    Weekly Flylady Thread 5th February 2018 4th Feb 18 at 7:02 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!


    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

    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 don!!!8217;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!!

    Not as much flying done as I would like today..
    That said this is my long week at work and it takes a day or two to recover (only to be back at work!) This improves slightly for a little while after having my quarterly B12 jab.. Self care and pacing myself also helps... That said, being a carer for my mum also adds to the mix!
    Have managed to s/s kitchen
    Tidied up paperwork & filed where necessary.
    Will attempt more in morning though have errands to run and will need 1/2 hour zzzz before shift till 9pm
    Thank you for keeping me focused and giving me lists to work with, it's a real help with my fog brain

    Gentle hugs for all the splatted flybabies - I know when I was little my parents despaired at the amount of tights I went through as I fell so often and always managed to make a hole in at least one of the knees Thankfully, I didn't ever land on my face.

    Donnajt sorry about the pain and lack of sleep - rubbish isn't it when you eventually drift off only to be woken by an alarm.

    Feeling like my old arch nemesis Anxiety is starting to creep back so need to try to keep myself busy today whilst still being kind to myself. The potential horse I thought I had found is not right for me as gives my back twinges due to me having to keep kicking him on so will have to let him go. Woke up countless times in the night feeling sick, tight chest and am now so tired with a stinking headache. Going to do some flying and see if a bit of exercise helps plus I'll feel better if the house looks a bit better. Got WM and DW on already.

    Anyone fancy a HHC at 9.45?

    Do you know what is causing the anxiety? I hate waking up with the panics, with mum being in hospital I am predicting an anxious night, hope the anxiety eases quickly x shame about the horse, fingers crossed the right one comes along soon

    Just back in. Poor DS fell over in the playground and splatted his nose. Lots of blood, tears and upset but a small packet of Haribo eventually calmed him down!

    Took elderly relative food shopping and to do some admin jobs, dropped her home and walked the dog. Got 20 mins admin to do for DH now then will make an early lunch. Afternoon priority is ebaying x

    I just got back from collecting Dot.. she has smashed her glasses into her face, grazed both knees and her forehead and badly bruised her thumb. I am utterly boiling but I guess the extra walking is good for my lardy arris!

    I had run the DW and both WMs before I left though.

    When I was younger (about 10) I had to have four teeth out. My mum got me a special 'pad' from the hospital (or so I thought, she was a nurse) to cover my bleeding mouth, then wrapped a scarf round. Years and years later I twigged - it was a sanitary towel - the scarf was to hide it.

    Pigpen - if anyone can, it's you! I think any GP would take your worries seriously.
    LW - I found something that works if we need to give our hound a tablet - dunk in cold KFC gravy. It's so gloopy that it completely covers the tablet and he's swallowed it before he even knows what it is. Not quite so easy with the cats.

    Worked later than expected, home to prep tea for DS2 and OH before dropping DS1 off for his lift and tutoring for an hour. Pleasant surprise - 17p for a tub of Bombay potatoes RTC at Mr T's, which made a nice tea with the rice the family had left me. Now I'm flopped on the sofa and don't want to move.

    Hm, from my predicted 'today' plan written last night:
    - sort out tops Had a quick look; decided sorting them wasn't best use of my time
    - check through clothes for hol to see if anything needs washing, mending or as a last resort, buying er....tomorrow..
    - finish and send at least one more report offOne done and sent. Another will be finished if I sit here for another hour or so. The final one has been started.
    - take car in for serviceOn the way home I bought our train tickets to get to Heathrow for Friday, and got some cheap hiking shoes which are pretty much like trainers for the hol.
    - do more of my coursesThink I've done enough to be able to put them on my CPD log, as I need to send off renewal for my assessment certificate before I go away.
    - dance classSadly, even after doing a bit of practise, Mr N and I decided it wasn't best use of time.

    Also:
    - emptied DW
    - put away a basket load of clean clothes
    - downloaded a load of (mainly free) books onto Kindle
    - wrote a list for Mr N to go to Mr T as he was going anyway to get flowers for his mum's birthday.
    - cancelled Friday am's Body Attack as at the rate I'm going, I'll still be packing (we get the train at lunchtime Fri!)

    Tomorrow:
    - get to gym early enough to have a bit of a run on treadmill before I have eyelashes and eyebrows 'done'. Go to Mr T on the way home as Mr N remembered something he forgot today.
    - finish and send the last report
    - sort out all electrical leads, chargers etc to take away
    - do a car insurance quote as you get a couple of on TCB for it. If desperate for time, we can just let it automatically renew as the quote isn't too terrible, although I usually manage to knock it down a bit.
    - pack!
    - Put my CPD on the system, transfer money and renew my assessment cert. This is the first year I've not had to send them a sample report, which is great - we have to renew every 3yrs and it usually involves copious amounts of checking, re-checking, comparing it with what they recommended last time (they check to see if you did the changes). New ruling is on 4th renewal you just give evidence of CPD.

    I'm sure there is loads more on one of my lists, let alone the fly list.

    Get well vibes to all the tripping toddlers. I managed to jump off 3 basement stairs and fall splat on a concrete floor when I was about to change schools. Arrived at senior school with a black eye and broken nose.

    Mumof2 sorry the horse didn't work out.

    Hi ladies - just lurking this week as I'm decorating like a demon. Tiled and grouted the cooker splashback yesterday and I'm very pleased with the end result....

    Anyway - Hugs for all (especially splatted Flykids) X

    Morning all, sounds like lots of folk are nursing injuries or illnesses at the moment - hope you all feel better soon.

    Not done much flying over the past few days, was baking for a slimming world taster on Tues and then at said taster yesterday. Will be catching up on things tonight though, so task list is:

    Throw out the dying plant and give up on ever being able to keep a plant alive in this flat
    Sort out fridge - with taster last night and veg box turning up while I still have some veg left, it's a bit of a mess. Stir fry needed tonight to finish up the last of the old stuff!
    Meal plan
    Look at ignored Tues, Wed and Thurs flying tasks and decide what's possible today

    Decided as I have missed the 'sweet spot' of pre 7.30 traffic I'll hang on until 8.40 which is when it gets reasonable again and be 5 mins late. Cuppa tea I think.

    Thank you mumof2, got back from hospital and had a 30 min powernap, just walked dog and now settled with a bowl of carrot fries to watch Silent Witness

    Do you know what is causing the anxiety? I hate waking up with the panics, with mum being in hospital I am predicting an anxious night, hope the anxiety eases quickly x shame about the horse, fingers crossed the right one comes along soon

    Very glad it's the LR today as we have a financial adviser coming this afternoon and this is where he'll be sat!! Will do my best to have it looking nice.

    Visits to Cornwall, me, me

    Hey, you got the skiing sorted - great news.

    Hope the relocation goes well.

    Skiing is not to Canada. They took forever to say no so we lost all our money. Weve booked a last minute discount deal to France rather than sit here for the second week of the holiday feeling sorry for ourselves.
