Home Alone26 October 2017
Most people faced with a day off, and family away during a school holiday week would, I’d guess, go insane and do all kinds of exciting things.
Today I ran out of Earl Grey tea and burnt last night’s pizza instead of gently reheating it in the oven.
The highlight of my day then has been the successful, if well overdue, defrosting of the freezer. During the mammoth session I discovered that the ice above the top serpentine had built to such a thickness and expanded to such a degree that it’d pulled out one of its supporting bracket screws. The left front one! Danger, mild peril! And the thermocouple is a bit floppy now but seems to work; no signs of an impending ice age yet.
Incidentally, IKEA-Whirlpool didn’t make frost-free fridge-freezers when we put the kitchen in.
