The poster who was really freaked out by her kids New step mum.
The lady whose hubby has a problem with his memory, and her sister was trying to push her out.
The woman who was up for a disaplinary at work over a Willy picture, which was on a shared computer.
The poster who was uninvited at Christmas, by the inlaws while her husband was posted abroad.
The mum who thought the school was wrong to take the kids swimming in January, and was sure they were to blame for her kid being ill.
The husband who was paying for everything, and when his wife started earning, she said he had to carry on.

Any ideas?

The swimming mum was banned from mnet, not sure about the others.

5madthings Sun 03-Mar-13 14:42:06

Oh actually the Xmas issue was resolved and the op had help from her in-laws when one of her children was poorly and in hospital.

Wishiwasanheiress Sun 03-Mar-13 14:42:56

How would you know banned? Curious. Can't tell you surely?

5madthings Sun 03-Mar-13 14:44:30

Mnet don't tell but she posted on mnet fb wall complaining and she wrote a blog post about it!

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 14:44:50

I often wonder about the woman with the disciplinary too!

5madthings Sun 03-Mar-13 14:45:47

And actually when mnet deleted the thread they said it was because the op now couldn't reply and was banned. There were a few threads about it last the time, all got deleted.

I would like to know what happened to the poor woman who was being pushed into staying with her Inlaws as soon as the baby was born. Felt so bad for her, really hope she didn't have to go in the end.

noclue2000 Sun 03-Mar-13 15:12:06

there are mumsnet fb groups!??!

5madthings Sun 03-Mar-13 15:14:30

Mnet has a fb page yes smile

And there are lots of mnet fb groups yes, my local area has one. They are not 'official' mnet things tho. But the mnet fb is their official one smile

noclue2000 Sun 03-Mar-13 15:16:31

oh. how do you find the local one?

Mumof3men Sun 03-Mar-13 15:20:43

I want to know how things are with Shinyballsandtinsel's family and the DSIL's kids-are things any better?

Lockedout434 Sun 03-Mar-13 16:12:46

Bump for footie

catfourfeet Sun 03-Mar-13 18:12:07


My Dh still has memory problems and the situation with sil has gone from bad to worse sad

I do often think of posting about it but as i have been accused ( by a VERY small minority I have to add) of "not doing anything" and " Just coming on MN every few months to complian" I keep writing an OP and then deleting it.

It is strangley conforting to think that somkeone out there still remembers "me" smile

what would you like to know ???

Amykins Sun 03-Mar-13 18:24:46

And how cheeky pickle is.

selsigfach Sun 03-Mar-13 18:30:41

If I recall correctly, one of the uninvited mum's children fell ill and was in hospital over Christmas and evil MIL/SIL stepped up to babysit her other child, for which she was very grateful.
There was no update on the psycho tattooed step-mum.

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 18:34:41

I wonder about the chutney thread also.

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 18:35:59

All of the official Mumsnet Locals have FB pages. Search for Mumsnet Name of County and you should find it.

Or name of city.

MadamFolly Sun 03-Mar-13 18:39:46

The tattood psycho stepmum was bonkers and scary, I hope OP managed to run far far away.

DontmindifIdo Sun 03-Mar-13 18:41:25

catfourfeet - if you need advice, post. People will be able to give you practical advice. And you might need to get some independent legal advice as well...

Catfourfeet, I don't think I ever posted on your threads as I had nothing helpful to say. But I do think of you and often wonder how you are. I'm sorry that your situation is no better.

Cat, please don't let the small minority stop you getting the support you need. Hope things get better for you

3littlefrogs Sun 03-Mar-13 19:09:26

I often wonder what happened to the lady whose MIL pierced her baby's ears with a pair of her own earrings, when the husband took the baby round to the PIL house.

Also the lady whose ex refused to return the children on the sunday evening. He lived in a gated complex and she couldn't get into the block of flats. That was much more recent.

