/\/\ * /\/\ * /\/\ Tuesday FLY /\/\ * /\/\ * /\/\(50 Posts)
How did I miss the whole book club this month?
I'll go and get the chosen book out of the library this week
I'm off to run my cheap toddler group so minimal flying. But never mind, still proud of my whole, solid floor!!!
I love cheap toddler groups (mine are both 50p)
I'll be cooking and cleaning (for someone else, so I get paid) this mornin, thn a bi more FLYing and some wallpaper stripping this afternoon.
Ruby your toddler group sounds brilliant! Staining wooden boxes!!! Cool!
We pay £1 per family at ours, but we don't usually do very much creative stuff.
Is my creative outlet I trap the toddlers in a corner and use all the materials!
A bit behind today but 1/2 way through morning routine. Need to get rest done before I go out in an hour. And I'm not dressed yet
Well I am still feeling under the weather, but must soldier on
We are off to our cheap toddler group this morning too, it is not as if we are in bloody Surrey or anything
Morning routine all done
Good morning everyone
I'm still not well but, like TheMadHouse, will be soildering on
I've done most of my morning routine and will also be doing my Tuesday routine which is~
~hoover and dust downstairs
~mop floors downstairs
~recycle old magazines
~clean mirrors and doors
Better go and get started
bianca hope you start to feel better soon xx
I have actually spent most of the morning on Facebook! One of my old school friends has found some photos of when we were all at school.
I HAD A PERM!! I forgot all about it! (I was a huge Kylie fan...and had a perm...so I could be like her!) I look sooo funny!
I don't have bags under my eys, and I'm thin!!! <<SOB,SOB>>>
Washing machine broken... tried to see if hose was broken and semi flooded the kitchen as didn't realise tap was always on and couldn't turn the water off
Cue manic phonecall to dh (who naturally was in a v important meeting) with me sobbing down the phone, dc's bawling- yelling wheres the stop cock
oooohhhhh yadd is it ok now?
I could picture the manic-ness!!
I once phoned DH in a panick, while he was in a meeting.... because a ruddy great pigeon had flown in the back door and into the bathroom (which was downstairs in our old house) and at the the time we had 3 cats...2 of which had the poor thing trapped. I couldn't get the cats out and the pigeon was flapping about like a maniac!
In hind sight...phoning dh wasn't the best plan in the world, as he was about 20 miles away, and god only knows what I expected him to do! He was not impressed to be called out to speak to a frantic, squealing, hysterical wife!!
......hmmm.....breadmaker has been on all morning...smells delicious...going to eat some nice warm bread now
...I'm bored today....
Oh nooo yadda, hope you managed to locate the stop-cock!
I used to be so much better at managing house stuff before I married a practical man who does all the housey things for me - I'm pathetic now and call on dh to do things I'd have merrily done myself in the past!
Luda lol at being bored! Don't you have a hotspot to clear somewhere?!
I've been getting on well this morning
~hoover and dust downstairs done
~mop floors downstairs done
~recycle old magazines
~clean mirrors and doors done
~errands have letters ready for posting
~mission have done one hotspot
Have to collect ds soon, then the afternoon routine begins!
Oh,dear, yaddayah I hope you have sorted it all out now, and the washing machine is fixable.
I'm bored today too luda. I'v cooked a load of lasagne ad spag bol for the freezer so I need to go and clean the kitche, then when ds is asleep I will strip some wallpaper. I'm really not mtivated to do much today.
I tried facebook, but don't really bother wih it. I'm too old I think. No one From my age at my school is evn registered, andthe only job I would like to trace isn't listed. I think the hospital is closed down now.
I like the exta jobs for each day plans. Could anyone who has one please post it for me to copy look at. Mine is way too basic. Today is mop kitchen and that is it. I need to add to it .
Back in a bit.
O yada - how awful!
Let the rest of us Flyladies give sympathy and tea and go and find our stopcocks before we need them! Am sure I have one, but not sure where!!!
I could tell you where it was in the old house!

The toddler music group thingummy I take the DDs to on Tuesdays costs .... £9. £6 for DD1 and £3 sibling rate for the little one.

Jadda I feel for you. Hope you managed to find the stop cock.
well what can I say. I ahave had the morning from hell. DS1 found the pen for the magic track car we have and proceeded to draw track all over the furniture, TV, Walls, leather suit, doors and walls whilst mummy nipped to the loo - So it was a very mad house this morning.
I have managed to get it off the floor, TV, and units with a spray called grafetti remover, but it is still on the suite, walls and doors. No where on the packaging does it say it is a permenant marker - oah, so I have rang the UK import company and am waiting for a call back.
Regarding the suite (which I love) I think I am going to have to resport to ringing the insurance company.
I am a seething mass of hormones at the moment.
Pah....went to pick up ds, and got roped in to write the minutes for a meeting
Had an arguement with DH he's an arse
Came home and found we have run out of bin bags, but everyone was still merrily throwing rubbish in the (EMPTY) bin
Have gardening club after school
Bored and peed off now may go and do some good old ANGRY FLYing
Madhouse I'm a seething mass of hormones too! How very well put!!
(Dh is still an arse though)
Stop cock for the w/m was a little blue one partially obscured by a pipe NOT the big copper one I was frantically turning
Thanks for the tea and sympathy
W/m repair man coming on Thursday, even though I can't afford it
Have mopped, and mopped, and mopped again.. luckily water was clean straight from the gushing tap so at least I can say I have a clean if soggy floor !
