Please tell me I want to go for a bath.

Half of them are washing up and the other half embroidering silken wisteria on freshly ironed tea towels?

Serving you spiked drinks?

FlibberdeGibbet Thu 03-Jan-13 21:22:44

Close Nutella - they contemplated playing monopoly, but settled on Articulate - and have now started playing PROPER OLD FASHIONED games - charades; 20 questions.

They may move onto cakes Confusion, they're looking at a baking book now!

Tis a delight to listen to - take note Daily Fail, teens can be a delight!

Behaving, in the nicest possible way, like a bunch of 8 year olds?

(That's what DD and her two BFs are like, totally different to very teenage 11 yo DD2 and her friends).

FlibberdeGibbet Thu 03-Jan-13 21:24:09

I'll leave a pile of freshly ironed tea towels and some embroidery silks out just in case.... liking the pom pom idea as well!

Alas no washing up!

Teens are great fun. One of dd's friends came round the other day and they both started fiddling with a telescope and talking about star charts.

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 21:25:09

I agree startail - dd was a teenager when she was 11/12 (very tiresome) - since she has been a proper teenager she has been brilliant.

I blame High School Musical.

I had a group of 18 year old boys in the house who came over with the express purpose of playing a board game. From what I could hear which was quite a lot as they were loud they were having a great time. They were playing Risk.

My three teen/young adult DC's play cards together quite often.

I love teenagers grin. I was going to guess Monopoly too.

StressedoutMotherofTeens Thu 03-Jan-13 21:43:24

Brilliant! smile

How lovely, this gives me hope that my 'teenage' 5 and 4yo may be lovely at a later age!

That's lovey! I agree lots of teens are can be great. I took 10 to York for a day and never had such fun.

Monopoly was my guess too. My dd (14) and her friend regularly have mammoth monopoly sessions. Makes me smile

I was going to guess Twister, baking or watching Disney films.
Teens can be fantastic, my children and their friends are a consistent pleasure to have in the house.

TheNebulousBoojum Fri 04-Jan-13 08:08:52

Oh, and Miyusaki films are also a favourite.

I came home to find DS 17 and his girlfriend playing disney monopoly last night. They are very competative grin
My dd 15 is off for a sleepover tomorrow night which involves a murder/mystery game.
Teens are lovely

Playing with a younger siblings Barbie collection

My teen son goes round to his mates houses to play board games, they're very competitive. He took some back to uni too.

I love watching my ds 17 and my mum playing rummy together.
