Been on it years now.

Love the banter.

Love the advice.

Love the support.

It is a great site and I am glad to be on it.

Well done Mumsnet grin

Lots of nice people here.

I discovered Mumsnet 2 years ago and I watched for a while before joining. It has definitely made me think differently and not be so judgmental.

Some stuff on here makes me cry, some stuff makes me so grateful for what I have got, some stuff makes me eye roll and some stuff makes me laugh out load.

Sometimes I have been knocked sideways at the support people have given to others. Most of you are lovely!

I absolutely love it too. Interesting, funny, thought provoking.

It's fab

I'm young and years off being a mum but couldn't resist getting stuck in.

Particularly helpful at the moment at distracting me from a v painful breakup

I learn so much. It is so accessible.

And very funny. I love the anonymity, the sharing, the teasing.

I have even had my posts ridiculed on occasion but it doesn't bother me as I get what I need from MN and ignore the rest.

Me too. It's got me through some very very challenging times.

It makes me appreciate how very lovely my DH and family are.

It also opens my eyes to whole other worlds I've never considered never recovered from the two dishwashers thread

Having no rl support this site has got me through some bloody tough times and are still doing it now.

Honestly dont know how I would have held up with the support ive received.
Thanks to all the brilliant people on here thanks

Ludoole Thu 07-Aug-14 00:07:02

Without the support I meant!!!

I know it has its faults, but I love MN too. I've been here a couple of years now & get a lot out of it. I really enjoy being part of the community on here.

I've just joined and have found some really helpful threads already.

I like cake.

SaggyAndLucy Thu 07-Aug-14 00:30:47

without MN the lovely people herein, and the overwhelming support I've received in the last year, I'd probably have had a nervous breakdown!

I've joined quite recently since having babies and a friend recommended it to keep me entertained during late night feeds and now I'm completely addicted. I love it! Especially the property porn which is laugh out loud funny!

And please someone tell me about the 2 dishwasher thread......

Loveneverfails Thu 07-Aug-14 17:04:21

addictive it is grin

I would have imploded years ago without the advice and support I've had here in relation to my teenager.

Love it.

Feel very sad that none of my family like or understand mumsnet and what it means to me. DH sneers at it, dd hates it (because she knows I've posted about her here). Even my mum and sister see it as weird, irrelevant, a bit dodgy. :-(

MasterFlea Thu 07-Aug-14 17:25:52

Ludoole, I agree totally with you.

It has given me some great laughs and taught me a fair few things too. Most recently, the 3 minute meringue.

DH often asks what MNers would think about such a thing. He sneered at first but now values it.

headlesslambrini Thu 07-Aug-14 17:27:35

The best thing is the honesty you get from people. Sometimes you dont want to hear it but its usually the right thing.

LEMmingaround Thu 07-Aug-14 17:30:11

Been here too long seven years probably saved my life

Optimist1 Thu 07-Aug-14 17:52:11

It's a brilliant mix of laughter, tears, advice, inventive ideas and more. I initially came on to keep my finger on the pulse of modern parenting since I'm very old but am delighted with the ageless camaraderie that is MN.

Pheonixisrising Thu 07-Aug-14 18:02:04

I am fairly new and think its great

LilyandGinger Thu 07-Aug-14 18:04:45

hel it was a thread started by an Mner wondering if she should get one standard dishwasher or two slimline ones for her kitchen. A whole thread full of people who have two dishwashers (one for clean dishes one for dirty).

My flabber was well and truly gasted. I had never considered such a thing but apparently it's not uncommon though still weird do these people not have cupboards?

Optimist1 Thu 07-Aug-14 18:35:55

I knew someone who had two dishwashers, but it was a kosher thing.
