Find a penny, pick it up and all day long you’ll have good luck. Are you superstitious? I certainly am.
We seem to have a ‘penny good luck’ benefactor. On our short walk to pre-school, we have to pass a mini supermarket and I think someone must get fed up with getting a penny change. On more than three occasions over the last few weeks, my son and I have found a penny on our way to school. Each time we’ve picked the poor, lonely penny up, rubbed it and put it in my pocket for good luck. I then transfer it to his monkey box when I get back home.
Each time it has happened something nice has happened to us. Yes, I hear you shouting at the screen – pure coincidence! Well, I prefer to think of it as good luck 🙂
Today, a little penny was waiting for us again on our way to pre-school. When I got home I found out I’d won one of the spot prizes from the #playfest Twitter part on Tuesday night with Haba, then my son came home and was in a wonderfully creative mood all afternoon – a double helping of good luck! To top it off I had some good news from a company I’ve been wanting to review, for a while. So thank you penny, for another day of good luck.
Before you ask, yes I do walk around ladders and say goodbye to every single magpie I drive past.
