Unfuck my habitat(949 Posts)
Do we have a thread already?
The prissy fly lady lot do
Anyone want to join me?
We have a thread now! Thanks Gibber, have been meaning to look into this and the site looks good. And I bloody love swearing. .
Let's see if I can post a linky link.
Unfuck your habitat
I got myself the app
I'm not very well so struggling a bit but got an instruction for the kitchen then did two 20:10s on it using the timer. It looks good though I've been slow (I feel weak) so could probably do more on a good day. Hope to get on top of it within a couple more sessions but it'll have to wait now.
I read that as unfucky our habitat
I like bloody swearing to
It's fucking satisfying
Especially in relation to shitty housework
I follow the blog on feedly buried find it bloody annoying. Like fly lady the reminders are the wrong time zone. It serves as a reminder to get stuff done.
I love this:
"Laundry and dishes have 3 steps:
3. Put it away goddammit! "
Step 3 beats me Every Time.
I showed the site to a friend
His response was
"Challenge: Put Your Clothes Away Like a Damn Grownup
You have a bunch of clothes sitting around. I know you do. Whether they’re clean and piled in a basket, or dirty and on the floor, or probably a bunch of both, they aren’t where they belong. Take 20 minutes to put that shit away."
What I want to know is, how the hell did they know???
My damned flat's bugged. That's the first bit I'm unfucking, the fucking surveillance!
I'm not looking anymore, I'm scared.
Its Flylady meets Malcolm Tucker - perfect!
Bloody brilliant. Profanity motivation. Fucking marvellous.
Thanks for bringing this to my fucking attention - are we allowed to fucking swear while we clean our shit up?! Bloody cathartic!
It is a fly lady with swears, I always respect people who use swears as a motivational tool. Will have a good read of the site today.
I love this site. Thanks for link.
My house is very tidy but that's because I havering since applied similar "get the fuck on with it" principals to my own life.
THIS is why fly lady never worked for me. Twee apron-wearing bullshit.
It looks great, thank fuck you posted about it. Thank you.
How do the know about the teetering piles of clean washing that I hide in my bedroom
Love the fact it is not aimed at women, wives, mothers, etc. but PEOPLE.
Because PEOPLE live in houses and have to try to keep on top of housework
and like swearing.
Have casually mentioned, 'Have you seen 'Unfuck Your Habitat?' to my husband. He said no. I don't want to press it as he already thinks I am strange for not wanting to wallow in filth. But maybe he'll Google it and and the lovely swearing will make something click somewhere in that enormous brain of his....
This sounds like just what I need...will be back later to learn more
Is there an email list or something?
Yes this sounds like the shit I need in my life.
Do we sign up with them or something. I'm scared of being sent hundreds of emails to remind me to clean up ( I'm looking at you FLYLADY)
I think I might have to put a poster of step 3 in each of my DDs bedrooms
3. Put it away goddammit!
Also it forgets step 0.
0. Put it in the fucking laundry basket
I'm a SAHM, I'm totally happy to sort stages 1 and 2 (wash and dry), and I will do 3 when time permits, but I'm sodded if I'm digging round bedrooms trying to find what is and isn't dirty. Also I'm sodded if I'm doing 3 while you watch be from your bloody game of SIMS!
This is perfect, thank you! I'm another who could never get on with the tweeness of fly lady. I'm a serial marathoner and always find myself cleaning whwn people are due round.
just marking my fucking place.
I seriously need to unfuck my house. The holidays have FUBAR'd it, and it's taken me the first week of school to recover enough to realise the state of the place!
What a fucking fabulous site - I totally agree with the spirit of it
not sure that I am ready to actually unfuck my house. If I were, I'd not sit here radomly lurking on MN
I am loving this site but I cant get the app
I have google play store
Damn, this is what I need!
Flylady is ok, but the endless testimonials get me to the point where I CBA reading that shit any more.
And the idea that I shouldn't bitch at DH to pick his shit up or even just not leave shoes and coats like some krypton factor challenge. That annoyed me. He gets to go to work and not have to look at the shit all day!
My DFH and DFS, who I love equally and dearly, have a habit of tossing their dirty clothes on the laundry basket rather than ensuring they go in. I need someone to fucking invent a big basketball funnel thing so that the clothes don't sit on top. I refuse to stuff mingy boxers down into the basket any more.
Now off to look at the site/app.
That looks perfect to me!
I signed up to Flylady years ago on an old account. Whe I stopped using that email I tried to unsubscribe. I went back on a couple of months ago to use it for surveys and found over 10,000 emails from Flylady and two associated accounts At least two were sent a day. I tried to unsubscribe again and couldn't. Junk mailed them and still they slip through. Madness I tell you!
I got this app the other day but haven't got around to doing anything yet my habitat definitely needs unfucking though!
I can find app. what to search exactly?
I like this FlyBitch thread!
I meant I can't find app.
is it only on Apple?
I can't find one for Smartphone
No Android app, yet, only iStuff.
The site says that bitching and whining about it won't get it made any faster.
building do you think that telling them to "unfuck their own habitat first" would help?
my inner bitch is released...
my inner FlyBitch is released
A cleaning system that speaks my language.
I've bought the app, that's enough for the first day, right?
No android? Fuck that. Seriously fucked off.
The problem is, it ignores the fact that sometimes you do not have anywhere to put away all this stuff to.
For instance we have a cellar which is almost useless. It is so damp that anything you put in it turns to a green and fluffy consistency within weeks/months and has to be thrown away.
There is a lot of stuff on the cellar stairs. There is no shed. There are only two bedrooms and there are three children, and I am trying to keep some clothes to hand down.
If there was somewhere to put stuff - and also, time in which I could put it there without balancing a baby at the same time - trust me, it would be a JOY to put it away.
rooners same problem here.
we are trying to move. house is on the market, we are out this afternoon as prospective buyers are coming (open day)
mad tidying - but where to put everything? I can't magically erase the marks of 8 people!
if I had dedicated space for everything that would mean we already have a big enough house to store
all this shit our belongings!
you can't beat Catch 22
Oh golly good luck Zing. I hope it goes well today, I'm sure however bad you think your house looks, everyone else will see right past the things and understand the awesome potential
and it cannot be worse than ours
I've just unfucked the gloryhole under our stairs - 'twas v satisfying.
I found enough dustbunnies to stuff a duvet and 7 individual (dusty) socks - I feel a session of sockpuppets-making coming on
anything to avoid more housework
Ooh cleaning for lazy sweary people
I might try to stick to this one.
I WANT THE APP <stamps feet>
Trinity well done using your words! And I'm sure that when it exists you can have it, dear.
Ooh I like
Shame about the lack of Android app though.
My house isn't messy but all the bits you can't see are inches thick in dust. I'm very good at making it look well maintained when the truth is I am a lazy fucker anddh works long hours so it's bare minimum usually.
Malcolm Tucker vs Flylady made me actually lol!
Oh I could really use an android app
Never mind, I'm away to unfuck my kitchen. Better put the fucking laundry out first
Perhaps we also need an unfuck your children app
*just do as your fucking told you odious small things*
or perhaps not
the new name for my foof!
Been wallowing in bed
I fucking love this thread.
I may do some more unfucking later
I've unfucked the desk and about a quarter of the kitchen. I made DH unfuck the garden.
Well the kitchen looks heaps better and the washing is out in the sun. Ten minutes off then I have to put away the clean shit. I'm liking this.
Very interested... what does the app do?
I've done a load of washing and grouted a third of the kitchen tiles. That however was in the presence of my mother and a sleeping baby.
I shan't get anything else done for quite some time...the washing is still in a heap on the floor.
we unfucked the house as much as we could.
I hope we get an offer. fx
Fingers crossed for you Zing
I've not unfucked anything. I have a cold and I am fucked. I will put the goddamn washing away that has mysteriously found its way to the bedroom floor...
I partially unfucked my wardrobe. Ish.
Husband fucked up the kitchen in order to feed us, and then kindly also unfucked it.
My daughter's room is seriously fucked up ATM. Fuck.
I've done two loads of fucking washing (washed and dried), folded and put away what doesn't need ironing and folded the rest neatly in the goddamn ironing basket
I've cleaned the dishwasher, the bastard.
I've batch cooked some bloody dinners
Right I'm going to go and do a fucking 20:10
Fuck me, this just what I need to get on top of my house shit. Flylady can shove it up her goddam arse.
I am enjoying the profanity more than the 'orrible housekeeping
Hmm I might be able to do tgis
Loving everyone's updates
I unfucked my ironing pile this morning before I even knew about any of this. This shit is good
Ooo I like this! Going to start unfucking tomorrow though (fucking put my sodding back out)
DH being wonderful and completely fucking up the kitchen at the moment, there is no hope of getting him to unfuck it after dinner. But the food will taste great as he is an awesome (messy) cook.
What I would really like him to do is to unfuck the bedroom floor an put his sodding clothes away. It would make it easier for me to lower my self in and out of bed.
My fridge has been unfucked
I also cleaned the kitchen windowsill from all the fucking dead flies and dead leaves
I bought the app a while ago and think its fabulous, the timer is great for when you're feeling utterly un-motivated, simply take a look at pics on blog to further motivate you and go for it!
I must missing something without the app, can't see any pictures.
I've done shitloads of washing but my unfucked kitchen is totally screwed since I made dinner. I've possibly got the makings of sinusitis though so it can fuck off
I want that app. Stamps feet and has a tantrum.
I have unfucked my bad mood by spending a fortune on different coloured nail varnishes.
each fingernail is now a different colour and they really cheered me up!
from left to right:
sunflower yellow, sky blue, mint green, purple, peach, red, dark salmon, chocolate brown, royal blue, rose pink.
my hands look like some fucking Dulux colour charts!
I just unfucked the bottom of my wardrobe and got rid of all the shitty receipts and packaging I hid in there last Christmas. I have also realised I have 9 fucking pairs of shoes that have never made it of their box.
Spent Thursday afternoon shredding and unfucked a major box of crap.
I just unfucked my sofa. Hooray.
Do you think I should add a calendar reminder or something to remind me to unfuck tomorrow?
Marking place, need to have a look at that site as fly lady has been pissing me off lately.
We just moved house. There's a lot of unfucking to do.
This looks perfect - I did a bit of Flylady but 1) all the LOL! at the end of not especially funny sentences annoyed me and 2) I never told DH about it because I never would have heard the end of it. Have sent him this link - let's fucking well do it
poached there is a blog with pics.
Scroll down a bit and you will see pics unfuckyourhabitat.tumblr.com/
Hi, I am a serial lurker on GH to try to motivate myself but things are so desperate I have to fucking DO something about my horrendous habitat. If I get UfYH app, will I get bombarded with emails which will stress me out even more? - how does it work? I'm still in bed, can't face getting up with 3dcs moaning for breakfast, someone please advise me!!
Oh this looks much more me than fly lady and its shine your sink shite
Rake, you could actually install a basketball hoop with a bag clipped underneath for the fucking laundry.
I have found my people
<weeps with relief and gratitude>
Right I'm going to do something in a min
Bathroom or kitchen?
Stick, get out of fucking bed
(Said with love)
Yes ma'am chub, I'm out of fucking bed, sadly looking at the kitchen (have i been fucking burgled?!) and still debating getting the app....
Don't need the app. Look at the blog. Do 1 20/10
So I ....
Made my bed
Washed the pots
Put steriliser on
Made dd a bottle
Put toys that aren't bath toys away in bedrooms
Put recycling out
Now feeding dd
Ooooh, Chub, fierce or what
You a sargeant-major in RL??
I am off to unfuck the Random Piles of Shite that accumulate on my kitchen worktop during the course of a week. Where does this crap even come from??
What does the app do? There is a free android app called chore checker that you can set up with all your daily/weekly/monthly tasks.
Hehey Chub, I like it!
My sheets are in the wash [preen] and I did the dishes last night like a fucking adult so the kitchen isn't too bad. I even dug out my neti pot and unfucked my sinuses.
Verging on a marathon so I'm now putting my feet up.
Yami I've used chore checker - it's brilliant, got me into some great morning habits, just simple stuff like airing bedrooms and porting recycling out but it really helped, good suggestion
I did it chub, what a fucking good girl I am! Can't quite believe what I managed in 20! Planning my next move..
Wash load 1 in dryer
Wash load 2 in washer
Rubbish from bedroom in bin
Living room tidy
remember to have a nap, Mumof3xx - we don't want you marathonning
This looks more like me as well, so how does this work then?
Now do something nice
Am trying to unfuck the fucking shitting hallway and have got a bit overwhelmed.
So I'm having a FUCKING SIT DOWN, DEAL WITH IT.
(Am talking to my inner slave driver, not you lot, obv.)
Ahhhh, that's better. Tea.
katy from what I gather the motto is the sweary version of the Nike slogan:
Just FUCKING Do It!
More pots washed
Kids beds stripped and in wash
Towels in washing machine
Can't get baby to nap so I'm now on shush-pat with one hand and MN with the other... This better bloody not count as my break
So far I have done two lots of laundry, the dishwasher and tidied up the ummentionable corner of the lounge that always seems to be a mess. No sign of Lord Lucan there though....
I have done fuck all today.
I may go and grab a shower (unfuck myself just sounds wrong) and see if I feel more motivated after
I think that we do need an equivalent of 'unfucking ourselves' though as it is jolly hard work in my case.
Some more fucking suggestions please.
Wow!! So THIS is how to motivate me to sort my shit out. Brilliant. Kept trying flylady but ended up wanting to stab my eyes out instead of reading the her patronising/sexist/just-plain-fucking-annoying mantras.
Marking my fucking place too !
Hey I'm joining in.
Playroom, living room and dining room are entirely unfucked. Probably for the first time in 7 years!!!
Kitchen is still a bit fucked but am utterly shattered and dd is unwell so it'll have to wait for another day.
I don't think some people's places can be as fucked as mine if they can be unfucked again so quickly
Daughter's room partially unfucked.
She helped by testing felt tips and chucking out the ones that don't work. I couldn't quite bring myself to swear happily at her. .
At last, site that acknowledges disability and fatigue! Managed to stop faffing about reading it and unfucked about half of the top of my dressing table. My problem is I'm 3 rooms down while builders are in, and dd has learnt to climb and there are not enough high shelves anywhere.
Plan for when I get home: get all party bag shit into one place and put into party bags for this weekend or in the bin!
My kitchen is totally unfucked but that's because it was knocked down recently so every last thing removed. Bag of weird food we"ll never eat went on Freecycle, plus 2 sets of pans, bin, water filter, and few other bits of crap. Charity shop got some too.
Demolishing your house is a bit drastic though!
Not I was also almost weeping with relief when I saw the disclaimers about disability and fatigue. So so important. If you don't know about the 'spoons' thread in general health do join us.
