    Weekly Flylady Thread 7th October 2019 6th Oct 19 at 8:15 PM
    Thank you, Valli, for last week's thread.

    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!
    Please do remember we have to abide by MSE rules; each post should, ideally, include some mention of flying.


    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.

    Please follow the forum rules 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 donít 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 asier.
    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- thatís 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!!

    Sorry if I've been exceptionally quiet lately, unfortunately I'm going through a suspension at work and have been accused of something I haven't done, it concerns photos apparently - but nevertheless it has knocked me for six big time. And I have withdrawn a fair bit while I handle this as best as I can. But do believe me I am totally innocent in this and I am having to prove my innocence in all this...and it's proving quite hard.

    I just wanted to put why I had been quiet, and obviously this hasn't been put on FB for obvious reasons.

    Aww Natty - how stressful for you. If you're in a union do contact them for support.

    I'm working f/t again this week so minimal flying in Villa Valli.

    Still it means I'll have extra to spend in Dec. Bonus.

    Thanks for the thread. How awful for you Natty. Sending support your way.

    Full work week planned plus various other errands and appointments. Dentist and hygienist visit first thing in the morning then work after that. Suspect this may be an off list week again for me but will do what I can.

    Hugs to any who need or want them. Sending flylady vibes out to those in need too x

    Thank you for the new thread. I will do my best to keep up with the lists this week.

    My knee is almost back to normal so I managed to take Rosie for a walk in the woods this afternoon, then picked and cleared away the runner bean and tomato plants and mowed the lawn. Phoned DS2 this evening: his Crohn's is playing up again

    The WM repair man is coming between 9 and 1 tomorrow, so we must get breakfast early

    Here's wishing everyone a good week ahead x

    Belated birthday hugs to ASB

    A slow but very productive day today. The kitchen decluttering has progressed with:
    - all baking trays taken out of their slot, sorted with several icky ones disposed of and several decent but unwanted ones put on freecycle. Slot (2 narrow shelves between range and drawers) cleaned. Kickboard below it cleaned.
    - ditto cupboards full of serving dishes, jugs, bowls and goodness knows what. Lots chucked/recycled/charity etc.
    - have started on food cupboards. Had radical re-think on the location of items between 4 cupboards. Will need major tetris game but hopefully will be worth it.
    - juicer I put on freecycle collected by happy new owner.
    - collection of excess baking trays, cookie cutters etc being delivered hopefully to new home tomorrow.
    Generally I'm starting to feel a bit 'lighter' with the decluttering, looking forward to more space for fewer items, although towards the end of the day I was pacing round the kitchen feeling anxious and emotional - yes I know it's only kitchen clutter, but some was my grandma's or were items I'd grown up with!!

    Also did a bit more work on my new report template.

    Have a good week everyone.

    Drying company coming to check on progress, hopefully for the last time!
    Fold laundry plus do another load
    Flutter about and tick some things off the list
    Full day of paid stuff
    Out this evening for a couple of hours, DH also out so beef stew taken out of freezer, we can heat and eat separately this evening.

    Have a good day all, hugs and posivibes being sent to those in need x

    My goodness Natty, how terrible.

    Do you work in a 'regulated' activity? (Children Or Adults at risk) if you do, don't resign during the investigation, no matter how bad it gets. They will have to do a DBS referral, but the investigation will stop, so even harder to prove your innocence.

    Happy belated birthday ASB

    I am struggling with life a bit at the moment. I'm feeling drawn very thin by all of my commitments - non individually are enough to cause issue, but clump them together and I realise I haven't got the capacity.
    Also, trying to reduce my screen time, but that has knock on effects with keeping up with things here. Arghhh why is life so complicated? But, I do count my blessings, especially when I hear of what some of your lovely people are enduring. Prayers and thoughts with you all.

    My washing basket is empty - woooohoooo all the wet stuff is hung up and all the stuff that has dried has been put away.
    House is surface tidy, but I could do with a blitz on rooms - kitchen and bathroom should be reasonably easy to sort. Maybe a job for this evening (or afternoon of Pickle will watch a film)

    Off out to run some chores now.
    Back later.

    Spoons on the side, help yourselves

    Wish.

    Glad you had a lovely birthday asb. Hope you get your GP appointment quickly - they're like gold dust round here.

    First thing on the list has been completed: washing machine repair man turned up at 8.30 and has been paid for telling me that the machine is fine apart from a bit of a limescale problem (we're in a soft water area so it really is only a little bit, and easily dealt with - I've already started the empty wash cycle with the descaler), but if it fails again it will be a problem with the control board and I shall have to get a new machine. I can't grumble - this one was in the house when we moved here over 6 years ago, and it was already a few years old then.

    So my list for today says:
    - WMx3
    - bathroom/study levels 1 and 2 - but I have no cluttersome bottles in the bathroom so that's one less item to do
    - sort 2 birthday presents
    - finish clearing my desk and sorting the piles of papers on top of the filing cabinet and the spare bed
    - pot up the geraniums and fuschias from the patio pots for overwintering before I ...
    - ... have my nails done
    - send out Toddler Group reminders (Harvest Festival this week)
    - update my work record and reflection journal
    - Rosie's walk
    - early tea because (for a change) it's DH who has a safeguarding training session this evening
    - catch up with friends at the Old Wives' Group.

    Anyone up for joining me in a HHC?

    Sadly I'm not in a union as it's purely voluntary, although I'm seeing my boss this week to see how we proceed. Sadly I think it will be swept under the carpet and my reputation ruined.

    I must admit I thought better of them especially as it was where I did my 5year therapy treatment.

    Aww Natty - how stressful for you. If you're in a union do contact them for support.

    I havent resigned but the unit has said I wont be driving for them. I think they've swept it under the carpet and basically got rid of me. Although saying that I've asked for proof, dates and evidence etc..

    I have a meeting with my boss this week so we'll see where we proceed.

    The good news is we may be moving to Wales next year, instead of a few years. DH is going to retire/resign after his Birthday in January.
