I like to think we offer a warm welcome to our guests should anyone visit.
There is always the offer of a cup of tea to friends and workmen alike, and cake or biscuits if I have any (doubtful at the moment, though if I know someone’s coming, then cake would be made).
Sometimes when we have visited people, the welcome has been chilly or just not forthcoming at all! I think the shortest visit I had to a friend was long enough to have a cup of tea and wash up my cup. I haven’t seen them since, and that’s over thirty years ago.
