So, that's month No.2 under our collective belts then. How was it for you? Too quick? Over in a flash? That's the kind of thing people say about February isn't it?
28 days = The number of days in February. A fact which people always comment on. But really it's only, at the most, 3 days shorter than any other month so how come it has such a marked effect?
I could have used those 3 extra days to work on deadlines ... but then, I'd probably only fill them with tea-drinking, web-surfing and general frittering. So perhaps it's all for the best ...
7 = the random number which has emerged from amongst the random scratches on our dining room floor:
All I need to do now is keep my eyes peeled for 5 more random numbers scratched into the tiles ... then I'm putting the lottery on ...
57 = number of screenshots I took and then prettified to illustrate my Tips for the Twitter-curious class:
That was a lot of editing. A lot.
I even taught myself GIMP so I could get the exact style I wanted. ['...taught myself GIMP' is such a weird thing to hear oneself say ... ].
But the class was well received and people have made positive comments about the look of the whole thing ... so it must have been worth it.
[If you still haven't dipped your toes in the Twitter waters ... don't forget that the whole series of posts can be found here].
2 months / approx 52 days earlier than last year = when I first 'pegged out' my washing on the line! They even dried too. But, and please don't tell the scrapbooking police, I didn't take a photo of it. I know ... what's wrong with me?
If you need to see photographic evidence that I do indeed have a washing line ... [I know, you're anxious for proof] you'll have to refer to last year's photo instead. Yes, there is indeed a last-year's first viable-spring-day-to-peg-laundry-online photo. This really could turn into some scientific climate monitoring ...
2666 = the title of the novel I'm currently reading:
898 = the number of pages in the aforementioned novel. And you thought my progress updates while reading Wolf Hall were painful ... at only 660 pages Wolf Hall was a mere appetiser for this tome!
12 = the page I'm on as of today. And so a year of 'oh God is she still reading that book' updates begin ...
£37:99 = the price of a pair of unusual leather boots I spotted in the Clearance section of TK Maxx:
I hadn't intended to buy more black boots. But they were such a find I could hardly resist.
Asking James for his opinion he responded: 'They're a bit weird'.
'You say that like it's going to put me off' I replied.
Then I bought them.
2 = the number of charity sacks filled with coats and bags from when I cleaned out the hallway. Yes bags. I'm voluntarily getting rid of bags. That can only indicate one of two things either:
- I'm being virtuous and trying to simplify my life ... and my hallway ... or;
- I'm clearing a space so I can buy more.
18 = the number of items arranged in the 'grand hallway re-hang':
We only had a handful of things on display before, but after receiving some new [mainly birdy] pictures for Christmas I needed to branch out on to a new wall ... or two ...
I might start charging for entry to my gallery ...
There's a few people revealing their numbers along with me this month:
- Claire Salisbury / @craftyclaireliz has joined in again with a Month in Numbers scrapbook page here.
- And Beki Norman / @beksynormz has joined in for the first time here.
- Plus my favourite Hannah ever - @whoisHannahB has blogged hers here.
- Here's Candace's post.
- And Katy / @CatesbyK shared hers here.
So how about you? Are there any February numbers of your own floating about that you'd care to throw this way?
Or maybe you just want to make a note to start logging some numbers during March instead and check back in with me at the end of the month instead? If you let me know you're playing along I'll link you up here so everyone can drop by and see.
Either way, keep in touch, I'll look forward to hearing your vital statistics.
