Over 37 degrees celcius... and locked out!...

... lucky for us all when my daughter accidentally managed to lock us out of the house, the 3 kids were with me and there was nothing cooking on the stove!! I was fortunate to catch up with friends just around the corner (as they were driving out the drive!) and use their phone to call my hubs. We have a key outside, but I couldn't find it! He told me where to look, and before we trudged home again, my friend gave me a key to their house in the case that I couldn't get in! God love him!!

Well, I found the key... but the flyscreen door was locked on the front door, and the back door... which left the laundry door. As this door was the culprit for us being locked out.... and not quite locked but not open - I couldn't get the damn key in!!

So back to my friend's house I trudged... fortunately I had the pram for my twins in the garage which can be accessed from the yard!! And it's hot here today, and all this happened around 11am! Hot!

Anyways... I was at their house (they're out for the day), I called hubs again and he sent one of his friends around (oh, my hub was at work)... and using brute force he managed to get the key in the laundry door and using all his weight, pushed it as far shut (it's a sliding door) and turned the key! Yay!!

So my friends are coming for dinner, I've got them some chocolate, and here's the card I whipped up this afternoon.

For the following challenge:

OMG - one of my biggest fears.. I do not look forward to my kids being able to reach the locks! You poor bugger. But funny on reflection? Maybe not. I'm sure your friends will love the beautiful card you made for them. I love the sparkly grey card and Tilda looks lovely. Beautiful shading on her clothing by the way!
