I am FLYing!!!

No not literally but it is my effort to become more domesticated! There is a website for the Flylady but I am not following that to the letter just taking elements of it and certainly tackling the house room/zone by zone! This week I have done both the bathroom and the ensuite and have to say I am very ashamed of us all to think that they could have got this way.

Every night before I head off to head I make certain the sink is clear, clean and shiny ready for the next day. In the morning when I get out of my bed I make it! Sounds easy when you put it like that but the best thing of all is that it seems to be infectious and DD and DH are now joining in too which is really great!

I am however going to have to step out of this wonderful system this weekend and have a mad dash around the house as we have guests next weekend so want to make certain that things are not too bad for when they visit! Still on to the next area......

As as for the crafting - well been busy there too with lots of cards again so will be posting these next week once the birthday girls have all had theirs. Will also have some Easter cards by then using my new Candyfloss and Marshmallow bunny stamps. Hope to see you back next week :)

I first discovered FlyLady 5 years ago and it worked wonders. That's not to say that I've had it tidy ever since then, at times quite the contrary, to be honest. I was doing great and then I let the slightest things stop me.

However, I'm now coming back to it and just love my clean sink (I only get the tap shiny, the sink itself is a rough brown surface that's quite scratched beyond rescue (we're renting, otherwise I would have replaced it)...). My sister's currently making a variation of the diary :)

Happy Babysteps and Flying!