StuntGirl Sun 03-Mar-13 19:30:25

thorn Lou from the chutney thread is doing well. Her ex husband is still a knobber though grin

WilsonFrickett Sun 03-Mar-13 19:33:12

I really want to know about the stepmum one. That thread gave me chills, I thought it must have been so scary for the OP.

catfourfeet. Sorry to hear your situation is ongoing. I think of you often. So sad that you feel you can't seek support because of a few nasty people.

Perhaps they would like to walk in your shoes for a while sad

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 20:11:03

Aw thanks Stunt, no real surprise there!

NcNcNcNc Sun 03-Mar-13 20:16:06

the disciplinary one - where I got to was the lady didn't know what was on the computer, she was waiting for a meeting to tell her, she worried it was an Ann Summers email she had clicked on, is that the same one?

I often wonder what happened.

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 20:19:53

Nc - the one I'm thinking of got beyond that. She had a mtg and was confronted by a photo of a penis, but it was a shared computer.

NcNcNcNc Sun 03-Mar-13 20:43:17

"confronted by a photo of a penis" grin

cat: Another who never posted on your thread but thinks of you often. I'm sorry to hear that things haven't improved too sad

I remember the disciplinary one too, I hope things ended well there. I wondered what had happened to swimming Mum. Was she just trolling? confused

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 20:56:08

Oh shit, I've had a drink, that came out wrong blush

robotpenguin Sun 03-Mar-13 20:59:06

I constantly find myself thinking about a poster who was I think bristol or bath area, who posted a couple of really desperate threads in AIBU. In most recent she had a very new baby and her husband was being hugely unsupportinve and she was miles from parents etc, TBH I can't remember the ins and outs but I have an overwhelming feeling of sadness when I think of her, in last post her DP had friends around downstairs and she was upstairs with newborn and a toddler, ultimately I think he walked out on her. Sometimes she just pops into my head and i hope she's okay!

FrillyMilly Sun 03-Mar-13 21:03:22

The only one that sticks in my head is the chutney one. Glad to hear she's doing ok.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Sun 03-Mar-13 21:04:43

Catfourfeet don't be put off posting if you need to offload. Anyone who objects to posters returning to cover an issue can scroll past or ignore if they have a problem. If they want to sound off you can do likewise. There must be plenty of folk who won't have seen previous posts or have lurked and not yet posted who may have fresh insights. The only thread police should be MNHQ imo.

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 21:05:09

Do I mean confronted with? Oh bloody hell, stop drinking and posting Thornrose.

Tee2072 Sun 03-Mar-13 21:09:09

How about just 'shown'? grin

thornrose Sun 03-Mar-13 21:12:06

Why the hell did I use the word confronted? I don't speak like that in real life. Oh dear confused

Catsdontcare Sun 03-Mar-13 21:12:22

I was thinking of you only recently cat please don't be put off posting

Amykins Sun 03-Mar-13 21:19:25

Also jenrose

OhDearieDearieMe Sun 03-Mar-13 21:23:47

I sometimes think of cheeky pickle - she got a right roasting last time she posted the same non-AIBU for the 100th time and for never ever acting on the advice she was given. Thing is she clearly wasn't well. Hope she's getting the help she so very obviously needed.

Amykins Sun 03-Mar-13 21:27:33

I hope so too.

dutchyoriginal Sun 03-Mar-13 21:28:29

Probably noone knows what happened in the end, but every now and then I wonder about the poster whose young teenage DSD was several months pregnant. We all followed along for a couple of weeks, the DSD refused to say who got her pregnant, she refused a termination and I think it was already too late for that by that time.

What was amazing, was how all the mnetters shared advice on how give the sex talk to their children. The OP then changed her name, because she and her family became too identifiable.

CaptainVonTrapp Sun 03-Mar-13 21:52:01

ok I'm going back about 5 years here. But, the woman in Australia with a new baby, no family/support nearby, totally overwhelmed and struggling. She wrote massive emotional posts and many posters really felt a link with her and offered her loads of advice. I think she went to stay in a Mother and baby unit for a while.

