    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!

    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.

    Otherwise have Vimmed kitchen sink; sorted, folded, washed, hung out, etc three loads of laundry and will be glad to get it finished. I'm an MK follower in recent years but miss the daily shunts in the right direction so have been loitering on this thread too. Am feeling a little bit traitorous as I loved Flylady for years and then fell off the wagon in time to find MK. I've found MK to work better for decluttering but Flylady is still the business for keeping on top of the daily stuff, especially cleaning as that's my most hated task ...

    Hi Sj62!

    We're going away for the weekend and normally I make sure the house is (sort of) spik and span before we go but my heart's not in it today; in truth it hasn't been all week, so I'm struggling to get things done. *sigh* I'll have to get a move on because I've realised I've lost the paperwork I need for this weekend's event so I've got to unearth that from goodness knows where.

    I did the sensible thing and packed this morning so at least that's done, the sitting room is considerably cleaner than it was, the two letting rooms are ready and Kelpie's and Devil Cat's favourite petsitter is booked and briefed so we've done all of the things that really matter. A bit of dust never killed anyone.

    Hi all

    HB funny how we all like to leave the house clean and tidy before we go away. Hope you have a nice break.

    So .. washing in and dw on before I went to work. Cycled to work and back and did an extra hour. Have just got down on my hands and knees and gave the kitchen floor a really good wash. Shopping delivery arrived.

    Bossy good old Zoflora. Should douse DS in it, he has just walked in covered in goodness knows what after mucking out horses all afternoon. I shrieked at him not to walk into the kitchen, in fact I made him strip off in the utility. Wm on again I guess.

    I really should do some more paid stuff but dont feel very motivated. It might just be fish fingers chips and beans for tea.

    Hello fly ladies. Hope you're all ok. I've been lurking but not posting much.

    I am on holiday for a long weekend and it is the first time for weeks I've been truly relaxed. Have just had a walk with the dogs but before we left home today I did the dailies, run an errand, sorted paperwork and did the ironing.

    Family will be joining us here in the middle of nowhere (Nidderdale actually) in about an hour for a celebration and I'm so excited about giving DD her surprise.

    Right, enough rambling. The dogs need to eat and play (bright yellow poop at the moment due to some new chews as you were discussing this subject!).

    Have a great evening everyone.

    Hi Jazee! I miss your morning posts when you're not around, so it's great o see you back again. Have a lovely holiday.

    I've done as much, realistically, as I could have hoped to do today. I've even dusted some areas, swished and swiped the shower room, give the sitting room another quick going over and done the worst of the kitchen. What's interesting about it is that a few years ago I'd have been glowing with pride at how clean it was, whereas now I want it all to be sparkly, all of the time. It's good enough and I'm leaving it at that.

    We're home. Got absolutely drenched today when we stopped at a NT property for a late lunch for us and a walk for Rosie. Fortunately I have discovered that, although she hates the big towel, Rosie will allow me to dry her with a small microfibre cloth, which proved quite efficient, so the soft bed she has in her travelling crate didn't get soaking wet too. I will air it in the house, though (must pop outside and fetch it before bed time). Otherwise we had a good week, with some lovely sunny intervals between mostly rather lighter showers than today's.

    We have unpacked the car, I have sorted out most of the washing ready for the machine tomorrow and started putting away our unused clothes, and I have paid a visit to Mr A1д! so we now have enough food for the next few days.

    I have also read my emails, ordered a textbook that I need for my course this term, and caught up with the thread.
    Welcome Sj62
    Have a great family party, Jazee.
    Hope you're enjoying your weekend away, HB.

    Tomorrow I have to go to Cathedral City for lunch with some of my fellow students, then we are going to the "graduation" of the two who have just finished the course. DH has just realised that, because he is dog sitting, he won't be able to go and play on the railway. Oh dear

    Hope everyone has a good weekend x

    Off to do a few hours of extra work this morning so just having a cuppa & getting DD sorted to go to her friend's to play. Been feeling flat and sad again, woke up feeling like something was sat on me this morning, I really hope it passes as it's not like me.

    Will shove a wash on shortly before I go. Have good days all xx

    Yesterday, a work day, I overslept.

    Today - wide awake at 6:30.

    House is an utter shambles. DD goes to Uni today so I am hoping to restore order. Loads to iron, wash basket full. Ugh.

    I got in from work yesterday to find DD2 hadn't done any of the 4 jobs I asked her to do She'd cleared off to the next door neighbours instead as she had wanted help with the school run! I'm all for helping someone out but shouldn't I be a higher priority??
    So that was me in a bad mood for the rest of the evening (this isn't a one off thing so I'm not being a drama queen) I spent some time in my room, she finally did the jobs.
    She's currently not working (long story) so should be helping out more but isn't
    She'd left her email signed in on my laptop so yeah I looked. Good thing I did!! Seems her friend (and maybe her) has been applying for loans with my daughter as guarantor!!
    Livid is not the word! I phoned her and she said that the girl didn't get a loan but that is besides the point!!
    I have work all weekend so jobs will have to wait til the evening cos I cba at this morning.

    atb I feel a bit flat this morning too, must be something in the air! Hope the day gets better x

    Wendy oh my word!!! They are so naive arent they!!!??? I wonder if she really understands what it means to be a guarantor. And yeah funny isnt it, we laughed when we heard that DS2 had been helping his girlfriends Dad with a DIY project - he would never do that at home.

