    Weekly Flylady Thread 16th April 2018 15th Apr 18 at 6:49 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'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!!

    Cuppa made.. so I shall neck that and get the next round of pans through the DW.. and then get DS3 to empty the next one.. it is so much more motivating to clean and tidy when it is already emptied

    Morning all. ATB - are you getting your eyebrows done at the dog groomers? If so, ask for the Schnauzer look!

    Up late and the dogs seemed to appreciate it after yesterday's exceptionally early start. Poppet took herself back to bed yesterday.

    Breakfast scoffed, one wash load done which will go on the line once I'm dressed, and essentials ordered online.

    Today I must finish the floors and ironing from yesterday's list,clean the bathroom and look at the list. And of course, two dogs walks.

    Have a great day everyone.

    You seem to be on a heck of a roll there, Pigpen.

    I did dusting yesterday. The shower room, the dining room and most of the sitting room. And a bit of the landing. And the kitchen. It took about two hours and I've got more to do today but it's a start.

    Time out today will be going to meet a cat at our third animal rescue centre. OH is coping with losing Devil Cat but being without one is very, very hard.

    clean stuff in the cupboard.. OH is tidying it later once everything is clean.
    table cleared
    large pan of mince and veg cooked.. thats my dinners sorted for 4 days.. need to get the SC from upstairs still for this gammon.
    2 ebay parcels ready to post.. 60 in my PP tyvm... and 3 more with 28 worth of bids so far.

    I need to bring the stuff form the line before it rains.. it is nasty out there again today.. I guess hoping for 2 half decent days was too much.

    Laundry first and then lunch.

    LW.. is it likely you aren't eating enough to lose any weight? Would something like WW or SW help? you don't have to go anywhere but they have online communities where there is a lot of support and advice and people of all sorts of abilities.. I just wonder if it is worth looking at. Bills and alarms are necessary.. like food etc.. you need them.. it is the non-vital things... like 3/4 jeans *nudge nudge point finger!!* that count.
    Originally posted by pigpen
    Thank you for the thought, but SW and WW are deffo not for me.

    I think a lot of the problem stems from when they tried me on Gabapentin; it messed with my brain something awful and put 5lb on me in less than a fortnight, which stubbornly refuses to shift.

    I know the half of it - I used to do Wii Fit when Mr LW was working; these days I never have time AND privacy to do it (both required simultaneously). I am in so much pain that everything is taking longer than it use to, plus, however lovely he is, Mr LW is underfoot. And with a tiny bungalow, it's hard to tell him to push off elsewhere.

    Lol, I did my 1-hour online exam last night, (Dog Behaviour Training Course) and had to banish him to the bedroom.... and still he came wandering in halfway through wanting a book that was on the pc desk!! *facepalm*

    Plus, I dislike eating. I find it a tiring chore and would prefer not to bother. It's worse when I've cooked; I'm sick and tired of the sight of it by then, and most assuredly don't want to eat it.

    Awww, bless; take your time; when the right cat appears to fill that cat-shaped hole in your lives, you'll know.
    Personally, I reckon Devil Cat is still there with you, just not in tangible form. x

    We have to trundle into town in a bit.
    Mr LW needs a haircut (desperately needs a haircut if we're honest) and we have to collect his meds from S/Drug.
    I have to go with him so that we can use my Blue Badge for parking; otherwise I'd stay home.
    I'll probably wheel up to S/Drug for the meds while he's in the barber's.

    LW.. I hate eating too.. moreso when I cooked.. it is so boring, but sadly a necessity. Men at mitherers.. why do they do that? Mine is a huge delay-fish.. they are just giant toddlers at heart I swear!! Will he still not get an out of the house hobby? Get him an allotment for his birthday! he can grow you some beautiful veggies! Isn't he bored sat about all day?

    Last pile of pans run through the DW

    bother.. I went upstairs and forgot the SC AGAIN!!! I Swear I am getting dafter... I shall make a special journey up there in a second.

    worksurfaces all cleared..

    I'm not trying to decide if I should wash the really gross windows so I can see exactly how filthy the outsides are.. OR .. if I should sweep and mop... I don't really want to do either.. and I need lunch first.. I have waited for that as I am expecting my fruit and egg delivery but they have usually been by now and there is no sign.

    I need to do some flingage in here too... it looks like a toy shop exploded!

    Checking in during my lunch break. Proud to report a clean and tidy boudoir with new bed linen and a completely clear floor.

    I've got a tidy dressing table and clear surfaces. Still need to fling the hoover and duster round, but I'm pleased with the results so far

    I sorted my boots and shoes not too long ago, but will have a gander after my sarnie to see if any flingage can take place.

    Oh and an hour of ironing done which has made a debt in the mountain.

    I can report the eyebrows were done at a separate establishment to the dog groomers

    Donna - have a huge hug from me xx

    I am glued to the sofa with a brew - this cold has really floored me. However, I have washed the dog bedding which is blowing on the line. And I mopped the kitchen floor so not being too hard on myself!

