Entertaining guests over the silly season is unavoidable for some. While the experience can be a positive one, it's also exhausting.
Despite your hard work, there’s one word that can see it all go to waste: sorry.
According to Apartment Therapy, “Merely uttering one little word, you could derail all the positive, beautiful attributes of your home in the eyes of your guests."
Sure, you might not have had time to do the dishes, but apologising for it will only draw attention to the mess in the sink.
So the next time you have visitors, skip the apologies and simply enjoy the time spent with friends and family.
