Extra:  Oops by casablanca

Extra: Oops

I store my mop bucket and mop outside the back door by my wood store, which is normally fine. Except when the temperatures have been really low and we have had a lot of snow. So this is my mop bucket, frozen solid inside and out and it made me laugh! Just for fun.....
Good excuse for no mopping today!!!

I know the feeling, the problem is the buket might crack due to the expanding ice. If it is still freezing over there you could make an ice lantern by filling a bucket with water and let it freeze. The tricky is to not let it freeze solid but just at the edges, then you smash a hole in the ice at the top, pour out the remaining water and then take out the ice. Put a tealight inside and you have an outdoor lantern.

@ingajohansson What a fabulous idea! It is melting well now it is in my kitchen, but I will put it out again when I have finished and see if it freezes enough to try that!

There is a great line there. 'Sorry can't mop the floors today the mop bucket is frozen'. I don't think I could get away with that as an excuse.