    I'm back from work and feel like I've been 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. Nobody else was in the office, so my morning has been....varied, shall we say? I have come home and topped up on coffee and toast so that I can carry on and face the day. I think I am best following the lists, as I cba to even think right this moment. Duster and dining room, I think. After another coffee.

    Glad to hear of delight/relief with Flykids' school admissions

    I had a lovely weekend way at the conference, with lots of German being spoken, at a place noted for the excellence of its food, so the Slinky challenge is going very badly atm. The first night away, I slept on my left side (I usually lie on my right) on two pillows which were slightly too thick and hard for me, so I have ended up with a very stiff neck. My arthritis is also playing up big time with the cold weather today, I feel so grotty that I dozed on the sofa for an hour before lunch, and I'm even going to take Rosie part of the way by car to reduce the length of our walk to the fields - she can run around by herself while I shuffle along.

    However, I can report some positive news, with flingage taking place, as the charity shop collectors came for the cot, wall unit and bag of bedding. Unfortunately they didn't want the cot mattress or the two carver chairs ("We only take sets of four!"), so DH is dropping off the mattress plus a tin of solid paint at the tip, and asking another CS about the chairs, during his trip to the bank this afternoon.

    I have just started WM load 3 of 4. I have stripped the guest bed, and the rest of the house is tidy enough to ignore for another couple of days. This essay won't write itself.

    Afternoon everyone. Hugs for Donna and anyone who needs them.

    I've had a busy morning. Two dogs walks, the bathroom is now really sparkly and I've caught up on cleaning the floors and doing the ironing.

    Next I will start on today's list.

    Somebody was twatting about so late last night (because he decided to spend the day working on a website and then attempt to do the online check in - which obviously was never going to work at the last minute, was it?) that he overslept.

    Fortunately, for the second day in a row, I managed to wake up instantly and realise he was still there. He then proceeded to stumble around and, yes, mither about making tea and my lunch. He had his phone and charger pushed into his hands whilst I blocked his escape from the room where his case was and told to get his **** together and go.

    He got to check in on time, and by the looks of online trackers, take off went to plan as well.

    I am still expecting a text the instant he's landed to say he's fine.


    I've looked at the kitchen, which is full of detritus and decided I'm buying a takeaway tonight.
    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

    Back to normal life after visitors/visiting/Easter/birthday madness. Well, as normal as I ever get - which isn't very.
    - spare room bedding washed, hung out and brought in.
    - Mum taken to catch her bus home
    - 1 report finished, checked and emailed.
    - Another report started.
    - various emails sorted.
    - Paperwork printed off for tomorrow's assessment.
    - spent too long looking at things on the internet
    - Mr N did loads in the garden
    - Filled bird feeders
    Remember...a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

    Huge (((hugs))) Donna. It takes time, longer than you'd think, so be very kind to yourself. I second Pigpen's idea of getting some ready meals and fruit in to help with making sure you've always got something you can rely on to see you through.

    Awww, bless; take your time; when the right cat appears to fill that cat-shaped hole in your lives, you'll know.
    Personally, I reckon Devil Cat is still there with you, just not in tangible form. x

    We met a lovely little chap today, but we're not the right home for him sadly. He needs a calmer household and I think Kelpie's not the right dog if he goes to a house with dogs, either. It was, however, a fabulous animal rescue organisation with a cracking reputation that matches animals to people very, very carefully.

    You're quite right, LW. The Spirit of Devil Cat lives on in our hearts. I can't bring myself to vacuum the claw marks from the dining room carpet, or the smudges by the cat flap and on the stairs by the stairgate. They'll be 'unflown' for a very long time.

    I meant to dust again today, I really did. I cleaned my shoes, the shower room, printed off complicated things because I haven't got a smartphone, and then found myself touching up the scruffy paintwork in the kitchen. Admittedly the walls have needed it for years but really, the dusting HAS to be done at some point and I made such great progress yesterday, so I'm a bit cross with myself really.
    Keeping it AF

    Well, he made it there in one piece - and remembered to let me know he had.

    I'm going to have a relatively early night and think about hitting the kitchen after work tomorrow - I've already done more than my part of the staff room rota on Monday - and let the rest of the department know that I wouldn't be doing it again this week (because I did it all last time) - it'll be interesting to see what happens tomorrow when there aren't any mugs, plates or clean cutlery. Teachers without easy access to coffee. Because other teachers think that the rota doesn't apply to them. Hmmm. Maybe I should set up a secret camera?
    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

    Morning all, lovely day here so I'm up and raring to go.

    Yesterday was a very long day, left the house at 8.30, worked straight through until 7.00 then out for an interesting evening, Cafe des langues, basically a meet up with a drink with the objective of speaking different languages with all sorts of different people. Met loads of different folks, interesting but quite hard work, got home at 10.00. So no flying done yesterday but no mess made either. I did manage to make my bed and tidy round before I went out and unloaded DW when I got in.

    At work most of today but a slightly later start and finish at 5.00 so hope to get a bit more done. Although it will need to be clean jobs this morning so I guess I had better finish the ironing and tidy up the paperwork tray in the kitchen, mainly filing.

    Hugs to all
    xx
