Then I decided to join in the spendfest and bought an ice maker. Our fridge doesn't offer ice-making options and previously I've found separate ones too large and costly, even though the Oz in me wants ice in everything. So I bought this...and it works very well. I had to buy an insulated ice-bucket to keep all the ice in! And it had to be put in the shed. More about the problems of space later.
So far the fan is a life saver of quiet cool, the ice maker has enhanced the drinks tenfold and the lectric frypan has cooked up some great food quickly, easily and without heating up the kitchen. They are still winning their place on the benchtop.
We spent some time with friends watching the jazz bands in the Durham Band Fest.
We are enjoying the cooler break. Great reading all your news even though I haven't blogged for a week or two, it's been good keeping up.
Cheers for now,
