    *Note to self - Start keeping Arthur outside every time I have visitors. He will whine and bark at the door the entire time, but I admit that he stinks, so it is probably for the best!*

    Here Arthur is rolling around in sh!t!

    On another note; I'm quite private about my home so I don't really like visitors - period. Funnily enough, when they do appear I quite enjoy their company. (Unless it is MIL)

    That it looks like they have been up all night and morning sprousing up the house, Polishing the floor boards, dusting the lamp shades - it looks that rediculously clean. Fresh flowers and clean dry dishes neatly piled up on the dish rack for the "not too perfect" look about the place, so it's not too obvious they are ocd about cleaning for visitors, or in my case a play date. ffs.

    I hate overly clean homes that dont look lived in. Every toy has a spot and the baby just sits there like an ornament.

    The things I hate are dirty towels in the bathroom so I don't know what to dry my hands on, dirty cups or plates, not being offered a drink (I find this happens quite regularly), hair on the bathroom sink and dog hairs on the couch (don't mind dogs around as long as they are clean).

    Ummmm... That's my home lol Except I do have toys all over the floor. But I love a clean home. Mess and clutter makes me uncomfortable and nervous.

    See, I'd love to visit - I'd feel welcome by ALL of the family, including one of the most important ones - the furred family.

    Maybe they haven't been up all night?? Maybe they just like to keep their place clean and organised?? I'm sure the dishes aren't an intentional strategy to make the place look not perfect.

    A clean house can absolutely be lived in. Sounds to me like they are just on the ball with keeping on top of things.

    It's a shame the baby doesn't play with any toys though. I'm all for toys having a place (in my case shoved in no order into a toy box that looks clean and tidy from the outside). But when we are playing or cooking or doing arts and crafts there's guaranteed to be chaos. It just gets cleaned up afterwards.

    Saying a clean house isn't lived in is like saying washed clothes aren't worn to me. They are ... Just things get tidied up after. I'm not sure why mess is a sign of living in a home?? If a family eats, plays, sleeps, cooks, entertains and loves in a home and then cleans up - surely it's still lived in right??

    This to! How can you dry your hands if there's no towel. Are you supposed to fling water everywhere? :lol:

    Nawww MIM he is soooper cute *melts*
    I had my friends dog in mind, he's a BIG thing, I can remember the breed but he's like a St Bernard but brown and he was an undisciplined puppy at the time. My friend's DH's attitude was '*I* didn't invite you over, too bad if your kids are scared' and he would let the dog in, who of course was totally excited and would jump all over everyone including my (then) 1 & 2yo babies. TBH it was totally the DH's attitude that peeved me off, not the dog!

    Yup, if they have no soap, how do *they* wash their hands??!!

Why she couldn't put her cats away before we came over is something I'll never understand and I also don't know why she spent the next few hours trying desperately to let them back out again....if you want your cats out, don't invite us over. I'm sure the cats were fine for a couple of hours with their food, litter, water and a couple of toys in one room.
    Ah good so I'm not the only one experienced this! I get that people love their pets and its *their* house as well as their owners... but just as I would never let a kid of mine scare a visiting child, I would keep 'scarey' pets away from a scared child. To this day, the house i have in mind with the big dog, i leave as soon as the man of the house comes home, i feel so bleurgh about it. Ah well!
