My month in numbers - July x

Here we are again at the end of another month, how quickly they keep passing! I love this alternative way to record your life following Julie Kirk's original concept.
2 - Harriet & Matt completing Discover 2 kayak course.
£231.58 - amount of cash I spent on uniform in the school shop & that doesn't include shoes & shirts!!
£27.21 - Got stung for this amount of duty when shipping these iphone cases from the States.
17 - blog posts written this month - my average this year.
148 - number of fabric pieces sewn together to make this quilt top.
54 - miles return to visit my friend Jilly & her 2 gorgeous Grandsons.
5 - olympic tickets to join a crowd of 18,290 to watch Japan beat Canada 2-1 & Sweden beat South Africa 4-1 with only 1 yellow card.
 1 - recipe this month, a very tasty honeycomb.
1.4457 - exchange rate for Australian dollars to the pound, needed for our holiday next month.
This month would not be complete for me without these stats...
30th - Olympic Games, 3rd time in London, 204 countries competing & 3 amazing medals for Team GB so far & hundreds of hours glued to the fab BBC TV coverage.

Many thanks for looking

  1. Ooh ... I wonder if 'Olympics' will be the recurring theme across July's My Month in Numbers posts? And maybe next month's too ... and I never thought to mention it!

    Mine could have been something like '15 minutes: how long I held out before openly weeping over the incredible opening ceremony!'

    The quilt looks great [but that water looks cold!]- enjoy your holiday!

  2. What a great post for your month ~ so pleased to hear that someone actually got Olympic tickets!

  3. It's a very nice idea to collect some Olympic statistics. i'm no sports fan, so I thought I wouldn't be interested, but it has managed to suck me in..

  4. Loving the mention in your numbers!! Fancy remembering to check your mileage!! Was lovely to see you before you off to the other side of the world!! Xxxx

  5. I love the mix of big, once in a lifetime events and the more everyday :)

  6. Great month in numbers..... Didn't think of the Olympics, will save that for August.

  7. What an exciting month. I am very jealous that you have a trip planned as I love to visit Australia. I love your numbers this month

  8. Visiting from Julie MiN. I loved your list and I too noticed the mix of numbers. Have a wonderful holiday & don't forget to collect some amazing travel numbers x
