I've always enjoyed moving furniture around. Those of you who have followed me for some time will already know that I get bored and restless and suddenly jump up and start moving. It can be any time of day or night...yes I have been known to start shifting wardrobes and armchairs at 3am. When the mood takes me I just go with it.
The problem that I face once I've started is that I get myself trapped in corners with heavy furniture all around me..simply because I don't plan it before I begin. It can be exhausting...particularly so in the height of summer when the temperatures are well over 40 degrees. I literally sweat buckets...it's a good way to lose weight!
I recently bought a lovely big comfortable dog bed for Beki from our new vet in Milas. The poor girl suffers with arthritis in her back legs and I've always allowed her to sleep on our bed for comfort and warmth. Sadly she can no longer jump up onto the bed, so the dog bed, covered in a soft blanket, is perfect for her . It's in our bedroom which is fine, except that Poppy insists on sharing it with Beki. This has resulted in the two of them fidgeting and arguing and pacing up and down all night...which isn't good for any of us.
Our sitting room furniture, which we have had for a long time, consists of a 3-seater sofa, a 2 seater sofa and 2 armchairs. Far too much for our small sitting room, so we have had to shuffle it about and move either an armchair or small sofa elsewhere in the house. This year we moved the 2 seater out onto the balcony which is great for lounging on and gazing at the view, but apart from taking up too much space, the sun and rain are going to ruin it if it stays there any longer.
Two days ago I resisted an urge to move furniture myself and instead supervised Mr A in moving the sofa into our bedroom. With a bit of shuffling around, everything fits and Poppy has settled herself on the sofa. Beki is delighted to finally have her bed to herself. Now, finally, we are all getting a better night's sleep.
The things we do for our dogs!
