    Weekly Flylady Thread 5th March 2018 4th Mar 18 at 6:21 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!!

    Washed up. In cold water because he switched the boiler off overnight after I'd gone to bed, so it didn't have the oomph to heat any water.

    Cleaned yesterday's grease off the hob.

    Cleaned six used teabags off the countertop.

    Removed food particles and bits of packets off the countertop.

    Put random packets that had been taken out and put on the countertop for no apparent reason back into the cupboard.

    Swept up.

    Fed birds.

    He surfaced about 1.30pm. To have a nap on the sofa.

    At 5.40pm, he yawned and suggested Sunday Dinner - mash and baked beans.

    He's just come back from the shop he was decanted to in order to find something more edible than a fracking side dish for a toddler. He started to say something about not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen cleaning it before he cooked. But stopped as he remembered seeing it spotless when he came downstairs this afternoon. So he lived to make it to the shop in a single piece.

    I have a feeling this is going to end up in a huge explosion. Mine.
    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

    Iím in sort of. We made progress through packing up today. And moved a load of furniture for the insulation people to make mess tomorrow. Thank goodness I didnít do it tomorrow morning - the muck down the back of the beds was horrific.

    So Iíve hoovered so Iím not embarrassed in front of the builders.

    On Tuesday I fly to Truro to sign for the house keys and do some express charity shopping. Iíll be back on Thursday. Hopefully I wonít have to clean down there. But Iíll be making lots of lists

    Two charity bags ready to leave the house. I need to try and get DH to cull some of his shirts.

    My biggest problem at the moment is eating through the freezer. Itís still full - even after 5 days of being stranded.

    Slinkydom - the less said the better. We brought back lots of cheese from skiing. And it was Tartiflette weather.

    Thank you ladies for the lists. I'm in as well as I can be.

    School will be back on schedule tomorrow, as will work. Lunches sorted and kitchen put to bed. DH is watching yet more "vintage" tv, I think I might scream. No - I will have a cuppa and dig the knitting out.

    Kaz - can I have some of whatever you have fed to your OH? I need to my DH to get some of whatever he is on!

    I'm in - thanks Valli I will try to stay on task for the whole week instead of losing momentum by Wednesday

    Valli - I also sobbed at CTM

    I am worried about Mum. She phoned earlier to tell me her Mon - Fri break next week has been cancelled - but she'd already told me this yesterday which is why we went to Mr T this morning (as she needed food for the week) and made plans to go to the cinema tomorrow . . . . . . . .

    Oh, and there was NO fresh milk of any sort in Mr T!!

    Kitchen is not too bad so tomorrow should be ok . . .

    Magnificent Monday - Kitchen

    Level One

    Clear and wipe worksurfaces
    Scrub down the front of units and large appliances

    Level Two
    Wipe and replace small appliances
    Clean oven and hob
    Wash windows and sills

    Level Three
    Vacuum the floor

    Evening folks

    Thank you for the listies ladies

    Valli - please add me to the Scrimpers list.

    Must admit I had the tissues out for CTM as well. Think BBC really trying to get a message out - that's two dead young ladies in about a week (other one was Nicky on the Archers)

    So pleased it's kitchen tomorrow - always great to get that out of the way and sparkly.

    Must get a shuffle on this week as quite a lot to get done.

    Need to get two cards tomorrow - one b'day and one new house. B'day card needs posting.

    Need a small top-up shop on Tuesday to keep us going to the weekend.

    We have promised to go see some friends one afternoon to have a cuppa, take a card and flowers and see their new abode.

    Want to investigate a loft ladder for DSD and maybe put it in.

    Going to Valencia for a week on Saturday, so need to do the check-ins online and get them printed, together with our accommodation details. Obviously will be packing on Friday, so need to get all hw done before that, including all the washing etc.
    I also want to get to a cs and buy a couple of books to read and leave as usual.

    Also would like to defrost big freezer and sort the large bookcase this week, if I've time, before we go away.

