My favourite number is 8. I am now very good at recognising it wherever I go. I have spent the last week hunting it out in Gran-Gran’s house. And I’m pleased to report there are many – 27 to be precise (at last count): there are 2 on the freezer, one on the microwave, one on the cooker, 4 on the various telephones, 2 on the TV remotes, 6 on clocks dotted round the house, one on the swimming pool pump… To name just a few of them. When you start to look you find them everywhere. It’s a great hobby. I wholeheartedly recommend it. How many 8s do you have in your house?
