Carelessness came to our rescue

When we returned from an outing we realised we were locked out. The two doors, one leading to the kitchen and the other to the main entrance were both locked. The key that we keep hidden near the window was not to be seen. We panicked. We had guests with us and the world for me turned upside down. I saw a ray of hope. I called one of the handyguys and requested him to use a ladder and go to the terrace. But why? There was a question in unison by all present. Because I said that the door leading to the terrace was open - a careless thing to do but it helped us to get in. Did any of your blunders came to your rescue too?

It is not easy for anyone to get up there anyway. And Preiti is always there to alert even if a pin drops. The guy had to struggle to get up there.

@silvermist And by the way we lock our gate too. You know Preiti who watches us very well. Just a pin drop and she is alert. So no problem. Thanks for your concern.

Being locked out is no fun but at least you had a solution

It took us quite a while to find a spot as there was algae all over.
