Drawers on the floor are no fun and the size can really limit what you can store. I tried for ages to rearrange things to get a chest freezer in but ended up with a cheep under worktop one.

At least you have until July before the tomatoes start coming thick and fast.
I'm the person the monsters under your bed are hiding from.

I had a chest freezer for years and years but as I am also a short bum too I got fed up when defrosting.

I changed to up rights with drawers and they are much better to defrost. Many of the new freezers have big drawers and I have no found them limiting for storage.

I find open freezing and storing in bags give more wriggle room in between the larger items. I am probably teaching sucking eggs here. :wub:

At least  :lol:



I'm old enough to remember my mum's stewpot which just had more 'stuff' added everyday and then reboiled - don't seem to remember it getting all used up and the pot washed. I'm sure it must have been though  :wacko:

The new under-counter freezer, arrived at lunchtime
I've heard that ao.com are very good for prices and rapid delivery, for the replacement freezer.

I can confirm that ao were a good price, delivered next day, and within the 2hr time slot they promised.

I also thought that 9.99 was a fair price to take the old one way for recycling;)

Cor do you have to pay to have yours recycled.

The local place we have used for years, do that for free and always deliver to the kitchen even if it is up many stairs.

You have to pay 23 if the council collect and recycle  :ohmy: so I thought a tenner pretty reasonable  ;)

Ooo eerr.  :ohmy:Compared to 23 a tenner is reasonable.

Our council will collect any large rubbish free of charge here, for which I am very glad, seeing how much you would have to pay.

Glad you're sorted, mum  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
