Month in Numbers: July

Month in Numbers is the brain child of Julie and you'll always find a warm welcome over at her place.  Not to mention entertaining posts about a varied list of topics.
Go on over, stop by and say hello, then come back here. 
2 hours 20 minutes: the time it took for me to donate my 22nd pint of blood ~ next time, make an appointment
10: the amount of times I drove the car ~ the highest monthly total this year
12: the total number of times I got into the swimming pool at the gym
7: the amount of times The Boy Child went to the creche at the gym ~ we call it Holiday Gym Club ~ and it means that I can continue with my exercise routine during the summer holidays
1: the amount of Olympic Torch Relays we attended
99.50: the amount in pounds sterling spent in Costa Coffee on drinks and breakfasts.  How is that even possible?  I need to find a cheaper way of treating The Boy Child.

Nice layout ... gotta love a rounded corner!

It's quite scary how little things add up isn't it? I keep threatening to add up how much all my 'bargain' sale dresses have cost me - to see if it would have covered the cost of something that I *really* want!

Although, after giving all that blood I think you deserve a treat now and again!

p.s: I love the wooden kiwi! *hopes it's a kiwi*

I always admire those who manage to put their numbers on a page by the end of the month! Bravo! There's no way I would be patient enough to wait that long to donate blood or have the courage to get in the pool 12 times in a month! :P

Scary how those Costa treats add up! But I am sure he really enjoys it so worth every penny of spending happy time together.
I'm full of admiration for you sticking with the extra exercise plan, I'd have given up a long time ago!

I admire your blood donation efforts, I am needle phobic and also have difficult veins so have cowardly not been as brave or generous as you.
How much at Costa Coffee?!!!!

I like how you did the layout!

Clair said...

Maybe you could give blood more often? Do they still provide you with tea and a biscuit afterwards?

Haven't been able to donate for years due to medication! x

I remember the 'costs' so well when the children were 'off' school for summer holidays......bet it's even more frightening these days. Nearly £100 at Costa - WOWSEE........but I always missed them so so mjch when then went back to school and always shed a few tears at the gates when I took them back to start a new term. Enjoy it all - LOVE your month in numbers too
