A woman took to social media to share her embarrassment after unexpected guests arrived at her home on a day when the house was not in a great shape. A mother-of-two started a discussion on parenting on the social media forum Mumsnet after she couldn’t sleep thinking about the incident.
She posted: “We were having a really slobby day yesterday. It was mid-afternoon and we were all in our pajamas.
“There was leftover lunch in various places (thanks to my two and four-year-olds), crumbs all over the floor, and piles of washing everywhere.
“This is actually quite unusual for me, I’m usually on top of things but it had been a tiring week and my husband hasn’t been well, so I’ve been managing by myself a lot.”
She went on ahead and stated how she was caught off guard after her friends whom they hadn’t seen for ages made a surprise visit to the house.
She said: “Then there is a knock on the door; friends who we hadn’t seen for ages and had just been passing by. Caught off guard, I enthusiastically welcomed them in.
“It’s now 4am and I can’t sleep because I’m so embarrassed about the state the house was in.
“I feel like I never want to see them again!
“Not sure why I’m posting this, perhaps someone can make me feel better?? Gah!”

The thread which has over 240 replies saw many social media users echoing her sentiments.
One of the users wrote: “Oh no that’s awful. I’d have said we’re all unwell sorry I can’t invite you in. I don’t think it’s very nice dropping in on people.
“Happened to me years ago at Christmas. Ds2 was a newborn. Well to do acquaintances turned up with a daft gift for us. House was a tip and I was knackered. I’ve never forgiven them.
“Don’t see them anyway, thank goodness.”
Another one wrote: “That sounds like a typical Saturday to me! In this day of technology they should have called or messaged you first.
“I think it’s rude to turn up unannounced. I’m sure they didn’t notice/care anyway and were just happy to see you.”
