How visitor ready is your house?


#1

On average. Do you always keep it tidy, is the mess easy enough to hide in a hurry, or it a total tip unless you know someone is coming?

Feel free to discuss impromptu visits to your house


#2

it’s fine (in my humble) but my wife usually requires 3 or 4 hours preparation time if there is the slightest chance of someone crossing the threshold.


#3

Never. I am very much against people just dropping in. A weeks notice at least.

I’m kidding btw, but they need to be a bit accepting of the chaos.


#4

It’s lived in I suppose. A little clutter, but not overly messy


#5

my flat’s always pretty tidy.
cannot remember the last time someone just popped by without giving me a heads up first.


#6

alright 1950’s


#7

More or less comes with an open disclaimer of a slight descent into madness.

HOWEVER it’s come one, come all - at any time of day or night so probably more welcoming than most despite being a hovel.


#8

We run a pretty tight ship when it comes to living room and kitchen. We both hate clutter and mess so usually have a little tidy about each evening before bed and I like to potter around in the morning before work. Never any washing up left in the sink or anything like that. No way.

I also have a cleaner :blush:


#9

At the moment I wouldn’t answer the door to anyone. Plan to tidy up tonight though so it should be fine after that.

Swing between immaculate and oh my god there’s been squatters in here.


#10

oh I do my bit and keep things generally tidy and clean


#11

If I had my way 10/10.
Due to my wife’s hurricane like habits 5/10.


#12

Same here. 80% of the time it’s like a show home. The rest is embarrassingly bad.


#13

bombsite/ten

got m8s staying next weekend, we’ve already started tidying up


#14

Depends how fine the visitors are with clothes drying everywhere or needing put away.


#15

Never feel visitor ready. Ever. Even though it’s probably okay. I mean I never notice other people’s houses and think they should be cleaner/tidier.

It’s getting to be a problem.


#16

I think its a mess… most people who come round say its tidy… I think they’re just being polite :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#17

Also forgot to add that there is usually about 3 pairs of my knickers knocking about on the floor in the bedroom but no ones going in there.


#18

The spare room (yes, I know) is a horrorshow.

The rest is usually passable.

I have habit of using the stairs as a place for piles of paper


#19

But also they can fuck off because I hate having people in my fortress of solitude.

You are my kind of friend. I love a bit of mess. It makes me feel more comfortable. I remember my ex boyfriends mum was terrifyingly clean. I dropped a grain of rice* on the carpet once and he was like “quickly, pick it up before she sees”

*slight exaggeration… but honestly not much.
