To slob around on the sofa even though the weather is lovely and I should be sorting the garden?

The weather is nice and sunny here for a change and I have some big plans to spruce up my garden and make it look lovely so I can actually use it in the summer. I know I should be doing this stuff while the weather is good.

However, I have just finished a long shift at work and I'm knackered. I'm lying on my comfortable sofa and eating chocolate.

Aibu to carry on sitting here and watching whatever crap on tv I want before dp gets home and ruins my fun or should I be doing something more productive while the going is good?

No yanbu.

Do what you want to do. Enjoy the quiet. The garden will still be there tomorrow.

Depends. How tired are you? Do you need to switch your body clock back again?

Will you feel more 'rested' if you have achieved something? I often do. Something fun and a bit physical - gardening is perfect for me. I love seeing the things grow.

Well I do want to do the gardening in the sunshine. But I'm tired, been on my feet for 8ish hrs. So I also want to sit down and do nothing!

I have a couple days off coming up so I could do the garden then, but the weather might have turned bad by that time! confused

I love seeing the things grown too biro! I'm quite an impatient gardener though as I like to see results very quickly and nature doesn't always work that way grin

Put your feet up and relax
There's loads of time left to get into the garden before the summer

I WAS going to say YABU until you mentioned 8 hours at work, but now I won't. I'm stuck in hospital and would love to be outside though

Yanbu! Open the windows - that's what I did. Me and my 3 week old daughter then napped together 🙂

Go lie in the garden instead - best of both!

I also slobber round after a token ten minutes in the garden. I then decided I'd clear up a paint spill in the shed (not my doing) and clear out about 15 years of rubbish. I'm going to regret that when its pissing with rain and I can't get in the garden.

I had an unexpected early finish from work and having walked home in the sunshine am slobbed on the sofa right now! Feel like I should be doing something but have no one to do something with and can't be arsed doing anything on my own.

Now there's an idea Spring! But then I can't watch tv sad

Hmm maybe I should just do one small task and then I'll feel like I've accomplished something!

Harder, yes I think it would be easier if I had someone to drag me out of my lethargy grin

Having spent the day sprucing up the garden I can say with certainty YANBU. I am knackered. What was I thinking?!

The weather (here) is supposed to be glorious all weekend so you might be fine. Do it then when you haven't been at work all day!
