Another month totted up

and in a blink of our sunshade hidden eyes July was gone and all that is left is to tot up the numbers for sharing via Julie’s lovely month in numbers meme.


with a nice mix of seasonal and unexpected.

Julie has initiated a monthly communal count, taking the delights of counting to the new heights of  the possibility of graphs – you can never take the data analyst out of this girl!!

First up was the number of items in our handbags.

I often don’t take a bag and just use my pockets (hence my number 1 law when I get to be government for a day – all outer garments and lower body garments must include a practical pocket)

but the basics for pockets or a small bag are the same 4 items: camera, keys, purse, phone


when I do take a bigger bag I only take another 9 items giving a grand total of 13


tablet (sometimes kindle or book instead), hair scrunchie, bottle of water, torch, shopping bag, lipsalve, mint, pen (purple), sunglasses

and the biggest thing I notice is that yes I do love the red – purple section of the colour wheel

so interesting seeing how much or little others have in their bags.

Love your numbers, unearthed 2 pairs of shorts! ha ha, I have an image here Helena... I have live performance envy!

I'm finally getting into this meme. I have waaay more stuff in my purse.

I too unearthed two pairs of shorts - they're such a rarely required item!

I've been enjoying reading about how busy people have been in July - and how many interesting events they've attended like your seabird safari and street festivals.

And I usually take a bag - but I love a good pocket too! Essential for tissues! I think I've got it from my Grandma who always insisted on wearing cardigans that had pockets - or else she wore an apron with pockets around the house. You never know when you'll need one!

Thanks for joining me - I love that you're itching for a graph! Imagine a pie-chart with all the contents of our bags on it! ;-)

I've added you to the board now:

Happy August!

Julie :-)

Congratulations on being able to carry things in your pockets - I never can get on with them! But perhaps I should carry less :). That's a great and festive collection of numbers - was wondering if you went to the theatre in Pitlochry when you were there?

I'm very impressed that you can get away with just using pockets - I can't imagine there would be a pocket big enough for all the clutter that I carry around with me.

What a great set of numbers! Oh I hate pants that don't have pockets. What do they expect you to do with tissues? :)