    So please give me a kick up the a**e if I appear to be slacking

    Valli please can you put me down for Scrimpers too.

    Dizzy I hope DH gets good news about the job. J had an interview with the MOD at least 5 weeks ago and we've still heard nothing.

    Froddington hope your Mum is OK, you are right to watch out for little things like that.


    Up early as have GP at 7.30. Going to have some breakfast and get dressed then do a bit of the list before I go and then again when I get back. Small bits of snow still around but vast majority gone now thankfully.

    Valli - I sobbed my eyes out at Call the Midwide, as did DH. My absolute favourite show on television - brilliantly acted.

    I have been up since 6am, super excited that the white stuff has melted and life goes back to normal today

    DH has left his phone at home so I will be in charge of his work calls today. Kiddies are all ready for school, WM is on and I have unloaded the DW. Not expecting much of a Slinky loss this week, eaten later than usual most nights.

    Dizzy - fingers firmly crossed for your DH xx
    Lynne - I am soooo jealous, please can you pack me in your case

    Right off to mop some floors, have fab days all xx

    Got to GP, put name on booking in system and no, nothing there and told to go to Reception. Got there and said there seems to be a problem and they don't even have me down to see my Dr today. I know I booked it online so something somehow has gone wrong so turns out wasted journey. Oh well!

    Kaz, great OH on a roll!
    ATB, sounds like you've been really productive already!

    OK, rebook GP appointment then into kitchen I go.

    Morning all. Not sure how much flying will get done this week as DD2 home for the week. Will be doing her washing and have to take her to hospital for an appointment which she is not sure about. I might be quite painfull so not sure what will follow on from that. Still house was in reasonable order before we went away for the weekend (we have a holiday/2nd home nearer to where DD2 studies so go there regularly to see her or pick her up from there, saves her a 7 hour drive, we do just over 4 and she does 2 and a half).
    Very good weekend with both DDs, played board games, walked, relaxed.....
    Banking done this morning
    DW emptied
    Bed made
    WM about to go on

    Slinky challenge has not gone well, my objective was to be lighter each month than the month before, idea being that I just having to lose something was easier than having to lose x kgs which leaves me saying I didn't lose enough so failed. Start of Feb I was lighter than start of Jan, only 0.5 kg but lighter so was happy but Feb has gone horribly wrong and I am heavier than I have ever been so it's been decided next Monday I am going back to Lo Carb with avengence, I know it works well for me. Would be tricky this week as DD2 home kbut she's back studying next weekend so just OH and I and he's happy with lo carb and then he's away so I have 2 weeks where there's just me during the week. So I will get rid of some of this fat!
    Time to shower and fly

    Morning all.

    Frodders - hope your mum is ok
    Piggers - any colour will look great once its glittered up

    Thanks for the list. I am in. I can't walk the dogs today until people have been to collect my paid stuff equipment. So far I have washed the breakfast dishes, dusted the dusty bits in the LR/dining room and made the bed. I'm going to put the hoover round the house next.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Morning

    I'm here Thank you Valli for the list, and Natty for last week.

    I was hoping to have a lie-in on my day off but at 6.25 am: PING - wide awake and fretting for England. (Sorry Valli ) Why? Because I have to phone the garage to get Pip's battery sorted!!!! Heyho - I am a numb-nut, we know this

    However (to distract myself) I did find myself planning to hoover through upstairs whilst the hoover is up there (DS took it up to do his room at the weekend) AND plotting some flingage AND coming to the conclusion that if I spend 15 minutes each week day (after the paid stuff and before I fall asleep in the chair ) flying in the room listed, if not on list, that's 75 minutes a week flying. Under the murk of anxiety I have my flylady head on .

    Round 1=
    1. breakfast (I'm not missing that out today!!)
    2. get washed and dressed
    3. make the bed
    4. feed the birds
    5. put out rubbish & recycling
    6. WM x 1 & laundry shuffle
    7. DUPA pots from yesterday
    8. RING THE GARAGE

    Back later Wishing everyone a peaceful Monday.

    Rxx
