WordPress Daily Prompt

So the daily prompt today was Love to Love You, link here:

What do you love most about yourself? And what do you love most about your favourite person? And are the two related?

The thing I love most about myself is definitely my cooking ability – it’s the only compliment I can manage to give myself, probably my only skill!  And my favourite person… has to be my mam.  Her cooking skills are definitely one of my favourite things about her, but at the same time, definitely not my favourite.  My favourite is probably just how thoughtful she is.  Or how much she manages to get done in one day – wish she’d passed that skill on to me.  But as my cooking definitely started at home, in the kitchen with mam, I suppose the two are certainly related….





I’m so behind on the posts… This one was about a month ago.  Uni is insanely busy and I’ve been super stressed and anxious but, after Tuesday, I’ve made it through the worst of the deadlines in time to start revision.  I’m even having a celebratory lunch and piercing on Wednesday!  Anyway, back to the sleepover – my two nieces and one of my nephews came down to Glasgow for a sleepover at my flat (mainly to give my sister and her husband a well deserved night off!).
We all went for a trip to Glasgow Science Centre on the day they arrived.  It’s expensive, and when they said the price I was pretty taken aback.  I can now definitely say that it’s worth it though – there’s so much to see and do, you can be there for hours and the children loved it!P1000587P1000589P1000593P1000595 P1000596P1000599P1000601P1000603P1000620P1000625P1000630 P1000631P1000633 P1000634P1000640

After the science centre, it was time to ditch the parents and head back to mine for fun!  First for arts and crafts… We drew pictures, made Halloween decorations, baked cakes and carved pumpkins.P1000645P1000648P1000652 P1000653 P1000654 P1000655P1000658

Then a certain little one had had too much fun and it was nap time.P1000659 P1000660

For tea, it was homemade pizzas – the easiest thing I could think of for all ages to help out with!P1000661P1000663 P1000664 P1000665P1000667 P1000668P1000672

After tea, we watched Chicken Run and ate popcorn.  The eldest two got a little bit of a late night, and much to Lewis’ surprise – they could eat on the couch!  No rules in this house!  It was the first thing he told my sister and her husband when they came to collect them: “You can eat on the couch here!”P1000678P1000681

In the morning, we watched another film – Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – then Michelle and Scot came round for a quick cuppa before their drive back up to Aberdeen.  It was such a cute day and so good to see them.  I miss them so much, and don’t get to see them and Lukas, my other nephew, nearly enough.P1000690 P1000691 P1000692Anyway, back to the uni grind and presentation practicing.   Only remembered to post this at all because of Lynn’s blog. Thankfully, it won’t be as long until I see the family again because everyone is going home for Christmas! So exciting!
