Sharing our Reasons to be Cheerful…

…just one more time!

Which doesn’t, of course, mean we can’t keep looking for them!

Here on Planet Penny, I’m still finding little flashes of springtime promise, (even though as I type the wind is howling and rain is lashing against the window!)


Higgins is not quite so cheerful because although the ‘boss’ came home from work last week, he’s had to go away again on a course…so Higgy hasn’t got his early morning vantage point.  The routine is that Tim sits in the reclining chair to drink his morning tea, and Higgins gets as far down the chair as possible, so he can lie on ‘ a person’, always the best place as far as he is concerned, on red alert, looking down the garden ready to leap, like a coiled spring when the post lady and the paperboy arrive.  This is how he does it…

After my last post it’s been very cheering to have lots of enthusiasm and lovely comments (thank you!) for the Planet Penny Cotton Club project, and I’m still trying out different ideas…

…and I’ve been happy to pack up the cotton packs in the pretty pink mailing sacks!

(If you’d like to join in do get in touch, there are still some packs left, and if I sell out there will be a waiting list!)

This is the last Reasons to be Cheerful post and Linky for now,  I hope you’ve enjoyed it, either joining in or just following the links to meet other bloggers.  I know I’m really happy to have gained some new bloggy friends!

Please join in for this last Linky below, or leave a comment so we can go out on a high, I do love to hear from you…thank you for taking part x

About penny

I live in Norfolk, England in a cottage on the edge of the Norfolk Broads where it can be peaceful and beautiful, or wet and muddy, or occasionally wild and windswept. With me is husband Tim, Henry the elderly and opinionated tabby cat, and Higgins, the miniature dachshund with a massive personality. You’ll find me chattering on about wool and textiles, knitting and crochet, recipes, books and patterns, exhibitions and shopping and of course, the adventures of a small dog! Planet Penny has a Facebook Page, you can find me on UK Handmade and I am featured on Channel4/4Homes Favourite Craft Blog List.

    Well I wasn’t feeling too good this morning, the weather wasn’t helping but then the postie arrived…….. and in his bag was a wonderful “Rainbow”. Perfectly packed in its lovely pink bag out popped the most wonderful, squishy, stunningly colourful yarn.
    I’m very happy with my rainbow and I’m looking forward to working with it and seeing other crocheters creations.
    Thank you Penny.

    Beautiful, beautiful flowers – especially the irises. Love Higgie’s morning vantage point, and the cheerful cotton yarn.

    Thanks so much for hosting all this Cheerfulness – it’s been great fun.

    I love your dog Higgins, he’s so cute… I enjoy your blog a lot by the way. I’m in Mexico so I think mailing from the UK would be quite expensive, if not, I would definitely join the cotton club! Well, thanx for sharing reason to be cheerful:)….. Have a nice day!

    Your garden definitely looks more springy than ours…..despite it being very mild, I haven’t seen a lot flowering yet….the flowers are so pretty.

    Love the sound of your cotton club, i do like working in cotton, I like the stitch definition and the colours you’ve chosen are very cheery!

    Thank you for bringing so much cheeriness!

    Penny, I’m sure it was my mistake – it probably said 6 minutes left, not 6 hours! Anyway, thanks again for this wonderful party.
