A Month in Numbers: January

This year for my month in numbers, I have decided to scrap a LO each month. Because I am making a dedicated album for it, I am hoping this will mean that I will keep upto date as it will annoy me to see missing months.
I am also planning to make a small notebook to carry around so I can jot my numbers down as I think of them. Actually, I am planning on making lots of little notebooks for various 'things' but I have to stop thinking about it and do it lol

The LO is based on a graph which was an idea I thought would be useful for this. It is challenge 10 of the CHA challenges on 2peas . I used SC kit from Dec and also used machine stitching for the first time...yay, I didn't break the machine.

Ok, so my numbers read as follows:

2 teapot cosies that I talked about here

408 pages in the book that I read last week...The Marsh Kings Daughter by Elizabeth Chadwick is a romance novel set in the time of King John.  I really enjoyed it and i wouldn't really be one for romance novels normally.

7 birthdays to celebrate this month. #3 and #4 both had birthdays. #3 was 3 (!) and #4 was 2. The boss had his birthday near the beginning of the month and we went out the day after for a meal and a few drinks.  We don't normally do anything so it was nice.

5 days that I suffered with a sore throat.  That is a long time for me. I normally get ill for about 48 hours then just run tired for a week afterwards.  After the sore throat, I had sinus trouble for another 3 days. I don't know if it is good or bad that this all happened during my week off between nights. 

5 1/2 is the size that I bought my new trainers in. Nothing remarkable in that I hear you cry? Will you be surprised if I tell you that I wear a size 7 normally?


  1. Fun numbers :) and how I smiled when I read that first paragraph, oh how I could have written that about stopping thinking and start doing lol

  2. Love the page - well done for getting them scrapped too.

  3. That's a great stripey tea-cosy! (I went and had a look). I love your numbers too, and am glad of the book recommendation though it sounds a hefty tome! Your Lo is lovely - admiring your lettering.

  4. Hi Jayne.

    I love that some people are going to have full albums of their numbers! It's very exciting.

    And more January birthdays?? Nearly everyone mentioned a birthday this time around.

    I've pinned your post to the Month in Numbers board with everyone else who's joined in:

    Happy February!

    Julie :-)