Building - I posted on the spoons thread onc e near the start but it's a bit of a downer... I do need to get and fill out PIP forms though so may be looking for support soon.
Oh great, a real fucking cleaning/tidying/chucking website for bloody adults
Flylady was tweer that Jane Austen's petticoat, it drove me nuts.
So far this afternoon:
21mo DS has just cleaned the dining table and the stairs (tiled) with wet wipes.
He stood on a chair and played with cars on the kitchen counter while I sorted out:
Tupperware cupboard, including about 7 empty ice cream tubs!
Spare change box; have accumulated so many bronze coins, finally went to the bank and got 1/2/5p bags - we have £27! Wtaf? May open a university savings account for DS
or more than likely fill the car with petrol
Sorted out boxes for: crayons, string, batteries, post-its,glues, sellotape and LABELLED them all. Get me!
Done a monster washing up.
Took DS for a five-minute swing in the park as, as soon as we left the garden, it started thundering! Poor bugger.
I now have a cup of tea, four squares of Milka chocoswing cookie and Tabatha's Salon Takeover
Went abit lazy after my last post but now pulling my bloody finger out
Kids tea in oven
Washer on (again)
Wash pots (again)
Realised there is already enough ironed uniform and if I go to bed now I don't have to see the bin til morning when I will stop being a lazy bitch and empty it
Tidied bookcase (a 4x4 Ikea Expedit, so no small task!)
Chucked l-o-a-d-s of crap I've been hoarding: hairbobbles... i have a BOB!
Made dinner, washed it all up, prepared DS for bed.
Whatsapped a friend abroad for about an hour
Now waiting for DS to decide it's bedtime so I can watch Zoolander!
I got my fucking drain rods out and unblocked the outside kitchen drain. It stank! But at least water won't piss all over the garden every time I turn the tap on.
I possibly took this too far tonight. I fell out with DH by stropping about how I have to do all the fucking unfucking round here. Never mind!
Oooo.....I just got told off on another thread for being sweary....I think I may come any play here instead. Website looks interesting. Can I MN whilst on my 10 mins do you think?
You are fucking welcome here any day FishFingers
Now, what buggery bollocks cleaning/tidying/putting away have you done with your sorry arse today?
I mn while doing fuck all else during my ten minute break
My sodding knees ache
Um....nrot much. To busy arguing on here tbh. Oh and cooking lunch for PIL. So I suppose I tidied away my cooking mess
dumped it in the sink for DH and DCs to deal with later
Not sure if that counts though. Can I start tomorrow please?
I have changed my bedsheets today and cleaned up the gross cat mat with sticky cat food on <fucking boak>
Tomorrow's is the "ironing basket" aka towering pile of clothes and shite in the bedroom
Normally I say things like, 'gosh darn it to heck' but bugger my cheesy twatbags I'm in on this!
Tomorrow I am trying to unfuck a collapsed wardrobe in what is supposed to be turning into my bedroom. And
speaking swearing of which I am off to bed.
I feel I have found a safe place.
Another disillusioned fly-lady drop out here...
This sounds much more fucking fun!
Will see if I can unfuck more than I fuck up tomorrow
remembering can you pleeeeeeease start with NC to PuddingAndHotMilk?
come on, you promised!
LOL zing! Yes and yes but I can't work out how on the iPhone app
I need to unfuck my sleep patterns
On the iPhone use safari to login then name change as normal
'kay had a little browse and have decided this is definitely the fucking system for me
Today I have unfucked the coffee mugs that had collected over the last Two days, and left OH to clean up after the bastard dogs. Not much else as lunch was eaten out, tried to donate blood but they don't want my fucking blood, then unfucked the purchasing of cleaning materielas, on OH's card
see he thinks he's controlling the fucking money but he really isn't
Need to Go through my fucking warbrode -again- and toss out scruffy stuff, but that's waiting 'til Tomorrow as it's too fucking late for unfucking anything else tonight. I'm sure there's Loads moré I could unfuck Tomorrow if I put my mind to it.
I also have fucked up sleep which needs unfucking, currently using medicación as a semi-unfuck. Off to pop a pill now.
Unfucked my username
fishfingers I'm MN on my 10.
I'm unfucking my study which usually consists of me reading for about 5 minutes then stressing out and checking the online study forums then making a cup of tea.
Do I have a timer on my computer now. Oh fuck yeah!
Good fucking morning
Well my dc are all up, fed and half dressed.
Sink is full
Packed lubch half made
How did I not know about this!
I used the slatterns thread, which I used to find really helpful and supportive, but it is a lot quieter these days, so more just for procrastination! And flylady. Flylady has it's uses, but it assumes you fit your life around your home, which is really not the case!
Today I need to unfuck my kitchen, unfuck the laundry and find homes for all the amazing birthday presents I got on Friday.
Love this! It's totally me :-) have the app, need to unfuck my car, kitchen and kids bedrooms today. Will report back later...
Pudding you are a fucking star!!!!
I had a shit night and DD's just been sick again - but that cheered me right up!
Oh my god, that site is amazing. Totally sending DH the linky! FLYlady meets Malcolm Tucker, brilliant!
Fucking love it. I need to unfuck my shoes.
Next baby nap it's getting fucking done. 20 mins then a break. Genius.
if my iPhone autocorrects to ducking one more time
Zing, glad to have provided some cheer after a shitty night
If my DD ever detaches from my fucking boob I'm attempting to unfuck my kitchen today. Thank fuck for Moby Wraps and cooler weather.
Can I hop on the fucking bandwagon please? House is constantly a shithole - combination of lack of storage, and sheer laziness
am also pregnant with no energy but this looks fab!
This morning I've unfucked my phone (downloaded the app), unfucked my dirty toilet (been procrastinating about doing it far too long) and unfucked one kitchen cupboard! Plenty for now, its brew time...
I really have to post Ebay stuff.
I'm normally on the ball and send items on time, but I just haven't been able to fo it due to constant stomach cramps for 4 days (red witch)
it's too cold here and I have a cold and want to sleep.
can someone please tell me to stop wailing and get fucking going?
Zing, just do your jobs like the fully grown adult you are!
And have a hot water bottle with your
This is fucking awesome! Just read it, and I'm feeling pretty bloody smug right now. In the last week I have pretty much unfucked my whole house! I even vaccuumed more than once a week. It does of course help that I'm not really working much at the moment so have no excuse.
Just the hidden places and stinking dogs bed to do now. At first glance, its actually pretty good. If my mother ever came to see me I wouldn't be too ashamed at the state of it.
And training DH to pick up his fucking pants and put them in the laundry basket. Obviously all the mess is his fault
Now stop fannying about on MN and go put away that leaning pile of clean laundry!
bane of my life
There's an app?! Fucking brilliant.
First job, unfuck my dog by taking him for a walk. The little shit will pull my sodding arm off for an hour, then drool water all over the bloody kitchen floor.
Second job, unfuck my kitchen floor. I'm sure I had a mop somewhere...
retro available on Apple, not on Android!
they need to unfuck that situation!
<shakes fist in air and stamps feet>
but I won't do it unless you swear at me .
Just done two twenty/tens: I've unfucked my kitchen and unfucked dinner time tonight by preparing a butterbean stew. I'm on my second break now and then I'm having one more twenty/ten to unfuck some laundry and a general clear up
I've got a
battered and old fucking iPhone. Happy days.
But you're right, they do need to unfuck that situation.
I unfucked the hallway in a serious fashion (yesterday and today). Now you can see how badly it needs a coat of fucking paint.
Zing, get a fucking move on. You are a disgrace to your regiment.
Am still procrastinating about my daughter's awful, awful shithole room...
Meant to be unfucking the futility room, but got as far as the first Christmas storage box and made the mistake of opening it
So, that's now packed nicely, lights untangled, old broken crap thrown away, last year's cards binned etc.
nine biscuit and back to the fucking futility room of mess. Arsecorks.
I want this for my dcs, but after having a self-righteous conversation about the normalisation of swear words and their meanings being static, altered only in perception, I HAVE A DILEMMA.
Noobie, you have FUCKING dilemma. HTH.
DH said that UfYH was like Malcolm Tucker meeting Mary Poppins. 'A spoonful of sugar helps you clean your fucking room, but so does punching you so hard that your grandmother feels it and I haven't any sugar so my options are limited.'
I've unfucked the hob rests on the gas cooker by putting them in the dishwasher but was interrupted so now off to unfuckingload the washer, the dryer, the dishwasher and then off to unfuck the collapsed wardrobe.
My big pustule of a problem is that I haven't got homes for the stuff. I need to unfuck that asap.
elQuintoConyo love the designation of the futility room.
If I come back on here before 15.00 hours, shoot me! Even the 10s of the 20/10s are accounted for today as a shitload of admin to do.
The 10 isn't very long is it? Wasn't even halfway thru my fucking tea.
Zing hope DD is okay now.
Have unfucked the family and booted them out on school run. This includes unfucking breakfast while I berate DDs for putting lunch bags in the cupboard full of half eaten food on Friday. T'was 30 fucking degrees yesterday, I don't need fucking mouldering lunch bags on a Monday morn. Then unfucking fresh food into said bags.
Kitchen needs a good unfuck but I'm taking a fucking break.
Bedrooms also need unfucking.
I'm defo getting the app, don't care if I fucking need it or not
I want it.
Unfucked DD's nappy. On the bed.
Had to unfuck self and bed as she fucking shit everywhere.
Adorabell that is fucking disgusting, food in lunchbags all weekend! Eeeewwwww.
Daughter's bloody room definitely getting whole lot shitting worse before better.
If anyone has answers on how to get clingy anxious really GIRLY 6 yo girl to keep her room tidy...well, presumably you'd be a fucking millionaire, amiright.
I'm having a brilliant time listening to an old mix tape while I unfuck. "Man of Constant Sorrow', Pixies, Liz Phair...etc. If anyone hadn't heard Liz Phair's 'Polyester Bride' I thoroughly recommend, an indie-poppy-funny-poignant singalongy tune.
Just had to ride to pick dc4 up from school. Uphill on the way back pulling a trailer containing said child. I need it unfuck my fitness too
Just back from toddler--hell--group were DS4 fucked up a plastic racing car thingy - needs to be unfucked aka superglued before next Monday.
Other than that, I've done fuck all so far - well, got up, had shower, washed hair, got DSs1-3 up, dressed, breakfasted and off to school. In their least fucked up schoolwear as the photographer is comign today to takes pictures of the little darlings. Good luck to the photographer <<toasts with >>
So I suppose I have done something - is it time for a rest yet?
On a 10. Have unfucked laundry and dishes and done veg shopping. Also unfucked family relationships by buying a shitload of birthday cards and emailing my mum. Have also bought stuff to do that Martha Stewart tying your duvet cover to your duvet thing in the hope of unfucking changing the bedclothes later on.
Daughter's wardrobe nearly unfucked. Now to get huge pile of clothes out the door to chazzer and recipients of hand-me-downs.
Just found this thread, just spent a whole week off doing fuck all and found the website, bought the app and have just done two 20:10's and achieved more in that time than the whole week I've just pissed away! I even changed the battery in the kitchen clock that had been pissing me off all week while I was waiting for the kettle to boil for my smug self congratulatory cuppa... Lordy, OH will think I'm on drugs when he gets home..
Do they still have 'Hey, Tom' on Flylady? He was cute, but that's about fucking all.
Someone give me some motivation I am very fucking lazy today
...and can I just say that thanks to you 'arsecorks' is my new favourite swear word that I intend to incorporate as much as possible into everyday swearery? Fucking brilliant!!
well this is a breath of fucking fresh air
I need to unfuck soooo many things. FLYlady principles have worked well for me in the past but I can't fucking stand the sickly sweetness of it. Unfucking is perfect.
Today I have unfucked my washing basket, Unfucked the living room & am about to unfuck my hovel of a bedroom, I'm hoping to unfuck the kitchen & the bathroom today as well so I can mop, I'm on the 2nd 20-10 of the day & have got more done already than I have in ages
Yami- what Martha Stewart thing?
right, I will unfuck flat surfaces in the living room. Have made a start on unfucking the piles of clothes that are taking over the house.
Mumof3xx - get a move on!
And shoot me. I've taken a longer break than I meant, but the washing/dishwasher unfucking spilled over into cutting the chips for tea (low fat fryer!) to have with cold meat from yesterday plus using the cooking apples father brought in to make an apple crumble for dinner. I unfucked around for a while, but it will take more than one 20/10 to unfuck my kitchen. So I had lunch.
Really bracing myself to unfuck the wardrobe. I completely fucked the twatbag. It was a cheap thingy and I didn't clear the base and the 'fabric' cover didn't fit over the metal frame as too small. Then it collapsed. I have a replacement but I have to unfuck the collapsed wardrobe first which means belting up and down two flights of stairs so I am unfucking my fitness levels at the same time. Then the new wardrobe and finally after six years I will have somewhere for my clothes. That's a big unfuck.
Hmm I came to make the bed, but accidentally sat on it and now I am stuck
Actually incapacitated or gripped by inertia?
It's taken me 3 days but I just did my first 20/10. Downstairs toilet lookin good. Ten mins goes fast though.
I heard you loud & clear!
I sent the parcels, returned sg to Tesco and bought more nail varnish and lip gloss & got dinner sorted.
that's it. no more spending until Christmas!
I even got to school early and took the last parking place - fucking awesome or what?!
just waiting now to get DS4.
Ads she is full of snot. she's ok though, thanks!
Unfucked the fridge! Yeah! Off to get kids from school, they'll be exhausted with full days of preschool / school after last weeks half days so going to put a fucking DVD on and unfuck the rest of the kitchen. I may even fucking dance to music while doing it.
Fucking running tonight on the unfuck my fitness plan...
This is way more cool than the prissy wee flylady stuff!
Bags of clothes to recipients, huzzah!
Watched half an episode of 'The Thick of It' in honour of you lot while I sorted bags. Fucking brilliant.
I'm glad too see futility room is still alive and doing well!
(for those who don't know it was only a typo at first in describing a very messy utility room that was near impossible to clean - but "futility room" is actually the perfect phrase for it IMO! )
PMSL at futility room so true!
I've unfucked the laundry and cloth nappies including stuffing the boosters in the fucking pockets ahead of needing it (I've realised stuffing the bastard thing while holding kicking screaming child's feet out of the way of the old nappy is fucking impossible)
Unfucking my body by getting some sleep is high on my list now (DD allowing of course) followed by a 20:10 session with the LO in a sling...
I've tidied up my pinterest boards. Does that count?
mumof3xx some areas have heavier gravity than others. Well known fact. Especially beds, sofas and armchairs. Beds with teenagers are practically black holes.
