Breaking and entering

locked out

As a stay-at-home-mom nothing fazes me. No mountain is too high, or too rugged to climb. Nor do I shrink back from some breaking and entering. Because to 'stay at home' you have to bé home first.

Shut myself out

Because today, one of my biggest fears came true: I accidentally shut myself out of the house. And with no spare key to be found, a long afternoon on the cold sidewalk lay ahead of me. Longingly I looked through our kitchen window, and rang our doorbell. But what do you know: there was nobody home. Those modern stay-at-home-moms are always out!

A-team style!

Luckily I paid close attention when I watched MacGyver, and The A-team, and I decided to take a page from their book and get creative! With a little garden shovel I managed to wrench the garden gate open, so I could get into our garden. I knew our bedroom window was wide open, and excitedly I grabbed our ladder and started climbing.


Alas! Either the ladder or I, was way too short. My eye fell on the mini trampoline, but I knew: even with a trampoline I won't be able to jump twelve feet into the air, and then dive into our bedroom. Not without a whole lot of Tena Lady anyway.

Screw the trampoline: I'll use screwdrivers

Then inspiration struck again: we have a lot of screw drivers in our garden shed. I hurried down my ladder and ran into the garden shed where I grabbed a bunch of screw drivers. Then I ran back to the kitchen window and started to unscrew the safety latch of the windows. I felt this pleasant rush of adrenaline. Breaking and entering is a real high!

Part two of my masterplan

With the window sabotaged, it was now time for part two of my masterplan. I pushed my head through the window, and wriggled the rest of me inside too. Triumphantly I set foot on our kitchen floor, and to celebrate I put on the kettle for a nice cup of tea.

But not before I looked up a security company in the yellow pages, because obviously: the security around our house is abysmal! Anybody can get in!

    P.S. - I've recently switched from blogger to WordPress and had some issues when transferring the GFC widget. I'd really appreciate if you could double check to ensure you're following me!

  2. LMAO!! It's been a long time since I locked myself out of the house, but at least I never had to consider a trampoline bounce to get in!!!! Oh, I'm still laughing!

    I would definitely recommend beefing up your security. Who knows how many people have been watching McGyver and the A-Team!

  4. Good job. My toddler once locked me out and laughed at me through the sliding door. Luckily my mom happened to be inside. Don't know if I would have been so creative. Found you on Let's Get Social.

  5. This is hilarious! Well, since you got in and everything turned out just fine. Great sense of humor...

    Visiting from the hop and following. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  6. Well done, good for you. Fortunately, we have an electronic keypad on the front door, so hopefully I will not have to try and do what you did.
    Thanks so much for participating and sharing at SSPS 303. See you again next week!

  7. Yes, I fear of mine as well! At our new to us home, my husband did stash a key. It's well hidden. One I hope I will remember if the occasion ever presents itself.....
    Thank you for sharing at Gma'sPhoto | ge•ner•ic Linkup Party . Looking forward to seeing you next Friday!

  8. I remember a time when I had to crawl through my dining room window, and it was such a hassle! Since then, I made a promise to myself that I would never let that happen again. Haha! Thank you for joining us at The Crazy Little Lovebirds link party #31. 🙂
