    Weekly Flylady Thread - 14th May 2018 13th May 18 at 7:00 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'
    WUDUPA ~ washed up, dried up, put away
    WUALTD ~ washed up and left to dry
    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!!

    Morning ladies.

    Big, squishy hugs for all those in need. Sorry to read so many of us are having a tough time

    I feel mean reporting my improved situation, so I'll quickly say DH is loving his new job, we have had lots of friends and family visiting which has been fab, the house is coming on well and yesterday DH was advised what his bonus would be next month

    I did do the ironing yesterday, if not much else

    Morning all.

    Ironing bits cleared, washing is out on the line. Today is my day off, so how come I'm going into work again?

    Dizzy - don't apologise, it's lovely to hear your positive news.

    Have good days all, and more supporting hugs to all those in need. X

    Morning all. Hugs for those struggling and glad that things are going well for you Dizzy.

    HB - whenever I have had dogs that do not understand recall, I pretend to run away from them. They usually run back to you then.

    From the list yesterday I hoovered the bed and changed the bedding. I also cut the grass out back and did the dailies.

    Today I need to try to -

    Keep up with dailies
    Do paperwork and make phone calls
    Clean HSL
    Hoover through
    Look at list

    Have a great day everyone.

    Gah... hayfever drugs snaffled.. my nose and eyes are streaming and I can't stop sneezing..

    OH sent to shop with Twinkle to get bread, milk and bananas.. She was howling the street down when he left.. Girls were up and ready early so they got dropped at breakfast club.. thirds won't kill them!

    WM's run through a super hot smell killing wash last night.. and have had 2 rinses now so should smell nicer.. Stripping the girls beds today.. they haven't been done in a while.

    I shall go make a cuppa and boss OH to load the DW when he gets back while I wash my hair, which is vile I just had no time yesterday.

    I will have OH remake the girls beds when he gets back from work .. not straight away I'm not an ogre!

    I might have him put a few bits in the car to drop at the tip on the way home while I think on it.. we need 3 or 4 runs so he may as well crack on with the first .. 4 tables, a chair, a dead BBQ for starters..

    Right.. onwards...

    Have a lovely day all.. Jojo.. hope his day #2 is less stressful for you! Dizzy... its lovely to hear not everyones life is going to the dogs.. don't be sorry! Hugs to all in need xxx

    It's so lovely to hear that things are much happier in the Dizzy Household. You deserve it.

    Thanks Jazee. I know that if I went and sat in the car, indicating playtime was over, he'd join me - he's got separation anxiety! However, what worries me is him escaping from the house and ignoring me in a dangerous situation, so I want instant recall. He's an 'I'll just amble over there sniff that interesting piece of grass before I go and see what she wants' kind of dog.

    Two trees need the weeds removing from around them this morning, and then back to sewing before having to do some very hard work over at the chalet later. Selling it is supposed to make my life easier, but as usual there's a huge amount of stuff that needs doing in order to get to where I want to be. I'm awfully tired of living like this but it's all part of Hovel to Haven. I WILL have more time to call my own.

    Relatively successful day today. I was very productive (mostly transcribing songs and designing a promo poster) and Himself made it through the morning, despite doing a good impression of a dying swan when I got home because it was very hot in the exam room - although that might have had something to do with my eventually pointing out that whilst he was fannying about moaning about being made to feel like a child by somebody in the exam hall, at the same time, I was intervening to defuse something before it got silly - he wasn't going to get much in the way of sympathy when it's one of the least stressful education jobs you can have.


    No breakfast/lunch for me today, either, but my ordering meal replacement drinks on Sunday night paid off, as they were delivered just as I was beginning to flag (got them sent to work). The latest incarnation of the most well known brand (dairy free/lactose free variants for the first time) is actually vaguely palatable and I stopped feeling hungry then. I'm not thinking of them as a magic weightloss potion, anyway, but it means that if there is nothing or a box of dry leaves again, I can avoid going woozy by the time I'm crossing an extremely busy road home. And, to be honest, there isn't much opportunity to sit down and eat without constant interruptions, so it's probably more useful to be able to neck one of them down and get on with it.