Probably won't be able to keep up the actual swearing, but I'm there in spirit.
Have unfucked the collapsed wardrobe. As a reforming hoarder I am going to be on a mission this month as there is a table top sale at the local methodist and my father was born to sell.
So dinner is unfucked, the spare apples donated by father to add to the apple mountain are now in an apple crumble and the washer and dryer are on again. I did have washing on the line. Fucking, arsing, snotridden, pox laden cunting rain. Which stopped the second I got through the door.
I think I love this thread.
GibbertheMonkey My email accounts are in my sights.
The DO (Darling Offspring) and I have made mini-doughnuts in a Homer Simpson themed doughnut maker - this process has totally fucked-up my kitchen. Fucking doh!!
But I did finally unfuck the huge bag of my old Playmobil (bear in mind that I am as old as time itself) that my mum kindly brought to ours. At Christmas 2012. I thought I'd better unfuck it before Christmas 2013. It had spent the last 8+ months sitting on a shelf in the dining area .
Thoroughly unfucked now, DS4 thinks it's great.
Info for those thinking about keeping their kid's Playmobil for their GC: don't do it. Plastic tat gets old and breaky and bits get fucking lost. What's the point of an Indian Chief without his fucking feather headpiece, I ask you??
Unfucked the ironing basket (didn't iron it, mind, just took things out of there which shouldn't be there and put them in for washing...) and unfucked kitchen windowsill. Phew!
Hoping to unfuck DHs passport situation in the process of unfucking some shitty 'Drawers of Doom'.
Have also unfucked the pet food situation before the dog has to eat hotdogs. Which he won't mind, but with his dodgy stomach I will afterwards.
Just unfucked the bedroom windowsill. That fucker's been pissing me off for months. <proud>
Suspect that's going to be all I manage today as DD is surgically attached to my boob now
and I'm sleeeeeeeepy
a very good decluttering project - also works on the 30 mins/day philosophy!
I think it goes well with UfYH, so I hope you don't mind gibber that I added it!
Water's off here, bods fixing thing in a big hole, so fucked my unfucking somewhat. I did unfuck the kitchen and get to Pilates before the water was cut off. Still need to unfuck beds and food for dogs. Futility room was semi unfucked already and today I unfucked some seeds into pots.
Looks like I'll be venturing out tonight though, a classmate of DD2 lost her father last night - don't know what COD was- so there's a mass for him tonight and funeral tomorrow. Fuck knows what's happening about dinner.
snot monster DD is okay.
My unfucked kitchen and dining room look fucking amazing.
My DH thinks I'm on fucking drugs...
Is anyone giving in to Malcolm tucker style sweary retorts to casual enquiries about all the activity (please say yes)?
Zing It will definitely take me more than 40 days to declutter, but I will be reading. Thanks for the link.
Tomorrow is unfucking the back of the chairs in the living room. Father's present for last Christmas is still there somewhere.
That will take most of the available time (when ds is at school, I'm not being nagged by uncle, I'm not being nagged by father and I'm not trying to catch up on all the admin I need to keep up to). The day after is unfucking my bedroom, Part I. Note Roman Numeral for Part I. The task is that epic.
Probably massive x post as with bedtime it's taken me over two hours to write this.
LisaMedicus Maximus Epicus
your new name for your epic tasks!
Of course not Zing
That list looks fucking useful
ZingWantsCake I feel all humbled by the epithet. <considers name change, can't remember how to work the fucker>
I'm in for the long haul. UfYH seem to be a good place to get motivated. And the company on here seems worth a fuck.
Making list of places not to channel Malcolm Tucker by accident. Starts with ds's school. They've probably heard worse from the kids but I like to try and look like I'm a reasonable person. Post Office queue is probably bad as well.
Just unfucked the pile of post that's been collecting dust for weeks.
5 easy steps to unfuck your username:
1. you need a full screen
2. click on "my mumsnet"
3. click on "my account"
4. type new name in "username" field
5. click on "save changes"
you know you'll have to do a Gladiator speech, don't you?
I'm trying not to dread the unfucking I have to do tomorrow. Honestly, her room is fucking awful.
Maybe I'll go and buy some clear boxes so she can organise things more easily
and I can dodge work for a while.
Goodnight all. Don't let the bastards get you down.
So, mass and funeral tomorrow, which means I've managed to unfuck dog food and some provisions for us humans too. I'm on taxi duty in half an hour then need to unfuck dinner, lunch for tomorrow ~ only 1 DD as t'other is attending the funeral with the rest of the class. Not sure I'm happy with that but it's they way it's done here. The Boyfriend has very kindly volunteered his mum to take her.
Plants and shit delivered today, OH can unfuck those. Serouisly need to unfuck laundry in the morning, I'm out of tea towels and I have fucking loads of the things.
Fucked my sleep up last night by going to bed too fucking late, must do better with the unfucking of the sleep tonight. I may have the energy to catch up then, oh fuck just remembered estate agent be coming to redo photos in the morning.
Can I tell you a secret? I unfucked the FIL on the phone yesterday, he was making fucking stupid remarks about we should be living our lives and I accidentally let rip, felt good and OH gave me the thumbs up. Can't do grins on this keyboard but it's ear to fucking ear.
Ads whose funeral? sorry to hear!
can you do [ grin ] without the gaps?
Ads you win "most fuck in one post of the year "award!
12 in fact. I counted it twice. plus a "shit" as cherry on top! well done!
I've been needing to unfuck my study for ages. Even my crazy pregnancy nesting didn't get me motivated. I'm hoping between you lot and UFYH I can do it. Shout at me if I don't report back on study unfuckage please?!
Hoping DD with live in the fucking moby wrap tomorrow so I can do some unfucking!!
Zing it was the puter I was on, can't find the fucking brackets.
Funeral is the father of DD2's classmate, apparently his DD has been off school almost a month as he deteriated and he passed at 4am today. Not very old at all but I'm not sure what age he was.
Taxi service no longer needed, t'other parent managed to collect. So now I'm unfucking dinner.
Most fucks eh < takes a bow, I'm not fucking curtsying>
Zing I'm Adora, Ads is t'other one on the sweary thread
No problem Zing, just didn't want to cause confusión cos I see she's done her laundry Today and I haven't
Adora as if I had time for spreadsheeting!
<jots down "Adora-no laundry" in notebook.>
Am being a brave unfucking warrior today. Have tackled dad's desk and cleared a huge bag of old
adorable drawings and letters to fairies. Kept the most special.
Now to unfuck under my son's bed, full of old drawings and school work. This is so hard for me, I want soldierly boot camp style pats on the back please.
Good unfucking work, soldier. Now keep that unfucking up, no time to waste
<claps Pudding on the shoulder manfully>
Keep up the good work all.
Well I think its about time to get the unfucking started!
In no particular order the things I intend to do over the rest of this week are:
Do ALL the ironing (and actually find somewhere to put all the stuff thats been lurking at the bottom of the basket for ages)
Clean the washing machine fishing all of mank out of the door seal, doing a boil wash to clean it then
Wash, dry, iron and put away the mountain of baby clothes I bought on ebay
Give the bathroom a good clean, trying to finally get rid of the orange grouting
Hoover, mop and dust
Clean out the manky kitchen cupboard and fridge
And my own personal nemesis, clean the oven. I do have some of that oven pride in the cupboard, might try and con my other half into doing that as it must be far too toxic for a poor pregnant woman to use
wish me luck!
Just off to pick up dc4 on my bike in the fucking rain
When I get back I'll be so fucked I won't be able to do any unfucking for hours.
I seem to be failing at this
Good morning fellow unfuckers
I stumbled upon this thread just in the nick of time, my house is in serious need of unfucking.
I'm a slob, always have been but really want to change, and at almost 40 yrs old I think it's time that I grow the fuck up. I've tried fly lady and couldn't get past shining the sink.
So here's to us all being completely unfucked in the not to distant future
Nice thread! Have downloaded the app, will attack soon
Dressed and fed myself, dd and cat!
Walked dd to school for her 1st full day at nursery
Tidied living room
Made both beds, opened curtains and windows as soon as got up
Changed dd duvet for winter one(cold last night)
Cleaned dd rain suit
Cleaned and polished dd's spare school shoes
Packed dd's lunch box( my first ever time for her!!)~~~obvs not listing these in order!!
Made an important phone call
That's a fucking nough for now....!!!
Have unfucked breakfast and packed lunches, Sent family off to school. OH likes to do school run.
Still in need of unfucking-
Futility - DD's Bed sheets strewn on the floor, towels and knickers to be washed.
Bedrooms as estate agent is coming to update photos so things need to be shoved into cupboards.
Wash my manky hair, the no water sitch yesterday really fucked me up in the beauty área.
Need to unfuck some excersise too, but I can feel yesterday's Pilates class.
Well helloooo fellow unfuckers! Thank fuck I found UFYH, Flylady was not for me. Felt like a fucking knob shining my fucking sink, tbh.
Startef today on the weekend challenge and have unfucked the kitchen, bathroom and am just about to unfuck the fucking laundry. Wish the fucking showers would fuck right off though.
Your ten minutes are up, fuckers, so get unfucking!
I unfucked loads of kids pics and school work. System in place for future.
Have to dash to shop and then I'll finish the fucker off.
Not a good unfucking day here. I am buggering about like a fart in a bottle and it's getting me nowhere.
Too late to unfuck back of chairs.
On the other hand I've unfucked dinner, so that's something. Sort of homemade soup in the slowcooker - ham left from the joint, veggies, a packet of thick country veg soup mix (works for me) and some chopped, skinned fresh tomatoes that needed using up. I loathe chopping and skinning tomatoes. The kitchen looked like a vegetable abattoir.
Trying to get motivated to make bread in the microwave. Think I will pass on that today.
Well I did over ten hours at work yesterday with cm dropoffs and collections on top of that so I didn't do anything constructive. I put the DC in bed then had wine and brie for dinner
I've done sod all today apart from unfucking my body on a bike ride (it's a big job) but once I've had this cuppa a 20/10 is happening. It will probably include the dishes and a quick bathroom clean up.
Lisa farts in bottles do not complement grandiose epic challenges. Get your shit together!
had to tidy up for a potential buyer, but the buggers didn't turn up!
I took a friend and her baby to osteopath, delivered some clothes to MIL to pass on to SIL for her youngest - another tick!
house looks pretty good (with skeletons hidden away), so I unfucked some
rotting ripe bananas and made chocolate-banana-almond muffins for after school treat and I feel like a good mother. salt of the Earth.
Dh is off work today so the unfucking isn't going as well as I intended, but he has unfucked some of his shite which is a bonus.
I've put fresh sheets on all the beds and put the winter duvets back on as it's getting chilly.
I've unfucked all the washing and put away all the clean piles of washing, that was a massive task on it's own as there we're piles of it everywhere.
I've almost unfucked all the dishes, just about to put them away. All kitchen surfaces are wiped down and tidy.
Bins and recycling are done.
I'm off to clean the shower screen now.
Just fucking discovered this thread!
But I can't for the fucking life of me find the app?! What the hell do I search for?! Please help me-I NEED this in my life!
It's unfilth my habitat on App Store (for iPhone) but it reverts to unfuck when it's downloaded. No android one apparently.
My agent is coming to take photos, not entirely her fault, it's overcast and she wanted pics outside. Course our water is heated free by solar panels
no zombie invasión is going to stop my OH having a nice hot shower and I used up precios hot water trying to Get futility looking less like an explosión site. OH will be unhappy if we need to purchase heating source from gas company and I'll tell him to Fuck off
Anyway, unfucked list so far
My bedroom - unfucked
DD1's room -unfucked
DD2's room - unfucked
Lounge - unfucked
DW and breakfast detritus- unfucked
My breakfast - unfucked
Towels and nix washing - unfucked
DD1 is going to have to unfuck her own Bed sheets coz she got fucking permanente marker on fancy, but not expensive, sheets
I'm pissing off out for a vigouros walk.
Zing it's fucking annoying when they din't turn up, isn't it?
No farts in bottles here, but only because I was expecting the agent.
Tired I'm on android so can't get the app, so I'm just using the website which is grwat anyway.
I have six huge bags of laundry to do but the electric is running low and I'm stuck at home today so will finish it in tomorrow when DS goes to nursery.
My next challenge is the living room which I'm dreading as there are bricks and toys everywhere and the whole bastarding room needs doing.
Kick up the arse needed here, please. Don't hold back, I'm a lazy fucker.
Agent isn't coming to take photos
<adds autocorrect to unfuck list>
damn right. bloody bastards!
I tried to sleep but just as I was dozing off a friend called me. by accident.
3 FUCKING TIMES!
I've been guzzling water to make me feel better, but I will need coffee after school run.
it's a long time till bedtime
Well I have unfucked my washing machine and done all the ironing, there is no more orange grouting in my bathroom - thanks again Mumsnet for recommending the dettol anti mould stuff.
I'm happy with that for today, back to work for next 2 days but back on it on Friday!
Have recently unfucked DCs rooms (pointless task) and have now started on my own
piles of rubbish filing systems.
Problen is I like to see everything and have too many projects on the go. If I put things in a cupboard I just forget they're there.
eg. have unloaded EVERYTHING from my desk and storage cupboard onto the kitchen table which is now a huge heap. One pile is "useful notepads" which includes blank school books - all good for making lists, shopping, quick homework notes etc, but seriously I could open a stationery shop. If it sold piles of half used notebooks.
Now just need a new system - that actually works
Love this stuff, never saw the point of shining a sink.
I've emptied the playroom of all loose stuff and cleaned the carpet. Well I've done the first part. Have to go back over it to dry it out.
How can people have practical unfucked their houses since this thread started? They can live in squalor like I do
(Actually I don't, I'm somewhere in the middle on the minging to spotless scale)
Gibber I am seriously on a mission to unfuck my entire house before Christmas as it has been about 18 months since I've had a good clear out/deep clean. I need to make the spare room usable before Christmas and various other things have to shift to make that possible.
Other essential tasks are getting left behind. Like the bloody buggering food shopping. .
I just want to 'marathon' it, as the UFYH says, but as they say, it is a shit approach, because life goes on.
I've also been listening to self-hypnosis tracks to motivate me and it is totally fucking working. I am like a decluttering machine compared to how I used to be ... truly weird.
Unfucked all the laundry - 1 load left to put away
Unfucked the nappies and stuffed the fucking pockets
Unfucked the dishwasher, again
Unfucked the fridge
Need to unfuck my desk in my study and set up the mac.
If I get a chance I should unfuck the bedroom and lounge but depends on DD being compliant.
My unfuckness has fucked off.
