Q: Why was 10 afraid?
A: Because seven ate nine and ten was next.
Yes folks, it's time for 'my month in numbers' Even though I'm a maths-o-phobic, I like to join in with the fun over at Julie's blog.
Q: Which month do soldiers hate?
A: The month of March
OK enough of that - let's see what's been happening over the last 31 days ...
First of all, a biggy. On the 14th I celebrated the 55 years that I have been on this earth. Same day but totally different year - Michael Caine. Not a lot of people know that ;-) Also, same day same year, same hour practically, Prince Albert of Monaco. When my mum turned on the radio after my arrival, the news was full of how Princess Grace had just given birth to a son. Same day but many years earlier and with absolutely nothing else in common with me - Albert Einstein!
-7 the temperature in the Ice Bar when R took me there for my birthday treat
4 different types of sandwich, 2 types of scone, 2 desserts, 2 marshmallow toadstalls and 1 piece of cake at the Mad Hatters tea party (oh, and especially for Julie - one place setting which when placed together made up the picture of a zebra!)
4 different new recipes for chocolate learnt at cookery demonstration; 20 million calories if you ate all those dishes in one sitting
5 scrappers here for a mini crop, 3 I'd never met before 2 from USA and 1 from Spain
1 meerkat toy arrived to live with us, 10 days - the amount of time it took Royal Mail to transport him from Edinburgh to Hertfordshire. REcorded delivery as well. Tut Tut Royal Mail, stay behind after school and write out for me 100 times 'Could do better'.
Far too many - days that have been freezing cold and/or snowy
Far too low - temperatures this month. Let's face it, if you're not in an ice bar you don't want to see a minus sign in front of the temperature
How's your month in numbers been shaping up?
