It may just be me, but I’m not very good with visitors turning up unannsounced.
It’s not that my house is dirty or messy, but because I can’t handle my plans going awry!
Okay, I lied.
It’s because I can’t bear the possibility that someone might see my home looking less than perfect.
I feel as though I need to portray this image of perfect wife and mother and if this doesn’t happen, I get somewhat anxious.
If friends are due, I’ll spend the day cleaning and tidying.
If my mother in law is due, I’ll spend the day cleaning and firmly close doors to rooms where she’s uninvited.
If my Mum is due, I spend the week prepping every room and scrub the toilets until I could drink from them.
There is my clean, there is friend clean. Mother clean is a whole different level.
Is this just me?