Zing that must be so frustrating. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest their underwear drawer.
poachedeggs Speeches are in the bottle with the fart lol.
betterwhenthesunshines as someone working to beat the hoarding fug, those half used notebooks - I would throw all but two out, and have a clearly defined home for them. I am getting to practice what I preach as I have recently ditched two car boots full of yarn. The notebooks are looming for me, but I have a six year old who uses a lot of paper.
All washing up done and put away, so feeling good about that.
Seven years ago I had to completely turn the house upside down when double glazing put in while seven months pregnant and unable to walk. I wasn't able to sort out the baby's room. The house was fucked. I was unable to reach the top story of house for years. As I was limping towards getting a bit better father moved in with us. House was refucked with reorganisation and his stuff. After a couple of years I recently decided that it is no longer worth me sleeping in the living room (long story) and need to move into the 'junk room' which is such a fuck up that Kim and Aggy wouldn't go there. Added to the leaking roof that left black mold there, there are just piles of 'stuff'. So I have a lot of fuckness to sort. At least I am now sleeping in a bed.
I have piles of crud in the kitchen which could do with going into the walk in cupboard, which is blocked by ironing, which has nowhere to go when ironed until I sort out the wardrobes...
I may be here some time. Currently have PMT which can fuck right off.
I'm fucked! Did an hour's walking and it's just about finíshed me off. I'm currently taking a muscle relaxant for chest paín, had it checked it's not my heart, the fucking thing seems to be working rather too Well. I can't hold my spare tire in
Washing needs hanging, next lot nearly finíshed.
Did one 20/10 yesterday and another today. Have a teething baby and back pain so I suspect you guys will be eating off your pristine floors before I'm unfucked...
So fucking tired! Been up since 5 and worked all day!
Kids all in bed and a wash load on
To do before bed -
Dry clothes in basket
Wet clothes in dryer
Dirty clothes in washer
Feel a 9 o clock bedtime is in order
I haven't unfucked a fucking thing today. I'm watching the Great Fucking Bake Off instead.
Can find the fucking app, anyone know if it's free? I'll keep looking.
An hour has passed and I've done nothing
We may, or may not, have someone come to view the house this evening. All I need to do is achieve dinner with no cooking smells and 2 hours with the dog trainer, and supervise the DDs with a classmate and be available to show the house, which needs to be spotless.
Time for bed
AdoraBell hope viewing went well. btw I simmer cloves slowly on the stove to make the house smell nice. I use the last non stick pan I have as I fucked all the rest and this pan is pretty twatted after a pan full of cloves has simmered dry. Again. Simmering cloves are lovely. Burning cloves are toxic gas.
Everyone fed, dishwasher loaded and off, pizza cooked for ds's packed lunch tomorrow, all clothes needed for tomorrow ironed and laid out, tomorrow morning unfucked.
Cloves you say? That's easier than a fucking apple pie. Thank you.
Working nights so only had the chance to unfuck my bedside cabinet when I woke up, only to find OH and DS had done their best to refuck all the unfucked stuff I had done yesterday! Decided to do a 20:10 before I go to bed this morning and not to worry about it, it still looks a lot better than before I started....
Well done on not worrying about it shobby hope you Get a good day's sleep.
I have now unfucked minding a friend's DS for half an hour, feeding DDs plus 1, training dogs, feeding dogs, feeding myself and OH, taking out dog's breakfast to deforst over night, ditto a pepper to add to pasta salad for school packed lunches, and put DW on. OH unfucked a cup of tea
he's a good boy sometimes unfucked my manky hair earlier, shall finísh the Job Tomorrow and Straighten it.
Morning all! Just morning still anyway.
Have unfucked the oven (bleurgh) and under the kitchen sink, and put the shopping away which has fucked up two of my cupboards.
Need a big rest now.
Will do some work this pm, so that will be a break from all this habitwattery.
I've unfucked my study desk and Mac which has enabled me to unfuck my finances (well, fucked em but avoided credit rating issues iyswim)
Been to chiro to unfuck DDs back.
This pm I'll have 1 attempt to unfuck sleep between feeds then unfuck filing in study
LOVING the app!
buildingmycorestrength love habitwattery!
I've been hiding from this thread. I've cued up dinner so that's unfucked. I've started the 'behind the chairs unfuck but been relentlessly interrupted. I am fed up.
Biting bullet and going back to the armchairs of doom.
Hi fellow unfuckers. I'm sitting in my unfucked living room, I have an unfucked bathroom, bedroom and kitchen too. Tomorrow I'm going to unfuck DS's room and the dining room.
I've put off doing all this for so long and I can't tell you how pleased I am with myself. I've always used the excuse of living in a rented house, with a bit of a damp problem and peeling wallpaper to be a slob, really. But do you know what? I'm 34 years old, ffs. I'm a nice person and I deserve to live in a nice tidy house with nice clean things in it and more importantly so does my lovely DS. DP and I are going to unfuck the wallpaper at the weekend and I've got some lovely paint on order along with some new curtains and cushions. My redundancy payout goes in on Friday which will be really helpful. Landlady has agreed to buy and put down new carpets too!
I must remember that housework isn't hard. Tedious as shit, yes. But not hard. Good luck everyone.
unfucking fucked here, but at least I found father's present for last Christmas. Alcohol doesn't go off, thank fuck.
Unfucked an order to Approved Food this morning. About to unfuck a Tesco order. Last one was five bottles of Famous Grouse and three pot noodles.
Going to try and finish off some of the craft projects I've started - about fifty (I threw some out) to unfuck some boxes.
My laundry pile is fucking huge. Well it would be, but it is all sorted at least and is now 4 fucking huge piles. Trying to decide which load to do first gave me a headache so I'm having a instead.
Living room and kitchen are pretty much unfucked (if you ignore the piles of crap on
most some of the surfaces) and I cleaned the bathroom while DD was in the bath because she was already pouring water so may as well clean herself at the same time so fuck it, I deserve a break!
Also love the idea of using pregnancy to get DH to clean the oven. I need to think what else I can get done using this excuse.
So fucking tired
Back so fucking achey
Early fucking morning
Long fucking day
Well done on all the unfucking everyone.
My lounge and dinning room are almost permantly unfucked Due To need of selling, everyone is banned from using them
Have so far unfucked the follówing,
Morning routine of getting DDs ready for school and out the fucking door.
Excersise - Pilates today, Thank fuck no moré muscle relaxant, I could actually do it today.
Laundry, so much fucking laundry
Broke a glass
Cleaned up bits off glass
Moré fucking laundry
Put DW on.
Should be going out for afternoon tea with a friend but protests in the capital seem To have spread To here too so not sure if It'll happen. She's working from home Due To anticipated problems. Then school run, they finish late today. OH is stuck in tráfico in the capital, no idea how long It'll take.
Washing in dryer
Work tops and table cleaned
Just need a quick unfuck tidy the living room then bed!
I've unfucked my inbox at work today - both my actual as well as my virtual 'desk' are now fucking chasm of emptiness.
Does this count?
I fucking hope so .
Aren't we all doing marvellously well - I am bloody proud.
Office unfucking must count, how could it not?
Mumof3xx - you sound exhausted, congrats on still unfucking.
PacificDogwood - it fucking does count!
Thanks to this thread I have unfucked morning - shirts ironed, lunchbox braced etc Just need to cook the pizza. Ds is currently eating cold pizza instead of sandwiches. He is also aiming to eat his own bodyweight in sugar. I am working on it.
My two would love pizza in their lunchboxes but I worry it would get frowned upon!
Ds's school are pretty liberal. The only thing they forbid is sweets. DH made the lunch one morning and accidentally put Guzzle Puzzles in (attempting to look healthy sweets) and ds has never forgiven him and always checks the lunch box now.
Ds is currently refusing sandwiches, depending on the phase of the moon. He is also currently rejecting ham (unless on pizza). He is rejecting Fridge Raiders (don't blame him) and will only eat cheese at either his auntie's or uncle's house. Or if it is pizza, because that doesn't count. Or another random reason. He loves/loathes fruit (flip a coin) and will/will not eat celery sticks or cucumber sticks as the wind changes. Tomatoes are either the work of the devil or sent from heaven. Terms and conditions apply.
He isn't the biggest challenge I have in catering. My life is a bit fucked. However at least tomorrow morning is unfucked thanks to motivation from this thread.
This thread is wonderfully motivational - great unfucking work everyone!
Today I must unfuck my sleep as well as my study & kitchen. Sleep being top priority - suffering for no naps yesterday when DD slept well and in her crib / Moses for once! 15-17 feeds per day is fucking exhausting!
I'm sorry I can't quite keep up because of work but I have a day off today so I'm around again. Want to say though that your last post was very inspiring Ralph
I've unfucked the kitchen and started the washing so far, as well as putting away the Tesco order I thought I'd ordered for tomorrow (but as I'm clearly incapable of operating a mouse I'd clicked the wrong day and it came today, before I'd finished it, so I've got four packets of noodles, twelve pints of milk, two chickens and no fruit whatsoever).
DH is off work so I might piss off out on my bike for a bit. I also need to dish out some TLC to my old dog (he's also fucked but it's probably just an off day). Happy ufing folks.
Pudding hope you can unfuck some sleep if DD sleeps Today.
My kitchen is fucked and staying that way for half an hour. One of my 12 yr olds Senorita Stroppy seems to have decided that chosing which perfume to douse herself in for school is moré importante than breakfast that needs to be unfucked. Inventive brekkies usually help but I've been too knackered recently, also needs unfucking.
I'll be back when some unfucking has been done.
Did reply on here before but it seems to have fucked off
One wash load washed n in dryer
Living room tidy
Need to -
Hoover living room
Wipe work surfaces
Managed to unfuck sleep for an hour or so this morning. DD will only sleep on my fucking chest between her hourly feeds since lunchtime tho so achieved nada apart from catching up on sky plussed stuff. Does unfucking sky plus hd count??
Watching eastenders all kids in bed then gonna make tea and quick unfuck kitchen
unfucked application form finally
unfucked breakfast for me and dd
unfucked taking to school and picking up
unfucked packed lunch for dd

Can't face pets or fucking bins
Unfucked so far
Yesterday's laundry put away
Still To unfuck
Organise DCs post school run
Weigh puppies, can't be done today so I have no fucking idea how much food To give the bastards
Dinner, fuck knows when I'll have time To do that, I feel a frozen pizza coming on.
Well done on the pets, Mum. I had to unfucking the chickens' food earlier as the dumb clucks had tipped it all out. Must get more tmw, actually....
I have not unfucked much today as am a bit fatigued, but I did decide to try to make a couple of things feel more finished. So the bags of stuff for the chazzer went into the boot of the car, I had a general tidy and left the kitchen in a right bloody state for my poor husband.
Today was fucked, but I unfucked morning. Slinking off to bed.
All day I've been feeling really sick (fucking cold) and had to switch to survival mode, but after I put kids in bed I pulled myself together and put the dishwasher on.
the living room floor is still covered in Cheerios though.
no one cares....
I could pour milk on it in the morning and shout "breakfast is served!"
hmm, talk about two birds with one stone!
Zing @ 2 birds with 1 stone!
Hope you feel better!
Hope you feel better Tomorrow Zing genius breakfast idea
Unfucked shopping, dogs, dog training, dinner - frozen pizza was gratefuly recieved by family - I had cheese on toast, let Rogue dogs in after their épic afternoon's excersise chasing rabbits across the local fárm land, mangled a Chicken for their breakfast Tomorrow, wiped up and put dishwasher on, made a cup and tea and found OH had already gone to Bed
I still need to unfuck a couple of bits for DDs to use for the school folklore presentación first thing in the morning. Long lazy weekend ahead as DDs are off school next week.
Been up since 5 with baby, who is now fast asleep again but ds 2 is now up demanding food.
Not yet managed to motivate myself to unfuck anything apart from the baby's nappy
Right, I'm tripping over my face this morning because it's my last chance to get a lie in for a fortnight (when I say lie in I just mean until half seven or something, instead of 5-something am) and bloody DH couldn't bother his arse to get up with DD, so here I am AGAIN. I should have kicked the bugger out of bed I guess. Passive aggression vibes emanating from down here isn't working to rouse him.
Anyway, I unfucked the oven last night so I need to clean that out. I think first I need to unfuck my brain with tea. Then it's a 20-10 coming up.
Bleurgh I've fucked up on the unfucking because dd has been ill so it's been impossible to get anything done. Am hoping she will be better today but coughs pretty bad and she's just went head first into the end of ds's bed so its not looking too good!
Well done all you less fucked up unfuckers!
Unfucked a drawer of my desk yesterday. Was three but rapidly refucked by dd. Still haven't found the cable.to charge my camera/download pics, which turns out is specific to the manufacturer so has to be ordered online. So will do, and photos for selling stuff won't happen for a while.
But as of 2 days ago I have a schoolboy. Who thinks school is really fun and he wants to go there forever, so I figure that's my achievement of the week. :-)
Right, plan of unfucking action today:
Have a wash on already that is nearly finished, will get it out then take DD to nursery.
When I get back I will unfuck dinner by prepping and getting in the slow cooker
Number 1 priority is birthday present for DP, will go into town and WILL NOT LEAVE without suitable gift
Have mountain of baby clothes that I washed the other day that need ironing and putting away (even though they are unbearably cute!)
General unfucking of living room which thanks to small child looks as though a bomb has gone off
And finally, if I can achieve all of the above then I will go and get my hair cut which is sorely needed!
All dc are up fed and dressed
Packed lunches unfucked
Daughter's toys are out of the fucking closest. No going back now.
Time for music.
Children are fed, watered, ddressed and ds is at school. Shopping done. Errr that's it!
20:10 on living room this morning x2?
If dd ok after bedtime I will do some unfucking in the kitchen
20 min unfuck in playroom should have it perfect
Now. Just need to move off couch!
Fab. Another Flylady failure here. It's my "day off" (ha ha) today which in other words means my one day to unfuck the house. Having read this and looked at the website I am determined to keep it more unfucked on a daily basis from now on so that I don't have so much fucking cleaning and can actually have a fucking day off. Anyway, it's only 10.30 and I have already unfucked the kitchen, living and dining room. Have focussed on clearing and putting away and cleaning as I go rather than deep cleaning anything specific. Now I'm having a coffee break before taking a deep breath and going to unfuck the upstairs which is a big fucking mess, let me tell you.
I just had to stop myself from saying to dd (2) 'right come on let's unfuck this room!'
Bea I am also dangerously close to using it as normal language. . Naughty.
Well after school run I put dd for a nap, she's had an hour so far which is really unlike her! And I even nodded off myself! Now trying to wake up to unfuck! Sleepy!
This is the shit... fucking awesome I didnt really get flylady either, but this I can totally work with..
I have been up and down like whore's drawers.
