Melting the Ice-cap

9:55pm is not a good time of night on a Bank Holiday Monday evening to decide to defrost the freezer which you haven't actually defrosted in…oh I don't know,….. about three and a half years ….since installing it.

Apart from the dangers of uncovering Ice Age man or the remains of a long extinct Woolly Mammoth (or indeed a fish finger - which was a little more realistic). The whole escapade does infact require one to remain conscious and in a constant activity while bailing out melting icecap and replacing bowls of boiling water until the job is finished….which given the depth of ice was about 12:40 am……

….Never again.
