Before the clever clogs amongst you point it out, let me start of by saying that 'Hallowean' is not a typo or spelling error. It is deliberate and will become much clearer as you read on.
I had an invitation to attend a Hallowean party courtesy of my nephews and nieces in Wales, but as you may know I am back in Scotland. Instead I will have some sweets and some mini home -made pumpkin muffins for the 'trick and treating weans' here, should any of them come knocking on my door on this very wet evening. For those of you unfamiliar with the word 'wean'. In some parts of Scotland, children are referred to as 'wean'. It is derived from the Scottish word 'wee ane', where ane means one. In this blog post, a first ever I introduce you to some of my young nephews and nieces, there ages range from 5 to 10 - aka weans, so I think this post is appropriately titled.
Well I will not be able to attend their Halloween Party tonight, but I did get to see them carve out there pumpkin, something that they were all very proud of showing off! Here they are -well sort of...playing in the dark with their glowing pumpkin.
I like this picture, although my nephews are featured here 'cheek to cheek', it looks like I have a two -headed nephew.
I don't know if I will ever be blessed with little ones of my own, but the past week I have had fun spending time with them and seeing their different personalities: likes and dislikes . We made some smarty flapjacks topped with chocolate; got dirty by doing a bit of gardening: digging and weeding ; some window shopping; as well as attending a free food festival.
Here are a couple of photographs from their Halloween Party last year.
Below is a bottle of home-made potion requiring some spooky ingredients.
Enjoy your evening, whatever you are doing tonight.