    My limit for housework is going to be making sure the bathroom is clean - having the glazed panel replaced means I can see that the frame needs a good clean and the bin needs emptying.
    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

    I've been trying to do some MADs in the back garden in the evening while the weather is Ok. I think it's making a small difference as the name suggests, but tonight I just cba. I did go out there a bit earlier and threw a few more salad and herb seeds around. All in the name of MSE of course, and trying so hard to reduce our shopping bills.

    I ended up being in work for nearly 3 hours instead of the promised 1 hour, but at least we got the job done. I had managed to dash around doing the grocery shop ( easy as the shelves were half empty) and fill up with petrol before going in. Kitchen surfaces have had about 10 million wipes today - OK maybe only 10 - and the floor has finally been mopped. A couple of hours weeding at the allotment, a quick run round downstairs with the vacuum cleaner, followed by dinner, and now I'm collapsed on the sofa, about to go and make a cuppa.

    Awesome slinky result, Piggers.

    Working tomorrow - never thought I say this, but I think it will be less stressful than being at home

    Thanks for all your thoughts and hugs - now waiting for an appt. with the mental health tea. The referral has gone through and GP has sent records to them so am hoping we won't have to wait too long . . . . . . .

    Having cleared a lot of space in various cupboards and drawers over the past year I'm now having to shove all of them full of things again. *sigh* We bought a carfull of stuff back from the chalet yesterday and it's all sort of put away bar a few bits and pieces but it's soul-destroying, it really is, because my lovely space is no longer space. And there's more to come, sadly.

    I managed to get rid of three large things yesterday to the dump and CS but there are going to be three things leaving the house every day from now on because I can't live with shifting gibble from one place to another for years again. Been there. Done that. Boring. OH is still stuck in that 'It cost money' 'It's worth money' place and I'm stuck on 'But I like it' but it just won't do any more.

    Yesterday, I blitzed the master bedroom and emptied the ironing basket (I did iron the clothes, not just tip them on the floor). Sorting out my emails now, including prices for the re-roofing of the house, which due to the chap being an old friend of DH, is about half what I was expecting

    Got the extra kids after school today, so my peace and tranquillity will be shattered just after 3pm...

    (((Hugs))) for ATB, Dancemum, Valli and Frodders.

    Sorry to hear the antibiotics aren't having a better effect, Frodders. There was always a chance your mother's confusion could have been caused by an infection.

    It sounds as though the Eurovision Song Contest will always be one of those events that rubberbands you back to that evening with your sister, Valli. It's nice to know it brings someone some happiness!

    Up at the crack of o'sparrowfart to take OH to the station and then carry on with making the whole place look welcoming for a new lodger before taking Kelpie up to the field. We've been going for weeks and his recall is no better than it was to begin with. Anyone else have a dog that simply doesn't understand what recall is? Not even for treats?

    Am going to crack out the sewing machine again now that the house looks habitable and get on with that. Bliss.

    Bedclothes blowing on the line. Rain isn't forecast but it certainly looks like it. Oh well, it can stay out there and I'll just cross my fingers. Long walk done in the name of slinky, hair washed. Sooooo hungry that I'm just quickly feeding my face before I have to go out to get DD for her dentist appointment. I'm hoping that on the way home we can pick up a birthday present that I need for the weekend so that can be crossed off the list.

    I hope the appointment that you and your mum need comes through quickly, Frodders. X

    Afternoon again! It's the calm before the storm...

    New curtains hung in the boys' bedroom as they were complaining the sun was too bright to sleep. Blackout curtains installed, so hopefully no messing about at bedtime today.

    Quick cuppa, then off to collect Tiny and Jemmie from school, then back at four for Small and Ivor after football practice. Burgers and chips planned for dinner with chocolate mousse for pudding.

    I will be having salad.
