Morning Starbear

I will be going in after droping miniMad at preschool.

I was up at 3 in the bath as my tummy is off, nerves I think!!!

So I am all done and cleaned, DH even hoovered the stairs for me.

House is clean, home blauring is done

Now just to pack things to take with me until I get done!!!

TeaMonster Mon 02-Nov-09 10:50:46

Oh and I have a Mission for you all

I want to do a weekly childrens craft activity on the blog, but need a button and a catchy name for it. Help...........

To give an example this week would be to do with fireworks coloured crayon covered with black and scratched off by the children with a pencil or paper rockets.

Just something that I do each week for everyone in blogland to have a go at to.

Morning all
Starbear thanks for the thread.

Well even dp noticed that the flat was cleaner and I was happier and calmer when I was following Flylady properly! shock He very carefully hinted that I might want to get back on it again properly so here we go again back to de-cluttering and babysteps! grin I think him and the dc's will even be helping more this time round - the routines are getting blu-tacked to the cupboards and ticked off with washable marker pens to re-inforce what I actualy do each day and they can tick something off when they do it!!

Anyway, I'm afraid I haven't had a chance to catch up on the earlier threads yet, maybe later. Have a massive pile of washing and birthday toys to find homes for now, don't know where!!

Hope everyone had a good half term and are now enjoying the chance to undo the resulting carnage.

Morning TeaMonster and Starbear smile

Thanks for the thread and the xmas organisation Starbear! smile

Mad...I've missed something...are u ok? [very sorry for being a slacker emoticon] sad

At home home days are very few and far between these days! I have a whole house full of washing to catch up on and every pet we own needs some serious cleaning/feeding/general attention!

See u all in a bit x

Ludaloo Mon 02-Nov-09 10:58:47

Oh...xposts...hi ShannaraTiger too (gosh that's a mouthful to write!..well handful actually!...YKWIM!)

I remember years ago when I first started FLYing, it felt like I'd finally got my life sorted...well housework wise does feel really good to be in control..calm and happy and it rubs off on everyone else too.

I need to return to that happy very soon I will be doing babysteps again sink is soooooooo not shiny!

Starbear Mon 02-Nov-09 11:44:23

Break time Tea & Mum's crumble from last sunday I'm hoping that there is enough sugar in it that it's preserved! hmm
Shannara I would suggest training your DP but I haven't trained mine! But he has an excuse he's an old gladiator with old wounds (4 hip ops)
Ludaloo There are times when you need to fall off the wagon as it can get a bit much blush
I don't shine my sink when ever I do I think insnatly make it dirty by cooking. It my thing is 'beds made I feel the house is in order then!

Waving madly

I am home, sore, but home. The doc assisting the consutant was amazed that I was having so much done under a local, but I am so glad I did it that way.

I am in bed, resting and am going to allow people to wait on me for a change.

I have had old fashioned stitches again, so will be going back in 2 weeks time to have them out.

Hi Ludaloo

Nope I don't think I know you either been around here for a few months but been on my hols for the last two weeks.

Starbear - Majorca, first time out of the country cos I'm scared of flying so DH just booked it so I couldn't say no (well I could have but he knows I wouldn't waste money) - It was great, lovely sunny and the most relaxing holiday I have ever had but came back to rain so kinda landed with a bump.

Glad to hear all went well Mad.

Well I'm off to bed cos I'm hoping to get up early and start sorting the house out - it really looks like a bomb has gone off after the madness of our two back to back hols and DD coming back to the excitment of having toys again.
