Mels Alpha-numeric Blog Hop!!

Hello & welcome to my part of the blog hop organised by the marvelous Mel at I Speak Melsh. You should have reached me via Stacey but if you happened here by chance please feel free to start at Mels blog by clicking her link & then follow the blogs in order or just carry on to the next blog from here :) The theme for this hop is Alpha-numeric. It started as just an alphabetical theme but I think Mel underestimated her fans/followers so she had to expand to numbers!! I have been allocated the number 2 .... not an exciting number like 7 or 13 is it? But after giving it some thought I realised how important this little number is in our lives. We live in a (mostly) symetrical world. Where would we be without a pair of hands or eyes or legs? Goodness we would be without pairs of shoes!! From pairs we can go to twins. My aunty had 2 sets of twins - one set in each marriage! 2 peas in a pod! Terrible picture ...... sorry Aunty but its the only one I have! This is c1965 with her first twins - I still can't tell the difference between them 40+ years later! My aunts other twins were born about 10 years later, girls again but this time non-identical. They were 2 of my 4 bridesmaids in 1989 :) Another terrible photo but I didn't keep many. The twins are the first two to my right. Wikipedia has a wealth of information on the number two. For example it is the first & smallest prime number and the only even one. Other references of course can be made to 2nd best, 2nd marriage, 2 halves, 2 hearts beat as one, put two & two together, 2 o'clock, etc etc! But I think I will end with this photo of the Twin Towers. Your next hop on our journey is to Helena's Creative Maven

If you have any problems with any of the links (we are all over the world so some time zones and some blogging platforms auto-posts may throw a spanner in the works) please go back to Mels where she has a full list of all the participants


Thankyou for reading my blog :) Happy hopping!! x

  5. Fabby post :-) Being a geeky mathematician I particularly love 2 for being the smallest and only even prime number, so it was great to see that fact here! Thanks so much for joining my hop xx

  19. I was going to say that 2 is a very special prime number - so FAR superior to 7 or 13 - but you'd spotted that! Too late :D
