So my little sister Jazmin is now fifteen which is terrifying – as if I ever needed reminding that I’m growing up ever faster!
I remember changing her nappy for crying out loud!
I remember reading her bedtime stories and watching countless episodes of Dora the Explorer.
I remember cutting all the hair off of her Barbie dolls once because she annoyed me.
I remember how she was very compliant in starring in my plays and wearing whatever weird costumes I asked her to.
I remember how I made her be the student and we would play ‘school’ where I’d give her pretend work to do.
Mostly I remember how I was so glad to have a sibling to play with.
She gave me a reason to act responsibly, encouraged my love of learning and taught me a great deal about patience and fairness . I had to share, take turns and set an example in what I did from there on out.
Basically, my little sister made me want to be somebody she looked up to.
For her birthday we went to Frankie & Benny’s in Bournemouth for dinner.
Me, Jaz, Mum, Nan and Josh had a great time joking around and stuffing our faces with some great food.
Jaz was pretty impressed with her Banana and Butterscotch Milkshake…
…and her new wheels for her longboard!
I got some lovely pictures of my beautiful Mama and Nanny… I hope I look as good as them when I’m their ages.
Josh and Jaz spent a lot of time goofing around…
I had a really tasty Grilled Chicken Pitta with barbecue sauce which came with fries, corn on the cob and coleslaw.
It was a really big portion for just £11.45 and everything was cooked well.
I even had dessert and I never normally opt for something sweet!
Mind you, it was Salted Caramel Cheesecake with vanilla ice cream so my hands were tied…
It’s a great family-friendly restaurant and the staff were really helpful. We didn’t have to wait long for our meals either, despite it being a busy Friday night. We also got 20% off our total bill because I used my NUS Extra card. I’d recommend Frankie and Benny’s Bournemouth for groups on a bit of a budget but would advise that some might find it too lively for a first date or a catch up with someone.
Have you been to a Frankie and Benny’s? Did you enjoy your visit?
