 'I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right' are the words this week. I started off with a Distress inked background and I used a number stencil on top. Barbara has been having an ongoing discussion with her friend Margaret about the best way to help their five year old children cope with numbers at school. Ever since the children had been toddlers they had both taught them how to count from one upwards with the use of games and story books. Now they had both started school the adding up and taking away was the next step. Margaret had been happy to just keep on with the games and to start with the easy ones. Barbara was all for getting stuck in with the pencil and paper and actually giving them little sums to do, as this way they would get used to writing the numbers down and thinking about it more, she thought playing games at that age was silly. so they sat down with a cup of tea and started to discuss it. Eventually this turned into an argument and before it became too heated Barbara said "I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right. at this point they agreed to differ.

 The words this week are 'Sorry I'm late, I didn't want to come' Penny was having a party and had invited all her friends including her cousin Angela. Angela had known about this party for a while and knew exactly what form it was going to take. Apparently it was all about numbers. Everyone was given a puzzle which resulted in a number that corresponded to another one in the room. Once you had worked out your number you had to take a certain number away from it, and that ended up with your partner for the evening. Of course having found out the number you then needed to find the person whose number that was, and this had to be done quietly, no shouting out 'come here number ? that would be too easy'. Angela thought this was all bordering on crazy but felt she had to turn up. When Angela turned up late at her cousins flat and saw the crowds of people there, she so wanted to go home. Her cousin greeted her with that, trust you to be late look. It was no good as soon as Angela stepped into the hall, she said "Sorry I'm late, I didn't want to come"

The words this week are 'I'm allergic to stupidity - I break out in sarcasm' Enid and Beryl are identical twins, but like to dress differently now they have left childhood behind and their mum insisting they dress alike. Enid is far less prim and proper than her sister who doesn't put a step wrong. Enid has suggested to Beryl that they go on an adventure holiday for single people to some far away place that Beryl had never heard of. 

“Why would I want to do that, we are far too old to go gadavanting off to foreign places where we don’t know anyone and don’t speak the language. Have you completely lost the plot” said Beryl. 

“ I thought it was a good idea, we might meet some nice people, we might even find a male friend” said Enid.   

“ What makes you think I want a male friend at my age, I have managed very nicely without one so far, and I would rather go somewhere nice in this country. I know age is just a number, but I think you are being stupid, and I am allergic to stupidity - I break out in sarcasm” said Beryl, hoping that is the end of that conversation. In actual fact she was saving up for a new car, and didn’t want to go on holiday this year.

The saying this week is 'I miss you like an idiot misses the point' Adam had just come home on leave from a tour of duty with the RAF and could hardly wait to see his girlfriend Liz. He had been rather remiss in not writing to her or sending emails or text messages, but didn't think that would be a problem. Obviously Adam didn't know women very well as he found out as soon as he arrived at Liz's flat. "Hi Liz, great to see you" Adam said. He had hardly come through the front door and the atmosphere was not good. Having not said a word Liz turned her back on him. Adam then went from bad to worse as he next words were " I bet you missed me" Liz was really annoyed by now and the only thing she could utter was " I miss you like an idiot misses the point. Adan realised he had made a huge mistake and thought the best way was to leave and let a few days go by before trying again.

 The theme on Art Journal Journey this month is 'All about numbers' set by Matilde of Craftowanie.

 The saying for this week is 'Did you have to eat the whole bowl of stupid'  Sophie is a very bright little girl and wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She thought it would be a good idea to get some practice in before she really made up her mind. Her brother Eric is not so bright and his number work was awful, so who better to practice on than Eric. Sophie had put measurements on the skirting board of his room and installed a blackboard on which she had written some plus and minus sums. Apart from one that was right Eric had managed to get all the others wrong. Sophia was getting very frustrated with him as he seemed unable to concentrate, too busy playing with his toy dinosaur. "Come on Eric, lets rub those out and start again" Sophie said " No" said Eric, "I want to play" "You will need to know how to do these at school Eric" "I don't care" said Eric. Sophie had had enough so before she left his room she said " Did you have to eat the whole bowl of stupid ?                                                                                                               I am linking this to Art Journal Journey where the theme set by Matilde from craftowanie  for this month is All about numbers.
