2014 in numbers..

IMG_1616[1]


I do love a good statistic. {Well, most of the time, anyway, unless it's a weight-related one, in which case it's likely to make me cry, so I haven't included any of those.}

So, I decided I'd do a 2014 in numbers post as a way of rounding up the year. 

  • Letters sent in 2014: 106
  • Letters received in 2014: 111 2014 Letters
  • Dresses made for me in 2014: 66
  • Dresses made for others in 2014: 7
  • Capes made in 2014: 1
  • Needles broken in 2014: 3
  • Sewing machines broken in 2014: 1
  • Fingers stitched through in 2014: 1 Unfortunately(?), no photo. Nor was this related to aforementioned machine breakage.

  • Spinning classes attended in 2014: 103
  • Pairs of Irregular Choice shoes worn in 2014: 222 as part of the challenge.
  • Planes travelled on in 2014: 4
  • Cars driven in 2014: 3, plus one van.
  • Books read in 2014: 57
  • Blog posts written in 2014: 363
Anyone else keep tabs on strange things? I'd love to know what your best stat of the year 2014 was.

  1. I love that you send and receive proper letters! The sewn finger sounds painful and the spinning classes pretty epic - two a week?!

    1. Well, I tend to do three spin classes per week but have had a few weeks away or off because of illness so I think it's averaged out ot about 2 per week.

  2. Wow, that's almost one blog a day and a letter every 3! More than one dress a week!!! My stats would be rubbish. X

    1. I was pretty impressed with the letter writing, I thought I was way more behind than that with received vs sent.
      I'm sad about the blog posts as I'd planned for one per day. but with being poorly just before Xmas, I missed a couple of days.

  3. I don't keep records, seriously not organised enough for that!

    I am aiming on sending out more letters/cards/stuff this year though.

    1. I'm not sure what made me start the little tally chart for my letters. There's something so nice about sending and receiving pretty post.

  5. I LOVE that you made a graph. That's made me far too happy! Not as happy as a Venn diagram or a pie chart would have though ;)

    I'm going to stop talking now.

    1. Yeah, but I think at least I've learnt not to do that again..

  9. This is a great post and what an amazing list. You've certainly been busy. How on earth you've found time to do all of that I do not know. Well done! xx

  10. I love lists like this! The only thing I keep an accurate record of is clothing purchases, but these are far more interesting.
    I can't remember the last time I wrote or received a letter, how nice to have pen pals!
    I loved your Irregular Choice Challenge!

    1. Thanks, I think the Irregular Choice challenge was great as it gave me a focus on what to centre my outfits on.

  11. I love statistics, it's the scientist in me. You have a seriously impressive range of stats there, especially with your letter writing and blog post writing. How do you find the time? And I also wonder how many pen pals you have?

    1. Haha, thanks. I probably have about 15 penpals at the moment.

  12. Oh gosh no, I'm not much of a numbers person, so don't keep tabs. Plus my numbers for anything last year would have been terrible! Wow that's a lot of letters, a lot of dresses and grr at sewing machines (have un-fond memories of needles breaking, thread running out, stitched fingers and broken machines)!

    1. Yep, I'm always finding that when I'm in a rush to finish something, it's more likely to go wrong.
