My Month In Numbers - March

Hi. It's the end of the month and that means it's time for My Month In Numbers.
March was a holiday and birthday month....

2 - visits to Sheer Rocks restaurant. I'll be dreaming of hanger steak and crushed potatoes for a while

11 - different ice-cream flavours eaten on holiday
vanilla, strawberry, rum & raisin, chocolate, caramel, amaretto, strawberry& vanilla, coconut, blueberry, cinnamon and cherry

365 - the number of beaches in Antigua

28 - My birthday. I'm now 42

20 - the amount in dollars (EC) for an amaretto sour. Charles sure knew how to make a good cocktail

6 - books read, 5 of these on holiday

If you're wondering about my layout design it's based on the programme titles of the wonderful Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency based on the Douglas Adams book. As soon as I saw them I spotted their scrapping potential and made use of the fundamental interconnectedness of all things ;-)

 If you would like to check out more month in numbers visit Julie at Notes On Paper she even has a Pinterest board especially dedicated to MIN.

Genius layout! I *must* show it to James who's just had a Dirk Gently quote sign-written on his van!

Your holiday sounds divine as does all that ice-cream.

Ooh, Mand, amaretto sour, now that sounds like a good idea ;) and have you tried amaretto with fresh orange juice (1 part amaretto to 2-3 parts orange juice)? D.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.
LOVE your LO - such a fab idea and so well executed. Love it!!!!!

Ooo...I LOVE Antigua Amanda. *Sigh* So nice that you got some sunshine and I really like the idea of Month in Numbers layouts.

There is just one number that you have overlooked... the number of pounds that you put on eating all of those delicious ice creams! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

Louise said...

I love your design! And those ice-creams sound amazing - better than the breakfast cereal I am about to eat!

I love your LO design, it is genius.
That is some amount of icecream to get through :)

I'm catching up with the numbers today - don't know which one to love more, the ice cream flavours or the cocktails! Great page - even seeing the words Stephen Mangan makes me want to laugh

Tamara said...

I love your page and all your numbers. Of to count ice cream for my next month numbers I think.

Sarah H said...

Now I have a craving for ice cream ;-)
