    Weekly Flylady Thread 9th April 2018 8th Apr 18 at 8:44 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 Valli 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!!

    Fluttering gently today and tomorrow; Buddy and Indi are still here so there is no way in Hel I am emptying the kitchen cupboards. I'd have to wash every single item after it had been sniffed/licked/trodden on by dogs, so it can wait til I'm between bookings.

    DD dropped off in the rain. She will be very wet and smelly when I pick her up at the end of the week.

    Popped into the nearby c00p for bread and milk in a bid to avoid going to a bigger supermarket and overspending. Just realised that the milk date is tomorrow. I'm not an avid date person, but Grrrrr.

    Birthday present wrapped for delivery later in the week. I just need to find the card.

    Towels now in the WM, soup being slurped before I attack the kitchen.

    I vacuumed yesterday. I may as well not have bothered. It's covered in Indi-hair again today; and the boys have got the lounge looking like an explosion in a toy factory.

    Mr LW has gone out to get a new rear windscreen wiper for the car; I don't think it counts against us for Scrimpers though; it's a very necessary item imho, and the existing one is worn out.

    So..

    DW emptied and refilled

    Then I will decide whether to declutter some more from the kitchen, declutter DD3's room or SOFAADFA (WoW and knitting are feeling VERY appealing!!)

    Grass cut with shears. Too wet for the mower but hopefully it will dry out a bit more and I'll be able to do a proper job.

    Afternoon my lovelies I've done the hoovering through the house and degrotted the cat tray while DH was at a drs appointment. Folded up clean washing from the maiden and put a fresh load on it to dry. I even sorted out the odd veg to make soup.

    The poor lamb has a mouthful of ulcers etc and after my nagging he took himself off to see the Dr. Well after being out for over an hour.. (the Drs is only 5 mins away..) .I thought appts were only 10mins..the poor lamb has come back with a diagnosis of oral thrush.

    He hates this methotrexate stuff as it throws up a new problem every few months. Although he is looking forward to being able to taste things again once the thrush/ulcers and sore throat has gone away. The scary thing is he can't even get a painkiller if the chemist knows hes on this drug, he has to go to either the Dr's or hospital if he can't get an appt. And here was me thinking we would get our lives back this year..wrong!!!!

    I've been stitching to relax me and it has actually helped

    Hugs to everyone xxx

He lately wonders if he is lactose intolerant, as he feels even sicker if he has cereal for breakfast, or yoghurt. So I g00gled it and surprise surprise there are reported incidents of MTX bringing about lactose intolerance. Which could be tricky if that turns out to be the case, as the tablets contain lactose. I hope Dave begins to feel better soon.

    thanks for lists. After the weekend away at the motorbike rally, at least the house hasn't got untidy but we are tired and have a busy week ahead with lots of visitors, my birthday, visits to relatives as well as work (for me). So flying will be mainly by Mr N and on a need-to basis e.g. changing sheets between visitors. However one of the latter is my mum and she's not averse to housework (I didn't inherit that trait) so maybe we'll fly together. Rather hoping for gardening weather, it's horrible today.

    Went to gym this morning.
    Had visit from solar salesman here to discuss add-ons for our system but decided that as he'd never seen bills as low as ours for a house the same size, nothing would be worth the investment.
    One load washing done.
    One large list of visitors/activities/meal plans in progress.
    One report about to have final check and be sent off.
    Remember...a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

    Good luck to all job hunters.

    Welcome tiredwithtwins

    I started the day well with my phonecall to HMRC but have not really kept up the momentum.
    - WMx2, short TDx2, everything now folded and hung on airer in bathroom to dry properly.
    - Sorted out appointment with building society on Thursday and did a bank transfer to pay the carpenter tomorrow.
    - Took Rosie to the vet (just a quick check and nails clipped), then for a walk on the hills as a reward for being super good.
    - Listed another item on eee-by-gum, and have got watchers on the first 3 items
    - Made lunch for self and OH, took coffee into lounge, switched on iPlayer to watch a programme that I missed yesterday and promptly fell asleep for an hour
    - Cleared space for the carpenter to walk.
    - Fielded 2 phonecalls from the carpenter, whose ears must have been burning!
    - Solved the problem of having a useful wall socket covered by a cupboard and sent DH to @rg05 to collect a switched extension lead (we've got about 6 such leads, but the only switched one is used for the Christmas tree lights).
    - Booked Rosie onto an introductory scent work course from the end of the month.
    - Cooked tea.

    Now about to take Rosie for another walk, but it will be a short one because (a) it's raining and (b) I need to do some work on my essay

    Kitchen list pretty much done and it looked better for a couple of hours. I did turn out and wipe the worst cupboard. Meals will seem to have to involve honey. A lot of honey.

    Dinner cooked, kitchen tidied again, bins out for the morning. I've measured up two windows for new blinds, so I'll have a look into sorting at least one of those this week. It's a full day at work tomorrow, so the paperwork which didn't get done today might not even make it to tomorrow's list either.

    And it's still raining.

    Two Very important words. INJECTABLE METHOTREXATE.

    Yes, MTX can knacker the ability to deal with dairy for a while. That's what Lactofree Milk and coconut or Soya yoghurt exist for.

    Make sure the folic acid is being taken on the other days (mine is 6/7), good excellent dental hygiene, but the best reduction in side effects is through stabbing it in your leg/stomach fat rather than having it put into your stomach.

    It's more expensive, but if the side effects are becoming intolerable, they're more likely to prescribe it.
    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
