Above you can see the door of our under-the-stairs cupboard thingy.
The door frame is precisely 50.6cms wide.
Below you can see our brand new chest freezer, delivered yesterday evening.
As it turns out, the width of this hugely exciting purchase at its narrowest point is 52.6cms, meaning it won't fit in. Trust me, I tried.
On the face of it, this looks like something of a domestic disaster. But not quite.
As luck would have it, Arctic weather is due to arrive over our house on Thursday so we'll not then need a freezer any more.
Swings and roundabouts.
