Electrical appliances have lousy timing



Today our freezer decided to give up the ghost. Ordinarily this would not have been terribly much to worry about. But aside from having the usual frozen items, like erm 4 different varieties of ice cream, I had managed to build up a stash of about a months worth of frozen meals and was planning on doing more this weekend.

And cooking is not my area of expertise, so getting all those meals together took a considerable summonsing of effort in the kitchen on my part.

And while The Bloke is generally a bit of a genius at resurrecting non compliant appliances (he has managed to bring our washing machine back from the brink on more than one occasion), apparently the freezer has a problem That Cannot Be Fixed.

So tomorrow we head off on a trip to our closest Big Town to haggle with the electrical appliances salesman to spend money that we don’t have.

Oh well. It could have been worse. It could have been the hot water system. And being on the cusp of winter that would have been a Very Bad Thing Indeed!

Poor you! I really sympathise with having lost all the cooked meals you squirrelled away! I hope you get a good deal on a new freezer.

Ack! You definitely have my sympathy.

That is truly bad timing. Although I guess breaking down mid summer may be mildly worse, but not much. Hope the new one arrives soon!
