Long, long ago, when I was much, much younger, I would, on a whim, move furniture, clean a room from top to bottom, rearrange the furniture, pictures etc. I know that many of you used to, or now do the same thing. I found it very therapeutic to feather my nest in a different way.
That's what we, two peas and the carrot, Shelley, me and Sweet Man have been doing for two days now. I used to do it myself in one but back then I didn't just get in the way like I do now. I'm only good for fetch and tote....to be truthful fetch has got my hip and tote took my knees.
The living room just wasn't working the old configuration and besides it's about time that Sweet Man doesn't have to look to one side or the other to see the TV but straight on. I won't let him have the only chair because I can get in and out of it without too much difficulty. The couch is another song and dance.
So here's my observation: if you are over 60, leave your furniture where it is, (or pay someone to help) it isn't worth maiming yourself over. If you are under 40 move it while you still can and enjoy the view. If you are in between, surely to goodness you have more interesting and entertaining things to do than move your million pound TV and lardy leather furniture just so the love of your life can not have a neck ache. I fear the aches that he will have tomorrow will be a whole lot more painful. But in the long run.....well let's just hope he appreciates this as much as I appreciate having a new look to the living room.
Words to moan by.
