My Month in Numbers ~ March 2013

Having failed to post my numbers for February, I thought I’d get in early this month. March started with an eighty mile road trip, to meet up with nine lovely ladies, for two whole days of uninterrupted crafting time, in beautiful Herefordshire.


The following Friday was a mufti day for the children and they went off to school proudly wearing the two t-shirts they had made themselves.


On Mothering Sunday, I received this package, which contained two bars of my favourite Green & Blacks, along with a hand drawn card from my son.


My daughter gave me these two paper dolls she had drawn, of herself and her brother in their home made t-shirts.


Spring seems to be a little late putting in an appearance this year, but two bunches of daffodils help to bring a hint of it into the house.


I made twelve cards, including one for my niece who turned seventeen this month, along with Ten twinchies and twenty inchies for a swap.


I tried two new recipes, including this yummy Keralan style prawn curry from the Hairy Dieter’s book. I read two books: The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, which I enjoyed and Neverwhere, which I loved. I watched thirteen episodes of The Killing. I know I’m late to the party, but I’m enjoying catching up. Gotta love Lovefilm.

That’s my March. A bit of a random mix this month and there are a lot of ‘twos’ in there! For lots more numerical posts head on over to Julie’s place.

It's official: March is undoubtedly *crafty-meet-up* month. I've lost count how many of us met up and crafted with friends last month.

I should make official T-shirts for next year!

I see that creativity runs in the fammily - your kids are talented young gift-givers!

Your post reminded me that I completely forgot to mention the books I read last minth in my post - which is something I was planning to mention all year. Oops!

Thanks for joining me Fiona, I've added you to the board now:

Happy April!

Julie :-)

[btw: I'm really curious to know who the 2 you know are now!]
