Just that really. Couple of girlfriends coming over tonight before we go out. I have very light cream/beige carpet which is quite new. My family always take their shoes off as this is how we have been bought up. As does my son.
Do you ask people to remove their outdoor shoes before treading on your nice clean carpet?
I think the shoes-on crowd seem to be particularly vocal on Mumsnet. Not necesserily because there are more of them, but they seem to dominate that particular forum.
