Month in Numbers ~ January

Thanks to Sian {for monthly inspiration} and to Julie {who started the whole month in numbers idea}, I've dipped my toes in counting numbers for January.
50: the number of minutes it took to open a savings account for The Boy Child. Hello, I'm trying to give you money.
5: the number of times I drove our car in January.  For trips other than the supermarket, I walk everywhere.
15: the number of visits to Costa Coffee {and where I spent a whopping £44.85}.  Some of the trips were with The Boy Child, some were with friends and some were solo visits.  Mostly it was just coffee, but some visits included purchasing a yoghurt or a croissant.
217:  the combined ages of the six people we know who celebrated a birthday in January.
34: the number of thank-you cards I wrote on The Boy Child's behalf for Christmas and birthday presents.  Will be very glad when he can do this himself.
179: the number of 6x4 photos I had processed for free at the store where my camera came from.  A very welcome voucher.
60: the number of pounds spent topping up Oyster cards {used for cheaper travel on London transport}.

How about you?  Do you count through your month?

Gosh - I daren't count the number of journeys I make in my car - that is the difference between living in a rural area and London I suppose. love the number of Costa visits :0)

What a lucky The Boy Child. All those presents and a good mum who writes thank you notes.

Love the layout - the numbers and the colours. Great page!

Sian said...

34?! Wow, that's a lot of thank you's and a lot of presents!

I love your design :)

Nearly choked on my tea at the amount you spent on coffee!! Yikes! Glad that your DN features in the birthdays number :0)

I love this idea and I'm totally going to keep track of some numbers in February. This would be a great idea for Project Life inserts too!

Jimjams said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE your page of numbers ... there may be a shameless scraplift coming on :o) Storing away the combined birthdays one for future use too as it's so clever! Can't believe how few car journeys you've had to make, but then I didn't drive in London either - couldn't manage without a car now though ... well I could, but ... ;o)

Nathalie said...

You drove only 5 times in the month!!!!!!!!! I do that in one day, every day of the month! I am very jealous but I guess here in Southern California public transportation, or walking are not even an option! Very nice page!

Melissa said...

Gee, wish I could get away with less driving. Your experience with the bank sounds very familiar.

Amy said...

You are lucky to have so many good facilities so close to where you live - I have to drive almost everywhere!

Nanna Kate said...

Hope you have a Costa Coffee Card... you'll be owed at least one free coffee and croissant! :o)
Excellent month in numbers, hope you are here next month too X

Suzie said...

Great round up! My Oyster card eats money ...

Lovely numbers, isn't it scary when you realize how much you spend in certain places? Starbucks rathe than Costa for me but still....
