Feel Good Friday – The Flylady BBR

Last night I faithfully did my BBR. I used to only do it Monday to Friday, thinking I could take the weekends ‘off’. Ha, big mistake! Lesson learned! ๐Ÿ˜‰

BBR – to the uninitiated – is Flylady‘s Before Bed Routine. A little checklist which sets you up for a good ‘tomorrow’. Here’s mine:

  • check the diary to see what’s going on tomorrow

  • make sure kids have schoolbags/sports bags/library books etc ready

  • lay out clothes/accessories

  • set the table for breakfast

  • get to bed at a decent hour ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I checked my diary last night, I realised I needed to set my alarm clock (actually my iPhone) 15 minutes earlier than usual.

First on the agenda this morning was an art exhibition in DD8’s class. From the (somewhat ungodly) hour of 7.30am to 8am! DD’s class have been studying the French impressionist painter, Claude Monet, in their Art and Danish classes. This morning the parents were invited to see what they’ve been up to, enjoy a cup of coffee and look at the masterpieces. This is DD8’s painting of the bridge at Giverny. Isn’t it good? ๐Ÿ™‚

Quickly back home to unload the dishwasher and collect DS10 who had an appointment at 8.30am with the school orthodontist (who lives in the same swanky building as the school dentist). DS10 isn’t getting a brace until next year, so today was just a quick check-up. Here’s DD8 in the orthodontist chair (there are 8 state-of-the-art dentist chairs lined up in a row, divided by screens…children on a conveyer belt!) because – yep, she’s getting a brace too… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Moving swiftly on…and back home again. Just time to change into my pink running jacket and shoes and meet my sweetie friend V at 9am for our NEWO interval run in the park. A short 3k run today. We finished just as the rain started dripping down from a heavy, summer sky. Which is a bit annoying as it’s nearly the month of June and I’ve only had my sandals on twice. TWICE!! But at least with all this rain the park looks fantastic and everything is blooming lovely…

Anyway, it’s just gone 10 am, so I’d better get cracking and finish the Flylady MR. Morning Routine. But that, as they say, is another story… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you have a fabulous Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Ah, you've found my summer Achilles heel! Its so easy for me to fall into a "I'm not doing anything important tomorrow so I don't need to get ready" trap. Being a full-time Lady of Leisure is soooooo difficult….. Anyway, you can bring your sandals & hang out by our pool if you'd like LOL

  2. Your DD's painting is beautiful!

    I've been slacking on my MR, but I rock my BBR! It's far easier since I'm a night owl.

    And this weather…yesterday I woke up to snowflakes floating around…today was sunshine but the temp was 1C. I want sandal weather too!

  3. Jen, I think we need to head over to Candace's place…she's not only got a paddling pool but a bottle of gin and a cabana boy too, apparently! ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. Diane thank you for sharing and linking up! It doesn't matter how complex or how simple we make our BBR, the important thing is that we get it done! I'm getting better, one baby step at a time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. So, did she get braces? I hope that went well for her. Itโ€™s a good thing that sheโ€™s getting the corrective dental treatment she needed while sheโ€™s young. How long does she have to wear it? I know the average is two years, so I assumed the braces are completely off now, or she's in retainers.
