Under cover

We stopped at our nephews farm on our walk today. They have some sheep in here so had been feeding them as we arrived.
You can see young Harry talking to my Harry about farm bikes.
Young Harry has featured in my 365 posts before...I took his picture holding his pet hen, could be ten years ago now but some of you may remember!
He’s now a fully trained tractor mechanic. He is on call this weekend, he could go anywhere in the country where his firm has sold a machine...could be Aberdeen!

Three good things:
1. I put our front door key in my pocket but when we arrived home no key! I think it must have fallen out of my pocket when I took the phone out to take photos...could be anywhere along those muddy fields! We stood outside dithering wondering what to do for five minutes panicking a bit then Harry went & tried the side door! It was open...the postman had come to that door with a parcel & I hadn’t locked it!! Relief!
2. Chatted to our old neighbours on our way round.
3. Leant about slow cookers on the way home...I’m missing my Aga for purposes of slow cooking you can leave in the oven for hours! A slow cooker might be the solution!
Oh my goodness, what a fright over the key! Glad you could still get in. Love this photo - just so evocative of modern farming life and great to see Young Harry there too!

@casablanca @brennieb

We did get a fright! Not like our old house that has sash windows that could be prized up at a push, this place has proper locks & plastic doors...I eyed up the toilet window which was one of those slanted openings but thought no way can I climb in there! It would have been a locksmith job!
Lesson leant with hidden key!

Pleased you managed to get in.I've had a slow cooker for years,a boon especially in winter when we tend to make more casseroles
November 21st, 2020  
@carolmw I’ve looked at them online but haven’t made my mind up which one...one for two people or a bigger one!
November 21st, 2020  
@happypat .I have a smallish one, and one larger.

Nice

Good protection from the rainy weather.

Slow cookers are the norm over here mum. I wouldn’t be without mine x x x

This is a huge shed! He must be a big farmer. You can put a casserole in the oven with low temps - same as a slow cooker!

I'm looking at those remoska cookers at Lakeland .offer on too. Jean has one and loves it..more like mini oven though rather than slow cooker
November 21st, 2020  
@brennieb I love Lakeland...like nothing better than having a potter around there Breni! I’m missing being able to put a meal in the oven for a long time....the electric one seems very hot & I would feel bad leaving it on all the time! Will check that cooker out though!
November 21st, 2020  
@maggiemae Yes I dare say you can but not used to an electric one...this one seems to cook very fast....might be me...I will get used to it I dare say.
November 21st, 2020  
@floralchicknz Cathy likes hers too Lesley....might treat myself to a two man one...what make is yours?

Looks good in black and white. Lovely to see the men having a chat.

What a shock you must have had when you lost your key. Glad it all ended well.

I love my slow cooker, wouldn't be without it.

Big barn! I love my slow cooker Pat, could solve your dilemma!
November 21st, 2020  
Bep
That's a huge barn!
Glad you managed to get in.
November 21st, 2020  
My goodness that’s a big barn! One of our neighbors has our house key. We’ve not needed it but it’s a comfort knowing she has it, just in case.

Looks to be an animated conversation

Great in b and w and nice handling of the exposure
November 22nd, 2020  
Wondeful pic!
November 22nd, 2020  
Wow... what a huge space! It really suits B&W!
November 22nd, 2020  
Wonderful shot! I love slow cookers!
November 22nd, 2020  
@beryl Yes it was a blessing Beryl....not a good idea to leave your back door open for a couple oh hours but it saved us! The door situation here is completely different. At the old place we only used the one door & had a spare set hidden.
November 22nd, 2020  
Nice shot
November 22nd, 2020  
All's well that ends well. I hope you found your keys in the end. Great shot in b&w. Looks like young Harry has quite a farm.
November 22nd, 2020  
Glad you weren't locked out Pat. I use my slow cooker in the summer when I turn my AGA off. It works well but it's not quite the same!!
November 22nd, 2020  
Wonderful photo of current day farming! Glad your story ended well!
November 22nd, 2020  
So glad you found your key. I can recommend a key safe.
November 22nd, 2020  
Lovely B&W shot.
Slow cookers are wonderful things!
November 22nd, 2020  
@thistle01 @obsidian I can see I’m going to have to buy a slow cooker!
November 23rd, 2020  
@sangwann @thewatersphotos The farm is mostly crops but they have lots of sheep at the moment.
November 23rd, 2020  
@louannwarren That’s a great idea Lou Ann but don’t know our neighbours that well yet....I would feel happier about a spare somewhere.
