This weather also has me thinking about spring cleaning...only thinking..not actually doing! But I do get restless and I have blogged before about how I have this obsession with moving furniture around. I can be sitting doing nothing, when all of a sudden I'm jumping up and moving sofas, armchairs, wardrobes, etc.
The biggest problem is that I don't plan it first. I move something large and then find that I've blocked myself into a corner and the only way out is to climb over everything. I've spent two days on and off doing this. Moving stuff back and forth, deciding I don't like it, and changing it again. At one point yesterday I had an armchair firmly wedged in the doorway between the bedrooms and the sitting room. It just would not budge. The only way out was to climb over it...and then to lift the dogs over. Poppy is easy, but Beki weighs a ton!
The dogs have more sense. They shot off into the garden and stayed there for a couple of hours...they know better than to get in my way when I'm moving furniture.
I left the chair for a while and had a chat with my friend on msn. Time was getting on, and Mr A was due home, so I had to tackle the chair. He gets cross with me for doing this, because I always strain my back...I'm really suffering for it this morning. However, surprisingly the chair suddenly became unwedged and ended up where I wanted it to be, and I'm happy with how it all is...for now anyway.
Today I'm going to make a start on sorting out the contents of my wardrobe. I'd actually like to move the bed and the wardrobe, but that will have to wait for another time, until my back can cope with it!
Do you have any similar obsessions? What do you do when you get bored or restless?
