Chilling with my brother

One of the benefits of having a 26-year-old sister in full time employment must be having her take you out for all-expenses paid evenings. Myles is a very lucky kid! I hadn't seen him for a while, so decided to treat him to a meal and a trip to the cinema. He was adamant that we'd see 22 Jump Street, but I wanted to see The Fault in our Stars. Being a teenage boy, he was having none of that!

We decided to be a little different and visit Wagamama. I'd only been once, about 4 years ago and it was a total disaster. I couldn't use chopsticks, I ordered chicken noodle soup and let's just say, the soup went everywhere. It was pretty embarrassing and put me off for a while. 

Myles is clearly a master in the use of chopsticks.

That's quite some technique he's got going on! 
We started with a side order of chilli squid. Myles is a notoriously fussy eater (he pretty much ate nothing but plain pasta and chicken nuggets for a good 5 years), so it was amazing that he not only tried the squid, but enjoyed it too. 

We both had the chicken yaki soba. It was delicious, if a little heavy on the ginger. The plates were huge too, so we both had to leave a sizeable chunk uneaten. Delicious though!

Myles is a very fashion-conscious kid. I'm not sure if I totally get his style, but I love that he has the confidence to express himself in such bold prints. Style icon in the making! 

He's so tall now and it's freaking me out. Nobody here is crouching down or standing on a box: He's 14 and rapidly approaching 6ft! (This photo was only taken 9 months ago! What? How?) 
 He was clearly very taken with the idea of seeing The Fault in our Stars. 

Unfortunately for Myles, Big Sister perks include getting the final say in everything, so we went to go and see it. Yes, I cried. It was better than I thought it would be, actually and stayed very true to the novel. In fact, the things that annoyed me when I reviewed the book, such as the verbose nature of these teenagers, were played down in the film. 
We had a bit of spare time before the film started, so we headed down to the arcade and played a couple of games, including this Speed of Light reaction game. 
 We may have cheated and both joined in to press as many of the buttons as possible. 
Ok, cheating is bad, but look at all the tickets we won! Look how happy I was! That makes it worth it, right?

    I've never been to Wagamamas but I really want to, I love Yo! Sushi.

    I'm back at home for the summer and I'm loving spending time with my sister and brother - just walks along the canal are brilliant!
