Having lived without a fridge for the last 3 weeks since the 15-year-old Zannusi gave up, this should be arriving on Monday. I've hardy dared commit to anything extra on weekdays in anticipation of it's imminent arrival...
For the last 18 months, we only had the old fridge. The freezer, which used to be in the garage, had to go before we started bricking up the garage doorway for the workroom conversion in August 2008. There was no way we could get it out afterwards, as it wouldn't fit through the slightly misaligned doors in and out of the hall. I didn't want to share my new workspace with a freezer forever!
The kitchen is too small for a full width fridge & freezer size by side and I am too short to get into the top of a large conventional fridge freezer without a stepladder, so a side by side was the best option to make good use of the space. I'm having to move some stuff out of my dining room sewing corner to bring it through. That's where I used to handsew before the new workroom was fitted out and there's a shelving unit with various bits and pieces (mostly boxes of threads) that needs to move out.
The thing I am most looking forward to is buying some frozen peas!
