Please, read the following quote:
I finally finished tidying about 3 a.m. (after I moved the furniture) and a few minutes later I was fast asleep. I woke up suddenly at 8 a.m. I had arranged to meet my parents at the airport at 8.30 a.m. but I hadn't set the alarm!
If moving the furniture which was already narrated in the story was one of the causes of the current distressing state, can I still refer to it using the past perfect tense? i.e something like "I hadn't set the alarm and had moved the furniture"? or it is a choice because it's already mentioned in the story in clear order?
This was a comment on my previous post "Reference Time, Coordinating Conjunctions and Past Simple/Perfect Tense" which was answered gratefully by @StoneyB, but it is a different question.
