Hi there lovely loyal readers, this is my very delayed month in numbers for March - it's delayed because it has just been such a busy month! I've hardly had time for my blog and I am so, so sorry, but I am going to have to be as brief as possible with my month as I am yet again busy, busy, busy!
17 = the day of March upon which my birthday falls. Yes, St. Patrick's Day, Guinness, Whiskey, Leprechauns and Clover are what it's all about...
28 = the age I was and
4 = the number of days I took off work to wrap around the weekend of my birthday and elongate celebrations
24 = approx hours of disbelief after opening an Alexander McQueen Neckscarf, Marc Jacobs Lola Ring and Radley Handbag for my birthday. Amongst a whole bunch of other equally gorgeous pressies.
Excuse the incredibly awful quality photographs... shame on me and my camera! :o)
11 = am when we met at our train station pub to get the train to Newcastle for a day at the Races at Gosforth to celebrate my birthday - that's me in the Paddy's Day hat (I have quite a collection now from each of the last 8 or 9 years!
£95 = biggest win of the day. It wasn't me, it was my other half though, which effectively means it was all mine...
My biggest win of the day was on number 11 (my second one!) Scales - who came in at 8/1 - I chose the horse because of it's excellent form... If you don't believe that, then believe this - I chose it because I am on the Weightwatchers Plan and Scales have become a big part of my life! Ta-Da £45 = fat ones I won :o)
1 = Comedy nights we attended - our 12 Firsts for the Month of March! The night was called Lady Ha Ha, a comedy night featuring all female comics, which we attended in International Women's Week! Woop! It's great to be a gal, especially when you see the talents of Vikki Stone, Bethany Black, and Tiffany Stevenson with compère Kate Smurthwaite.
1 = also the number of concerts I went to see. Florence and the Machine rocking Newcastle, she is one amazing woman.
1 = ALSO the number of days I spent Geocaching totally amazing, had a ball and had a long walk in the process, you can read about it in one of my previous posts by clicking on the word Geocaching!
24 = miles driven late at night to see the Yarn Bombing at Saltburn Pier. 10 = approximate minutes spent there it was FREEZING!
261 = miles travelled for a 3 = day training course in Bristol where I had to fend off mini pistachio macaroons like this...
... to achieve 6.5 = lb lost in March bringing my total to 20.5lb = lost in 12 = weeks since I began Weightwatchers! It works so well and I am so happy! I have dropped 1 = dress size and I am not only eating Special K. Double :o)
2 = visits to the Gym which I have been a member of for 3 = months... :o( At least I have set the ball in motion now - 45 = minutes on the bike to earn myself 9 = Pro Points - the rough equivalent of 18 = cheese triangles (light).
Finally 2 also = number of hours spent watching the Hunger Games. Wow. I simply loved it - what a cool, edgy take on dystopian literature. My lovely perfect other half bought me all 3 = books, so I am going to get cracking reading them over coming months. However, it's made me itch to get out 1984, Never Let Me Go and a Handmaid's Tale, all my other favourite Dystopian novels!
Hope you had a fab March, I will see you again (not so late) in April, loves.
