Escape from Alcatraz oops I mean Chicken Shed

Forgot to post about this. The other week Jonny and I were out in the garden cleaning out my chickens. I have my own chicken shed next door to Peckingham Palace to store the food and straw in - anyway when Brian and I put the shed up I forgot to buy a latch for the door so I put on one that happened to be in the garage (you can only open from the outside) I guess you know where this is going - anyway I am shut in side by a freak gust of wind - I call Jonny over and we have a whole conversation about could he go inside and upstairs to Zollie and tell him to come and help Mummy. Jonny trots off good as gold and comes back about 5 minutes later to say "Zolie says no" At that point Jonny says goodbye and walks off. I call him back eventually and tell him to go inside again and up to Zolies room (its his time off) and tell him to come out. Another 5 minutes pass and Jonny is back in the garden happily playing - I can see thru the crack in the door. Eventually Jonny goes back up and pesters Zolie who thinks Jonny is just being a pain - I think he came down to see where I had gone and thought it was hysterical that I was stuck in the shed and he had told Jonny "no to leave him alone". I did feel a bit of an idiot screaming and shouting to be let out of a tiny shed - note to self must go and buy a proper latch.
