    Default Do you enjoy having visitors over? if not, why not?

    If you don't enjoy it, why is that?

    I hate it! My sil is always whinging she feels unwelcome in her own brothers house because I never invite her over. I just don't like having ppl here. I feel a pressure to clean and tidy everything and get dressed up and put make up on. It's just too much effort. I'd rather go out to see ppl.

    Yes, I love to have people over, either friends or family. I find it a much better way to catch up than at a restaurant or cafe. I like to keep it casual though and make sure that people are comfortable enough to help themselves to a drink or a cup of tea.

    I'm not keen to be honest, normally because people don't know when to leave 😁 I do have people over for play dates and coffee but it's got to be in the morning otherwise I work myself up just thinking about it. I must add though I don't have any family near and so it might be different if I did.

    Yes & no, it depends who & for how long.

    I'm not a fan of people staying over for more than a night.

    If it's a day visit I am usually ok. Especially if we get along! lol

    I love it.

    I have never been someone to need a lot of my own time/space though.

    No, not really. I live a looooong way away from all of my family and friends. I don't like the fact that everyone has to spend so much time travelling to visit me - I usually feel like I haven't been worth the trip.

    Yes if it's pre arranged- I hate drop ins - mainly as I like to be organized, have food/drinks ready and make sure DS is well rested!
