Think yourself lucky, Mici. My friend Lorraine visited for a couple of days this week and I was glad when she left!
She really is a good friend and I always like to see her, but she causes chaos whenever she visits and it takes me ages to recover. For example, after vacuuming the flat and washing the kitchen floor, within half an hour of arrival, she had managed to get laundry powder all over the kitchen floor and trampled it out into the hall carpet.
I think the world of her, but can only take small doses!
This is something I tell her regularly.
She also managed to spill coffee over my bedroom carpet and break my comb to bits trying to untangle her hair.
