    Lol at all the dog posts! I don't like indoor pets also the dirty toilet and lack of soap & clean towel in the bathroom. I also hate those homes where you don't really want to put your crawling baby down on the floor. Houses where people smoke

    I used to visit a single dads house with my son, his toilet and bathroom were so disgustingly smelly of urine, poo and mould and were never very cleaned, I was pregnant at the time and had to use them. And his kids never flush and there as always a poo left in there!!!

    I also have this strange friend that I adore but she comes over and brings a block of chocolate with her everytime and everytime we eat almost all of it but maybe 3 rows and every time she will take it home with her, she does it with bread or anything like that really, that is REALLY odd. Once she made food for my baby shower and there was some left so she took it all home for the husband even though I said I would eat it!

    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??
    Yeah, that's us too. The toys have a place - the play room (and that room looks like a bomb has hit it lol)
    But no, we just clean as we go, so the house never gets untidy. Everything has a place, so the house isn't cluttered.
    It doesn't mean it's not lived in or homely.

    I don't want to feel like I have to make my house seem less tidy when I have visitors coming. I'm proud of my house and so it reflects in the way I keep it.

    im not a fan of taking my shoes off at someone else's house unless of course they are wet or dirty.
    i don't really expect anyone to do it at my house either

    A really clean house doesn't bother me at all. It's when people get all crazy about the kids touching/sitting/ moving whatsoever lol. My SIL has the showroom house with the expensive furniture and her and her husband just follow the children of the family around the whole visit freaking out Ok I get they paid 6k for their lounge but geez.... relax a little.

    I cant stand visiting when people smoke inside, when the floor clearly needs vacumming and when they have dogs inside. People it doesnt matter how clean your house is and how clean your dog is you can still smell it!

    Me too!

    Most stuff doesn't bother me at others homes ... though if they have pet reptiles I'm a bit jumpy.

    I only do that for the entertainment system, but our girls already know not to touch. Usually it would be in the theatre room but we don't have one in this house so it's in the general living area. The rest is pretty much go for gold.

    When people smoke inside, or the house smells like smoke.
    When there's no towel to dry your hands on in the bathroo
    m - except for ones people obviously use for showers.
    That's all I can think of.

    As for all the dog-related co
    mments, our dog is a part of the family. I always keep the dog outside if I know a visitor doesn't like dogs, if I don't know them well, or if they're wearing something (eg. good work clothes) that they obviously wouldn't want dog hair on...but otherwise I think it's a lot like having kids around. Some people may not like it - that's fine - but I'm not going to shut away the dog/kids in my own home. If people don't like it, then they don't have to visit.