    So have just put the washing out and it's started raining again but it can stay out (DS and DHs work stuff). Doggie blankets are in the wash but I always td them which I know is not very MSE but it gets the hairs off!

    Going to do my finances next and potter.

    Ooh Jazee I forgot to say happy holidays, Nidderdale is lovely although I suspect you might get some dramatic showers over the weekend. Enjoy x

    Morning all. Hope that those of you feeling a little flat this morning feel a bit bulkier later.

    I was up at 6.30 with the dogs, walked a couple of miles towards Scar reservoir, the scenery was food for the soul, and then came back to present opening and cooked breakfast. Flying wise I have washed up as the dishwasher drives me mad. It's why I no longer have one at home.

    Off out soon, more surprises for DD and dinner out this evening.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Morning, all.

    Stumbled my way through Friday at work. Why is it that I can talk to other people's teenagers perfectly easily, they like me and will ask for (and accept) suggestions for understanding/negotiating the world around them/dealing with people/parents/siblings - but my own detests me because I'm not an aggressive arzehole with loads of money like her father?


    Anyhow, sidled off 30 mins early to get to the hospital appointment. Found out whilst I was there that I'd been referred under the Urgent Suspected Cancer protocol for the lump on my neck. Which was 'interesting' - but I was only told this after he'd scanned all the way up and down my neck and ignored the big signs saying that staff do not give any assessment or statement regarding what they see - and told me that everything was perfectly normal. Which was nice.


    Himself put me in a foul mood when I got back because he hadn't bought any food for dinner, so I went to bed early and fell asleep until about 6.30 this morning. Although not having eaten all day either probably didn't help much. And there's still no food in the house, as he didn't take my rather obvious hint (asking WTF I'm supposed to do for food) and go and get anything once I skulked off upstairs. I'm so hungry now, the Idiot Cat is beginning to look potentially tasty. And he's just the right size to fit into the SC.

    [grumble, grumble, moan, moan...]
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll

    The one morning I can have a lie in this week and at 5.37 am ..ping! wide awake. I refused to get up, snuggled down under the duvet and followed my mind through all sorts of tangents while it avoided further sleep.... 'til 8.50am I keep telling myself that I should get up and get on when I wake up (too)early but it doesn't happen .

    When I finally did get up I got washed, dressed, made the beds, opened windows upstairs, emptied the bin in DS's bedroom and cleared his floordrobe. DS stayed overnight in Hull so I took the opportunity to open his bedroom curtains and window and grab any dirty laundry before coming downstairs. Once down I sorted the washing and put the first load in BEFORE I had a cuppa.

    This week the plan was to get in to the habit of at least doing the dailies daily while I was just working mornings, so that it would come easier next week when I'm back to full time paid work and I wouldn't then have to spend all weekends catching up on what should have been done daily. The weekends would then have given me time for more MADs and other flying. It didn't happen . I can't undo that - but I can get on top of the dailies as much as possible today (do a bit/ sit a bit tends to work for me - teeny tiny baby steps are better than no steps at all) as tomorrow I'll be going round to my parents' house and sitting with Mum from 8am til 7pm (ish) to give Dad a break. He goes off with DS kart racing (DS races, Granddad mechanics - he's amazing for 82 years old!) and he can forget 'home' knowing that I'm there.

    Mr Google says it's going to rain here from 11am til 5pm today so washing will have to be dried indoors. That's a shame - I love hanging out washing. But, do you know? no-one has told NN that you're supposed to use matching pegs on items of clothing hung on the line I have tried not doing so, but it just doesn't look right. (and tongue is firmly in cheek regarding NN, I do know it's just one of my foibles )

    I hope the sun is shining where you are.

    If it's any consolation, I too had something sat on me this morning - but in my case it was a very heavy brindled-and-white dog.

    Today has been spent the day taking ds1 back to uni with his belonging, meeting a old friend and daughter for a cuppa as she is studying in the same city. Ds1 came back with me although when my satnav took me past the cinema which his gf was visiting he decided to join her. Traffic wasn't good but we made it safely.

    Flying: I wiped a few student work surfaces and hung their bathmat up to dry.i may wash up before bed or I may wake the snoring sofa up to do it.

    Morning all. Hope you're all ok today.

    I seem to be avoiding the showers so far. Have already done a short dog walk, it's pouring down now.

    Flying wise, I've cleaned up a wet patch that was greeting me when I woke up. Don't know which of the mutts did it as they both acted guilty, but they could have chosen the hard floor instead of the carpet.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Took DD's stuff which wouldn't fit into her car to Uni. Have three loads on line; 4th spinning now. DW run. Sink filled with water; kettle boiled to add hot.
    Plan to get the house looking less grim today. First job, after breakfast, will be the rabbit hutch though, as I like it to air dry.

    Any particular requests for this week's lists?
