    Surely its only off lap if your obsessed with TV.
    Damn straight i am. The missus is of the less uncouth variety (more couth? couth?) and has a strong family sentiment with the wish to dine together and talk through happenings of the day. No chance, Meade's Ballita. I've got the telly gently roaring away and i intend to do little but escape and sometimes chortle.
    And i don't use trays.

      Always eat at a table. Normally kitchen or garden table in summer but dining room if entertaining. (Although there is a TV on the kitchen wall).

      I think it was a habit that started when we had kids that we always sat down to dinner together and has remained after they left home.

      Very occasional pizza in lounge watching a movie, but kids were never allowed to eat in bedrooms.

      I was in a conversation recently where someone reckoned it was a bit common and definitely working class to eat ones tea/dinner from a tray on their laps. Got me thinking because I mostly do although we have a perfectly good dining room table which hardly ever gets used apart from Xmas.
      So do you ? and is it a working class thing.

      I can understand if you have young kids sitting up at the table though.

      So are you a middle class social climber or the scum of the earth.
      You’re certainly working class, and northern, if you call dinner “tea”

      I don't have a dining room and the kitchen is too small for a table so the coffee table in front of the TV works fine!

      I would guess we eat at the table four or five nights a week, give or take - generally if the three of us are eating at the same time - the busy afternoon/evening schedule of a nine-year old means that occasionally the lad needs to eat before us.

      The other exception is weekends which brings Fun Food Friday - burgers & fries or pizza on laps in front of a Family Film. Fridays are really all about the Fs.

      I think it's a good thing to all sit at the table for half an hour or so every day, with no other distractions going on.

      Switch burgers to Frankfurters to keep those F's flowing!

      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      You’ll notice I did say tea/dinner for the next ambiguous question HT.

      No tray MB ? I’m with you though on the other stuff. I want the 6 or 6-30 news on as I’m scoffing and my boy can take his dinner to his room if he so wishes. He collects crockery as a hobby. I will not tho sit in the same room as my wife if she insists on catching up on one of ‘her programmes’ which will be all collagen and botox.
      I need my news. It’s important that if there has been a disaster somewhere I can have it confirmed that there were no Britons involved.

      And when the kids are sleeping the dreams of the innocent you can have some fellatio to keep the F themed night going.
