My month in numbers - March

Happy April Fool's day to you all!  I hope you get to 12 o'clock without any pranks being played on you!

I am here to share my Month in Numbers for March - a great idea from the beautiful mind of Julie Kirk.  You can read more about it and even join in (go on, you know you want to!) right here.

So here, in no particular order, are my numbers from March...

A fabulous £202.31 raised at the Comic Relief Bake Sale we held in reception at work.  We actually raised £192.31 but after Josh watched over an hour of the programme with me on Friday evening he was ready to throw in all his savings and pocket money (and has now changed his career goal from a film producer to someone who manufactures or administers vaccines).  The following day we persuaded him that £10 good pounds of his pocket money was enough and this meant that he could donate to other causes throughout the year.


A fabulous morning was spent walking Alderly Edge and the fields surrounding it (I know, I know, I should have counted how many miles but I was too busy chatting!).  There were 12 ladies and 6 dogs all together.  It was lovely that so many of us co-ordinated days off and child care to get together, especially as the date coincided with International Womens Day!  We followed the walk with a beautiful pub lunch in The Wizard which was extremely dog friendly!



A brilliant weekend was spent scrapping, drinking tea, eating cake, drinking wine and laughing uncontrollably.  This was Meadow barn and my 3rd visit.  There were 12 of us there and I managed 6 lay outs and 11 cards :)  Looking forward to 2014 already!


2 tickets were purchased to see Kelly and the boys, otherwise known as The Stereophonics, on 14th November in Manchester.  They are one of my favourite bands and it's been nearly 6 years since I last saw them so I am counting the days now! Oh, and it helps that I find Kelly Jones extremely sexy...not sure if it's the dark brooding looks or the Welsh accent!!


D27 was the seat I sat in at The Royal Exchage Theatre to watch To Kill A Mockingbird.  I studied this for my 'o' level so was enthralled to see it again and it had us on the edge of our seats all the way through.  The Royal Exchange is a round theatre and gives an unbelievable theatre experience for anyone who visits.  The website describes it like this...

The Royal Exchange Theatre is a seven-sided, glass-walled capsule, literally suspended from huge marble pillars situated in The Great Hall of the historic Victorian Cotton Exchange Buildings in Manchester city centre. The unique design means all seats are less than nine metres from the circular stage giving views from all angles. Our policy is to express the bewildering, complex wonderment of life through the full spectrum of theatre.



3 was the number of time I visited the dentist having developed an ongoing ache in my back tooth!  I am now looking forward to the procedure that is root canal work tomorrow morning!  Can't wait to be honest as having tooth ache on and off all month has not been fun so at least I should have a pain free April.

Thanks for reading my numbers - have you some to share? If so then link them up on Julie's blog and I look forward to reading them.

Thank you for being one of the first donations to my fundraising - ot means such a lot to me - and I can certainly see where Josh gets his kind + giving nature from!

Your walk was perfectly timed for Int. Women's Day! What a great get together. And I now declare March the official *crafty-meet-up* month! Sounds like you had as much fun as we did. [wine, tea, scrapping: what's not to have fun with?]

Thanks for joining me Julia, I've added you to the board now: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/my-month-in-numbers/

Aaack I hope the root canal went well and you are now pain free! I can't wait till November either as we are going to see Nickelback again! It is going to be quite a drive though as it is in Liverpool! We even booked this after we knew we were moving but they were just that good last time :)

So sorry to hear about the toothache - ongoing problems are just the worst :(. Hoping you will be reliably pain free very soon ... The theatre is wonderful, isnt it? Such gorgeous, glowing photos ... And catching up with friends like this must have been lovely!
