09 September 2009

To the nines ....


The day itself falls on a Wednesday and both Wednesday & September have 9 letters. The last of the single-digits dates for quite a while -- 92 years to be precise. It represents the last set of repeating, single-digit dates for almost a century (until January 1, 2101) or a millennium (January 1, 3001) depending on how it is counted. According to numerologists, as the final numeral, the number nine holds special rank, and is associated with forgiveness, compassion, and success on the positive side as well as arrogance and self-righteousness on the negative.

But 09/09/09 was significant for another reason. It was Christopher's 11th birthday and he thought it was pretty special celebrating his big day in this way. He told me it would have been even better had be been 9 on the 09/09/09 but turning 11 would just have to do.

At 09:09:09 am I was sitting at this computer checking my emails. Not earth shattering I know but that can't be helped. Both children were at school.

At 09:09:09 pm we were eating celebratory birthday KFC which we had picked up on the way home after seeing the school musical production of "Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat" at school.
Christopher was in two class items as well as performing with the drum circle.
