Daily Mail: Do YOU ask guests to take their shoes off when they arrive at your house? One mother says visitors who don't make her ‘blood boil’ – but others insist it’s ‘common’

A mother who insists upon guests removing their shoes when they visit her house has sparked a furious debate online.

The woman told Mumsnet it makes her 'blood boil' when her in-laws walk through her house in their outdoor shoes - but some women said asking guests to take them off was 'common' or 'suburban'.


Mumsnet is such a warzone.

Hygge



Given the popularity of the Hygge fad among the British middle class, it is perhaps surprising I haven't mentioned this before. Hygge is the Danish culture of coziness. It's all about woolly jumpers, warm fires and scented candles. It seems to be taking Britain by storm.

It's worth bearing in mind that in Denmark, people generally don't wear shoes indoors. Stomping around your house in shoes is very un-Hygge. Woolly socks are very essential to Hygge.
