Tuesday - day 2 - Get dressed to lace up shoes

SAHMof1 Mon 24-Sep-07 22:37:16

Well done Trix! Your sink looks great! Who’d have thought I’d be comenting on people’s sinks!! Mine is shiny [proud emoticon].

Will endeavor to be dressed for breakfast and not in PJs when DH leaves for work!

SAHMof1 Mon 24-Sep-07 22:37:50

Ahem – commenting!

Can't believe it - I'm done grin.

Only because DP leaves house really early and I could not go back to sleep and baby still asleep.

Struggling with lace up shoes though. Currently in slippers as opposed to bare feet but will have a look around shoe cupboard for something suitable later.

Also, I'll be away at the end of the week for five days, so need to think how to catch up - any tips from experienced FLYers?

Done grin

But people keep messing up my shiny sink.

Flamesparrow Tue 25-Sep-07 07:56:32

Done... sort of... my jeans are still drying so I am in a clashing skirt and top. No lace up shoes on - I am a barefoot flyer.

Sink shiny,dishwasher washing - no lace ups though!

Can I join in please? Was on the regular FLY thread a long time ago, house was soooo tidy back then <weep>. I'm a SAHMer with 3 dcs (2 at primary school, a toddler at home), drowning in laundry and the usual household clutter. Will go shine sink now, if it can be found under pile of dirty breakfast dishes yet to find their way into dishwasher.

It's lovely when it is working isn't it?

tibni Tue 25-Sep-07 09:36:33

Sink shined! Dressed and kids at school. Will have a quick dash round with the hoover before Im off to the gym!

Have to say only got shoes on because ive been on the school run and I refuse to wear make up when im off to the gym as there is nothing more nasty than seeing sweat running down slap! yuk!

Hope you all have a good day

Morning all

Sink is still shinyish, and I have laced up shoes on [halo] and make up and everything [double halo].

<neglects to mention that shoes and make up were for trip to doctors this morning blushgrin>

I'm from the recent babysteps FLY thread, but fell off the wagon a little due to excessive illness (all of us) and nasty injuries (DS) so am still shining my sink, but the rest is a little hazy!

Will be checking here for encouragement!

Ok so i was dressed to shoes by 8am but then I always am for school run.

Sink is shining too.

My aim for today is to get all of the laundry put away - am I allowed to do that or do we have to do NOTHING but get dressed?

Im in crap mood due to no sleep (27 wks pregnant and starting to get sick!!) so hoping doing some housework might lift my spirits a bit!

McDreamy Tue 25-Sep-07 11:57:25

ooh good you're doing this again... I tried and failed miserably with the last baby steps! sad Can I join this one?

princessmel Tue 25-Sep-07 12:00:45

hello, I was dressed by 7.30 this morning. Sink is shiny and dry too.
I dried everything on the drainer and put it away to keep it nice.

SuperMonkey Tue 25-Sep-07 12:01:35

Pecka - well I've had to do other stuff, the laundry won't wait until we're told to do it!

SuperMonkey Tue 25-Sep-07 12:02:19

Sorry, I mean my laundry not yours! I wasn't making a judgement on the state of your laundry!

mylastrolo Tue 25-Sep-07 13:29:26

afternoon ladies.

At work after school run so had my shoes on boots actually.grin

d/d and friend collected 12.15pm home they are now having a long lunch whilst watching Barney.

To do: shine sink again hmm not looking too bad but it doesn't last long.

paperwork continue from yesterday
think what to have for dinner hmm

getting off here now. To do some work.

Cappuccino Tue 25-Sep-07 13:33:56

do you know I did not shine my sink

but I did tidy up the kitchen

and managed to get dressed grin

Am in two minds about the shoes - it is okay when I am wearing flats, but I am not poncing about doing housework in heels

pagwatch Tue 25-Sep-07 13:38:23

I got up and dressed before kids were up. Claened all around sink and loaded dishwasher. Actually wrote shopping list before going out ( rather than usual headless meander and returning home with crap I don't need and not the eggs/milk/etc that i did).
I have dug out plimpsoles to wear around the house so as to avoid the bare foot/slipper/high heels debacle.
Slightly more excited now I realise that McDreamy will be helping me through this ( ah if wishing made it real - especially now he and Meredith are looking shakey ...again)

dissle Tue 25-Sep-07 13:40:45

I made the decision NOT to switch mumsnet on today till i had done a substantial clean in one room...
So ive gutted my office.
Its all clean, shiny and neat now.
am so proud.
Just going to vaccume the stairs and landing and sort out some thing for tea before i pick up the beast from school...

joy joy joy joy!!!

funnypeculiar Tue 25-Sep-07 13:42:08

dissle Tue 25-Sep-07 13:43:32
