    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!!

    Wading through paperwork, making phone calls and generally trying to clear a horrendous backlog. The To Do list seems to grow at a greater rate than the time I've got.

    The chap came to fit the vinyl flooring in the shower room and a bit of the passage outside it and went away again when he realised he couldn't do it without 'the boy' who's at the hospital in agony having a tooth dealt with. *sigh*

    Here's inflation for you. I worked for a solicitor in 2003/4 doing the accounts a few hours a week. The bill for a doing a housesale conveyance was 200 + VAT. I've just got a few quotes this morning for the chalet and the lowest is 495. Wow!

    Aww Donna so sorry x

    Well - an interesting 24 hours. DS went for his regular hospital treatment on Friday and picked up an infection in hospital which didnt manifest itself until Sunday. Cue a very frightening rush to hospital yesterday with him very poorly. However, he is recovering well and home, in bed, bored and grumpy.

    Lots going on with my job. Madly busy juggling the trillion and one other things happening in my life but I am feeling strangely positive.

    Pigpen flinging is definitely very therapeutic!

    Not much flying done here, other than a load of washing in which will have to go over the airer.

    Iona that scentwork sounds fab; I think anything that gives a dog chance to use his/her brain is wonderful.

    Buddy & Indi have been collected *sob* and Mr LW is currently removing doghair from the carpets with the Dys0n. I don't like the empty gap where their box of toys was. Silly, innit?

    Donna as Madam Mim (and possibly others) have said grieve in your own way. I still burst into tears suddenly because I miss my sister so. Cancer sucks. Mind you I was incapable of cleaning my own home - though I did lots of flying at work..

    Been a stupidly mad day. Have pointed out that there aren't enough hours to keep up with my 'new' job.

    WAULTD (plastic stuff mainly) after my tea; (DD made salmon risotto yum); this morning I did WM, TD and DW.

    Going to iron now.

    Evening all - the return to school was a-ma-zing (for me, at least )

    Sending big hugs and condolences to you Donna. What awfully sad news Take things easy for a while xxx

    Had my final PTSD reprogramming session today and have been declared sane lol. My counsellor says I've made tremendous progress and I have to say I am feeling much more positive and am looking forward to the coming year to effect the changes I have decided on. Thank you all for listening to my whinging and moaning. I promise to remain as happy as possible from now on!

    Carrot cupcakes baking ATM...smell delicious. I'm gonna get brownie points when the boys spot them in the morning I also made some rather tasty chicken enchiladas for dinner, complete with HM chipotle sauce, which worked out about a third of the cost of a jar, so polished halo for that too! I'm such a domestic goddess *blush*

    Right, cuppa and some TV.

    darn it... I just commented how well my dishwasher is surviving... bother.... jinxed it, it's going to die!!! Me and my big fat mouth!!

    Smalls all away for the night.. food scoffed.. soup and 2 apples... I feel like a freaking hellbeast!

    Washing away.. not full loads yet.
    DW nearly a full load

    Tomorrows lists include defrosting the fridge... I am fluffed off waiting for OH to do it. I am also shifting his shed shtuff to the shed.. I have a pillar drill in my kitchen... because we all need one of those don't we? I have washing to fold and put away and the dressing up stuff on the line should be adequately aired to go in the dryer and be whizzed to school because these have no interest in any of it. I want to sort the plastic tub collection which is growing exponentially and spiling out into my life..

    DD2 helpfully took the box of unwanted jars and stuff. My larder unit is looking quite empty.. I love it.

    Morning everyone. Hope you're all ok this morning, very quiet on here but I expect some of you are getting littlies ready for school.

    Hopefully I will just do gardening today. It's not raining at the moment.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Morning.

    ((Hugs)) Donnajt xx

    Yesterday was super busy and full, so no flying at all. Apart from about an hour at home (when obviously I ran the wm again), I was out from 7.30am to 10.30pm. And wouldn't you think that would help me sleep - definitely no!

    So today is my day off. DD is still away, DH just had to get up and quietly go to work. At 6.30, the bedroom lights go on and he clatters about. And clatters some more. Then off he goes - whispering goodbye like I would have slept through - and proceeds to open and slam shut the garage door. Multiple times. At least that's what it sounded like! Unfortunately my guag seems to have got washed away, so I have managed to idle away the last couple of hours, apart from changing DD's bedding and putting that through the wm. It now replaces the 2 day old washing that has just about managed to get dry.

