In last month's 'Month in Numbers' post I was attempting, against all odds, to keep thoughts of winter at bay but, fighting that losing battle, this month I'm just going to go for full-blown denial. The strain of which must be taking its toll as ... I don't think I've bought any shoes this month. None.
None that I can remember at least ... anyway, here's my August 2011 - in numbers:
1 = the number of trips made to the seaside.
It was a spur of the moment idea of mine, which was OK because the coast is only 20 minutes away and, if anything we should go there more often. This particular trip was to metaphorically 'blow the cobwebs away' but, if you know the kind of summer we've been having here then you'll understand that this trip not only blew away the cobwebs ... but the spiders and all thoughts they've ever had in their spidery lives about spinning-webs ever again too:
Now, why don't have these spur of the moment ideas on warm days?
2 chips 1 fish = the takeaway we took home to eat after getting rain in our ears.
So do you have two fish and two chips each? Or should you just get two fish and one chips? One fish and two chips? With or without scraps? Open? Wrapped? So many decisions. Enough to make you hungry really ... We ate it all. 100%.
11 = the number of prizes given away during the Going Postal series.
47 = the number of items pinned to the Going Postal Pinterest board.
96 = the number of people who were following the Going Postal board.
40 miles and 100 years back in time = what was necessary to travel when we visited Beamish:
In fact, for a good proportion of the time I felt I was in Larkrise to Candleford!
6 = the number of layouts I made for Creativity Magazine, the paint splattering I added to one of them left me looking like this:
Finally ... remember our dabbling with pumpkin relationships in last month's number round-up? Well ... it seems something worked ...
38cm = the circumference, so far, of the one and only squash we've managed to grow. It's just a pity that it decided to grow right above the door:
[If you swing back here tomorrow I'll show you the layout I've made about this particular peculiarity in our garden.]
So, that's my August right there. Now it's your turn.
If you're thinking of joining in
with your own numbers for August you can add your post to the linky box below but as it's the first time I've used this version, if you have any problems, just leave me a link in the comments instead.
Bon voyage August. Welcome back September.
For the record I hate September, so you should brace yourself for some grumpy numbers this time next month. OK? OK.
