    Re: Sunday Lunch

    Surprised that folk still do Sunday lunch, we stopped doing that years ago.
    We tend to eat in the early evening gives you the whole day to enjoy.

    BTW grandpa complaining about 15 year old grandson's behaviour is not cool.
    Try to remember how you behaved at 15.

    Re: Sunday Lunch

    I can remember Sunday lunch with the family at that age, would have happily been anywhere else. Boring and being with mates or girlfriend much more appealing.

    Nowadays I love Sunday lunch with the family with wine and chat but it's definitely an age thing.

    In all honesty I think most 15yr old boys would be the same and so you grandson is not an exception.

    My reoccurring nightmare is that should I drop dead my wife will sell my golf gear based on the price I told her I paid....

    Re: Sunday Lunch

    Just highlighting something. You're bored with his football chat.... I wonder what part of the family chat he's bored with?

    They don't stay kids forever, and you shouldn't make them. Let him go with a smile, even though it hurts, and you're more likely to see him back when he grows up.

    Well I have to say you have got one normal grandson there. Woman and football. Two outta three is not bad. What else is there at 15 yr old. Me I would hammer the football talk whilst he is there and then talk old fogey stuff when he has gone. If you want him to stay longer introduce him to the third sin. Beer. He won't bother about women then.

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?
    I think you are. Maybe he doesn't like sitting around watching his parents and grandparents getting pissed?

    Family is a big thing for me; and as such I am on your side with this one pal!

    For me I'd suggest getting his GF around to welcome into the family. You never know she might enjoy it.

    Or she might dump his grandson for making her sit around watching the old people get pissed 😂
