The freezer I kept under the stairs has just died, no problem with that as it was years old and didn't owe us anything. So in order to chuck the thing out I had to shift a lot of rubbish which had gathered around it, you know the sort of stuff, old shoes, carrier bags, etc. I filled four bin bags with junk and threw it all away. The freezer itself wasn't outside more than an hour before it was snatched by some passing pikeys, much faster service than the local council!!! Looking now at the space under the stairs (minus 12 cubic feet of freezer and four bags of crap) there doesn't seem to be any more room there than before. How does that work??
