Finally it is that day that I've been dreading. Yesterday we emptied the bookcase of dvds and packed them into boxes and moved the bookcase itself to the centre of the floor. Then we emptied the big display cabinet of all the ornaments-who knew we had so many???-moved it to it's new position where the bookcase had been, dusted it and the ornaments and then put everything back. It took the best part of three hours. I can't believe it took that long!!!
Today we want to get the whole room done and out of the way so here is the agenda. We move the computer desk which thankfully has wheels into the hall out the way which gives us access to the small bookcase with my dad's PS games. That, my lamp and dinosaur models will go into the space left by moving the unit yesterday. Into the space where that was goes my dad's cd and dvd units which of course need to be emptied and moved aside first. It'll look like HMV in here! The big dvd bookcase we moved yesterday then goes where my dad's bookcases were. After that, the computer desk moves to it's new home, the sofa is pulled forward to be nearer the fire and my dad's big chair moved. Then all the cds and dvds are sorted alphabetically and moved into their shelves after I dust everything. Groan!
The place should look much tidier when we're done but I'm dreading today! My dad's back shoulder and arthritis plus my wonky back and knees makes it a full painkiller dose kind of day! I'm trying to think of how nice the end result will be and not the hard work!!! Today I won't be on the computer at all as I'll be too busy so I'll be visiting blogs and catching up with all the comments tomorrow.
If I can get up out of my bed! Are you planning any DIY or further spring cleaning?
