I'm told that hardly anyone sits down at a table with their family now to have their main meal of the day.

Personally we always have at home, at uni I ate most of my meals on the sofa with it on my lap or the footstool, occasionally at the kitchen table but not very often really. For 2 years of uni we never had a kitchen table. I think it's good particularly when the kids are younger and probably don't see their parents for most of the day but it seems to be a less and less common assurance.

So do you eat round a table with whoever you live with every night, or some nights, or never and do you actually think it makes a difference or is important?

We sit down at a table and eat fresh, well cooked, non-processed food, while conducting a campaign of attrition with kids who try to smuggle meals to their rooms to eat while watching some dismal shite like Friends or some such on their miserable tellies.

But sometimes when the football is on of an evening I will refrain from cooking, and send instructions to the kitchen that my meal should be sent to me at the TV.

Inconsistency - the worst sin of parenting. Guilty as charged.

Relevant thread to me at the moment. I've recently moved into a new apartment. We furnished it. It's not massive by any stretch of the imagination. For 6 weeks I didn't have a dining table so I ate off the coffee table and watched TV. I have a dining table now and of course I still sit at the coffee table watching TV. I live alone, so what else am I supposed to do. I just have less dancing room now.

I don't have a kitchen table, or dining table. I have a kitchen counter with stools around it, breakfast nook style if you will. I'll eat at that whilst watching some TV or listening to music.

But when I lived with my mom and sister we would typically eat at least 2-3 meals a week at the family table. That was really nice.

I must say peterms, from the sounds of it you may be a bit hard on yourself as a parent man (or maybe I'm reading too much in between the lines and assuming something that isn't there!). However, you're feeding your kids healthy food and obliging them to eat together. That's better then 80% of most parents, sincerely. Keep it up.

My and her BF usually always eat at the table, I sometimes do if we're having a proper dinner 2/3 times a week, but I'm a fast eater so I'm usually gone in the matter of the minute. Usually take food upstairs into my bedroom, while my Dad owns a hotel and our house on the side only has 2 bedrooms a living room and a bathroom so i ALWAYS eat my dinner either on the couch watching TV or in my room on my desk while im on the computer.

Though just to be awkward, sometimes my main meal is actually the lunch I have in work. Followed by something small in the evening.

This is me too, lunch is sometimes the biggest meal I eat, at a table by myself in the cafeteria at work.

Breakfast at the kitchen counter nook, and same with dinner.

At home it tends to be a in the living room on our laps jobby. We did have a kitchen table and would use it a few times a week for a meal, but that went a while back.

At uni, if we've done a meal together kind of thing we'll sometimes eat it at the table. Most often we'll just be knocking up simple stuff and taking it upto our rooms, occasionally it'll be in one of our rooms all on our laps having a laugh.

Basically practically never round a table. At uni it's just not going to happen as the camaraderie of the house is laughable, theres 3 of us that are friends and thats about it. At home it's not practical.

I would like to eat my dinner off a naked woman, however that isn't really on the cards....

It would also depend on what you were having and how clean the woman was

Sashimi and sushi rolls off of Isla Fisher. Yes please.

I was thinking more like lasagne off Keeley Hazell. It would get messy...
