I now have a loft but it has only been completed today and I certainly won't be ironing in it!

MrsWho Wed 13-Jun-07 14:45:16

Hadn't seen that

mumto3girls Wed 13-Jun-07 14:42:48

Didn't Soapbox say it was her?

MrsWho Wed 13-Jun-07 14:41:26

LOL but who is she?

singingmum Wed 13-Jun-07 14:39:54

scared? meant shocked sorry

singingmum Wed 13-Jun-07 14:39:28

Why you shocked is it that she was looking at useful threads and not just chatting in general?Or are you scared at the whole HE vschool thing?

Twiglett Wed 13-Jun-07 14:38:13

I'd like to know exactly what is wrong with merely shouting up the stairs 'go to bed' in menacing voice


.. .s'not me

WideWebWitch Wed 13-Jun-07 14:30:08

But who is she? That's what I want toknow

Hassledhubby Wed 13-Jun-07 05:12:26

Hi everyone
I finally found her lurking on the Education boards somewhere between Primary and Home Ed (wtf??..[shock})
Thanks for all your advice, we have now installed Instant Messenger and also Skype so we now have two new ways of avoiding talking to each other in person while home and - especially important - of ignoring each other when one of us asks 'are you going to tell him to go to sleep or do I have to do it again...?'

RubberDuck Mon 11-Jun-07 08:16:29

or alternatively install MSN on her computer and the one you were obviously using last night and MSN her when it's her turn!

(We don't communicate by MSN when we're sitting next to each other in our household.... oh no... not at all )

tigermoth Mon 11-Jun-07 08:10:21

"I don't want to shout" ....nah, can't be my husband. I'm safe

Are you singlehandedly doing the school run or has your wife come out of hiding?

belgo Mon 11-Jun-07 08:07:57

we have phones on each level (we do have a loft), and use them to phone each other, rather then traipsing up and down the stairs, or going hoarse from shouting.

Hassledhubby, I suggest you put a similar system in place!

Trinityrhino Mon 11-Jun-07 07:45:49

tisn't me, ooooh to have a loft!

fryalot Mon 11-Jun-07 07:44:53

it could be an analogy of the way we live our lives..... it could be all of us

or not.

Blandmum Mon 11-Jun-07 07:31:55

It isn't me either.

I've had a look in my house and she isn't here. Mind you, I haven't checked in the cupboard under the stairs and anything could be in there.

eidsvold Mon 11-Jun-07 07:28:44

deffo not me - no loft, no ds and dh would die before posting on MN

Nbg Mon 11-Jun-07 07:26:46

lol @ this thread

lissie Mon 11-Jun-07 07:23:03

hassledhubby, with an op like that you should stick around!

Kaloo20 Mon 11-Jun-07 02:58:16

I hope you found her ...
tis not me

I'm sitting on the phone to Microsoft resolving a Severity 1 support call before UK business opens tomorrow.

Now they have taken control of my laptop, leaving me to watch / get on MN for 10 mins and rest.

Great post

Califrau Mon 11-Jun-07 02:50:02

did you find her?

I know it's not me a) cos my kids are not yet in bed and b) cos we have no stairs or loft!

hellish Mon 11-Jun-07 02:46:12

definatly not me, I never iron dh would have sussed me out straight away if I use that excuse, atm, i am looking for fence panels online

Nope - not me either. Brilliant thread though.

nappyaddict Mon 11-Jun-07 01:10:20

not me ... don't have a husband, my ds isn't old enough for rows about tidying, i only have one ds, we have a loft but its full of junk and i don't iron.

Deffo not me. Not least because DH would PHSL if I claimed I was off to do ironing!

Blu Mon 11-Jun-07 00:01:53

This is a mini-MN-classic thread!

Nightynight Sun 10-Jun-07 22:46:37

ha ha its not me either but I am loving this thread...oh come on someone, own up!!

misdee Sun 10-Jun-07 22:26:14

lol. isnt me as we dont have an upstairs.

soapbox Sun 10-Jun-07 22:24:20

It's ot me, as I was busy wrapping up DD1's birthday presents but DH opened this thread and came to tell me about it laughing his head off

Blu Sun 10-Jun-07 22:13:19

Well we have an ironing board in the loft room...but it can't be me because ironing wouldn't be a remotely convincing cover story.

