Locked out on Good Friday

I locked myself out today. The front door was not even double locked, but none of the neighbours were able to unlock this very simple lock,

Someone said, a simple lock, like this one, one should be able to unlock with a hairpin! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is how they show it in the movies! ๐Ÿ™‚

After a few phone calls, Joan, my neighbour, found a locksmith who was willing to come. It was not so easy to find someone, since it is Good Friday today, a public holiday!

Soon, Joan gave me a bit of wine to drink. This helped me, to relax a bit! ๐Ÿ™‚

When the kind locksmith arrived, I felt happy and also a bit tipsy. I joked to him, the locksmith, about using a hairpin, whereupon he mentioned something about James Bond. In any case, it was quite easy for him to open the door for me. I paid him what he had asked for and told him how grateful I was that he had come to my rescue.

I had had a good lunch at the nearby Bowing Club today. But I did end up with a broken off tooth. The part that is still left from that offending tooth soon caused me a splitting headache.

In the meantime, I was able to have a little nap, and I also relaxed a bit watching some enjoyable TV programs. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also took a few pain killing tablets. So, I feel not too bad now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Wow! What a day! I always keep a key hidden. I’ve had to try to crawl through windows at other homes. I can’t open the windows from the outside in my current home, so I’m quite paranoid about locking myself out.

    1. Linda, actually I moved into this place here in Dapto on my 60th birthday in 1994!

      Peter was only 59, but already retired. And daughter Caroline was not quite 16 yet!

      After having lived in our new home only for a few days, we already had our first break-in!
      We had more break-ins over the years, always done by kids, who found it easy to smash
      a small window and climb through it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Peter and I also had to resort a few times to getting into the house by using a bathroom window,
      when we had locked ourselves out. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think, Peter would lift me up, and then somehow,( I was probably still
      in my sixties) I managed somehow to climb through a very small window – Ha, ha!

  2. Oh dear, instead of Good Friday it sounds like it is good grief Friday. To commiserate I think I will get some wine. Hope tomorrow is a spectacular day!

    1. Oh yes, having some wine, I too would very much like, only it might interfere a bit with my pain killers.
      So. please keep drinking some wine for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Today, is indeed a much better day, since I had some very good sleep and feel rather well rested! ๐Ÿ™‚

      And tomorrow, Easter Sunday, I’ll have the pleasure of one of my daughters and son-in-law going
      out with me for lunch, and afterwards maybe spending a couple of hours with me in my home for a relaxing
      coffee afternoon, ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh, gosh! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ What excitement!
    So sorry about the getting locked out AND the tooth AND the headache! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    But the wine, TV shows, and nap sound good! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope tomorrow is great in every way! Much much better than today!

  4. Carolyn, before the dear locksmith arrived, I had only time for a few sips of Joan’s chilled white wine diluted with some water. – But it seemed straight away to effect me a bit by immensely relaxing me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So, all good. I did get in touch with both daughters: Monika was on a camping holiday in Canberra, and Caroline with husband Matthew was at home in their Wolli Creek apartment in Sydney. The daughters responded both in a
    very comforting way that felt so good! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Later in the evening I felt very relaxed for Caroline did write to me a very long, compassionate Email, and this really made my evening when I listened to beautiful music and also was able to watch some very enjoyable TV programs before crashing out and retiring into dreamland! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am sure, Carolyn, I am going to be alright now for the rest of the EASTER holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My best wishes for you, dear Carolyn, and also for all my other followers, for a very
    HAPPY EASTER!

    Love and Hugs from Uta
