Blogtoberfest 2013 - Day 24 - My Month in Numbers September

Well they do say better late than never - so here are my numbers for September!!

As always the most important number is how long till we get our next Marillion fix - it is now only 15 sleeps away - I'm so excited!!!!

My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary - we had a family meal in their favourite Chinese restaurant attended by 17 people.

and then a week later we took them to the beautiful island of Guernsey for a little holiday.

This beautiful cottage was our home for 9 days.

A highlight of the holiday was a day on the beautiful island of Herm - it only took 20 minutes to get there by boat and we enjoyed beautiful weather that day - a glorious 20C.  We made our way to Shell Beach which was a 45 minute walk from the harbour.

Coming back we had to negotiate the Rosiere steps to pick our boat back up, what a bad number collector I am because I was so busy trying to stay upright on them that I didn't count them and I cannot find anywhere online that actually says how many there are - but there were a lot!!

We also spent 2 nights in Manchester and went on an elephant hunt around the Trafford Centre - there were over 100 elephants and we managed to track down 85 of them.  Here are some of my favourites -

I also held my first fundraiser of the year - I was allowed to have a stall and run a raffle at my parent's sheltered housing's weekly coffee morning.  We raised £214 for a local charity Children with Cancer Fund, we are now busy getting ready for another one in November.

Craftwise I made 9 Christmas cards, 11 other cards, 10 post it note pads, 2 layouts and a 20 page 6x6 album for my parents.

Month in numbers is a regular blog feature on Julie Kirk's blog - Notes on Paper, you can find out how to participate here

  1. Hi Karen. Sorry it took me while to get here! But I'm here now and your post is safely pinned to the board:

    Your holiday looks so beautiful - the photo of you on the sand is lovely - how nice that you had the perfect weather for it.

    And I can't believe [well, actually I *can* believe it!] that you're off to see Marillion again so soon. Time's certainly flying.

    The elephants look fab - especially the animal print one! And congratulations on your fundraising - that's a great total.

    Thanks for joining me once again. Wishing you a wonderful November.

    Julie :-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
