Month in Numbers | November and December

I ran out of steam a little with collating numbers 
for the last two months of 2016.
So much so, I filled two pockets with confetti and then stitched them shut
because I didn’t have anything else to put in them.
Here’s a look at November: 
 244: the number of lengths swum by me in the pool at the gym.
21: the number of times I went out with the pooch. 
11: the number of 12×12 scrapbook pages I made this month.
If only I wasn’t running out of scrapbook album storage space.
34: the number of Christmas cards written (and envelopes addressed).
I’m about half-way through our list. 
29: the number of Christmas presents purchased by me.
Most of them were ordered on line.
27: the number of Christmas presents wrapped by me.
Including one actually for me …  
And in December:
24: the number of daily visits from Elvis the Elf during December
and only 1 duff landing!
21: the number of thank-you letters a certain young man is going to have to write.
5: the number of people who stayed with us, but not all at the same time.
45: the number of mince pies we may have eaten, approximately.
Most were mini ones!
1334: the number of pieces in my surprise present …
the Lego Camper Van! 
66: the number of Christmas cards posted by us.
Month in Numbers is the brainchild 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.

  1. I always enjoy these Month In Number posts of yours, Ruth – you've been a faithful keeper-upperer (you know what I mean!). I smiled in recognition at the recognition of not enough space for scrapbook albums, and also at your wrapping your own present yourself. I refused this year, on the grounds that since I had actually bought it, Someone Else could jolly well wrap it :). Glad to know that the younger generation is still being encouraged to write thank-you cards – such a lovely courtesy.


  2. Again two great recaps of the months. I like the idea of the confetti. A couple of years ago someone included in a Christmas card & being a good scrapper, I saved but have known what to do with it. I did not get near enough mince pies this year …
