While I love to dine out (no food preparation or cleaning up afterwards = bliss), dining in is preferred.
Whether it’s just the family or a table full of friends, it’s a chance to relax and catch up on the day (or the week) that was.
It’s chatter and banter and laughter.
It’s elbows on the table and boys (big and small) giggling at fart jokes.
It’s mums delegating the cleaning up, and more chatter and banter and laughter as the washing up is done.
Because that’s what dining in is all about…
