My experience exactly. The older lady next door gets annoyed at me that I don’t stop over. She’s finally figured out that I need an invite every time. As for working in pajamas and resenting the fact you have to put pants on just because a neighbour might come over- yep!!! I don’t think I’ll ever get used to that!
