My Weekend by the Numbers

So I totally stole this idea from Miss Em, right down to the idea of having a picture of numbers ( but not the same picture - that would be a little too Single White Female.... ). Feel free to steal it from me if you like ( but not my picture, I have dibs on that one ). Here goes:

30 - dollars spent on my almost-three year old neice when I took her shopping with me.

5 - dollars wasted when she only ate the icing off her donut and decided that her milkshake was too cold.

4 - goals scored when my brothers soccer team won their semi-final. That would be 4 - nil - bring on the final next week!

30 - millimetres of rain that fell on DubVegas over the weekend.

12 - how many of the soccer boys i predict will be getting pnuemonia after training and playing in all that rain.

55 - minutes spent practising yoga on Saturday afternoon.

1 - apology from my yoga teacher for subjecting me to one too many " roll ups/ roll downs " during my classes this week. No worries, my stomach is looking all the better for it!

800 - approximate amount of calories I consumed when eatingmy Dads homemade lasagne. But its Dads lasagne and its so delicious and cheesy and.....

0 - number of naps I took. Yes, i missed out on my weekend naps. What a travesty....

1 - book that i finally got around to finishing: " On Chesil Beach ", by Ian McEwan.

A little disappointing after " Atonement " but certainly not the worst thing I've ever read. It actually took me a little while to get into it, so i think that may have been half the trouble. Plus, and this might just be me, but one of characters is just really unlikeable, no matter how much the author tries to explain her perspective. Its hard to like something when you dont particularly like one of the protagonists....


  1. First off, this is an excellent idea for a blog post, and I'm jealous I didn't think of it earlier. I vow to take the idea further by doing a Weekend by the Roman Numerals edition... wait, no that won't work... Weekend by the Numbers in Pi edition... shoot I don't even know those... Um... Weekend by the Hieroglyphics edition.. no, no, that will make me talk about people like they are sorcerers and high priests...

    Alright, scrap that. You win.

  2. globus notes you're still practising with that yoghurt. globus however has moved on and uses it successfully as a base for curry sauce :-)

    like the new blog layout btw. although as a thought, the header pic could be a bit smaller so you see the first blog entry before the browser page fold....

  3. Im in, I might as well steal from you too since i get most of my online ideas from you anywho. Besides it was a fun weekend!!!

  4. This is great info to know.
