Over optimistic

I packed the quick-freeze compartment of the freezer with the bottles of raw milk which were delivered yesterday.  I was quite pleased that I managed to fit 10x1 litre bottles in.

I'd forgotten that liquid expands when frozen.

The poly bottles were designed to have a little room for the expansion.  My freezer packing was not.  When I tried to get a bottle out today, I couldn't. They were wedged tight.

I had to resort to oven gloves (we have the sort which fit on your hands like normal gloves), and the handle of a wooden spoon.

Eventually I managed to prise one out.  And then it was relatively easy to get the rest out.
