuff. House is generally ok but I need to wait and see what is left when she goes as I'm not sure what's her bags of 'stuff' and what is ours! I'll get there

    Morning ladies!

    I have no ironing. *glow*

    Laughing lots over sparkly glitter poo. You lot are hilarious!

    Must go to the gym today. Wimped out when my plumber arrived unexpectedly to carry on with more work yesterday. Downside was I got to hear an altercation between two of the builders Boss turned up and one guy sent to another job to cool down. My flood wall needs to be built please!!!

    DH was away in Reddich for work last night, so bed to myself...and the cat...needless to say, he got the best spot.

    Hugs to all x

    Morning all,

    Fell asleep watching Poirot on the Ipad last night, very annoyed not to find out whodunnit

    3 hours paid stuff today, and promised DD a McDs for tea as a treat she's so excited

    Will do some bits of admin and, if I can be bothered, polish the living room. Have great days all xx

    Hello!

    Think I've just lost about 2hrs replacing the window film on one patio door... Unwittingly I used an adhesive one last time - yikes! What a mess getting it off! Thankfully the new went on very easily, it's a static one so I hope it doesn't slide off in the sun! I've only done one pane as I realised after cutting, that the rolls were 1.5m not 2m. So I don't have enough to do the other side. Looks great, though! Will do the rest on Monday.

    Also made soup, stuck a wash on and wiped down the kitchen. I've filled the sink with hot water and sloshed in some cranberry and orange z0flora, omg the house smells lovely, and no trace of my whiffs French onion soup

    Next job after lunch is hang the washing up, take some bits upstairs that are blocking my way and vac the hall, LR, kitchen and DR.

    Then my reward will be a posh coffee and a sit down with my book.
