Reasons to be cheerd=ful, 4,5,6.

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy with a Heart


The new meme I joined in last week finds me here again with more reasons to be cheerful. A great way to start any day, Friday in particular so here are mine today.


 

We keep hens and they often cause me to have a smile! One in particular is my shadow, little Eva. This photo was taken yesterday when she followed me down the drive to collect the evening paper from my neighbour Ro. Ro always laughs as she knows when she sees me coming down the drive Eva will be following. The hens reward us with wonderful eggs - sparse at the moment as they don't like the cold weather, but hopefully spring will remind them why we got them in the first place!

 

My faithful companion Freida. We go for walks everyday and when she sees her lead coming off the hook she makes the most hilarious wolf howl you could imagine, so funny from such a quiet dog.

 
Being married to an engineer is a godsend! This is part of his actual precision work and is his main job, however Jon likes to understand how things work - so from fixing the washing machine, hoover, fuse box and plumming, Jon has a thorough understanding and working knowledge! I know I am truly blessed! lol! Mind you, he knows he is too - he's a big fan of my cooking and loves Saturday night in particular when I always cook a special meal. This week it is wood pigeon!

  1. Awww look at Eva! I would love hens but sadly I don't think the cats would! Are they ex-battery? x

  3. I would love to keep hens too, but can't for health reasons, so I really like looking at other people's. I would also like a Highland Cow, a couple of Gloucester Old Spot pigs, several different breed of dogs and some cats again.
    However none of this is going to happen, so I have learnt to be thankful for what I have, and what I have makes me cheerful just about every day. Like you, a husband who can fix things as well as being one who wipes down work surfaces without being asked. Being surrounded in my home by books and home made crafts.
    And finding a biscuit recipe yesterday that had yummy results!

  5. Eva is so sweet - what a faithful chicken :-)
    How funny that Freida howls when she knows she's going out - our dogs howl when the telephone rings and when I go out and leave them behind!

  8. Just up from a 10-hour sleep and smiling here at your reasons to be cheerful. I must keep reminding myself about reasons I should be happy. It's a bit hard right now, but I know it'll get better.

    Thank you for having a look at mine and leaving me a nice comment.
    Yes, I do marketing- it's pretty interesting, always something new going on! That's very kind of you, I will definitely get in contact if there's anything going on! What kind of business does your husband run? (:

  13. I'm married to an engineer who never fixes anything!!! (but he does have other good qualities!!)

  14. I can really relate to this blog entry. I had a hen as a child but I was scared of it. My sister on the other hand loved hers and it followed her everywhere. My father and brothers were all engineers and loved to work out how things worked and could fix anything!