Unfucked the school run. Thanks to this thread I had the pizza cooked for the packed lunch and all lined up. Sat down then uncle needed to talk. Then sat down and neighbour knocked with veg box delivery that had been left with him. Then uncle wanted another talk. Then Tesco arrived. Then just after that left the postie arrived with a large parcel. Only Approved Food left of the expected deliveries. I have also managed, against the odds, to put on the washer, the dishwasher and unfuck a very small corner of the living room. We are not talking about a house in need of a little light dusting here. We are talking serious shit. A bin bag is nearly full.
Re pizza - ds has been quite keen on the pizza. I got some in the Tesco delivery. I had seriously underestimated the size of of a 99p pizza and now the freezer is humoungously stuffed. Ds will go off pizza any day now, even more likely as I can't eat it, DH can't eat it and DF doesn't like it.
I am sitting surrounded by debris. Off to unfuck some of the chaos.
Mumof3xx - I think you may have your hands full, I'm impressed you are still going for it.
NotCitrus - on my first day of school I hid in a cupboard because I didn't want to go home.
She's still asleep I'm amazed!
Still half asleep myself though but I'm off to try and do a 20/10 well for as long as she sleeps
Yes I know what you mean about the inadvertent swearing - I am in the house alone but keep saying to myself things like "right, we'll just unfuck this and then it's time for a cuppa".
Good going though, have done our bedroom and two bathrooms since my last post.
I am now in the middle of trying to unfuck DD's room but am currently wallowing in a mess of playmobil and schleich animals (she collects them). Off to Ikea next week....hopefully that will help....
I hate play Mobil its the work of the devil
Dd has finally woken after two hours
I managed to wash the mornings pots, put bottles to soak, chop broccoli and stick in a pan to make purée and wipe the work tops
Every room in my house is fucked. I have 'Unfuck my House' by Toni Braxton playing in my head. I find it hard to commit so will probably never come back to say I unfucked it, so I wish you all luck in your own unfucking. But it was nice to be distracted for another 10 minutes while baby naps.
Been feeling drained so not done much but the minimum the last few days. Cracking sore throat today so something's on its way.
Today I have done the dishwasher (empty and fill)
,made some fridge biscuits and have a large vat of apple chutney on the go. I now want to collapse
Can I join? I never got on with flylady.
Where do you start? With the weekend thing?
Do pee'd on my bed last night so I've been concentrating on that this morning, turned round and realised the ret if the place is a tip!
done nothing today.
DH is home early after 3 days of absence - he can deal with it.
I'm ill. I have man flu
Now literally nauseous from carrying.
The Approved Food parcel alone was over 24kg, and I have been lugging washing up and down (we are a non posh house distributed over four floors with v v steep stairs).
Bear was sent home from school with a 'wasp' sting. It must have been a mighty fucker because you can see the massive swelling on his forehead. Poor kid. He is sitting with two ice pops, one on his forehead and one in his mouth.
Looking very takeaway tonight.
There seems a lot of physical fallout on the thread. I'd say 'go for the burn' but I'd say it a bit limply.
Dc collected from school in the rain boo hoo
Prepping babies tea
Feeling urgh to paint
Didn't have work today so did some unfucking.
First I unfucked the car as it was MOT day - got off quite lightly, phew.
Then I unfucked my ironing basket - I don't usually iron stuff but these were all items you can't get away with not doing. It took about two hours.
I am so shit at ironing and it really fucks me off. That's why I try not to do it.
Thank you for bringing Quinoa into my life.
And daughter's room is a model of gorgeousness now. And I am fucking exhausted.
Also managed to take lots to the chazzer today, so am pretty fucking smug right now.
I've just finished unfucking the fucking dog pen. T'is a grim Job <boak> face. Am feeling stabby because of bastard dogs so when I couldn't get my fried egg, for my sándwich, To slide off the fucking slice I lobbed said slice across the kitchen. The 1 dog that hasn't fucking escaped has just unfucked the floor and cupboards of grease for me. Now I have To wipe her fucking slobber off the fucking cupboards.
DDs are on hols now, they've just gone out with friends who are sleeping over
why do I do this To myself on bikes/scooters/ foot To let off some steam.
Will catch up later, too stabby To bover reading and am about To unfuck tea and shortbread before I start dinner.
Gonna really try n focus on my kitchen today needs a lot of work!
So far -
One wash on
Two work surfaces wiped
Pots piled ready to wash
Clothes in dryer
Another wash on
De clutter cupboards and drawers
Wash window sill
Well yesterdays unfucking did not go according to plan, only achieved about half of my aims but did get DP a birthday present so that's the main one out of the way.
Going to set myself some less stretching targets over the weekend, partly as I've got other stuff on, my antenatal classes start today but also I'm already starting to get tired very quickly so I'm going to avoid marathoning!
Happy unfucking everyone!
Fucking love this thread!
Taking DD out in a bit; then once we're back DH will take over childcare duties so I can either unfuck the autumn hanging baskets (currently filled with past it summer stuff!) OR do a run to the chazzer (have 3 binbags full from this weeks unfucking!) depending on weather.
Unfucked the ironing pile last night whilst catching up with stuff on iplayer.
Then need to unfuck a form this evening.
Zing - I have your cold I thought I was 'getting better' yesterday, but feel like death warmed up today.
I will have to find the water thread again later (I haven't been doing very well).
I haven't been able to post for ages because I use IE and can't download anything else It has been torture!!
I'm going to go and do 20:10
twenty minutes with coffee & ten building up the energy to make another one
Unfucked my personal hygiene in the bath
Quick brew then first 20-10
sorry to butt in, but how do you start the unf@cking????
I'm SnotWhite with the 7 sores:
Headache, DryMouth, GreenSnot,BlockedEars, BlockedNose, PersistentCough and Nausea.
I'm in bed and I'm not getting up.
is this man flu?
Zing sounds like you have woman flu, which is a lot tougher
After posting last night I threw up vigorously then went to bed @ 8pm and got up around 11.30am. May stick to unfucking my backlog of knitting projects.
Errr well I've done nothing so far
I am shit
karbea t'is easy, you just decide which space is most importante for you and start there.
So much unfucking To do upstairs, DDs had friends over for one of them things were they stay up all night, what's it called? Oh yeah, sleepover.
Dog trainer will be here in an hour and the last of the nonsleepers is being collected at 1. Have so far unfucked a load of laundry, but that's good when you consider I was unloading the dishwasher at 12.15 this morning
Zing are you sure you don't need To get yee To a Dr? Green snot sounds dodgy. Definitely a case if Woman Flu. Hope you feel better soon.
Proud to have unfucked the dining room yesterday, which has been stuffed to the gills with crap we had to move around when the house was rewired a month ago and everything has just sat there...(cough)
Mumof3xx you have your hands full. Keep posting because it keeps the unfucking in your mind.
Vomiting has hit and hit hard. Yesterday fucked. Today not brilliant. Thank fuck it was set off by food intolerance so I can slope off and get dinner sorted. At 9am. Fucking slow cookers are the dog's nadgers. Or dogs' nadgers. They are so fucking awesome. Brisket, veggies, stock cube, dinner with mash in 8 hours time. I'll peel the potatoes now as well. Then need to fucking remember to freeze the soup that is left after slow cooking the brisket. Then need to fucking remember to use the soup that I freeze.
Apart from that it is a duvet day with added Doctor Who. Ds is crackers about Doctor Who. I am dealing with it.
Zing hope you feel better soon.
Zing - I never get sick?! But I'm Snot--green-White too - except I'm missing a couple of the small annoying fuckers. My throat has finally stopped feeling like I've swallowed razor blades - thank fuck. I can't taste or smell anything - but hey ho. I am full of snot (sorry peeps) and I feel like sinusitis is settling in. I never go to the Drs, but I will immediately if I think I have that, I didn't for a fortnight last time (7 years ago!!) and I am NOT putting myself through that again! How are you feeling this morning?
I hope all other 'sickies' are feeling better soon!
I have to go out and buy smallest niece a present. As much as I love her, I hate shopping and I am in NO mood for it today. I think it's going to have to be put down on the 'Unfucking the jobs to do list'...?
ChippingInNeedsSleepAndCoffee Shopping in this house only exists on line except for ds's shoes. You are brave to shop on a Sunday. Or any other day imo.
Grumble, whine, moan, whinge, vomit, grumble.
Going to unfuck a scarf for bear (ds). Feeling that way out. If I was a cat my ears would be on sideways.
Holy fuck i love this site. Swearing while doing housework is hugely cathartic - who knew?!
Despite sleeping in úntil
OH started nagging midday I have managed a shit load of unfucking
Up and showered before DDs
Breakfast - I had cheese on toast, t'others had self catering
All the washing
Cooked lunch, at 4, with desért
Sat down for 30 mins before bringing washing in
Hung moré washing inside
Did picnic Style food while watching TV with DDs, they are off school for a week and clearly have no plan s to Go to Bed early
Considering we had a late night last night and the sleep over the night before I reckon that was some fucking awesome unfucking
Tomorrow I plan to do Pilates in the morning while everyone else is snoozing.
Hope everyone who is feelling ill gets better very soon.
Planning on using the down time to match up the serious mound of socks I have. Every fucker in the house wears black socks! Apart from bear who wears red on weekends. It will probably take me most of the day. I threw loads out last time.
hugs to all, manly and comradely arm punches to those who don't do hugs.
V busy weekend and now one child somewhat ill so no unfucking here lately. No vomming thank fuck. Feel for you, all you sickies.
Right, I fell off the thread but I've not been doing badly. Someone on the Joy thread mentioned Headspace which is a great way to fill ten minutes. I'm not a woo type but he has a lovely voice.
Sorry you're all spewing. Get well soon, unfuckers.
Right, off to work.
Am on a 10 after some serious unfucking. My house got fucked last week when I had a horrible cold and did minimum necessary housework for survival.
With regard to socks, we have a colour-coding system. DP gets plain black, I get black with coloured bits or Brown, DD only wears knee socks and DS gets navy.
unfucked getting up, dressed and taking dd to nursery
unfucked breakfast for dd,me and cat
unfucked catching up on x factor whilst dh still in bed!!
unfucked 3x coffees and Farmville 2 for 1/2 hr!!
Just found this, it looks just what I fucking need.
But I'm home poorly from work so there will be minimal unfucking today.
Is the app worth it?
yesterday I took everything out of our two kitchen drawers.
put all cutlery in 1 big box, all other stuff in another box - I threw away all the rubbish at the same time (decluttering done!)
put the cutlery holders and all the little boxes that are dedicated for plasters, pens, hairbands etc in the dishwasher, ready for today's sorting.
took about 40 mins
today I unfucked a load of washing before school and finally managed to see my gp about my crazy periods. I need a scan etc but at least its getting sorted too.
did a quick tesco shop, came home & put stuff away, rescued DD who got herself stuck in the dishwasher rack.
filled d'washer with cutlery and about to unfuck another load of washing. before getting DS5 from playgroup.
My cold is almost gone and I feel much better.
I feel I'm in charge!
sending you all lots of energy and motivation to unfuck your habitats.
(note to self:must drink water)
Starting today by just doing something every time I get up from
wallowing the settee. Have started by picking random things up off the floor that have been there so long I stopped seeing them
What the fuck is all this about then?!
Chose to unfuck lots of different areas and stash stuff in the loft. DS helped unfuck the boxes of old vinyl LP's that haven't been used in years and bunged them out if the way, and to my amazement DH started to help and then sorted out and packed away clothes he no longer fits and put them in vacuum bags as well! I am too stunned to unfuck anything else today ....
Have unfucked my bathroom. And a kitchen cupboard I'd been using to store carrier bags, whilst bemoaning the lack of space in my kitchen...
I unfucked my wardrobe today. I have an eight day old baby, so it was mainly packing away maternity clothes other than a few pairs of trousers (I still need the elastication). There are a load of work clothes I won't be able to wear until I no longer need to express bm. So I put them in fucking hanging storage covers. And I retired some shoes that were frankly, cheap shit to start with and now scruffy cheap shit, and put things on proper wooden hangers rather than those wire dry cleaning type fuckers.
Tomorrow is a getting out of the house day with a friend, but she's going to buy my birthing pool off me so I get to unfuck a bit of my kitchen as well where all the bits have been stored.
Have unfucked a pile of annoying paperwork, written 3 letters, and chucked as much of said papers as possible.
Collected ds from first day of after-school club and chucked him and dd in the bath, which prevented everything from getting fucked up again. Though even if it's technically correct I'm not going to call dd a little fucker
despite the constant temptation.
Survived kids' birthday party at the weekend so may get tidier now...
Thought you all might like Motherfucking Homemaking courtesy of JJ Keith.
Glad you're feelling better Zing and getting things sorted with the Dr. I need to talk to mine about periods but he's new and I've only seen him twice, keep fucking forgetting
Today I've unfucked excersise, Pilates- I'm fucking wrecked now.
Shopping, brought home and put away/in freezer
Put away clean things.
I sneaked out early leaving DW for DDs to empty as they don't Get pocket money for Nothing.
Then off into town to join the family, lunch and shopping for DDs to spend birthday money from GPs.
OH has unfucked some decluttering, I need to unfuck my crápula and Get DDs to give up their out grown clothes.
Mum2Fergus t'is about cleaning the Fuck up, but for Those of us for whom the Fly Lady approach doesn't work.
@ I need to talk to him about periods - it sounded like you need to explain to him what they are...
sorry, I'm giddy
Tee hee, Yeah, he's not that new
Just need a quick rant. Spent most of day unfucking what mil thought she had unfucked.
Jeans don't dry under towels and washing powder doesn't get poured on the floor, more than 4 items fit in the washing machine at once. How do you get to 60 and not know how to do the fucking washing properly?
Soup left out in a 20degree kitchen all weekend is not ok on Monday.
If you want to unfuck the ironing feel free, that doesn't mean leaving the ironing board in the middle of the kitchen and ironing one shirt a day.
Rant away Trixybelle I'm Lucky enough on the other side of the world to my MIL but I still remember the, erm, standards
TheYamiOfYawn - The men would just not wear any other colour. I managed to keep bear in grey socks for a couple of years, but now he is insisting on black. Father isn't too bad, at 82 he has a bit more variety. Thank goodness they all currently take different sizes.
Mum2Fergus - linky here
I noticed that the weekly challenge on the tumblr site here is to unfuck a surface per day. I shall take this up with both hands once I stop vomming.
Gib here. Got bored. Actually I've been ill still so watching a load of old classics.
