A near neighbour is constantly turning up, unannounced, and expects to be invited in and entertained for hours. I've now stopped letting her into my house but she keeps me talking for ages on the driveway/doorstep. She's not lonely, lives with her family and has many outside interests.
I'm a widow and she perhaps thinks I'm the one who needs her company? She moans about everything and, quite frankly, drags me down. I've suggested that I go to her house for a cuppa on a designated day, but she's having none of that!
Short of being rude, which I don't want to be, she doesn't take my hints. Any ideas?
Do I need to like them all? - son's wives
Telling a child 'no' - parenting
She thinks he has a problem - alcohol
