Month in Numbers - June 2012

As it is now the end of the month it is time to look back at June 2012, along with Julie over at the Notes on Paper Blog (If you want to view other Month In Numbers posts or find out how to take part take a look at Julie's blog).

The first few Numbers this month were generated while visiting The Collection (Art & Archology in Lincolnshire) in Lincoln...

2,500 years that this Dugout Boat was sitting at the bottom of the River Witham before being discovered in 2001. Using the same technology as used to preserve the 'Mary Rose' means that this boat is on display in The Collection.

400 Mosaic tesserae used to create this mosaic design (however I must confess that it was not me who created this master piece) - This is one of many activities for children in The Collection.

93 empty seats in the 'Film Show; featuring object found in the museum.  DH & I were the only people watching the Film Show.

Now onto other numbers that occurred this month...

£26.00 spent on Plants for the garden. We brought a selection of plants that are now out in the garden & in a collection of pots in front of the house.  You just can't beat a colourful plant display in front of the house.

427 individual Eddie Stobart vehicles seen so far, taking me to 710 in the League table.

This picture is of 'Holly' this was also the name of the first Barn Owl I looked after - but I must say that my Holly-Girl was better looking that Eddies :)

Korean Display Team (Black Eagles)
391 photos taken at RAF Waddington Air Show on Saturday - then the battery died in both my camera & DHs (which I was using while he was working).  Despite getting wet during the rain in the morning it was a fantastic day and for the first time in 15 years I got to watch some of the flying displays.

On 23 June I celebrated my 1st Blogaversary, if you would like chance to win some Candy please go to my Blogaversary post HERE.


  1. Another fab month in numbers - great picture of the red arrows.

  2. Cool numbers! I'm impressed with all the photos you took at the airshow! x

  3. Hi Helen - I think my comment on this post last moth must have got lost in the ether somewhere. I definitely left you a long, rambling comment about how I'd been at the Airshow on Saturday too and how we didn't visit the museum this time round but our paths may have crossed as we went to the gallery.

    Anyway - I hope you didn't think I'd forgotten you!

    Julie :-)