    Paperwork to be sorted first, as I have left it on the kitchen table to annoy me sufficiently to clear it.

    Pigpen - we have a workmate in our house that came in from the shed and has now become part of the family. I even have to dust it at times....

    Morning

    Donna hugs xx

    Went to visit ex SIL yesterday she is not in the best of health and is in a
    nursing home, (she is 35 years old than me) she seemed happy to see me.

    So far today

    I have a 'double glazing window man' in my kitchen and dinning room, replacing two windows, so I have shown him where they are and left him to it. Seems in involve a lot of banging at the moment, and removal of old panes of glass...............I will venture back in a bit to see the new windows.

    Kitchen was clean and tidy, but may need re doing

    Twinkle is determined to be a pita today too it appears.. she is a nightmare.. if I sit down the claws at my legs and screams at me.. if I put her on my lap she demands feeding and I am not spending all day sat feeding an almost 2 year old... if I move to do anything she follows me around screaming at me. Thankfully I can usually get her down for a nap about 12. She is permanently in my personal space touching me and screaming.. if she just chattered thats fine.. but the whining and screaming is so utterly draining and really annoying!! I was all touched out before I got out of bed this morning so we aren't going to have a fun day.

    Rubbish weather out there again so I can't even kick her into the garden

    OH away to college.. DS3 is in at 1 and everyone else already gone.. not sure if DS2 is in today or not.. he usually does 12-5 on a Wednesday.

    I'll finish my cuppa and have a look inside a kitchen cupboard before I lose motivation.. I'm supposed to be decorating DD3's room this week.. oops!! lol.... there's always next week! I need to buy plastic sheeting and filler and can't afford them until Friday, I'm not just slacking.. plus there is noone to watch naughty while I crack on.

    Bit late here but I'm in - not at the yard today and done all my paid stuff so going to see what I can do from the list. As much as I'd love to do the deep clean I have to be sensible; not even been doing Level 1s for weeks so need to just give myself a chance here!

    I haven't read all the posts but hope all OK - hugs, sticks, spoons to all x

    Piggers I wish, it seems the seal on the double glazing has gone, there is a 'cloud' and condensation on the inside of the double glazing, it seems it is quite common in older glazing, which means the rest will go, another 8 are showing signs as I asked him to go round and check before leaving, my guess is the whole house will need re doing in the next 3 ot 8 years or so........best get saving some how, either that or move!

    Sleep decluttered

    Unsure how much counts as Flying, but here's today's stuff:
    • Dead inkjet cartridges posted off to Dogs Trust (they can recycle them and get the benefit of the payment).
    • Mobility scooter service done; Mr LW dealt with the engineer for me. 75 decluttered.
    • "Hot wash" done in the WM: a gazillion hankies, half a gazillion tea cloths including the one I use just for doggy bowls, bath towels and flannels; can't dry outside today, so the bungalow now resembles a Chinese laundry as I'm avoiding using the TD function unless I have to.
    • Dys0n filters washed.
    • Shepherd Spy made - this will do tonight's tea and tomorrows as a "ding dinner" as Mr LW is seeing the consultant tomorrow afternoon and we probably won't get home til gone 17:00 (he's asked me to go with him. )
    • Cherry crumble made.
    • Nut loaf made for the freezer - might as well have the oven full.
    • Mr LW has washed up for England.

    LameWolf I'd say that all counts as Flying! Been a busy day for you.

    Kazwookie yep, it's quite common for windows to go like that I'm afraid. Our living room window was an aluminium framed double glazed unit and the seal went in that so I know just what you mean about it being wonderful to be able to look out of the windows!

    Gathered together all the recycling and helped J peel veg for roast chicken we're having tonight. Z is at her BFs this evening so we won't need to worry about feeding her - his Mum is a good cook, unlike me!! I didn't get to finish the rest of the flying as I'm afraid I fell asleep but never mind, done a lot today. Just about to go out and trim the hedge to make sure our green bin is full up ready for collection tomorrow; we have a corner plot and the hedge grows like mad this time of year.

    I forgot to mention, I defrosted the freezer after the boys left yesterday; it was all iced up.

    I have them coming again for 17 nights in July, so I shall need to find space for nearly 14kg of their frozen BARF food!!

    laptop keeps switching itself off - needs replacing but it'll have to wait til next month as I bought a new bed for DS yesterday - including mattress and headboard. If I disappear that's why - but I'll be back!

    Post it quick before it switches off - is buying a bed flying? I went into a proper shop to do it
