My Month in Numbers - April

Month in Numbers scarcely needs an introduction anymore, does it? Thanks to Julie's cleverly cunning counting, lots of us are noting numbers throughout the month (and if you aren't, yet, you can find out more here).

My numbers for April go a little like this:


105 - Cadbury mini eggs in a bumper pack. I counted before I ate because I'd never seen a bag that big before.

5 - minutes of acceptable picnic weather before the rain attacked our annual Easter Monday outing. Which we've been enjoying for over 20 years with 9 adults and up to 11 children. The teenagers did their own thing this year.

2 pictures I've been trying to get on the walls here for about 5 years. Now they are framed, but still not up. Also 1 curtain which I've discovered needs majot surgery because it has rotted away in the sun. Another job for my list which still has 2 cardigans to mend for my Mum right at the top.

1 Band Concert. It was, as The (not So) Small One said, epic with 1 tap dancing band leader and 90 band members on stage for an audience of 600. We had 1 very moving Titanic tribute by an orchestra of 4 (it's a school with a lot of Titanic stories to tell) and a lot more besides. I think it's safe to say it was a highlight in a month which has also included many, many hours of revision, driving lessons, timetables..you get the idea..BUT it's only 2 months til we go on holiday. Already.

I mixed some new Crate Paper with some Dear Lizzy to give this month's page an Spring look; and the tags lift up so I could fit everything in.

I love having a little peek into your life this way :) another gorgeous layou Sian, what I really like is the bird cut out, really striking :)

Scrappi Sandi said...

So many stories on one fabulous page! Please tell me you didn't eat ALL 105 mini eggs by yourself!(LOL)! I love the freshness of this LO & your doodled border is the perfect finishing touch! :D

A fascinating page,Sian.....and let's hope those Spring colours,encourage a bit of Spring weather!

Julie Kirk said...

Lovely page Sian - the little clouds are perfect.

So glad to see you joining in - hopefully the numbers help make for 'just enough' story to share.

It's probably a good job you didn't get Smarties or Rainbow Drops for Easter ... you could still be sitting there counting ...

You're on the board now, with the others: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/my-month-in-numbers/

Wonderful glimpse into the month of April. I always love the choice of colours for your pages. Trust your dentist doesn't read your blog - my grandchildren would have loved a bag containing 105 mini eggs. I never thought of it as a great counting exercise!

Carmen said...

I could never have counted 105 eggs without popping a few in my mouth :D

Love reading these month in numbers posts!

Barbara Eads said...

I like the idea of a month in numbers. I need to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

Beverly said...

Disappointing about the picnic but hopefully you still had some of those Cadbury minis to eat! I was a tapper in my younger days, not near enough of it these days in my opinion.

Gail said...

Lovely layout Sian - boy you're right on top of it with you post for April already. I must get back to this.

Lisa said...

love the spring look to this layout. it's such a great project and it's fun to see your numbers every month

Jo.C said...

It's really tickled me you sitting counting the mini eggs. That is just such an important number to know. More importantly - how long did it take you to eat them and did you feel sick after :0)
Great month x

Alison said...

Love the tags and the papers you've used Sian!

The lower right corner of your layout is full of such lovely goodness!
We're starting to learn more and more about the Titanic in anticipation of our visit.

Great page and numbers.

I love the layout with tags it's great.

Kelli said...

exquisite...how do you keep track of your numbers for your month, or do you sit down and just think of all that :) I love the concept, it's beautiful.

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

Lovely page and great setting.

I do love the spring look to this page, especially the clouds. The band concert sounds amazing! And 'yay' that it's not too long until the holiday now! x

Louise said...

detailed numbers Sian - lovely to read what April brought you. How long did it take you to eat all those mini eggs though?

Clare said...

Another interesting collection of numbers, I'm thinking of all those mini-eggs! Really like how the papers are showing throught the cut-outs on your tags.

Lisa said...

A lovely page for this Springy month :) I can totally relate to the pictures not getting on the walls, even five years later...

Karen said...

What a lovely spring page! I especially like that water can embellishment.

Sheena said...

Your page has such a lovely spring look x

Sue Althouse said...

I would need to stay far away from that many Cadbury eggs - too tempting! Would have liked to been at the Titanic tribute. We went to an exhibit here that was very moving. Lovely page!

KraftyKaren said...

Fabulous page and some great numbers in there. Not sure I could have counted the mini eggs before diving in LOL!!

alexa said...

And very splendid it looks too - you've collected a grand number of numbers there. :) I always admire your ability to layer.

Jimjams said...

Great page - am in awe of anyone who can eat 105 eggs!

Missus Wookie said...

Great counting and 105 creme eggs or just chocolate eggs? We appalled several friends by saying we don't buy extra chocolate at Easter. Princess helpfully pointed out that we do occasionally AFTER Easter in the sales ;)