It's Cod, busying herself in G&T, again.

FrannyandZooey Sun 10-Jun-07 22:03:17


own up hubby or wife

heifer Sun 10-Jun-07 21:12:10

well did you find here?

you can't leave us hanging wondering who you are!

kimi Sun 10-Jun-07 20:40:19

ProfYaffle Sun 10-Jun-07 20:27:44


@ Eve

Eve Sun 10-Jun-07 20:24:24

...playing who on the desktop?

bran Sun 10-Jun-07 20:22:37

Crossed with Franny, and you're right. I now don't think it's Mr NQC, especially as I don't think she hangs around the G&T threads.

bran Sun 10-Jun-07 20:20:43

Hassledhubby, are you in a converted school in East London? If so, I haven't seen you wife around at all, she may genuinely be doing something laundry related.

WideWebWitch Sun 10-Jun-07 20:20:42

It's not me because I know I'd have heard said row and my ds is in the bath. Plus I don't have a ds1

FrannyandZooey Sun 10-Jun-07 20:19:54

LOL MrNQC knows NQC's posting name

if it is him he is being a little bit coy

also their pc wasn't in the loft last time I checked

WideWebWitch Sun 10-Jun-07 20:19:53


Let us ask leading questions.....

Where in the country are you ??

kittylette Sun 10-Jun-07 20:18:54


Sobernow Sun 10-Jun-07 20:18:10

Have you got a loft? Ooh, I'd love a loft...

ProfYaffle Sun 10-Jun-07 20:17:46

Lol. My dh loves mn, he even bought me a laptop to keep me quiet while he's upstairs playing Eve on the desktop.

lulumama Sun 10-Jun-07 20:17:43

you tuck him up in bed...and do the ironing, there might be a reward in it for you !

bran Sun 10-Jun-07 20:17:34

Franny, do you think it might be Mr NQC? Two ds's, at least one of whom is very strong-willed, and a loft bedroom?

fryalot Sun 10-Jun-07 20:16:19

I kind of wish dp would have the nous to post a thread like this, instead of sucking his teeth and doing that "oh God Mumsnet" thing he does

talcy0 Sun 10-Jun-07 20:15:51

She's not with me

FrannyandZooey Sun 10-Jun-07 20:14:43

tell us their ages and a few anecdotes about them and we will try to track her down for you

are you sure you don't know her name? You know all the acronyms...

filthymindedvixen Sun 10-Jun-07 20:14:16

oh look Mr Hassled husband sirree, there's a gadget. You know, one of those expensive, shiny things!! <<points>>

Quick love, get offline and get the ironing board up, I reckon I've bought you two minutes....

Indith Sun 10-Jun-07 20:14:01


sorry, ds is in bed, dp is playing warcraft and I am staying right here!

I'd watch out though...spend much longer on here and you shall be dragged into the MN vortex and your ds will have to tuck himself in.

nannyogg Sun 10-Jun-07 20:14:00

Is that you Norman? Are you on the laptop in the kitchen?

NuttyMuffins Sun 10-Jun-07 20:13:55


Ceolas Sun 10-Jun-07 20:13:25

ha ha! Not me. not seen her, honest

TheArmadillo Sun 10-Jun-07 20:12:32


so glad its not me

belgo Sun 10-Jun-07 20:12:27

pmsl! not me!

filthymindedvixen Sun 10-Jun-07 20:12:20

well it's not me, I'm babysitting for a mate, but I do sympathise!

FrannyandZooey Sun 10-Jun-07 20:12:17

it's a fair cop darling

<quick, you lot get her out the back door while I distract him. We have to protect our own>

FLIER Sun 10-Jun-07 20:12:02

not me..........

What a great post!

Hassledhubby Sun 10-Jun-07 20:10:52

I have just left DS1 in his bedroom after a row over tidying up said room and his demand for cuddles rather than tidying up room and was hoping to find my wife ready to come in and finish the bedroom routine. I don't want to shout and wake up DS2 and am too tired to climb up stairs to loft. I last heard my wife muttering something about 'taking the ironing upstairs' which usually is code for her to escape on to Mumsnet. Don't know her 'mumsnet name' but if anyone of you is my wife, could you pop down and tuck DS1 up if it's not too much trouble to tear yourself away from either this or the Gifted and Talented thread.....:
