Daft thought. check your home insurance. the fridge breaking wont be covered but the food will be. they will want to see the quote for the replacement part as proof that the fridge died and melted your stuff and your food receipts and an estimate of value for older contents that is usually it.

Thanks S, another friend had mentioned that, I will check it out.
Only if it doesn't affect the no claims bonus, though.

By the way, it got fixed and it broke down again ::) (see the other thread...)

New compressor is from a damaged batch, repairman told not to use the ones he's got.
So not getting a new one today after all, I have to wait for Wednesday ::)
Meaning I'll have to work from home in the afternoon - at least I've got the option.

10 days without a fridge... *sigh*

10 days? That's ridiculous! How are you supposed to have a cup of tea without milk?

Well, I drink herbal tea, so don't put milk, but I'm using my back garden as a fridge ;D
Been having to open the door into the cold every time I want something...

Milk, butter, cheese and whatever else I had in the fridge last time it worked.
The freezer stuff I cooked in a rush too.

Herbal tea?
That’s not tea.
That’s just weeds soaked in water.  ;D

Cinnamon = spice
Cinnamon <> herb

"Tea" without any actual tea in it is not tea, Bea. It's an infusion.  ;)   Fight me!  8) :P
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Then I much prefer "infusions" to "tea". Kill me ;D

I'm with you. Herbal tea is best tea.

Just because I know you were wondering (not ;)), the lastest, and I hope final news, is that my fridge is finally fixed! :D
It sort of got fixed on Wednesday, but then the light wasn't coming on when the compressor was paused. The guys came this morning and fixed the connections, apparently the normal electric colours are switched in this model and they had done the wronf connections ::)

But yay, I got frozen stuff back 8)