I managed two 20/10 s in the bathroom this morning. It was minging. Still have to do some more to make the place at least decent as mil is coming over. Bedrooms can wait. I still feel rough though
I lost the unfucking thread
I'm back and after 3 days of slogging it out I've very nearly unfucked my study. I've filled a box with paper for recycling. I've filed all my paperwork. I've cleared out all the magazines I've read and moved the unread ones to where I feed DD in the daytime. I've cleared my desk so I can reach the mac without throwing stuff on the floor and I have a pile of stuff to eBay. Just need to shred all the paperwork I don't need to file and dust/Hoover. It feels fucking amazing to have decluttered and cleaned up in there!!!
Pudding you are on unfucking fire!
Slow here due to kids being ill. And me. But a few bits getting sorted.
today I had a choice between catching up with a friend who is now 5 days overdue or tidying up.
I think I made the right decision to see her!
especially because there was chocolate to eat!
kitchen drawers are getting there and I organized dinner already!
Zing, Chocolate with a friend always beats unfucking! (There's a line I never thought I'd write)
If I can sling DD this afternoon I may unfuck the kitchen table - I've not seem its surface for a while as it appears to be DHs dumping ground and I'm bored of asking him to do it. All his stuff will be dumped on the floor of the garage!
Sorry, building I meant to say hope you feel better soon
Marking place. I love swearing and I hate cleaning. This is my spiritual home
Defo right decision there Zing, hope your friend is not too uncomfortable.
Not much unfucking today, up late again, late breakfast, fed dogs, retrieved dogs from street after they escaped to harass bin men, headed into town, now heading back home.
Still to unfuck - nick some prickly plant from over the road to put atop the wall where bastard dogs keep jumping over, dog training, dinner, straighten my fucking hair, take food out of freezer for tomorrow and red wine out of wine cooler, I like my red at room temp. Tomorrow is the most important day in the Chilean calendar and I'm BBQing Chilean stylee but just the four of us.
Meant to say Well fucking done to Pudding, fantástico progress.
Dog training was fucked, bod didn't turn up. Now we will be unfucking that Tomorrow which fucks up my plans for a perfect day.
OH nicked the foliage, we fed dogs and I haven't had time to unfuck my hair. Just unfucked a few days worth of raw food for dogs, have watched a film with DDs, unfucked kitchen surfaces after the carnage from unfucking said raw feed.
Well inspired by this thread yesterday I tidied up in the living room and cleaned the kitchen. Got the dishwasher on last night so didn't have to clean all the baby bottles by hand.
If you are on Android still no app for UFYH but there is a Flyhelper one which has been pinched from FlyLady. It is free for 3 weeks and is customisable so you can set it up wigh whatever list you want daily. It has a handy meal planner bit too which I am finding very useful.
Oh and I put away summer clothes and am going to do a 90° wash for white towels and a 20/10 on my study which is a mortifying shithole at present.
Okay I changed tack and did the 20/10 in the bedroom, which was really more of a 60/10 but it needed it. Might do the last bots after lunch just so it's finished. I never seem to FINISH any rooms.
Today I have unfucked my washing machine with some machine machine cleaning stuff. The filth behind the detergent drawer was disgusting.
Also, I have cleared the top of the chest of drawers in the children's room and with the aid of a £3.99 basket from Home Sense, some pine cones and a couple of windfall apples, created a seasonal nature table.
Today I have finally unfucked a letter to my bank asking for help as am over my overdraft and am getting charged.
Also.. breakfast for me, dd and cat
And.. cooked tea for all
took dd to nursery and collected and unfucked the park!!
Have unfucked some work for tomorrow
Have unfucked both beds as soon as I got up...go fucking me!!
Have unfucked an application to open a new bank account after been with original since I was 16(am 42 next thurs!) Was fucking accepted
need to unfuck a load of washing but have been unable to get my dd out of her uniform yet!!!
see ya later unfuckers!!
I never seem to finish anything either.
today I bought a book for DS1 with vouchers we had for a while, two birds with one stone - not only do I have the book, but I used up the voucher!
(well £3.72 left on it for next time)
I hate that horrible sinking feeling when I find them at the bottom of a drawer and they expired!
also I bought anti- sickness tablets at Boots and the assistant was so impressed with my necklace and rings she wants me to make some for her and asked for my number!
of course nothing might come out of it, but it was nice.
then I had a marathon nap.
I'm planning to finish the kitchen drawers tonight and unpack the Random Basket of Mess.
I've unfucked my kitchen and futility room today and have nothing in the washing basket. I luff my Moby wrap and sling-happy daughter
Now to unfuck dinner - a cheeky jambalaya...
Congratulations on the financial unfucking. I find money the scariest thing of all.
We had to unfuck our finances earlier this year...had a weekly money meeting to discuss it and action points and everything. It did help.
Gradually unfucking the loft to make a spare room.
I have always had Good Housekeeping hidden, but I looked it up in a fit of enthusiasm this evening after getting into Unfucking this past two day after somebody mentioned it on Facebook. Unfucking is definitely for me. I want the whole house unfucked for Christmas, and much of it for mid-November as I'm having some MNer guests stay over.
I am terminally lazy (I have had a bout of depression lately, but I suspect laziness is still a major character flaw of mine), but this system is the dog's bollocks for me- I have made some major inroads the last two days, and am feeling fucking marvellous as a result.
I may unfuck the kitchen bin tomorrow with bleach and everything. It has not been unfucked since purchase .
So it's a big fucking hello from me
<hopes for some kinky fucking discipline from Chubfuddler>
I've just unfucked the downstairs loo while waiting for the kettle to boil
God, I'm a smug fucker.
yes, money scares me too. I always get rid of it quickly
DD won't settle. This is annoying. Doesn't she know I unfucked the living room earlier and now I want to sit and enjoy it?!
Oh, I'm screwed with money (gone over OD limit), but Unfucking my post yesterday meant that today I worked out when I'm next getting money in, and I went through my bank statement and cancelled £22 of pointless direct debits I've been too lazy to tackle. I need to take a leaf out of ep's book and do a bank letter really.
<gets out pom-poms>
do it BOF just fucking do it!
I think she knows. she's best mates with mine and they discuss their evil plans on TotsNet.
mine is currently trying to escape.
she has a sleeping bag on - makes no difference.
she is Miss Houdini.
I bet there's an actual genetic connection somewhere - I'm Hungarian and so was he.
Have unfucked enough to keep house as clean as it was last night despite dd's best efforts to spread custard and bolognese onto every surface of the kitchen.
Also got ds to tidy most toys off the floor so the cleaner can actually clean tomorrow instead of just tidying.
Firstly, I have not slunk back to bed
yet, so yay me being all motherfucking adult. I have cancelled my Times subscription on the phone, washed the few dishes from breakfast, and unfucked the bastard bin with bleach and everything! I am unfuckingmazing.
BOF yes you are!
wish me strength - I'm cleaning the car today.
It's an 8-seater (naturally) and still has holiday sand all over it....
Sounds like a biggie...you going to 20/10 it?
I notice that Flylady wants you to get dressed and showered before doing anything. I am just going for the unfucking version- putting a bra on. A bra means business.
I don't have my fucking bra on yet.
I need to pack as we are going away at 6am and DH is away for work till late. DH, me, baby. She's sleeping. Probably a good time to 20/10 it yet I'm watching This Morning. I did cut her nails. Go me.
Kick up arse required.
Get that bra on, Trixy. Honestly, its a key step
Hello, is page 16 of messages too late to join? My flat and life both desperately need unfucking ...AND I'm wearing a bra? So am I good to join?
anote just don't tell Anyone you're joining on pague 16, they never notice
All that got unfucked here yesterday was food and wine, plus dishwasher followed by moré cake
I'm back in Bed taking full advantage of OH having gone out and DDs still being alseep. Do need to unfuck the dogs but their breakfast is deforsting as I sip tea.
Off to catch up with all the goings on up thread.
Ooo thanks adora, good tip. I'll blend in with the natives.
But can I just ask, before I mingle, how one gets going with unfucking? Is it just the 20/10 principle, and you start on whatever is most urgent ? Or is there a place to begin? (you can tell I'm a hopeless unfucker already, can't you...)
There's a daily checklist here. I'd start with that.
There's an array of unfucking advice on the link on page 1, goes to the website. I always start by decideing which área is most important to me, in my case it's making my bedroom feel luxurious by, erm, cleaning the fucker. I make decluttering an onging process and avoid marothoning like my life depends on it.
A guest asked to use the loo today.
<slinks away and dies in a corner>
If there was a fire, I'd grab a bra first. I cannot manage without a bra on.
Last weekend vomiting, this week so far bad periods, stomach pains and bear waking in the night, not much unfucking - loads of self pity.
In thirty minutes I will go and pick up bear who was a snot monster this morning, grumble about dinner, fuss DH (who is, to be really fair, having a shitstorm time at work) then collapse in bed. In between I'll sneak on loads in the dishwasher, washing machine etc.
Tomorrow is another fucking day.
Great, thank you for those steers. I've started ... sort of. Well I'm contemplating starting - I feel that counts .
<<<regularly clean my FRIDGE? God I had no idea >>>
I have on both a bra and shoes <triumphant rock devil hand>
Zing we need to keep an eye on those critters in their sleeping bags. DD kept rolling onto her stomach last night and doing press ups in hers
because she was stuck I think she was training so she can get big and strong and escape more.
Trying to do some work here and then my plan is to vacuum. I also put laundry away and emptied the draining board as I went along. It is amazing the difference those two things make! It means I keep cleaning the kitchen as I go.
I am going to splash out and buy a bottle of bathroom cleaner for each bathroom so I can do the FlyLady 'swish and swipe' when I'm in each one.
I find the FlyLady routines on that FlyHelper app quite useful once I've customised them (i.e. deleted 'get up and weigh self'. If I got up and weighed myself I would crawl straight back into bed.) The meal planner is good too. Much easier having everything on my phone.
For bathroom cleaning, I really Luke the scrub-free spray from Lakeland. It smells strong and is probably full of vile chemicals, but it makes everything gleam with very little effort.
Know what you mean about bra vs no bra days....days not at work are usually bra off days, only sling one of if have to leave the house for something! Lordy I am a slut, no wonder I have to loads of areas to unfuck yet...looking generally much tidier since I've been following this thread though!
I can't do no bra days <clearly has ishoos>, but Today I did clear the draining board, seperated out the mugs I'm going to pack -long story and oh so boring- fed dogs, retrived Rogue dogs from street and inspired by Lisa, to drown your sorrows Lisa, put a spare bog roll in the downstairs loo for when the current one runs out.
Then we went out. Tomorrow I seriously need to unfuck the washing machine, t'is fucking mouldy <boak face> and the shower, same sitch. I used to have strong aversión to extractor fans so insisted we build this house without them, big mistake, fucking huge.
shobby I'm with you on that!
I have bra-time and bra-free time.
bra-time is everywhere out or if male non-family members are in the house.
bra-free time is home and schoolrun
in the winter as I have a big winter coat to cover me nicely.
Can I be involved? My habitat needs unfucked but good!
Is there a schedule, like FlyLady?
the more the merrier!
look at the link on the first post.
then get your arse in gear!
Well, got some work done this morning so can now start unfucking stuff. Determined to keep the kitchen clean so need to vacuum in there and also hall, stairs and our bedroom. Having a 'can't be arsed day' so probably won't make much progress but will maintain! I did empty all the bins in the house which filled an entire sack
Also managed to take some of the chrome off the ensuite shower plughole with that Mr Muscle overnight stuff Dingbat!
Friday is my day 'off' when I do most of my unfucking. I have just got my frigging power tools out and sanded the shit off my metal gates ready for repainting. Just had a man in to paint our sills, make new side gates etc so trying to make the rest of the outside look tarty smart.
Beautifully sunny and warm too so lots of fucking washing done too.
Can I unfuck our filth on Android? No iPhone here, Samsung Siii mini.
I need to be unfuckified, pretty desperately :D
My house is fucked. Give me some fucking inspiration to clean the shit out of the kitchen once I've collected the kids from school.
No Android app sadly.
Yami it will only get worse. Do it like a fucking adult!
unfuck your kitchen like a fucking adult and stop fucking whingeing!
Moral no android app but there is an Android app based on FlyLady called FlyHelper. It's free for 3 weeks and then if you want to keep it you just pay about £2. You can customise it too so replace the FlyLady stuff with UFYH stuff. I'm finding it really good, especially because there is a little meal planner bit you can type in dinner plans, which reminds me to leave stuff out of the freezer.
Lots of vacuuming and some washing here.
Zing you enjoyed that far too much
I fucking did! especially as I was still in bed having a rest after my nap!
Had a week off due to illness/laziness
Someone help me get fucking started again?
Get fucking started, mum. It will be back to nice in a few 20:10s. and you will be able to relax in a non-shithole.
Lacking in motivation have been sat about eating toast and drinking tea since 7am
have unfucked behind the cooker today,, yeah me!!
(it was manky)
have unfucked my dd school uniform ready for nursery next week
have fucking sewn up the hem on work trousers (job I'd put off forever!)
have unfucked the toilet.. sparkling clean
have unfucked getting dressed and breakfast and dinner for me and dd
have unfucked some washing.. need to take it up fucking stairs and put it the fuck away!!
I know I am Fucking late, but can I join the Fucking party?. I probably won't be able to unfuck much today (not well) but I think I may have found my spiritual home here.
Unfucked so far -
Kitchen floor mopped
2 x washing
I'm finally unfucking school uniforms x4:
-got jumpers for DS1 & DS2
- checked all shirts & trousers for DS1, DS2 & DS4 and made a list of everything I need to order
(DS3 is away till tomorrow, he's is easy though I have all the next sizes up for him)
that's it but I'm worn out.
we also went to view 2 different houses and in between I had to take DS1 to sing at today's wedding (then back again to pick him up) - so bit of an in & out day.
done one load of washing, 2 more to go.
Tomorrow will be Folding and Putting Away Clothes Day.
you can never be too late! Welcome!
<Gives Yoni welcome high five and slaps with wet tea towel - get to work!>
I fucked off out for the day but DH took advantage of the quiet house and mopped the floors I vacuumed yesterday.
I bought DD a couple of new winter outfits so I am going to put away all her summer dresses.
Putting away clothing and clearing the draining board are two small but life-changing steps...!
I'm on unfucking fire!
-sorting socks (we have hundreds, I'm convinced)
- put a bunch of baby clothes away in a box
- sorting DD's clothes - filling another box
I had appropriate breaks, MNing of course!
Oh god, SOCKS! I actually gave a whole bag of them to my mum to unfuck- I can't bear the bastards.
I'm not a big swearer but I love this stuff.
I had to go back to bed this afternoon (full of nasty cold). Dh is st work tomorrow, and I have decided that I am going to be un-fucking-brilliant.
I had to come back on here to say: I bought 2 of those vacuum bags. Spare towels / duvets / pillows are driving me batshit but we get occasional plagues of visitors so need the fuckers on standby. They will be shrunken like heads in the wilds of PNG.
