Well, I'm up and starting this off for the day, though will not be doing much today as I have a good friend over for most of the day. So just the basics for me today. Happy Flying ladies!

Morning Aufish and everyone

It'll take me a lot longer than 15mins to clear what doesn't belong in my bedroom! The place is in a state after transfering clutter from the office to our room at the need to spend some time in there though so will have go at the mission for once
I'll be back with my list once the kids have been dispatched to school/pre-school

Jelley · 24/04/2007 07:22


Are you looking at yesterdays mission shouldbe?

I am good in the bedroom(did it all yesterday) unless Kelly sends us to clean under the bed

So far today I have mopped the kitchen floor.

Back later with a ist, got to go as I have told dd2 she can play on the comp once she is ready for school.

EHM · 24/04/2007 08:36

jelley do you add yourself to the list on the picnic thread, or do you have to be invited by a long term MNetter?

Jelley · 24/04/2007 08:40

Just copy the most recent list, and add yourself to the bottom.

No invitation necessary.

EHM · 24/04/2007 08:53

Goodmorning ladies
Forgive me if I was a tad vulgar on the thread where a certain someone was haughtly sniffing about fly, I think I've just discovered how protective I am about the fly thread!

Anyhoo, will try and do the basics, still essay's piling up around me. Enjoy flying today, will check in later.

mummy2ashton · 24/04/2007 09:42

morning flyladies!

have so much to do today, lots of general tidying up after ds systamaticly trashed every room he went into last night before bed

hope everyone has a productive day

ludaloo · 24/04/2007 09:52

ooooh Mhamai I missed that thread.... I can imagine though, there are often comments made about this thread....


~DW unloaded and reloaded
~WM on
~Kitchen tidied

Just started on the dusting and desmudging

Mhamai · 24/04/2007 09:57

Well tbh when it was intoned that we flyers didn't have a life to speak of, the old red mist started to descend but fear not a good old sarcastic retort or two set things straight!

ludaloo · 24/04/2007 10:00

Yes...I found the thread and very nearly bit...but I think you did a good enough job on your own

grouchyoscar · 24/04/2007 10:06

A very weary and wobbly wave to all

@ mhami

How very dare she !

Am now trying to dig out my old wraparounds and leather trousers

stacey chuck it over here i'll eat it for you

am already away on 29th july

Well my hangover turned into flu.. i could now cheerfully get a part in "Shaun of the Dead"

Mil did the school run
I'm sitting in 3 day old jeans/dh's painting jumper/sticky up bed hair

Dh cleared up yesterday we were literally knee deep in lego (took him 2 hours to get it back to normalish)

He now appreciates the joy that is the fly lady thread (and a home cooked meal) He's had takeouts for 3 days now and looks like cholesterol is coming out of his ears

Not doing a list as currently am in post beechums max strength caffiene paracetamol frenzy as it gives me 20 mins of feeling ok before i slump back to zombiedom

argh my hands clenching alrady

sofa beckons

good day all !
