    Weekly Flylady Thread 9th July 2018 8th Jul 18 at 9:19 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!!

    By midday I was falling asleep at the computer (hadn't had much last night - too hot) so took myself off to the sofa for an hour and a half. We've had lunch, but we have cancelled the visit to the flower show as (a) DH was only coming to keep me company and (b)it's a lot cooler and cloudier today and therefore still bearable in the study with the curtains shut, even if the sun is shining outside.

    Back to my books...

    Oh Ionafan I regularly fall asleep at the computer!

    You must get your embroidery machine out the box Pigpen!! Be lovely to do something you love doing; I've suddenly got my urge to sew back so dining table all cleared ready to cut out some shorts tonight .... haven't sewed for over 2 years so will be 'interesting'!

    Too. Hot. I have though decluttered in the lounge for a good 30 minutes (mainly so I can get to my sewing machine tonight but no-one needs to know that!). Kids will be home shortly; all tired, hot and hungry .... deep joy!

    ps chewed a frog (is that right?). Done my tax credits form for last tax year now instead of leaving it to the last minute like normal. Also tried to notify of new job for J but as he hasn't started yet they won't take it in advance so put a date in my diary. My intentions were good though

    Floors are clean. Paperwork and hotspots still outstanding as I got distracted and took the living room curtains down, sewed and washed them. House looking almost acceptable, I'm now relaxing in the garden.
    Spend less now, work less later.

    I haven't sewed for longer than that.. I do love it but I simply don't have the space to set everything up or the time to put into it.. I am not joking when I say my house is a hovel! I don't have a single flat surface!

    Hi all

    Just skimmed through. Well done JoJo.

    So, out of the door before 7am to go to the gym then straight to work. 6.5 hours paid stuff done, DS2 picked up and home to get something to eat before I go back again.

    Have rehomed a few things, wiped some splash marks off the cupboard next to the bin, put some recycling out and made our bed. The house is looking a bit unloved in places but not much I can do.

    Catch you all later x

    Interesting day at work.

    There was an official announcement half an hour before my start time.


    Apparently, there is absolutely no impact upon job security for two years. Yeah, right.
    Just how stupid do you think we are? We can count, you know.


    I'll obviously allow the prospective place to approach them for references if they decide to make an offer - because it's education, they generally insist upon having references in advance, which can be somewhat awkward if you aren't protected by the Teaching T&Cs of employment. And it means that if I'm on the receiving end of a hatchet job, they already have two effusive references to take into consideration.

    It's vaguely annoying, as by leaving, I would miss out on redundancy. But a) I might not get the post and b) when they get around to it, not only am I pretty certain they'll do it to take effect the day before I've completed another year's service and therefore cost me dosh, there will be no guarantee that there's any jobs available at the point at which they decide to do it.

    Either way, I need to be out of there. Mainly because I'm not doing a very good job of looking completely unsurprised and not in the slightest bit disappointed about any of this.

    Home from work, and melting slowly. DH has taken DD to a school meeting as I wasn't home in time, so I can flake out for a few minutes whilst deciding what delights to put on the table when they get back, and call a meal without too much effort.

    - Went to Clubbercise.
    - Came home planning to put the bathroom mats in the washing machine but Mr N had already had the same idea and done it. That prompted me to ignore the kitchen for today but do a blitz on the en suite instead, which is now nice and shiny.
    - paid cc bill
    - renewed a professional membership
    - sent a few emails
    - sorted out the rest of the post/junk etc
    - That doesn't sound much, how has it taken a day? Oh yes, I spent a lot of time on the internet looking for something else to do in London tomorrow as Mr N wants to go up to the RAF flypast and it's a bit of an effort/cost to get a train in just for a 3 minute fly. We haven't reached any decisions; may even drive to somewhere between here and Chelmsford as we aren't too close to the route the planes will take.

    We've got a few days in Buxton in a couple of weeks, mainly to go to the RHS Tatton Park horticultural show - so if anyone else is going, I'll give you a wave. Won't be fun if the weather is this hot.

    Oh well dinner on, that is next.
    Remember...a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

    Oh no - the bathroom!! Got 3 x toilets and hand basins to do plus the shower. I know I'll feel better when it's done but my second least favourite room (kitchen most least favourite) - at least the bad ones will be out of the way first. I've altered the list to this and I doubt I'll get all of it done as lots of appointments tomorrow (4) so will be pushing it:

    Scrub the loo inside and out.
    Finish with a slosh of bleach
    Clean the handbasin(s)
    Clean baths and showers
    Clean any shower screens


    Off to bed now, night all x

    Morning All,

    First things first, I have seen on the Daily thread that our lovely fellow Flylady Lamewolf is not having a good time of it at the moment. I am sure she will post when she is ready, but in the meantime LW if you're reading remember we are all here for you xxx

    I have a lot of paperwork frogs to chew today, so that is the priority. I must also book DD a haircut,I've been putting it off for so long as she hates having it cut but it really is very long now and too sweaty on her neck and back in this warm weather.

    For the first time in a long time DS has slept past 6am, hurrah! So I am enjoying a brew in peace. Will check online banking then start pottering.

    Have lovely days all xx

    As the weather is MUCH cooler today, my job from my mammoth list will be the loft, major amounts of tidying to do, hopefully some decluttering to to reduce the amount of stuff up there, this will make it easier when we eventually move.

    Happy Flying
    Wish.

    Fluttering along slowly 'Chez nous'.

    Got back from weekend away yesterday after having picked up DD2 from ferry. Took her directly for eye exam and then went to choose new glasses and sun glasses (ended up going for lunch and a pause in the middle of choosing but done with no stressful moments). Back home, WM on and kitchen cleared round and wiped so not looking too bad.

    A couple of bits ironed this morning as OH wanted a specific shirt (brand logo) so I did a few bits at the same time as it is nice and cool, there is still a pile but at least not a mountain.

    Bathrooms are a all in need of a going over so will do that this afternoon, working 10.30 - 12.00 so will go to bank and try and see pc doctor with DD2 pc whilst in town then home for lunch and can get on with stuff.

    Sorry to hear so many of you are having a hard time at the moment but don't forget to enoy the good times. Take 5 minutes at the end of the day to think about the good points in the day, and don't forget about the simple pleasures. (Easier said than done but just need to remind myself from time to time)

    Time for another coffee then shower, get dressed and put WM on.

    Unload DW whilst kettle boils.
