    Sunday Lunch

    Most Sundays I come home to a fab Sunday lunch made by my wife. Our small family are all there. Son, new D-I-L and two grand kids and my mum. Wine doth flow and we have a great time. Thing is our eldest GK is 15, and he has taken to leaving us after a couple of hours. This is starting to get on me wick a bit. It seems like he's just popping in for a re-fuel, after his footie match in the morning, then can't get away fast enough. His conversation is extremely limited, football, football, football and football. I'm sure this would widen if he joined in. He's got a girlfriend, and this is where he is zooming off to. I think he should see her on Saturday and then join us for the Sunday afternoon. Lordy it's only 2pm until 6pm

    Am I being a horrible Grandad?

    Think back, and ask yourself where you'd rather have been?

    With a girlfriend or the old gits?

    I know what I'd have wanted when I was 15!

    Agreed. But if he saw his GF on Saturday, isn't that enough?

    We use to eat in the evening so I'd play golf or football and we'd all be back by the afternoon. That would tie in with the old man coming back via the pub and then dozing away until dinner was on the table to the disgust of my mother on a weekly basis

    Google "hormones", that might explain it

    LOL I've got the wife watching this with me, It was her suggestion I put this on. She's just given me a wry look after reading this post.

    I would say 99% of 15 year olds are the same when they get a bird.
    It's nothing personal.

    If his parents are with you for a few hours he knows he's got their house to himself 😳

    If I was 15 I know where I'd be. At least he's making the effort to spend a couple of hours getting his energy back before his afternoon "exercise" 😉
