What a lovely compliment to Mel that so many of us want to participate ;-)
Now,hopefully you have had a nice visit with Deb and have linked from her to me ..
So on to the reason you are here.We are here to celebrate the number ♥  9  
Now let me tell you a few random silly (and some may say spooky) facts about John Lennon and the number 9 
If you are a Beatles fan you will probably know these - if not you might just find them interesting.....

John Lennon's lucky number was 9. Everything in his life revolved around the number 9. He was born on October 9th, met Yoko Ono on November 9th . His son was also born on the ninth.
 When he was shot, on December, 8th 1980, it was already December 9th in his hometown of Liverpool, England. He was pronounced dead at 11:07. Add those numbers up: 1+1+7=9.
 Liverpool has nine letters

John Ono Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon's combined names contain nine O's
 John's elementary school bus number happened to be 72. 7 + 2 = 9  
 He even lived in apartment 72 in New York. Yet another 9.
 McCartney, his best friend through most of his life, is spelled with 9 letters.
Coincidence? maybe but I thought it was interesting and fun!

 I hope you enjoyed that little insight into some facts including the number 9 - and here are a couple of projects I made specially for this blog hop - a configurations box - yep it's got nine spaces and a layout with nine little photos of yours truly through the ages - makes me sound prehistoric

So without further ado, next up is someone whose blog I know you all love - and if you've not been before - you will love it and go back for more !

Over to you -Sian
