My parents have now moved into their apartment down south. I am now the sole caretaker of the house until it sells.
I want to keep the place really clean, so while I am in charge here, shoes come off at the door.
However, my parents will be back from time to time and it is still their house, so technically this is not a proper shoe-less household. I may be getting a lodger soon and I hope she will be agreeable about removing her shoes.
Of course, how many visitors I get depends on how many I invite.
I am holding an "housewarming-up party" soon. I mentioned below that I stated 'Shoes off' on the invitations.
