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!
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.
Then a certain little one had had too much fun and it was nap time.
For tea, it was homemade pizzas – the easiest thing I could think of for all ages to help out with!
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!”
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. Anyway, 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!
