OMG THIS LOOKS AMAZING!!! :!:

I was incredibly sick this year when we had the heatwave, I got heat exhaustion before it got really bad which then evolved into heat stroke a few people were genuinely concerned I almost died at one point. :oops: One of them thinks they saved me by looking after me, I don’t really know it was all a bit hazy and I thought I was trying to sleep through the worst of it, less movement less body heat created etc.

My point was, we talked about getting air con, the quote was around 2k for one room!!! :evil: Plus electrics!!! I was like for 2 weeks of the year and 2 really bad abs i’ll cope or go last minute on holiday to Iceland/Alaska. 8-)

:tinfoil

But this even I could make!!!!! :lol: Thank you for the share.

Means I need to clear a freezer drawer though...probably should do anyway in case the power goes out, less goes to waste/needs eating up quick. Lol

Woah, £2k for one room? Portable aircon units on wheels are around £200, as of spring 2018! Not built in, no, but £1800 difference is appreciable.

I confess, I haven't watched that video - but keeping cool will get more and more important. I got a dizzy spell this year after one of the hot days :(

One issue is freezing enough water on the continent you can pick up ice bricks from most shops for next to nothing..

Put large bottles or tubs of water in your freezer it raises the internal temperature partially thawing stuff
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

Yeah it was a bit ridiculous price. :o

Problem with where I live is the poor insulation, which means its freezing in the winter and warm in the summer, but its affordable for me and my pets so I make do. :D

If you put small bowls of water in the tray and gradually add more then the freezer should cope? Like adding a couple of dishes of extra food? :?:

I have never actually seen anywhere that sells "bricks" of ice. Then again I guess I never buy ice, as I make my own. It always seems to be out of stock the few times of the years I need extra haha a prime example of something else for me to prepare for perhaps? ROFLOL :lol:

I liked how big the bin was though, saves filling it up constantly and I imagine it will be big enough to cope with my 'oom. (approx 4 X 3.5) 8-)
