So It Goes

I cut short my earlier visit because there was a local police meeting at 7.30. At least that's what they told me a couple of weeks ago. I arrived just in time to see everyone leave - it had been at 6.30. So my aching body limped me back home for another cyber-session.

This is the tight fit (mmm, memories of the Tuxedo Hill jet scene) I had to get my fridge freezer into.

Not to mention the magnets back in place even before the food...


Having removed the decorative pelmet underneath the top cabinet on Sunday, today I had to release the worktop on the lower cupboard to give an extra millimetre of space. (I am not exaggerating.) I also had to remove a bit of skirting board (for that, read "hack repeatedly and exhaustedly to remove the offending rock, sorry wood, micron by micron"). Two hours later the fridge slipped effortlessly (hm, hm) into place.


The motor has yet to shut off, so knowing my luck it's busted and will have to go back after using enough electricity to run an industrial freezer. Gee, isn't it great to buy an appliance A+ rated for efficiency.

Val it looks BEAUTIFUL, magnets and all. Nothing is as easy as it should be unfortunately. At least you can check that one off your list.

OMG is that a penguin magnet? Too cute :)

That's a nice fridge! And hey, when we bought our fridge and the salesman asked if I had any questions, I said, 'Yes. Will my fridge magnets stick to this?" He stood there in stunned silence before laughing boisterously and sharing my question with everyone in Sears' appliance department...

Magnets over food? Not in my life. Beautiful fridge, though. Cheers Val!!

Finally! She's a beauty, Val!

It's absolutely lovely, my dear! Let us know about that next electric bill! LOL

From experience, it takes a while for the motor to shut off when they're new, so I wish you and your new freezer a long and happy life together!

Frances said...

I want one. :-}

I love the slimness.

Like Bev said, nothing's ever as easy as it should be! But with luck, things have a way of working out, and I hope this works out perfectly for you. It's beautiful!! And I LOVE all the kitty dishes lined up; looks like our house!

Great living space ... looks so comfy and welcoming. I'll be curious how the bottom freezer setup works out for you. I'm inclined to go that route the next time, as the side-by-side is an amazingly inefficient design.

I have a bottom freezer with my fridge and I absolutely love it. Let's face it, you go in the fridge space a lot more than the freezer space, it's just more practical.

I LOVE THE METALLIC FINISH ON APPLIANCES

Thanks, Beverly ... I was curious what it's like to have a setup like that. And you're right, the fridge gets more of the workout. This guy I know wrote a book about statistics, and I think he concluded the average American opens the fridge about 35 times a day.
