August in Numbers
Posted on September 2, 2012
Sorry this is a bit late – but I went to be at 7pm last night with a headache and slept all night through. Thanks to hubby for sorting out the kids so I could get some rest – he is lovely!
Each month I join Julie Kirk and many others in recording my month in a numerical fashion. To learn more visit Julie’s blog here, or her post for this month here. Now for my August in numbers:
9116, 5028 and 9057 ~ our Eurostar train numbers to Disneyland Paris and back again! This photo is of me, my mum, my step-dad, and my hubby, in the elevator at Ashford International train station, getting very excited about our trip:
67,200 ~ my score on the Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast ride, where you shoot aliens with a laser gun. Little miss scored 17,900, and my hubby scored 118,000, but the champion of our group was my step-dad, who scored 126,100! Here he is with the world’s biggest Buzz Lightyear fan, my nephew, who wouldn’t shoot the aliens because he thought they looked too sad (bless him!):
€317.57 ~ spent by me, hubby, and our kiddies, over 4 days, mostly on food. We ate lots of buffet dinners to fill us up, this one was my favourite, at Plaza Gardens, as it had lovely gammon, and delicious cakes for dessert. (Baby boy looks a bit confused in this photo – it’s because I stopped feeding him his banana so I could take the picture. Cheeky mummy!):
266 and 211 ~ my winning scores on Scrabble, when I my dad came down to visit the weekend after we returned from Disney, and I beat him and hubby at two games. Go me!:
3 freshwater shrimps, 2 frogs, and 1 beetle, caught (and then set free again), on a pond dipping and bug hunting adventure in the forest:
10 tasks out of 20 completed on the Gruffalo Trail at Moors Valley Country Park. After 10 tasks the children (and yes, alright, the adults too!) were loosing interest, so we headed to the playparks instead:
9 ~ shades of colour on my face, when my daughter’s friend came for a sleepover, and I painted their faces, and then let them paint mine in return:
53 ~ the approximate number of times that buckets of water were collected from the sea, when my brother and his wife and kids came to stay, and we took them to Swanage for a few hours. The children were filling buckets to fill up a pool of water which they had dug (with help from my brother), and baby boy had great fun playing in it (they were all quite wet by home-time, luckily we had changes of clothes!):
Another wonderful, busy month. I predict that September will be equally busy, with the county show yesterday, a visit from my sister-in-law and her kids tonight, my daughter starting school this week, and a trip to London for me, all planned so far this month!
I hope the numbers are in your favour this September! x
