My month in numbers

Not only the end of the month but the end of the year.  2012 has been a real mixed bag for our family with some lovely highs and some awful lows but that old saying 'what doesn't break you makes you stronger' is very apt and I think we must be a very strong family now!

So, December, my old friend, what numbers can I take from you?

A Gazillion and ninety three - number of calories I have consumed, mainly via chocolate and sloe gin.  But I have enjoyed each and every one.
55 - the age my husband became on that memorable date ....12.12.12
730 The number of attendees to the Senior Presentation Evening my colleague and I organised at work
44 special awards presented at the ceremony, 160 GCSE certificates and 108 A Levels presented 
2 left foot boots bought by me as a present for my daughter.  That was as much a surprise for me as it was for her when she unwrapped them ...'Erm, mum, why isn't there a right foot?'
1 trip to Zara in Cambridge on Friday to resolve the 2 left feet issue
5 the model of the new iphone I upgraded to on Saturday.  I loved the iphone 4 I've had for 2 years, and have high hopes for the new one
1 the number of M&S liquid salted caramel chocolates I am trying to restrict myself to every day.
2 the number of times I haven't given in and had a 2nd, or 3rd
1 number of Ugg boots ruined by the dog

Now head on over to Julie's blog and see what December has brought for other people.

Have a good NYE whatever you have planned and see you in 2013!

We had the boot incident happen to us - but we were unable to sort as had bought while on holiday in France. I seem to remember I was being quite adventurous and had bought roller boots - maybe had a lucky escape :0)
Have a brilliant New Year x

You still have a few hours to clear out all remaining M&S caramel chocolates...go for it!!! Hope to see you at Enfield on the 12th? I have a day off in leiue, so can make it...result!! Happy New Year! :D

Well I'm afraid I did one better on the boot front. Tried on one because I was in a hurry and then bought the pair without trying on the other only to realise that I had bought one size 4 and one size 6! Quick trip to Ipswich to resolve the problem. Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing you next Saturday x

Can just imagine your daughter's face when she opened the boots!....thank goodness I didn't get any of these salted caramels-I wouldn't be as good as you!!....Hope next year has more highs than lows

Glad the boot issue was easily rtesolved. My method is to go ahead and eat all the caramels so I am no longer tempted lol ;> Happy New Year!

Happy New Year - here's hoping you won't be tested again [but at least you know that strength's there].

And I do hope there are no chocolates left now [some things you are allowed to be weal around!]

Thanks so much for joining in once again and for sharing your festive statistics.

All the best for 2013

Julie :-)
