Is June the new January? - the Fledgling Flyers are doing their flaming best

(977 Posts)

Welcome old and new fledglings to the June Fledgling FLYers thread! smile

Thank you very much to castlelough for leading us expertly through May - I shall try not to be too haphazard with June, although I make no promises wink

If you're overwhelmed by clutter and general household grub then join us as we (loosely) follow the step-by-step Flylady housekeeping system or languish in the naughty corner hoping to do better tomorrow grin

As usual, we will be following the Flylady three-pronged approach:

1. Baby-steps (a daily step to establish routines)
2. Then baby-steps + 15 mins daily decluttering
3. (And once decluttered) babysteps + daily missions and maybe even detailed cleaning in the weekly zones

For more information have a look here, although to avoid a cluttered inbox, we advise not signing up to the Flylady emails. The basic principle is little and often and don't worry about perfection (no chance of that here!).

Don't worry if you are behind; just jump right back in and it will all come around next month again anyway!

All the links for the babysteps and missions will be posted here every day and we'll all be here to cheer each other on and chat our way through the month.

Trazzles sorry things are so very tough for you. It's so difficult to know what to say as an outsider but I'm sure your dh loves and admires you - I just think that men (infuriatingly) retreat when they can't cope or come up with "solutions to problems" (unlike women who tend to reach out) and that comes across as very uncaring. You are both under huge amounts of strain and I think women and men deal with that very differently. Hugely unfair on you of course when you need his support. flowers xxx

Oh trazzle <hugs>

I echo Toffee's comment. Sometimes with my DH (depression) I get so annoyed that he's ill and therefore can't give me more practical and emoional support. I cannot imagine how shit things have been for you these last few months, the stress and strain must be enormous on both of you, and your relationship.

Hope you managed to gt some rest last night. x
