Reasons to be cheerful- Part Three

Good Morning. Today is just a quick post- linking in with Planet Penny and her Reasons To Be Cheerful, which I think is a fine start to the day.
Without further ado, the things I have to be grateful for today are:

I found these bad boys in a charity shop, and just looking at them makes me smile

I read about ways to propagate rosemary and mint by just cutting them, dipping in honey,  and popping them in water- who knew???? Also along the way discovering a use for all those favourite but broken or chipped cups!! And saving me lots of money, because I do love me a big herb garden, with lots of sweet smelling things.

And lastly, and most importantly, my lovely son turns 18 today. He is my first-born, and I love him dearly, and cannot wait for him to wake up now!
I hope you all have reasons to be cheerful, don't forget to either join in, or just check out other peoples reasons to be cheerful.

P.S. There is no Part 3, I just like the song!


  1. Happy Birthday to your lovely son! Doesn't the time fly! They will always be our babies ;) x

  2. Ah bless him. 18!!!!! My daughter is 8 next week and I can't believe how fast the years go. Enjoy him, go wake him up. He won't thank you for it though!!!!!!

  3. Happy Birthday, big boy!! How are you doing with that, mama? I bet it's bittersweet. Hugs! I am sure he's a wonderful boy! I'll bet you've raised him wonderfully!

    There are many many things to be grateful for!

  4. A birthday! Now that is a reason to be cheerful! Thanks so much for joining in and spreading a little happiness. (And if you like the song, did you see I put it on my initial Reasons to be Cheerful post?)

  5. Who knew indeed? I am going to try that.......I love your little miss cup!

    Happy birthday to your big boy, hope you have a truly wonderful day and an even cheerier week!

  6. Wow that's a great tip about propagating herbs, thanks for sharing. Love all your little ceramic figurines, I am always on the look out for a bambi or fawn, my absolute favourite xox

    Thanks for all your love comments on my blog, much appreciated xox Hope you have plenty of reasons to be cheerful in the coming week.

  7. I love those ceramic figurines!!uber cute!!A very happy birthday to your son!!

  8. Thanks for the wonderful herb tip! I have a treasured, gnarled rosemary plant about 14 years old that I grew from seed - and would love to propagate it.

    Love the "bad boys". A very happy birthday to your son.

  9. Happy Birthday to your son, but time flies so fast. Don't you wish you could shrink them back to the age of 5 just for a day?

    Hugs to you,

  10. Oh, I just love your 'bad boys' from the charity shop! I have a similar collection and must post about them one day- I keep telling the mister that they're for our daughter's room, but she's too small to have them yet, so they're keeping warm on the mantlepiece! (he's buying it anyway) !!
