Very little to do here now. I blitzed it all yesterday. Might make some cookies, might not.

Hope you're having a good day

Morning! Loving my clean sink in a morning!

Am just going to step class, but then will return and do the kitchen. There is a disgusting greasy expel air fan in my kitchen... blush think I need a professional to deal with it but inspired by FLY I'm going to have a go! Also, I'm looking forward to tackling the coat rack, there's loads that could go to charity. smile

Ruby - I'm in for xmas countdown.

lucysmam Mon 08-Sep-08 10:59:19

Hello again,

Still done nothing yet apart from brekky for four and wash the pots! Feel a bit like I'm ignoring my little girl as my mate's son wants to build stuff with me all the time sad But I'm managing to cope with 2 for the mo, which is a relief!

Ruby, I'm in for xmas countdown for sure!

Have decided we're having xmas lunch here & any visitors before 12 ish so we have the day to relax.

tigger santa express is a good idea, my lo would enjoy something like that. Is there a website I could have a look at?

I'm back. I got half way to tescos after work, before I realised I didn't have my purse with meangry so now I will have to go out again in a bit.

Just hung out the washing and put next load onI'm going to make sure my morning routine is done, then go back to shops.

GO - A parcel arrived while I was out, so I'm guessing it is from you. I'll pick it up tomorrow when I've got the car on the roadsmile

ludaloo Mon 08-Sep-08 11:15:22

Hi all smile

Well, house is nice and quiet, 2 eldest kids are at school, DH is at work, just DD2 and I here this morning.

I've bought various other bits and bobs from Avon for my dads wife and my MIL...and the kids....and me grin

I might actually mange to be a bit more organised this year!!


grouchyoscar Mon 08-Sep-08 11:48:25

Understanding and sympathies to those with annoying DH/DPs...Mind you I used to say to DH 'No wonder your second hand' (Mrs GO #2 me)but if fails to work after 5 years of marriage.

Hello everyone, I'm a newbie and on day 4 of babysteps. I feel I've been thrown a lifeline!wink My sink is shiny and I feel good.
Washing on
Bathroom quickly cleaned
Piles and piles of clean clothes finally put away! grin
Just writing out my sticky notes to myself.
It's all good. Hope I don't run out of momentum.

If you are on babysteps - should you be trying to do the mission as well?

grouchyoscar Mon 08-Sep-08 12:01:28

Laura Just do what you want TBH. If you feel up for it fair enough. If you don't don't worry grin

Welcome by the way

bythepowerofgreyskull Mon 08-Sep-08 12:04:37

Laura - the way I understood starting off with Fly lady was that doing anything in the house was better than doing nothing.. even if you just have 5 minutes it is better to start something.
Hope that helps smile
I have been flying for along time and still fall off the wagon from time to time..

grouchyoscar Mon 08-Sep-08 12:16:51

I've always approached FLY as what I have done rather than what I should do. I always feel I have acheived something rather than done nothing

laurasmiles Mon 08-Sep-08 12:24:25

Thanks - I can see how doing one thing leads to another. It's just so nice to be told to start off slowly - it really takes the pressure of and then suddenly you find energy to do it! Nice to hear so many of you have been doing it for a long time. Do you feel you've made some serious changes? I would love to not feel the CHAOS factor. That might make it easier to met people as I'd have somewhere to invite them back to - certainly not right now though!! blush

grouchyoscar Mon 08-Sep-08 12:27:03

Yep Laura I've been here for 18mths or so and I do a lot more than I used to with very little additional effort. I work smarter rather than harder now

scattyspice Mon 08-Sep-08 12:36:20