<disclaimer: I don't know if they do headshrinking in PNG. But they do so much other weird shit that it seems probable>
The towels will be shrunken, not the visitors. That is the kind of poor grammar that can end with a visit from the police.
Not a lot of unfucking going on here , had not much sunshine so only 2 Loads of washing in the last 2 days, should be able to Get the rest done Tomorrow though and DDs still off school Monday. They tack a teacher training day on the end of each holiday.
The maín thing to unfuck Tomorrow is getting DD1 (preteen soap dodger) to take a fucking shower. It's amazing, she's into make up but doesn't need a clean face to put the stuff on to, oh no.
I have bubble wrapped the mugs, need a box to put them in now, plus a few other bits from the kitchen that I don't want broken. Am currently unfucking the last of a bottle of red now that everyone else has
finally fucked off to Bed and I have some Me time. Need to freeze Chicken porciones and put dishwasher on before I toddle off to bed.
Hope you feel better Tomorrow Yoni
Soap Dodger is in the shower, I understand hair is actually being de-greased as I type
I've unfucked one end of the loft this afternoon. Rearranged some of DS's old clothes/toys boxes so I'll be able to tell what ages they're for when DC2 gets older. Brought down four boxes of my clothes, to replace the maternity sacks I've been wearing for the past six months. There are now three piles: wear now, wear back at work (when expressing), wear back at work (finished expressing). And an embarrassingly large box of miscellaneous underwear - if I fucking find that I have more than five underskirts I'll fucking flagellate myself.
I unfucked all school uniforms! all of them!
I have sorted most of the socks too - so no more excuses in the morning for not getting dressed on time due to not finding the clothes/don't fit/dirty....
very pleased with that!
I need to unfuck my entire fucking house and I don't know where to start.
I have a large 5 bed house (4 DC 2 large hairy bloody dogs and one cat) absolutely packed with stuff (clothing books and piles of unsorted paperwork seem to be a speciality).
Any advice? Where shall I start? Please bear in mind that this place is like the Forth Bridge, I have a job (freelance) and I don't actually want to top myself.
I have unfucked loads in the garden today.. been fucking glorious here.
I have unfucked breakfast and dinner for us all. I unfucked the washing up. I unfucked myself in the bath and a face mask.. been waiting to do that for fucking ages.
see ya later unfuckers..! xx
duchesse.. pick 1 thing and just start.. do 15mins then stop.. relax
do some more later or tomorrow and don't think about it again until you get on with it.. do it bit by bit... gd luck x
I hoovered my grill yesterday. Croissant crumbs everywhere. Couln't be fucking arsed wiping them out. Hoover is the way to go.
I am slowing working on unfucking my house - the kids, it's the bloody kids I tell you - they fucked it up, it was empty before they fucking came along....
But then I (re)started work and it's all gone to hell in a handbasket
again need a kick up the proverbial to get going again.
Meals have been unfucked, including dog's, DW is on, I'm sitting down with a coffe and DDs are avoiding Bed because Tomorrow is teacher training day. They've unfucked all their laundry, I unfucked the drying of their laundry.
Need to Get to Fuck over to Zing's water drinking thread, currently look and feel like a fucking raisin. Tomorrow I need to unfuck a meal plan and shopping list.
Duchess is there 1 área that's moré important for you than the rest? If so I'd start there and stick to what ep1977 suggested. Good luck.
Nah, it's all fucked. Today's project is to re-purpose four throws into two door curtains to stop the inevitable winter draughts. That will get rid of the throws and blankets that have been lying around for months waiting to be recycled.
Then (ha!) I need to Zebo the wood stoves.
my Singer sewing machine is now serviced, new belt added and ready to roar.
it's an old treadle one (made in 1917! ) and a real beauty and I can't wait to make something on it.
I cleaned the dining room while chatting to the guy who worked on my machine.
plus another load of washing done.
I feel it was a productive morning - including paying for chess club on time!
I'm going to nap now - DD was up until 2am (teething).
I have the baby sleeping on my chest otherwise I would be upstairs unfucking some work I promised to do from home before said baby arrived. Oops.
Let me just finish unfucking this cup of tea, and I might even put the mug straight in the dishwasher, just for shits and giggles.
Sitting in the study on the computer surrounded by piles of stuff and dust....we were rewired and everything just got chucked in here as a dumping ground.
Must unfuck the desk at the very least but the scale of devastation is putting me off.....get a grip!!!!!!
...and I must just say hoovering a grill is just genius....my whole life needs to be hoovered!
I used the crevice tool. Worked a treat.
quote of the day :
"Dust never sleeps"
- Barbara the cleaner (Miranda Hart in Not Going Out)
where are you all?
I unfucked freezer - currently making lunch for two little ones out of previously cooked leftovers
- 2 cubes of apple puree ( DD is 17 months! )
- 3 cubes of brown rice mush
- a small portion of fish
- rice and peas
- small portion of bolognese sauce
- small portion of chicken pasta
all heated and mixed together.
they will love it or hate it.
I'll report back!
Unfucked baby clothes stash from 1 to 18 months. Now know what the gaps are, which means I can go shopping!
Still haven't tackled my underwear mountain. It is glaring at me. Will definitely come out with a lot of ill fitting bras. How do I find out how to donate them to a refuge or Women's Aid or something? Would my HV or the Children's Centre know?
Turned the mattress this morning with DH. So, before putting next set of linen on, can unfuck the collection of mattress protectors, wrong sized sheets etc.
Alright, alright, I've done a teeny bit of unfucking. Not as much as hoped but my fucking health is fucking shit and my fucking body won t do my fucking bidding. So I'm just bloody getting by and doing what I can.
if you have problems with your health then getting better comes first!
kids loved lunch btw.
unfucked all shoes in basement
Zing kids are generally quite weird, I find. Being sick for 18 months means there is quite a lot of unfucking to do. .
Building definitely Health before cleaning, don't over do things.
I. Am. Fucking. Shattered.
Didn't sleep last night, got up to do breakfast and chuck packed lunches in the bags, then went back to Bed while OH did school run. I was rather rudely awoken by my stomach demanding food. Having got up again to resolver that situación I decided to unfuck the kitchen, cleanies removed from dishwasher and put away, breakfast detritus in the bin and dirty crockery and cutlery neatly hidden away in aforé mentioned dish washer.
Zing my DDs used to eat wierd combos too.
Duchess Well done, that's oficialy Two jobs unfucked.
I need to phone the bank to order a replacement card but can't currently strong a sentence together. The important bit, cancelling the one I lost, is already done. There were no dodgey transacciones so at léast I know I lost it rather than something having pilfered it.
I'm going back to Bed.
Back from vomit weekend - bear not me this time.
I've got dinner in the slow cooker, hope it will be cooked in time. It will have been in four hours on high, that's diced lamb cut small plus veggies cut fine. Otherwise it's chippy tonight then stew tomorrow.
I've ironed the shirts for tomorrow.
Now just need to get enthusiasm going to take bear to martial arts.
I am sitting in chaos, I haven't even finished the prologue let alone Part One the First. That's after I unfucked two (yes, two!) canopies that we bought @ ten years ago and then forgot.
Father is selling at a table top sale on Saturday, which coincidentally is the day I am hoping to take the books we want rid of to the charity shop. We will have a boot full. That is, we will have a boot full if we get rid of ten percent of our books and there may still be some on the back seat. I have three days to unfuck it.
I may not be posting on here much.
Comradely slaps on the back to all.
All I have done so far today is strip the bed and bung linen in the wash But going to have a mini-marathon now, including a dash to the butcher's so I can get something for dinner...
I had a snooze, then popped out, then school run and since coming home I have unfucked snacks, dishwasher, dinner, feeding dogs with OH, clearing away, cup of tea and spot of TV with DDs. Didn't call bank, will do that after Pilates Tomorrow.
I gave up again for a few days
But am back now
All up fed and dressed
Oldest 2 dc off to school
Dog muck cleaned off pram wheel
Living room tidy
Living room hoovered
Shopping delivered and put away
And because I haven't sworn yet
Fuck shit wanker
I'm so confused today.
DH is working from home because we are going to a concert tonight. DS1 is singing there so he was home this morning (and slept in!) so he'd be ready in time for a friend taking him - they have choir practice from 1pm.
so having both of them in the house just threw me - so weird.
I keep thinking it's Saturday - but then I remember I have to pick up the others from school and it goes back & forth, so that puts me in a panicky state as I don't want to forget the school run!
I have to prepare for dinner way too early too.
T'is a nightmare Zing, having family members at home when they are not supposed to be, hope you all enjoy the concert.
This morning I have unfucked my manky hair, yesterday I was just too tired to do anything so it got left
Will see you all after Pilates, when I need to unfuck calling the bank.
I unfucked the doormats! Threw out manky old ones, cleaned the step,mput down pretty new ones (cheap fromTK Maxx).
Also unfucking wills...needed new ones, MNer mumblechum helped out, just need to complete the process. If you decide to use her, please mention me, cos I'll get some kind of referral thing. .
Dinner in the slow cooker. Huzzah for me.
I have unfucked big time today. <back pat> Sorted all the fucking clothes waiting to be rehomed/ repurposed/ recycled all over our room. Result: One big bin bag full ready to be distributed among friends' children, one big bag to be recyled, one big charity bag, one ebay pile. In addition I received my new sewing machine this morning, made a quick phone call to a friend who works with refugees and found a willing taker for my old sewing machine! Quite a good morning's work really. Hope the mojo sticks around...
Talking about doormats- my fucking dog totally fucked the coir door mat in the night- stupid pooch eats them- that's the second in a year. It's set into the floor and a non-standard size so I have to go to a special shop and have it cut to size each time, at a £££ premium.
Wanky cunt flaps.
How do I get wood stain off my hands? We haven't used woodstain for at least ten years. I have no idea when we last used it or what for. However it is all over my hands.
Fucking bag of apples foisted on me - need to unfuck those tonight. I'll turn them into stewed apple and freeze.
If I went any slower I'd go into reverse.
Had booked for first night away without bear, who is six. It's been cancelled on us. Need to get past that.
Also unfucked a load of gas powered heating units/camp stoves to next door. Why I bought a dozen cans of butane in November 2006 I have no idea except I was eight months pregnant and away with the fairies.
Off to sort out top for bear.
duchesse that will make pooper scooping interesting!
Have now unfuscked the slowly mouldering bowl of plums in the kitchen- they'd been staring at me for a few days. Cutting them up and bunging them in the jam pan soon put paid to that.
No unfucking today because of visitors but have been maintaining rooms so house is presentable!
On a separate note: crab apples. What can I do with them? We have them in our garden, not ripe yet but don't want to waste them / leave them for the birds.
FunnyRunner Apparently you can make crab apple jelly which is good with pork.
Crab apples are what apples were before horticulture made them fit to eat. In the Middle Ages they were used to produce verjuice, which was used like vinegar. I collect cook books and food history books. Read them, never use the fuckers.
Well done Building that's some fucking awesome unfucking. And everyone else of course, 'cept me. I have been shopping, un loaded dishwasher, refilled it and flicked the switch plus scoured the house, okay DDs' rooms, for towels and put Those on to wash. I seem to have by passed lunch, must unfuck that forth with coz my stomach is a rumblin'.
Still need to call the bank.
AdoraBell NEVER SKIP A MEAL! Sorry for shouting but I can t imagine going without food approx every two hours. .
I've looked and there's nuffin I wanna eat <whinges> fink I'll 'ave cheese wiv crackers for a stop gap. I usually need to eat regulares, like every 4 hrs at léast but then some days turn out like this. Anyway am currently unfucking the kettle, it's furred up.
Oh what a marvellous site.
I tried Flylady years ago but OMG was she fucking awful.
UYH fab though.
Have unfucked my front room
Off to unfuck the rug I started for the DCs.
Thanks Lisa <Ponders starting cottage industry in verjuice production>
I should be in bed. I'm pretty sure that is in both systems (UFYH AND FlyLady).
I started Today in fucking amazing fashion
Breakfast for brood
Slung food in pots, then into lunch bags
Folded clean towels
Waved DDs off
Tried to call bank, no luck
Put clean towels away
Cleaned out dog pen
Put dustbin out
Watered indoor plants and seedlings on kitchen window sill
Cleared breakfast things away
Decantad cereal from torn packet to glass jar
Had some breakfast
And then it all came to a grinding halt. I need to Get a few bits but also need to consverve my petróleo so have to wait for school run. Am about to have some lunch, nearly 1.30 so better than yesterday. Currently working out what from my shopping list will have to wait úntil next week when new bank cards should be here, fx. Just done a face pack and put sunblock on ready for when I Go out later.
started to unfuck the oven, but, fucking hell! I tried steaming it up but that was not successful. i hate that horrible oven spray, plus it will really look like shit after the next bake... hate ovens ffs.
I hate ovens too.
Did a little moré unfucking after lunch, shopping, school run, snacks, Sent DD1 to talk to Daddy about her school project, she needs eléctrical bits and he has a bit of everything, as long as it's car/boat/eléctrica related, dinner, cleared away and put dishwasher on, spot of TV, fed dogs, cleaned kitchen floor, flopped onto sofá. I'm fucked now.
I've realised why Flylady doesn't work for me. At the point when the web site says "and you will dry your sink everytime you use it" I thought "no I fucking won't" I did keep trying, but this is so much moré me.
Might give this a try. Polishing the sink every night never appealed.
I'm a changed woman! I changed our bedlinen this morning before going to school. fucking amazing.
Fuck yeah! You go, girl! Woop!
I have a Tesco delivery, a Royal Mail redelivery and a fruit/veg box delivery this morning. I also have to empty the kitchen so it is possible for bear and DH to make soup tomorrow, as bear has found a recipe and wants to try it. He is six and three quarters, I am not sure it is going to end well. I will hide for the duration.
To properly clear the kitchen I need to get some stuff into the walk in cupboard. The walk in cupboard is blocked by ironing (it is that bad). I think the best I can do is do a chunk of ironing to lesson the mountain and then crack on with the kitchen, including stewing a backlog of apples to freeze.
Thinking about it, I'll probably have to clear a load out of the walk in cupboard as well. I will also have to clear/rearrange the fridge to allow for soup ingredients. There are not enough hours!
I suppose I should get off, then.
(already unfucked dishwasher, lunches, load of washing, so could be worse)
You know when you THINK you have plenty of time - and then unexpectedly you don't? That.
