|Just around teatime I discovered that the door on one of my freezers hadn't closed properly. |
All the stuff near the door had started to soften, while a huge ice wedge had begun building up at the door edge preventing me from shutting it properly without defrosting first.
But my other freezer was well over half-full, so I didn't have enough space to move all the contents over. I managed to get all the meat, bread and fish into the other freezer, the milk and sweets into the 'fridge, and several half-used bags of vegetables into the slow cooker. But I had two "bricks" of home made mushroom casserole left over, along with half a bag of sausages...
So, it was sausages for tea, and two frozen bricks down the toilet. It took nearly five hours for them to defrost enough to flush away.
I watched a couple of George Sanders "Saint" movies on BBC2, a "Charlie Chan" movie, "The Newsroom", "Breaking Bad", "Continuum" and I'm about to watch "True Blood" and "Absolutely Fabulous".
The freezer is almost completely defrosted, and should be done and dry by morning. As long as everything else is safely stored in the other 'fridge/freezer, I'll leave it switched off until my next load of shopping is due to save electricity.
