    Last time we had a family meal was when I was like 8. I eat in front of my laptop or sometimes on my own at the table while thinking about my future and how much I'll owe after uni. Forever a loan.

    Same, always at the table, but always with the tv on too. Covers up the awkward chewing/ saliva sounds!

    we usually eat around the dinner table on sundays and a couple of times during the week. On the others days i'll eat in front of the tv / computer.

    Always at the table, no TV. Sundays having my gran over.

    I find families that eat in front of the TV sad, you have a great time when you are all together to discuss your day, things coming up, little achievements, etc, but instead you would all prefer to see who is going to win the Xfactor. People wonder why family life is deteriorating, then don't spend time together when they have the chance, sitting with your family is so boring you need a flickering screen to keep yourself awake.

    When I lived with my parents I ate on my own in front of the computer. We all ate at different times due to work...and we didn't even have a table big enough for us all to sit around so it would've been a bit squashed. Now I live with my boyfriend, we don't have a table at all - we eat at my desk while watching something on the computer. The only time I sit at a table to eat is if I go to my dad's for Sunday dinner. Or a restaurant, obviously!

    Always on the table on a Sunday and the rest of the week it depends on what we're having/if everyone's having the same or if we're having different dinners.
