Good morning

Very pleased to say that I'm feeling almost back to normal this morning
Managed to feel well enough to go out to a party with dh last night which was great fun, really pleased the worst of the bug had cleared in time. Very empty stomach so steered clear of alcohol but had fun anyway
Typically woken up at the crack of dawn by the kids this morning (and poor dh had to get up for work early too ) so feeling a bit groggy.

No work for me today (tomorrow instead) so need to get some FLYing done - the place has been neglected over the past few days. Will have a cuppa and come back with a list.

Ohhh early mornings are pants aren't they!!

I have a fair amount to do today, and I have to go food shopping too.

I ordered a new tumble dryer last night YIPPEE! That will be arriving some time next week...worryingly they were not specific so I have no idea which day it will be

NO MORE CRISPY TOWELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ludaloo Sat 24-Feb-07 08:19:09

My List:

~General Pick Up /Tidy
~Quick Tidy of Master Bedroom (as usual have to do a big last minute blitz in the last weeks I don't actually do that much all week, then feel guilty, and need to do it quick before the zone changes! [rolling eye emoticon]
~Food Shop

Have a great weekend FLYers xxxxxxxxxx

ludaloo Sat 24-Feb-07 08:25:43

p.s tort thanks for the link...I will have to invest!
Ivor Oh I am soooo with you on that one! I am not keen on having to go in front of people, let alone to answer questions!

shouldbedoingthehousework Sat 24-Feb-07 08:28:51

Hi Luda

my list~
~put laundry away
~pick up and put away stuff from everywhere
~make beds
~go to PO
~hoover downstairs
~tidy kitchen
~make nice supper
~make lemon drizzle cake if time

That'll do I think - going to get on...FLYing has meant that things never build up quite as much as they used to - I was suprised by how frustrated I felt to be going out last night without leaving the place looking as straight as I like it these days, and then couldn't be bothered to put things straight before bed. The evening routine has become an important part of the day that I really notice the difference when I don't do it. Thanks FLYers

Morning all.

Off out for lunch in a bit so have a good day all

glitterfairy Sat 24-Feb-07 12:14:17

HI everyone. ludaloo I was relaxed until my X turned up. Cant say anything much about it on here because he stalks me on here and then reports anything I say to court but had to get the police involved again and it is so infuriating.

As a result havent got much done yet but am taking the kids out to calm them all down and we will have a nice day.

glitterfairy Sat 24-Feb-07 12:44:14

By the way flyers can anyone tell me how to get glassware sparkly again? It used to be fine in the dishwasher but as time has gone on with hand washing it has got murky.

ludaloo Sat 24-Feb-07 14:26:00

for you GF I really hope he can get sorted out!
I have no idea about the only tip might be to put half a lemon in your d/w and put it on a fairly warm wash cycle. The lemon gets everything squeaky clean!

Well I have now been shopping and put the food away. Next step is to get tidying up!

Hi satin and yadda

ludaloo Sat 24-Feb-07 14:27:34

Oh...sorry, you are hand could still try lemon juice though?

shouldbedoingthehousework Sat 24-Feb-07 17:02:14

hello again. Have made a little progress since last time but not a lot. Nice supper is cooking for the whole family to eat together - smells yummy and having the oven on has warmed up the kitchen a treat

~wm 2nd load in
~dw done
~td on 2nd load
~put laundry away some done
~pick up and put away stuff from everywhere continuously doing
~make beds done
~go to PO forgot
~hoover downstairs done
~tidy kitchen cleaned hob
~make nice supper in oven
~make lemon drizzle cake if time no lemons

Have no inspiration on the glasses glitter - will try to dig out my book of household hints and get back to you if there's anything in there...lemons are always good though

tortoise Sat 24-Feb-07 17:20:34

shouldbedoingthehousework Sat 24-Feb-07 18:26:25

Not quite Tort!

TLV Sat 24-Feb-07 18:41:09

hi all
Been to work today so nothing done in my house

will crack on tomorrow tho

JustIvor Sat 24-Feb-07 22:36:05

Hi to everyone.

shouldbe I'm glad that FLYing is helping you.

luda It's not just me, then! Remind me to mention to you when I see you, someone who I now know who you might well know.

My day has been okay though I had to take ds to a football away match and that was 4 hours gone from my morning. They did win, though, and ds scored 2 of the goals.

We have now got the new bed in dd's room and she is happy with it. The space that was created in the spare bedroom has meant that the new computer desk (£12 in Ikea) has been put together and the PC on it so that's the dining room emptier. We've written out a couple more ads for the local paper to get rid of some more things which will create more space, so it's coming along. We've got a busy day ahead tomorrow. See you then.

tortoise Sat 24-Feb-07 22:38:34

Hi JI!
Well done to your DS.
Glad DD is hapy with her new bed.
i can't wait until ive made enough from selling stuff to get DD her new bed and get DD2 out of her broken cot!

glitterfairy Sat 24-Feb-07 22:39:37

tort yes you are lucky, I have got to know my local police pretty well over the last 18 months and they have always been very supportive. Thanks luda we are all ok and had a nice day anyway.

Not much flying done today although bathroom clean and tidy and washing up done and some washing and drying. Did manage a 45 minute jog/walk though as well which cleared all the morning nonsense out of my head.

ludaloo Sun 25-Feb-07 08:38:09

Lazylou Sun 25-Feb-07 11:44:05

Hello all.

Feels like ages since I was last here! Anyway, I've now changed jobs to work mornings only, so I can fit in uni and housework so I should be around a bit more often!

Anyway, as I have had a few days off, DH and I decided to have a massive clear out. Now everywhere barring the living room and the kitchen is clean and tidy, and space has been created so I'm really happy.
I won't bore you with the list, its really long tbh!

Hope everyone is having a good day!

staceym11 Sun 25-Feb-07 11:53:01
