    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!!

    Narco I can thankfully say that DH is now getting over this side effect (thrush , mouth ulcers etc). He can now drink a cup of hot tea without wincing in pain, but we are still eating strange stuff. But strangely enough he hasn't had an aversion to dairy...at the moment!! Who knows that could be the next one with this darn MTX. Although since he's been on the injectable version he has been a bit better but still gets some of the horrible side effects. I just wish the fatigue wasn't so prevalent. There are some days he can come home and feel quite bouncy and other days he only has to do something so minor and he's fast asleep. But it does help that he only does three days travelling to London and the rest of the time works from home where he can doze off in the chair at his desk if he needs to. But because he takes his jabs on a Thursday evening, and he only really feels human again on the Tuesday when he goes back to work, we hardly go anywhere now. And one of the main things I've noticed is that he's had to give up driving during that time too..thankfully I can drive although i dread to think what would happen if I didnt..

    JoJo thank you for the advice re the folic acid, but weirdly DH only has to take his the day after his MTX injection..he doesn't take it any other time. Although I did find out that if he took it every day bar one, he wouldn't get so many side effects but as his consultant only told him to take it one day a week that's what he's sticking to.

    Happy Birthday for today Narco, hope you have a lovely one.
    Congratulations on getting the job Jazee
    Huge hugs Donna, so sorry for your loss honey.

    Good news re the weight loss, I'm not sure what, if any I've lost, but my clothes do feel looser and I actually ran up the stairs yesterday rather than stagger up them... I didn't realise I had run them until I got up the top and then it dawned on me, it was actually an amazing feeling.

    I've decluttered myself out of bed..does that count as flying..lol Actually I've tidied up the living room, washed up the breakfast things as DH had to take a conference call early so couldn't wash up as per normal. And done the doodoo run in the garden

    I am fine so long as I change it every 6 months or so.. my brain gets used to the sound and turns into a teenager and refuses to get up!! It can't be loud because it can't wake Twinkle.. but needs to be irritating.. like a squeaker or a buzz.. I am usually awake a couple of minutes before the alarm anyway but I've had a few really disturbed nights so I was really tired.. but I shall keep the nuclear siren in mind for when Twinkle is moved out... scheduled for the first day of the summer holidays.. 7 weeks to get used to the 4 sleeping together should be fine I hope.

    DW emptied and the few dirty breakfast bits put in.

    Away to get dressed and have OH dress Twinkle.. the other 3 are deposited already.

    Wow! Quiet on here again today! You must all be flying like mad women

    I'm all filed out. I've sorted my craft stash too. Back aches but it is much, much better. I have rediscovered several lost items, which is very exciting. And, best of all, I have a huge bag and a box to offload donate to Tiny's preschool.

    Just flopped onto the sofa for a few minutes and have caught the start of Ladies' Day on TV. Not really a racing girl, but admiring some wonderful outfits!

    Off to soft-play after school to wear out the boys. Meeting a friend and her two there, so might get a bit of a catch-up

    Hugs all round x

    Not convinced this place is going to be tidy enough by the time Himself flies out. Especially as I'm waking up late and still feeling like I've been through the wringer.

    Ah well, review time next week. We'll see whether they have any suggestions - I still can't help but wish I could get a steroid shot, as they were remarkably effective. But reduced bone density isn't something to mess around with, I suppose [sigh].

    He's out tonight and I CBA to do anything. It probably doesn't help that I do get anxious about travelling, particularly as he freely admits that he can get lost going from the bedroom to the bathroom at night - and he's not exactly popping round the corner - so I'm trying to put the idea of at least 11 hours of not knowing he's OK out of my mind, more and more, the closer his departure gets. Unsuccessfully. Ugh.
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    having washed up before work and left the house straight I have come home, having been out for 12 hours, to a sink full of pots, a hob full of pots, a badly-stacked dishwasher - also full of dirty pots so

    I AM ON STRIKE

    DDs home from Uni; DS is on reduced hours and has been in all day. Not good enough is it?

    I am NOT happy.

    Hi all

    Thanks atb - just need everyone to keep reminding me that this is what I want as I am sure I will have doubts along the way xxx

    Busy day, still juggling both jobs for the time being and what with various things going on I am behind. Been out for tea which is nice. DS1 has got his stuff all over the house - I am with you Valli just too darned tired to sort it.

    Out with my ladies cycling group in the morning then cracking on with some housework. A load of washing in, might do another as it is supposed to be slightly sunny tomorrow.

    You can usually track flights on the air line websites if that will help at all? At least you will be aware of delays etc.

    Bedtime for the gremlins.. I am shattered.. and a busy day tomorrow too.

    I know (but thank you). I can imagine myself tracking the damn thing for the entire time. And completely freaking out if it disappears for a moment, as things tend to do when crossing into US airspace and upon their final approach - what can I say except I'm a geek who finds the flight and shipping trackers fascinating?
    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

    Thanks for all your good wishes. A good time was had by all , got home from musical all - including my 86yr old mum - singing "is this the way to Amarillo" . Just polished off cheese, biscuits and cake so minimal slinking going on. Racking brains to think of anything resembling flying. Um, nope.

    I can see the word “polished”....looks like flying to me

    Forgot to switch alarm off. Doh
