    Weekly Flylady Thread 6th August 2018 5th Aug 18 at 6:36 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!!

    Thank you Frizzle and LameWolf xx

    Apparently I have benign positional vertigo and I've been given pills to take to ease the symptoms. Should start to feel better in a week or so - if not go back Can self-cert til Wednesday then ring for sick note for a week. Work are going to love me! Not!

    I fed the birds. And felt as my PPC took care of the pharmacy bill,

    Hi,

    Thank you ladies for the lists. Sorry, Valli, I've only just mastered quotes, I think I might be rubbish at setting lists.

    Roundtuit - glad you've got a name for it, and hopefully the meds will sort you out quickly.

    It's a full day at work today, a few things planned for the week ahead, and then we are away at the weekend. Flying? Level 1 and anything else is a bonus this week. Why do I always think that school holidays means more flying time? You would think I would learn by now.

    My once in a blue moon check in, I need the help of flylady today to keep me motivated on what has been a day from hell so far

    Our 6 year old dog died in the night. He had not been ill so vet wants to do a post mortem to see why a perfectly fit dog should die so suddenly and in the way he did

    I have taken the day off work as had to take him to the vet etc and clean where he was. Need to disinfect everywhere and keep an eye on our other dog as he is so confused as to where his buddy is.

    DD2's belongings shifted to her new place... I now need to do a huge amount of flingage in the middle room and maybe even get all OTT and drag out a roller and spruce it up.. so sick of everywhere looking tired. I don't feel up to any of it but I cannot abide the state of the house at the moment.

    Very sorry to hear about your dog, Gilly.



    I'm sorry I didn't do the lists this week, Valli. Next time you need a stand in I'll volunteer if no-one else does.


    Still working in and on the yard, so indoor flying will have to carry on waiting.

    Shame.

    Um...I've just woken up after three hours asleep on the settee. Suppose not sleeping at all last night finally had some effect.

    Himself's about to go out and is a bit crotchety. Because I've asked him to quickly pick up something to eat from round the corner before he goes. He's not eaten and it's hot and he's probably a bit stressed at having to go on the Tube in this heat. Oh well, it's a shame when any ideas you had for an afternoon are completely scuppered by somebody else being asleep, I guess.

    I am going to eat whatever he brings back, down an energy drink and try to get on with something useful in the hope that three hours' kip doesn't harm my chances of going to sleep again 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

    I am bushed. All that remains to do is cook dinner, eat dinner, flop on sofa. Coralled a large bag of stuff together which will be dropped at the chazza first job. We go away on Sunday for a week and I am determined to come back to an organised, tidy home.

    Does anyone have any experience of using a Karcher hand held window cleaner? If so, would you recommend? Right, off to put DS to bed....

    Gilly so sorry to hear your news - how awful for you all x

    Done most of the list and have even put Dettol with hot water in the food caddy and main kitchen bin and smells so much nicer now. Also spent over 100 on yet more uniform and stationery for DS; DH asked if I can put some money into his account later in the month before he gets paid again as otherwise will go overdrawn but I haven't worked for almost 3 weeks! Deep breaths needed.

    Big hugs to you Gilly xx


    Does anyone have any experience of using a Karcher hand held window cleaner? If so, would you recommend? Right, off to put DS to bed....

    LW so pleased the meds are working. Hope other sick flyladies improve.

    2 classes at gym this am
    Watered plants.
    Fed birds.
    Tidied fairly randomly round house.
    Friend round for coffee to discuss flower club workshop we're doing tomorrow.
    Went to Mr A.
    Can't cope with this heat, feel as if I've lost the last month of my life trying to find somewhere cool!
    Remember...a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.

    Gilly I am so very sorry; how awful. Hope other dog is ok, and gets over his confusion. Gods, that's so sad.

Put it like this - I did both sides of the front and back doors plus the inside of the patio door and adjoining window in less time than it would normally have taken me to do just the inside of one door. And without knocking myself into Wednesday week in the process.

    If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion.
