    I do like it, on my terms. Family is pretty much welcome whenever they please (apart from FIL who tends to keep odd hours and doesn't get that others don't) my girlfriends, whenever they please. Other people I prefer some notice. I made DP cancel his friend coming over the other weekend for a pop in visit to see our 'new' place (they've been living interstate for a year). We just happened to be in the middle of re-organising the study and DS's bedroom and the house was in chaos, so I didn't want visitors. Especially a couple pregnant with their first baby, I didn't want to terrify them

    I love it.
    What I don't love is people just 'dropping in' because they were 'out and about'.

    I don't give a $hit! You have inconvenienced me by assuming that this would suit me. My baby has just gotten to sleep and now I'm having my first coffee break of the day and some me time to get on BH and you decide to drop in!!!!!
    Seriously, F*** off and call next time!

    Rant over.

    ETA; totally love having people over, stay for the weekend, dinner parties and entertaining generally. It's a great excuse to get the house in order.

    I don't like it..... Our house is not suited to entertaining and is soooo small.....

    I'm hoping I'll be more comfortable entertaining once we move into our new house next year....

    Not really but I do like to go visit people. I feel like I'm not very good at entertaining and feel Like they are judging my house.

    I really like it - although do get anxious when it is new people. I'm terrified my house won't be clean or tidy enough or I won't do what they consider 'socially acceptable'. I'm getting better at 'meh' to that though.

    And use the thought of an unexpected drop in to motivate me to tidy a little bit each day!

    Generally no. Too tired for visitors these days. Plus never organised to have them either.

    I love it, so much easier than going out to a restaurant or cafe to catch up. I like to think the house is usually in decent condition so I just do a quick tidy if I get time. In laws live 5 minutes away, I love when mil drops in (really!) I get a bit of time to get things done while she plays with DS.
