Thank you for leaving the room and house tidy when you left. I certainly appreciated that, gave you lots of space and freedom to achieve what you needed to achieve in the two weeks.
Yes Chris, we had a less than comfortable experience during the second week of your stay. Unfortunately, you tend to dominate shared spaces from very early in the morning (5:30am and 6am at times) and I found this very confronting and uncomfortable, to be questioned about my movements from the moment I came downstairs. I've not had a guest sitting on my couch from 6am, staring into space or needing to engage in intense conversations ( as is your manner) while I'm walking out of the house (happened a few times), busy working in the garden and house, trying to watch TV or doing my own thing.
In the beginning, I tried to be polite, however, you also admit to being very repetitive and do not seem to read social cues well.
The repetitive nature of you over talking and processing the minute things things, I found very stressful. You admit to this, and despite raising this a few times, it seems you a only remember this for the moment. This could be why I was so exhausted with having the same conversations each day - long after you had resolved your issues.
I happily share my home and space, and have with many guests. However, I haven't had this kind of experience before. Many guests are working, out in the world, exploring the city and do spend some of their times in their rooms. As you're entitled to utilise the shared spaces, I ended up withdrawing or retreating to my bedroom for quiet, space and privacy when I was home. It's fine that I do that - as this is the ONLY space that is completely private to me.
I declined your request to extend your stay another few days to a week (and perhaps over Easter) because I told you - I needed space over this time. I'm glad you were able to find alternative accommodation that suited your needs before moving into your own space.
