Many congratulations round - do you know that you are amazing? xx
Accounts came back yesterday and will hopefully be received kindly at meeting this evening.
Car came back yesterday and has to have a new tyre asap; it also failed its MOT on windscreen wipers, which I was not at all happy about. They have been replaced and it has passed at the second attempt. Glad to have my own car back: the courtesy car was much longer in the nose, making it difficult for me to judge distances from other vehicles etc, but I returned it unscathed.
- DH has a face-to-face appointment with the dietician at the horse piddle (his first for 2 years) at the - for him - unearthly hour of 9.00. I have to take him because he needs a wheelchair to cover the distance from the car park to Outpatients (you have to be fit to go there!)
- I have things to do in town centre, at 2 banks and W!1k0
- I must get car tyre fitted (or appointment for same)
- I must watch the safeguarding film
- I'd like to finish cleaning upstairs (could be wishful thinking!)
- Rosie will get a walk
- the church council meets at 7 pm
and I shall need to find some meals.
((((Hugs)))) spoons and sticks all round - and thank you all for being there to keep me sane xxx
I first raised my head above the flylady parapets and posted on 12th July 2010 - but I was on and off the wagon for years before becoming a regular poster. I think the American flylady is more Stepfordy as you have to put your shoes on to fly there. 🤔
ETA. Thank you iona xx I'm just me. 🙂. Albeit me with less stuff and more floor thanks to my flylady brethren's support. 😊
I can always do pictures of my hoarder hovel if anyone thinks we are Stepfords.. I will never be a Hyacinth!! I am Stig of the Dump.
Everyone brushed and hoofed out.
Electrician guy messaged back as the loo he 'fixed' isn't filling up.. (He does plumbing bits too I do not have an electrified loo which executes people if they sit on it.. ) so he is bobbing back later..
I need to whizz Henry about int he back room and list more gubbins.. I don't think I sold anything overnight.. nope.. so nothing to package but I can list more.
TD needs emptying to upstairs and the laundry bringing down..
Cats are fed..
I may have found another tap or 3.. I can't have the one I wanted for 2 years because that has been spoiled for me so I have been looking for an alternative one.. I have specifications.. boiling water, flex hose and black.. nothing too hard you'd think!!!
Back in a bit.. when I have shopping for 10 days.. xx stay strong and flappy xx
Thank you Honey Bear
The pile of sh!te on the sofa next to where OH sits and where Squeak sit on the other sofa. I have a mountain down the side of my chair which contains everything you could ever possibly need.. and my knitting. there is no excuse for it to be so bad.. but my kitchen is mopped and my bed is made.. important stuff.
Was woken at 5.15 by a veeerrryyy grumpy DS, he is such an early riser but needs more rest and I have tried EVERYTHING.. oh well, worse things to worry about!
Both kids at club until 5pm, so I can get lots done. So far, beds are made, windows wide open to air the place, kids away to school, bin put out then brought back in when emptied, chickens and ducks cleaned out, direct debit set up for Council Tax, WUDUPA.... no wonder I feel tired!
Now I am going to have some breakfast, then make a start on ebay listing. Piggers I am at £125 which I am thrilled about as it will cover the cost of DS clubs for this half term and then some.
Will no doubt be back later have fab days all xx
Bed made, clothes picked up, room aired
HHI done and put away
Banking and spending checked
DW sorted, kitchen tidied
My house is currently tidy, as long as you don't open a cupboard or drawer. (We are working on this SLOWLY, very slowly). It could certainly be much cleaner, but it has definitely been much worse in the past.
Going to look through a few more books today and see what I can clear out. And maybe look in the antique corner cabinet which I know we will be moving with us but what is in it? Bottom shelf is mainly candles, next shelf posh glasses and I can't reach the top one so will get the steps and see if there's anything to be moved on.
School rang, Dot has tummyache .. we think it may be just wind but she has no temp or anything.. school are keeping an eye on here and keeping me informed.. I do NOT need more hospital trips!
I need to order flea stuff for the fluffers and pee mats for Crazy Hazey.
Right.. shoes and shopping.. Squeak has clothes to find for tomorrows dress rehearsal
