Another month brings another Month in Numbers round-up so let's start with a photo taken exactly one month ago:
Anyway, when I took that photo ... as well as '1.9.2011' being significant, so was this number ...
22 years = approximately [but I could be wrong] the number of years it's been since I've visited the 'seaside' with my both parents. [Mam, Dad, if you can correct me on that figure please do ... but think ... have we all been on a beach at the same time since Florida?].
He also stood very still and let me hold him out of the way while a big dumper truck type thing drove along the sand mainly because ... he thought it was being driven by Bob the Builder!
I think I was as delighted as he was when the man [complete with convincing Bob-like hard-hat] waved at us as he passed by! Aren't people great?
4p = the exorbitant amount of money James and I spent in an arcade at Whitby:
We don't often visit the arcades but hey, call me a wild spontaneous kid if you will, but this particular occasion I threw caution to the wind and decided to go in and spend all the copper I had in my purse.
Which was 4p. 2p each. 1 go each on the 2p push machines.
Unsurprisingly ... we didn't win anything.
9 = the number of pages my work appears on in the issue of Creativity which was released this month:
Receiving this particular issue was double exciting for me as one of the photos of my projects was taken by me in our back garden and they liked it enough to print it! If you've got a copy it's the one with the glittery Halloween bats dangling on a gate!
Speaking of dangly things ...
1 = the number of mice caught on camera in our greenhouse banqueting on bird food ... by sitting in the bag James had haning up in there!:
What a life! If that was me ... and if the bird food was ready salted crisps ... if only ...
Well I think that's all of my numbers for September really ... because I think I've exhausted its happenings by blogging my Learn Something New Every Day journal pages throughout the month.
If you're new to the whole idea you can catch up here and if you decide to play along and blog your own numbers just yell out and I'll swing by. You can join in any time at all - it doesn't need to be the end of the month and I'll edit this post to add you in so others can come and visit you and your numbers too.
Those who've joined in with their September numbers so far include:
- Dawn from Scrap Happens joined in here for the first time this month;
- Nathalie from An Ounce of Creativity blogged hers for the second time here;
- 'NannaKate' joined in once again here.
- Another first-timer, the lovely Sian from From High in the Sky blogged her September statistics here.
- And another novice gave it a go! Amy from Amy, etc blogged hers here.
Now let's get stuck into October shall we?
It's only the 1st day but for me, it's started so well ... I'm wearing a summer dress [in this freakish yet beautiful weather] and I've eaten a raspberry pannacotta so that's a fighting start if ever I saw one!
I'll see you very soon as I have the next Purple Phase palette plus the final installment of my LSNED journal pages and another It's A Sign post on their way next week.
Until then ... happy new month to you!
