don't procrastinate- Just FLY!!! its wednesday(47 Posts)
prof i have bagged all ds's toys up and put them in the shed before and made him earn them back, i didn't tell him they was in the shed for a week, i did it on bin day and told him i had put them in the wheelie bin before the bin men arrived i did work tho he only needs nagging gently reminding that his room is getting messy and he cleans it i also have linked pocket money to a clean room, ds loves to save so hates to think he has lost money
tort and go hope you are both feeling a bit brighter today
today i have
sort dry washing
ds taken himself to school
now need to;
dd to gym
take nan shopping
pop to my aunts
would also like to clean behind cooker/fridge etc but i only have 15 mins til i need to leave so don't think that will happen today
have a good day all
i think i might try that take toys away and earn it back with ds!

Ring brother, homestart lady and friend
Epi Sorry about the fit, hope you both manage some rest today.
Dh and I have just been sitting in rain under the garden parasol having a cuppa. (Tube strike today - he is working from home)
Feels like camping at its best LOL.
He kept asking me where all those coloured things I had last year had gone - finally deduced he meant GERANIUMS. Garden is very green and tasteful at the moment ie: flowerless, but lovely. Potatoes are flowering!
Now first thing - get dressed
then ironing and putaway
then more curtains and radio
Go for the painting Galen
Was yesterday's mural out of your head or did you use any tracings?
Epimum it feels like a day for resting doesn't it, very misty and damp.
Dylsmum, what colour will you do your dresser? Sounds a fantastic bargain.
My vindictivness/firmness on toymess front is in proportion to general rattiness. So generally just either hide the toys in shed to begin with or tidy them away in vain hope of setting a good example.
I tend to wait till bedtime for duvets though and just say get it yourself from downstairs if you want it [mean mum emoticon]
hi swanriver where are you to? its sunny here, i think its meant to rain later though,
so got dd fav film going to cuddle up on setee with popcorn
all for her benefit of course
tmh thanks, shame about the tantrum i've got a 5 yr old that still does that, getting less freqeunt now though at long last, have a nice time swimming,
galen thanks to you to, sounds like you got a busy day, good luck
had a rough night with dd so didn't wake up till 8:45 and bloke doing the poorch roof was due at 8:30 so full panic that he'd been and gone!
any way, got all of dds clothes sorted yesterday i cant believe how many there are but at least ive manged to get some together to get rid of.
me and dd dressed
erm thats it!
washing put away
Feeling a bit better this morning. Had a good start to the day without any problems before school!
Went to a friends for a bit after dropping kids off.
Now home and faced with the mess again.
Hi all. Sorry for constant lack of personals, I know I am rubbish at keeping up with this thread! I am still doing well FLYing though.
As I don't have a school run, I am at home all morning, so most of my computer time is at about 7ish while ds1 is having breakfast, they don't make it easy to get on again for long through the day
I do try to read as much as I can from you ladies, so don't think I'm not interested!
Right, can't be bothered to write my to do list on here, it's on paper, but have so much to do today as I said I'd cook dinner for the children at playgroup (they have dinner there every wednesday and we all take turns cooking), so just waiting for ds1 to finish lunch and go for a nap so I can get peeling potatoes, it has to be in oven at 2pm latest.......
LBB - thats a nice idea (cooking lunch for playgroup ).
library after school
I have sorted DD's box of magazines/puzzles/painting etc and chucked most of the magazines in the recycling. I doubt they will even notice! I don't really know why i have so many toys for them, they hardly play with toys. They prefer immaginative play together.
Debating whether i should get rid of their Duplo bricks. Not had them out for ages and ages!
Need to clear the bits of the floor then hoover before lunch.
LBB Lunch at Playgroup sounds a great idea to me
Tort Well done for the de-cluttering
I am a very angry mad house DS2 had another tantrum regarding lunch.
My mother wouldnt believe me regarding this mornings (she collects DS1 from preschool on a wedensday allowing me to take DS2 swimming).
So not much done
I have the washer on - with the swimming bits in
Lunch for DS1
Doing toasties for me and mum, as mine went on the floor
I need to take mum home after she has eaten
I also didnt get the stuff on to e-bay must do that tonight
TMH Sorry to hear DS2 had another tantrum.
Floor now tidy and hoovered. Still have lots of mess round the edges with piles of toys!
got up smile
me and dd dressed
erm thats it!
washing put away
Feeling awake now. DD is just waking up from her nap so going to get to the shops, wll decide when i'm there if i am making tea or buying it
Cheers for the thread Dyls
I will employ the bin liner method to get Ed sorting stuff out, Thanks
OK, I'm giving in, running up the white flag etc etc. I can't keep burning the candle from both ends and I know all I can do is ferry Ed to and from school and no more. I'm not going in the next 2 lunchtimes. I need to rest up. The world can go to hell in a handcart.
Well, except my FLYfriends that is
hi grouchy are you feeling better?
*swanriver it tipping down here now
anyway hope everyone is having a lovely afternoon me and dd have
we've watched beehoven (dd would watch it everyday if she could, she knows the words of by heart}
we've got the face paints out and painted each other's faces in fits of laughter (i look like the incrediable hulk)
right better go and wash face before picking ds up from school
i better go and raid my freezer and think about what to do for tea tonight
have a lovely afternoon flyladies
Tort, you could give Duplo to your school reception class, ours always are grateful for it...(if you can't face ebaying it)
Good sorting vibes, here I've tackled that dreaded junk room.
Just been to school garden open day - so sweet to see them all weeding and digging (not all pupils at once lol, just selected few I think) My potatoes are taller I think!
Off to pickup now.
tort i feel the same about the mounds of toys in here, they play with a selected few but prefer arty things.
swan i think i am gonna try and sand the dresser down and restore to natural pine colour. love the sound of the school garden, hope it isnt like the garden project when i was at school- one minute wonder
tmh sorry your having a bad day with ds today
GO hope a few more peaceful days helps you to rest and feel better
Hello all. I haven't read the thread yet. I'm just back from work so I'm bookmarking it for later.
Swan Would love to be able to that but really need to get some money for it. We have a massive tub of it plus an aeroplane.
Dyls Yes mine prefer arty stuff too. Maybe i should get ruthless and sell loads. Wouldn't make much difference to the space they have in their room though!
Tea is cooking. Mince and potatoes (chips for me and DS2 cos not enough spuds and no money until tomorrow!)
Kids are outside. The sun is finally shining after quite a showery day.
Good for you Grouchy - a live SAHM is better than a dead dinnerlionlady
All is calm here, for now. can't hear anything...just yet...
Now just have to give everyone dinner and then hem the Brownie trousers.
Done dd's homework.
And I've practised piano for 10mins
Tortoise, definitely de-clutter it. I think lego is the next stage.
Dd has always preferred making things out of loorolls than duplo
We do have some lego. DS1 has all my old lego from when i was young! Might invest in more for them.
