Ok so this afternoon I got a text back after I sent mine yesterday. Totally ignored everything I said and was texting about something else entirely. sigh.

You never know, she may have taken it on board but feels too awkward to respond.  Just see how things pan out re if you get any more unsolicited visits or offers to visit.

I agree. That was a lengthy text you sent. I'd leave it for now.
edit  - you must make people feel welcome which is a lovely attribute. :)

Well it sounds good in theory

but to some people and offer of coffee means

'I am offering to be polite for the love of all things good in the world don't dare take me up up on it or may head will explode'

to others it means

'please I want adult conversation please stay I beg you'


so it depends
This problem is solved if you don't offer coffee/tea/snacks to begin with!

agree with Mollycoddle. Maybe they didn't know what you wanted then to say.

But at least now you know you have said something, a line has been drawn, If they start to put their feet up next time and grab a blankie, you can say "sorry, I have too much on at the moment. Would love to catch up, but it's not very convenient now."
