Smile Re: People showing up unannounced?

I normally dont mind seeing people arrive whenever but when the lads were small
we had an open plan sitting room leading in from the porch and on arriving home from school everything was dropped anywhere and everywhere.. Clutter was obviouis to anyone who called/

I have a particular cousin who lives near and is quite fastidious about hosework.
She always arrived unexpectedly and strange to say I never gained access to HER hose
when i called to her like that. Car outside windows open but no door opened EVER!,

I still have visions of myself kicking the school bags out of the way when the door bell went!

Re: People showing up unannounced?

I was thinking about this thread after talking to my mom the other day. She commented that "everyone" stopped by that day so it was fitting that I called.

My Ps are both in their 70s and not in very good health. They don't go out much and absolutely love it when extended family stops by. No phone call is necessary. One sister makes it a point to stop by at least once a week, the other will stop by at least once by herself and once with her DH, five adult GC stop by at least once a month each, etc...

I would drop in on them without calling only because they truely don't mind.
