I love having company over. For a day, a couple of days, a week (I draw the line at any longer than that). But I must confess, I am always so glad to have my space back.
We’ve just had friends, a couple and their 2 year old son, visit from o/s for 8 days. Our little unit is perfect for the 3 of us, but as soon as you add more people to that (and a few suitcases!) things get really cramped. I’ve been looking at 4 bedroom rentals for the last few days, hoping that by the next time we have guests, we’ll be in a bigger place!
I find it hard enough to live in a small place with the 2 people I love the most, so add others into the mix, and it can be challenging. I think I was starting to get “over it”. And in saying that, our guests were probably the best you could hope for – they did a grocery shop, cooked meals (yummy ones!), and even washed their sheets and pillow cases this morning before they left! Of course now that they’re gone, it is very quiet, and looks very bare around here. And I think Nick is going to miss having a little buddy around to play with when he wakes up in the morning. But order has been restored, I finally have my office back, which means I am back to blogging! Now I just need the inspiration…
How do you go having visitors staying longer than 3 days?
