A word of warning!
I hope that you all had a good Christmas and holiday. Happy New Year to those of you I have not already spoken to you!
I feel it necessary to explain the following however revolting, as a word of warning to prevent anyone experiencing the same as I did! Before Christmas, Mum kindly offered to buy food for me for this term and put it in my freezer so that it was here when I moved back in. What a lovely gesture, saved me having to buy it and had the added bonus of Mum buying better the Tesco Value items.
What therefore is my word of warning? Always check whether the power is going to be turned off to your 'fridge and freezer if you are going away for over a fortnight. You will be in for a nasty surprise if the powers goes off, I can assure you!
Never before have I seen or smelt anything as disgusting as I did when I opened my freezer after 2.5 weeks without power. I won't go into any detail as it was utterly revolting, but suffice it to say, i hope I never have to see or smell anything as bad, ever again.
See you all soon.
