Gremlins?

There are evil gremlins afoot in the house. All the electrical equipment had re-set itself, yesterday - a sign of a power failure. Yet the trip-switches were all ok. This indicates a power-cut at some stage. Fine,* solve problem by re-setting all timers and programs.* - Carry on regardless!

Noooo - go to Big Freezer in the utility room to take out fish for supper. Notice the washing machine has stopped mid-cycle, notice the socket switch is in the off position. Think MWNN must have stopped it mid-cyle by switching it off. Switch it on again. Open freezer that is next to the washing machine. Everything has de-frosted. Must have been the power-cut. oh no it wasn't That socket switch is in the off position too. No power-cut on earth could be that clever. (MWNN absolutely, categorically, denies switching anything orf.)

Result of freezer-disaster - marathon cooking session yesterday;

2 fish dinners (now in fully working, fully frozen freezer)- oooh alliteration - cool. (pun - god I'm getting silly - )
One huge chicken awaiting dismembering and putting into those oh-so-useful foil trays, ready for freezing.
a tray-full of chicken drumsticks oven-baked ready for lunches for the next three days. (bleh - ah well no need to make any decisions I suppose.)
a side of rib of beef awaiting roasting for tonight's dinner.

Had to bin a lot of other stuff because there wasn't time/no room in oven/couldn't be bothered to be creative enough to devise a method of cooking and freezing liver and sausages. (God I hate to waste food.)

Plug must have been out for quite some time to have food defrosting. Glad it did not happen to me. How did you manage to cook so much - you would have needed a restaurant kitchen.
Thats is the biggest nightmare that can happen. Hope it did not happen during the Rugby. Lots of love. N.

Have double oven - it helped.

Discovered it before the Rugby. The fact that MWNN helped with the cooking indicates he felt that he did have something to do with the switches being off.

So sorry but had to laugh especially as your possible suspect helped out in the kitchen - it sounds like a job for Inspector Morse!!! JL

I wasn't laughing I can tell you. He got my best Paddington Bear stare. Morse would be no good to me at the moment, I'm listening to Queen, not Puccini.
