When did that happen?
I'm aware that I grandly announced that this week was 'Bird Week' and yet so far I've only had 3 days worth ... but September didn't want to wait for me to finish a a week of bird-themed posts before it ended ... so the Month in Numbers post has taken precedence over birds today.
I can however give a nod to my feathered friends with my first photo, as I'm wearing the owl t-shirt I showed you in August:
11 = The number of new Pro-Marker pens I bought at the Harrogate Papercrafts Extravaganza to boost my collection. But, really, without my enormous levels of self-discipline [cough], it could've been so much worse .....
6 - 4 = The score at the end of a round of:
...The Merry Game of Floundering [Oh, if ever there was a game more aptly named!] which Hannah brought out to play when we went to stay at her house:
Honestly, the finer details of the rules would've been hard enough to understand even without the wine ...And while I'd hate to sound like an ungracious house-guest or anything, when I mentioned that the score was 6-4, what I meant to say was ... I won!!
£2:00 = The price paid for two pieces of splendid stripey fabric in a charity shop in Coldstream:This particular fabric caught my eye:... as it reminded me of the signature fabric of my much coveted fashion brand Jack Wills: Now, if only I could actually find some Jack Wills clothes in a charity shop ....
£0:01 / 1p / a penny! = the price per scrap of woven fabric I came across in a house sale we just happened to stumble across while in Coldstream:When I was debating whether or not to buy any James just gave me a look that sort of said 'They cost a penny ... why are you dithering!'. One of the old ladies who was presiding over the sale told me that they came from a mill which made fabric for 'all the designer clothes' and that people buy up the leftovers to make ' little pictures'. She was a good saleswoman.
I bought 20 pieces.
Because, really, how often can you buy 20 of something for 20p?!
35 = the acres of grounds ...
...belonging to the Jedforest hotel where we stayed for a couple of days on our impromptu trip to Scotland: It was in / above these beautiful grounds that we saw the buzzard I told you about on Monday. It was also a place through which we walked while fantasising that it was actually ours:We also paused to take in [and photograph] it's every little detail:
OK then, I'll leave September there I think. For at least 12 months.
For me, October has begun as it means to go on - I'll be in work today, on a recce trip around all the disabled access doors on campus. [Maybe I'll count them up for October's month in numbers? Maybe not.]
Just like the alst few months, I've added a space for you to link to some of your own numbers. What did you get up to in September?
