Just went to put something in the freezer (I'm making icecream at midnight - well, something to do, innit...)
Realised that freezer door was ajar, (not gaping open or I would have noticed it) - it obviously didn't "catch" when I went to close it earlier. I reckon I last opened the freezer door at about 7.15pm - making it just over 5 hours that the door has been ajar like that.
There was a little bit of bit of water leakage at the bottom of the freezer that leaked on the floor. Some of the ice in the freezer is still there, some of it is melted.
The food inside the freezer seems to still be pretty cold, icy and solid, though some of the bags are a little soggy on the outside.
If the food still seems quite frozen, does that mean it is OK? Don't want to poison my family, but also don't want to chuck out loads of perfectly good food when I'm skint!!
(off topic...but on the lines of not chucking out good food when you are skint....yesterday i knocked over a nearly full bottle of fabric conditioner....picture this....11.30pm...DH moving kettle etc out of the way...whilst i used a spatula to 'scrape' it all into a jug...which i then poured back into the bottle.... Wel...waste not want not!!!!)