Visitors had to postpone visit till tomorrow, giving me loads of time to make beds etc. Only now they are coming tonight after all. And I am out!
that's a bit shit.
a bit of unfucking here today, so far
- carpet cleaning (MrZing)
- climbing Clothes Mountain
must must must:
-order Next stuff - uniforms, underpants, shoes
-sew labels on clothes
-order labels for DS5
-iron my fabrics
MrZing is taking all the Zinglings to PILs tomorrow for lunch - so I'll have a few hours to
enjoy the peace and quiet do these chores
For the first time in over a year my car now fits into the garage again! oh, the unfuckery that's been going on around here....
Not much done so far today,
Put away half the washing
Ditto kids baths
I want to -
Tidy sweep n mop kitchen
Rest of washing
Sorry I've been a bit absent... How the fuck is the unfucking going? Are we collectively unfuckers?!
My house is being spectacularly unfucked this weekend. If DH keeps on his current unfucking train he'll have unfucked his study, the lawn, the futility room and a tip run. I've unfucked my study, our bedroom and the kitchen. I've still got to unfuck the dining room and bathroom and make the bed in the guest room.
My house has fucking never been so unfucked. I fucking LOVE it.
The reason for this unfucking hive of activity you ask? DF is coming to meet his GD tomorrow
(Bets on how long til it's fucked again?!)
Well done Pudding !
I don't know why it works, but it does. I did have a day of rest, being sunday and all.
school ties - labels sewn on. I had an inspiration to sew on labels forcmy two who are currently there and the one who is starting next year!
genius or what?
13 fucks in one post! Adora look out, we might just have a new champion!
Not sure if I should be proud or not
<Passes trophy to Pudding>
I have a day off, from Pilates. Things unfucked so far
Breakfast for the mob
Assembled packed lunches
Dealt with preteen 'my leggings have disappeared' rant.
Booted family out for school run
Reviewed emails, responded to 1
Sat down with a coffee.
My must do list is as follows
Eat some fucking breakfast!
Find my little stash of cash
Find fucking test resulta to take to Dr. for DD2
Get some shopping, poss Go into clínica and ask ever so nicely for another copy of said resulta
Take DD2, with resulta, to see Dr.
Do summat about dinner, Fuck knows what as Dr. is at 6.30 in the City so won't be home úntil nearly 9 and no time to come back and cook before, unless I Pre-prep summat. Which depends on whether I have Go to the clínica. I really need to Get of
my arse MN and look for the resulta.
not much today but I labelled all the clothes fir DS3 & DS4 last night.
pleased as punch!
new uniform for the older ones arrived today - I'll sew labels in tomorrow night when MrZing is back.
I'm very popular with my kids today - I bought a new dvd today which they can watch while they eating pizza, picnic style.
Part of loft unfucked, and Christmas presents sorted into gift bags (accidentally got into buying Christmas bargains in the sales and have heaps now. Yay and...umm.... hm.)
Am going to hoover loft this afternoon for the first time in probably a year, and then it will really feel like progress.
no unfucking here, father has had a stroke, doing well and back home but exhausted.
Not much swearing here so I thought I would share this linky
Seriously good day spent unfucking the hideous study that I couldn't see for piles of papers and rubbish, am now sat smugly surveying an undusty desk and computer...with a mountain of paper to shred!
Also managed to persuade DH to go to A&E and get his knee unfucked that he has been moaning about (I think its broken, something is flapping about inside...) turns out to be a bit swollen, nothing broken or missing but the three hour wait was worth it just to stop the moaning!
I think I've found another argument in favour of tumble driers.
Not only do they avoid the damp, condensation and mould that wet-draping can cause, but you can take the stuff out, fold it, and put it away. You weren't really going to iron it anyway.
No washing heaps here.
Plenty of other unfucking needed though. Man is coming to finish shed this week. I sense a tip run coming on.
That's a damn fine argument there Piglet but I still can't justify using a drier while I have this south american sun and dry climaté. You carry on though.
Fuck all unfucking has been done this week and now I'm having a late lunch so I predict only moderate unfucking this arvo.
Shall report back, if there's anything actually worth reporting.
How's your dad lisa?
We've had an interesting week involving a&e
I've do e my normal level of unfucking, washing, dishwasher etc but not much more
Will get back to it soon
Lisa sorry to hear about your dad. Hope he's recovering well
At the minute I am trying to focus on maintaining the unfucked areas, rather than unfucking more. Glad I have done as we needed an emergency babysitter the other night and I would have been horrified if I hadn't already unfucked our bedroom.
ive had a look on the website,its not very inspiring is it?the vefore and after photos are from absolutely shit to shit but tidier,i need something more inspiring!
Fuck, just started unfucking my habitat today but everything I unfucked DS4 and DS5 fucked again. So basically it's all fucked. Fuck!
How did my habitat get so fucked
The unfuck list......
Wet washing in dryer
Strip 3 beds
Bedding in washer
Put away pots
Put away dry washing
Clean sink (kitchen)
De clutter kitchen
Stick stuff in shed
Makes me feel like being bloody sick
Good Lord Mum you can't do all that! I didn't even read the list but assuming it is not a list of individual Lego bricks to be picked up, it is not humanly possible to do all that today.
Do you have help? They need to do half.
If not, cross off half.
Don't try to do it all today, obviously.
Fuck me, we aren't trying to kill ourselves with cleaning. .
Standards have seriously slipped in this house!
So far I have -
Wet washing in dryer
Stripped 3 beds
Made dd a bottle
Put washer back on again
I'm back! Had a lovely week with my DF, DSis and DN visiting but my house is now re-fucked.
Unfuck list for today:
Dishwasher unload and reload
Kitchen sides cleaned
Living room tidy
Hoover through downstairs
Put clothes away in bedroom
Hoping DD behaves herself and sleeps well today so I can get it all done! I have choc chip cookies to treat myself at the end of it
Well. DD was a 'mare so I unfucked the dishwasher and 2 loads of washing. That's all. #sigh
Tomorrow is another day, right?!
Fell off the wagon, again, must try and get stuff done Tomorrow. Washing machine needs de-molding <boak face> as does shower cúbicos and I forgot to buy the spray. There's loads of folded laundry to put away too. Futility room seems to have thrown up over itself and the kitchen is hiding under the shopping that didn't Get put away before the dog trainer turned up. DD1's bedroom has exploded, that's the only feasable explanación for it.
I've been far too busy thinking about meal and snack ideas, and getting lot's of help on MN, for OH now that he has
finally accepted realised that he has a problem with wheat.
I hope to have some unfucking to report Tomorrow, am surprised this place has stayed relatively clean. Ish.
<twirls while polishing halo>
I got all the bins Emptied, dog pen cleaned -and garden too-, Chicken packets taken out to dustbin after feeding dogs, moré garden cleanened, all before the bin men arrived am currently sipping tea and listening to the dust cart make it's way round the córner. OH put the dustbin outside Pre-school run, he likes to feel usefull.
Other than that little lot I have achieved the following, so far-
Breakfast for family -unfucked
Assembled packed lunches -unfucked
Shoved family out the door -unfucked
Turned off all the lights DDs had left on -unfucked
Opened DDs curtáins -unfucked
Put away some of their irónica clothes -unfucked
Rewashed a pillow that Sat in the washing machine over night -unfucked
Put vinegar on bathroom sinks to descale -unfucked
Cooked food for OH post school run -unfucked
My breakfast -unfucked
E-mail to teacher -unfucked
Still to do, oh so fucking much! Still, it's only 11.40 here so I have plenty of time
Ironed clothes not irónica clothes.
Still maintaining rather than unfucking
There is so much that needs unfucked. Maybe I should make a list of the unfucking areas and do a small one a day.
Did fuck all unfucking yesterday as had a lovely day at a spa with women from work, returned to find DH hoovering the stairs (pause for staggered amazement) bless him but still totally unable to operate the sodding dishwasher....I thought it was blokes that were supposed to be the technical types (plainly not if it involves washing up)..., now up at stupid o' clock as can't sleep and due up for work in less than two hours.. I guess if I started shredding the paper mountain in the study at this time the whole bloody house will awaken...not much unfucking you can do silently!
The android app is now available!!
In the spirit of unfucking I found the link myself:
Feeling slightly smug today, makes up for slacker unfucking performance last week....
Shredded aforementioned paper mountain...hurrah! Compost bin loves me!
Have filed new paper mountain as it comes through the front door, using the principle of only touching new mail once , so its either filed where it needs to be, recycled junk or dealt with...so far its working!
Sorted out my wardrobe so only stuff I actually fit in or will wear in the next 6 months is in there (winter gear), going to charity shop today with bin liner full of summer stuff I never wore this year or doesn't fit. All summer clothing in those vacuum bags so will sit on top of wardrobe but don't take up muck space...brilliant invention.
Found cheap hotel/spa day/dinner & breakfast deal online for DH's birthday in November so booked that as well, booked haircut and dentist appointments......
Cup of tea time....
<High fives Shobby >
Anyone tried the Android app yet? And is it any good?
Where is everyone???
Where is everyone.....perhaps everyone is busy unfucking...that sounds so wrong.....!
I think I have found my home!
<pulls up a chair and makes self comfy>
I think I've found my home too!! I've been staggering around searching for pages like this!! I've spent years begging people to tell me how they keep their houses clean and I came to the conclusion that everyone else is a robot and has it programmed in already and I'm the only human. Everyone just says "Little and Often" or "You just have to keep on top of it"! I don't even know what that MEANS! I recently went through that How Clean is your House book and made a list of things that needed to be done and then decided to draw myself a timetable (I can't draw either) so I could just look at my timetable and not have to think about what I should be doing. It's worked in so much as my toilet is now clean (sort of) but I have a long way to go. What do I do about boxes of birthday cards??? I recently turned a mini milestone age (!) and have lots of lovely cards that I think will make me happy to read when I'm old and decrepit, but maybe it'll just make me miserable and hanker for my past. But then I realise that I'm already hankering for a past that isn't even really past yet!!! Hmm... Do I need to do more swearing??
Fuck yes. Try it, it's very cathartic.....!
Oh for Fuck's Sake!
You're right shobby... I feel better now!
Ok today I totally unfucked my bathroom while DS was in the bath! He didn't care one iota except when he saw a plastic killer whale pass by to be cleaned... and then again when he couldn't understand why I would want to clean "under the toilet".... I had to point out "that is where you and daddy pee"! he was genuinely surprised. I don't blame him. If I was told "Your Daddy pees on the floor..." I would be surprised.
found you all again!
I bought a standing mixer, which should be arriving tomorrow!
I had to make space for it, so I've been unfucking the kitchen. it
looks worse than ever is a work in progress!
May I join you all (possibly again, can't remember if I already posted on this thread )?
I'm just about to start my first 20minute blitz. Will be back at 11.50
Wow, 20 minutes goes very quickly. I had to add an extra 10 because my friend phoned in the middle.
I don't seem to achieved much other than to half change my bedding (can't find the clean sheet to put on!) and make a start on packing away summer clothes and sorting through winter stuff.
I might increase to 45 minute chunks instead and see if I can make more progress.
I have to say I've been "marathon" unfucking the kitchen since yesterday - because I need the distraction, I have had the time and it needs doing.
apart from the 2 square feet bit of kitchen top which is covered in crap I'm done!
I've also made an orange, lemon and blueberry cake and some mini muffins.
Well done!! Cakes sound yum !
I've just emptied my wardrobe and am a bit at just how many clothes I have...and I haven't started on my chest of drawers yet
because there's too much stuff on the floor to open them . I suppose I should sort that before trying to put the rest away so I can maybe get rid of some of the 20 skirts I've just counted !!!
Fucking hell, fell off the wagon again!
It's so easy to fall off but stupidly hard to get back on!!
I have spent the lat hour moving things but only got about three things in the charity shop pile
Well since my last post I have managed too
Seperate clean washing into 3 piles (one for each bedroom)
Put two of those piles away
Strip my bed
Empty the bin
Collect washing for next load
Made and fed kids tea
That sounds pretty productive
My charity shop pile is a little bigger and I have hung a few things back up in my wardrobe. Will crack on and get the rest of the clothes away then go and feed ds (who has spent the entire day on the Xbox or watching tv apart from 45 minutes of tidying his own clothes!!).
All pots washed
Kids all in pjs
I found this thread this afternoon and downloaded the app after spending all morning nursing my hangover on the sofa. I love the app it's amazing. I especially love the random tasks bit, saves me having to think for myself so much.
So far I have unfucked
The washing up 3 times
The food waste
2 loads of washing
2 loads of drying
3 kitchen cupboards
Hoovered all carpets
Tidied the floordrobe
Made the bed
Put my make up away
Am about to unfuck another load of washing, the rabbits to bed then some washing away and Ds showered and to bed. I need to shower myself too because I'm still in my pjs.
One wash load done
Reading books done
PMSL @ saves me having to think for myself
glad you got into it!
Still no new unfucking done here BUT I have been maintaining really well which helped with two lots of guests this week! Just needed to run the vacuum round before arrival as everything was tidy
On the app front... I'll be honest, I found the UFYH one disappointing. The Flyhelper one is MUCH better day to day because you can input your own routines (and delete any stuff you think is bollocks) plus there is a meal planner which I find really useful. I know the UFYH app is new on Android and they might upgrade features over time but for day to day stuff I swear by the Flyhelper one. You can edit it to have stuff in your routine like 'unfuck washing' or 'clear the fucking draining board!'
thanks for info!
I expected it to be free! <tight>
Zing I have only ever paid for 3 apps and UFYH and Flyhelper are two of those three <salutes fellow tightwad>
Flyhelper was £0.93 and is proving REALLY helpful for day to day not-descending-into-chaos again. HOWEVER - and to be fair to UFYH app - it is possibly more useful for unfucking stuff, if you're willing to go with it. So far I've sort of flicked through and sniggered reading it but haven't actually put it into practice.
I've been unfucking things gradualmente but not getting time to unfuck updating on here, this bloody RL malarkey keeps getting in the way.
Anyway, washing machine is mold free, should last between 3 weeks and 6 months dependíng if other people <narrows eyes> leave the door open and detergent drawer on the side when I put it there.
Most of the house is habitable, just don't open the kitchen door, I have Emptied the bins though.
About to do some unfucking.
I really need to unfuck the cupboard of doom and Ds2's toys in his room and downstairs before Christmas. I may start today if I'm brave enough.
Have unfucked the rabbits and they have fresh food, water and litter tray. Also unfucked the bathroom bin because it was overflowing.
Hmm, not sure how it is 10 o'clock already. I got up at 7 because my food delivery was due at 7.30 but didn't come until 8.30 so I filled the time unfucking my food cupboard and fridge.
I really need to unfuck the freezer but can't face it today .
I think I need to go and make a list. I can see the day disappearing without me getting anything done.
Oh, the dinner is in the slow cooker ready for this evening so not a totally unproductive three hours !!
Oh yeah, I am meant to unfucking dinner in a slow cooker.... hmm...
