June in Numbers

I can't believe how quickly the month of June has gone.  It has been very eventful and exhausting in our house. 

29 June marked the end of the second school term here in New Zealand.  We are all well ready for a holiday, the staycation variety, and can't wait for a chance to let life just happen.

6 days of hockey out of 9 days was the number of days McKenzie played hockey in her endeavour to be selected for Aucklands under 13 girls hockey team and yes she made the team for which she was very excited about.

8 was the number of days McKenzie was then sick after trialling for the hockey team.  I think she had a cold on top of the end of the school term exhaustion and her body put up a protest. 

Last month we had had 7 days of struggling with the insurance company over the car accident we were involved in.  Now I can report that we have continued all of June, 30 days, without my husbands work car.  Still waiting for it come out of the panel beaters shops.  Hmmmmm

1 is the port a cath that is not working.  1 is also the number of dye tests the port a cath had to have to see if it could be fixed before he has to have surgery.Finally 0 is the number of monthly blood test Hayden had because his port a cath was not working.

( Haydens port a cath is there so blood can be accessed and IV fluids can be administered when he is sick)

70,000 litres is the amount of water the water tanks at our house now have.  Yes the two tanks are full to overflowing.  That is because it has been raining in the last couple of weeks and our tanks collect the water so we have water for everyday use at home.

1 day of fishing for Andre who has decided that him and fishing are just the perfect father and son activity.

64 litres is representative of the amount of milk my family uses in one month.  You would think in New Zealand it would be a cheap comodity but sadly not and $280,96 a lot of money really.

It is so lovely hopping around the world to see everyone's month in numbers. How fab that you are able to store so much water - I think we should do that more. Despite the amount of rain that we have had since April we are still under drought orders in this south east corner of the uk :(

Great numbers, I like the hockey and fishing pictures. And the inclusion of how much milk you drink is clever! x

Congratulations to McKenzie! And happy summer holidays! Hope Hayden´s port a cath is working properly now.
My daughter Tati was really excited as she noticed it is already her birthday in New Zealand and she can start celebrating! ;)

There's definitely been a trend for sporty kids amongst the Month in Numbers bloggers this time round. The fishing photo looks so tranquil!

I hope your children are feeling better soon and that the whole car problem gets sorted out soon ... and doesn't run into yet another month.

Thanks for joining in, I've pinned your post to the board with the others:

Happy July!

Julie :-)
