People might say that I am an impetuous person, I do things on the spur of the moment. Though that may be true and I must confess to acting that way many times, I do usually give plenty of thought before taking any action. In a recent post I was writing about our problems with fridge/freezers and the fact that one unit not much older than five years had become faulty for the second time thus rendering it not cost-effective for a third repair. I had in fact carried out the last repair which kept it in service for over a year. It would be better to cut losses and simply buy a replacement. However I had decided not to make an immediate purchase and also not to purchase a similar unit but instead purchase a larder fridge. The logic behind that decision I explained in the other post. The main reason was to separate fridge from freezer, to have independent units rather than combined. We don’t really need extra freezers as we have some in the cellar rooms. We do however need the extra fridge capacity so that is why I intended to purchase a stand-alone tall fridge as a replacement. When and if the other fridge/freezer we have in the kitchen requires replacing we would purchase a stand-alone freezer to replace it. So instead of having two combined fridge/freezer units we would have two individual ones, a fridge and a freezer. I had decided to wait awhile before purchasing the fridge as I said but changed my mind and ordered one a couple of days ago. It had only been a matter of a few days but we were struggling with the lack of fridge space the other fridge/freezer has and couldn’t wait any longer. It is Thursday (30 th) as I write and we expect the delivery within a couple of days. Yesterday I received the new flag and weight and don’t have any excuses not to work on the flag pole and fit them.
If you remember I need to remove the top half of the two-piece pole in order to re-insert the rope and carry out a repair to the finial at the top which doesn’t move freely as it should. It may need replacing too which will delay completing the work. Fortunately we are in for a couple of days of fine weather.
