I got up and made a cuppa to take back to bed, but whilst waiting for the kettle to boil I turned the freezer off, put old towels in front of the freezer topped with the oblong washing up bowl.
I returned to bed with the tea and managed to get back to sleep, by the time I awoke and was dressed the freezer was defrosted.
All the frozen food now fits in one freezer though I may spread it out between the 2 to make it easier to find things.
There were a few things we should have gone out and done today but I felt like a lazy day so we stayed home.
Even so my lazy day included getting 4 loads of washing done and mainly dry on the line as well as defrosting the freezer.
I checked the inventory for the narrow boat, it seems it comes with everything that is on board, erm, it looks as though the owner has just popped out for a pint of milk!
The kitchen is full of equipment and the shelves are full of books and other stuff, hey ho, more decluttering to come.
