September Month in Numbers

It has been a lovely warm sunny month, just about 30 days of sunshine and 0 inches of rain!  Plenty of opportunities to wear my newly made  shorts and walk along the beach.


Rather than do Shimelle’s ‘Learn Something New Everyday’ class again, I made up 30 mini adventures to do in September.  I missed only 1 day.  More about my mini adventures in another blog post, but I did write 4 letters….


… and switched my radio over to BBC Radio 3 from my usual BBC Radio 2


I finished up with my Scavenger Hunt photos with a photo of 18 bird houses (you liked it so much I am going to show you t again!)


We made 1 trip to London to go to a concert in Hyde Park, at which 8 acts played: Chrissie Hynde, Bellowhead, Gregory Porter, Kacey Musgraves, Paloma Faith, Billy Ocean, Blondie and Jeff Lynne’s ELO:


It was a great day, Jeff Lynne played a fabulous set including all the classic ELO songs.  This was the first time he had played live for 26 years!

We made 1 trip to Birmingham to see some of my mum’s family; 2 uncles and 3 cousins plus their families.  There were 12 of us for lunch:



Nicholas got the keys to his apartment this month.  It needs lots of work, so we stripped the wallpaper in 4 rooms:


Finally, I know you have seen it before, but I finished the last of my 100 crotchet squares to make my lovely colourful, cosy blanket:



I am linking up with Julie for Month in Numbers.  Pop over and see what everyone else has done numerically in September.

I love September anyway, but this one really has been glorious. Fantastic to get so much wear out of your shorts. The bird houses definitely deserve another share. Great shot.

~Waving Hello~ Great to see you again Linda, we used to be on the same scarpping team many moons ago. :)
Loved the adventure month concept! Awesome place for walks and quite a lot of work.

The *100* squares and *18* birdhouses are definitely worth a 2nd share - very impressive! And how nice to still be wearing shorts in September!

I too love the sound of your mini-adventures - you should think about turning it into a play-along / class for next year! [I listen to Radio 3 most days when I'm tired of hearing people talking too much!]

You're on the board with the other moment-counters here Linda -

Thank you for joining me again and have a happy October!

Julie :-)
