I have a moral dilemma. Recently, my mum has started to ‘pop by’ to my house unannounced. She doesn’t see a problem with it, but I find it rude and inconsiderate.
Last week, mum ‘popped by’ unannounced. Twice. The first time I was out and about shopping when I received a text message indicating that she was at my front door. No warning, nothing.
I felt really weird about it. I had things on that morning but instead had to cancel because, well, she was there. I bundled the kids up and went home wondering if there was something she needed to urgently discuss. Nope, just stopped by to say hello.

The next time it happened was a few days later. I was out the back hanging washing on the line when I heard someone walking up the side path of my house. I turned around to see her there. I think for me this was a little worse because it wasn’t even like she was at the front door- she let herself in around the side gate, obviously feeling very comfortable entering our house.
It was about 9 am on a Sunday morning and for us, it was a busy one. Literally minutes before she arrived we had tradespeople over quoting for repairs to the house and I had about 10 minutes to dress the children, pack lunches and bags before I needed to get out the door for an appointment.