Bearcrumble Sun 03-Mar-13 21:57:41

What happened to the family that were going to emigrate to Australia and the mil was going to tag along for the first 6 months but was making all sorts of demands about what kind of house they woukd buy etc and I think dil thought she'd never go home if she came?

Flossyfloof Sun 03-Mar-13 22:33:23

The one I remember is the wife whose husband refused to allow her access to his study and computer when he was not there. The room was locked and she was not allowed a key. She got a bit shirty I think and asked people not to continue posting - but I was/am desperate to know what happened in the end.

Floopy21 Mon 04-Mar-13 09:08:41

I think of that one too flossy. So weird, & with cameras to make sure she hadn't snooped! WHAT WAS IN THERE?!?!

ZolaBuddleia Mon 04-Mar-13 09:11:45

All very trivial, but I found myself wondering the other day how Starlight got on with her Christmas dinner for about a hundred people in the middle of nowhere with no car and no supermarket delivery slots!

letseatgrandma Mon 04-Mar-13 09:32:46

What about the lady last year whose neighbour kept appearing at the door wanting her to look after their child for them before/after school rather than get proper childcare?!

MmeThenardier Mon 04-Mar-13 09:44:59

I sometimes think about that one too flossy. She's probably locked in there too by now... That was a funny one cos she posted it and seemed to expect people to say "oh its fine and normal" and got really unhappy when people suggested it was really odd and unusual. (Although admittedly some people did go over the top with their ideas of what may be in there)

Oscarandelliesmum Mon 04-Mar-13 10:15:30

I worry about the lady stuck upstairs with new baby and toddler whose arse of a husband walked out and also wavesandsmiles who was going to name change.....hope they are ok. Shitty, shitty husbands in both casessad

Oscarandelliesmum Mon 04-Mar-13 10:21:14

If anyone out there knows how waves is doing, I would love to know, I mainly lurked but think of her often.

Clumsyoaf Mon 04-Mar-13 10:32:28

Hi I was the one uninvited at christmas! In all honesty the family have been brilliant. My daughter was transferred to a hospital on the other side of london and PIL/SILs all helped out with my toddler. Daughter is doing fine and has been diagnosed as being intolerant to Gluten so we are learning all about new foods etc.

On a seperate note... I always wonder what happened to Coffee dog/pot?

noclue2000 Tue 05-Mar-13 09:28:09

tell us whats been going on.

auntpetunia Tue 05-Mar-13 12:11:33

Oscar waves is still in the same situation twunt still being a twunt and waves still chucking. She's getting stronger though and things will change soon.

zukiecat Tue 05-Mar-13 12:21:50

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Boomtastic Tue 05-Mar-13 12:29:46

Another trivial one, but I wonder how the skiing holiday went - where the OP had invited a couple of friends and they were unexpectedly bringing their children.

helibee Tue 05-Mar-13 13:10:41

I wondered what happened to the poster where her dh wanted to emigrate and she absolutely didn't. I know she posted several threads a few months apart but not sure if I missed what happened in the end.

Zola I managed to get a collection slot with ASDA, and DH went out on Christmas Eve to pick it up. Mum turned up with a suitcase of pickles and Aunts and cousins did the dinner between them and I kept everyone topped up in drinks.

Thanks for your interest. grin

ZolaBuddleia Tue 05-Mar-13 13:28:19

Sounds marvelous!

Abra1d Tue 05-Mar-13 13:30:24

Yes, I would love to know what happened to the pregnant DSD and the lovely sounding mother who was having to deal with it all.

Footface Tue 05-Mar-13 13:40:24


I often think about you, and what a difficult situation you are in.
Please don't be put off posting

complexnumber Tue 05-Mar-13 13:50:48

I read the skier with the unexpected child guests' update. i think her husband had an accident on the ski slope and extra children was the least of her worries.

Fakebook Tue 05-Mar-13 13:57:36

I also wonder about Cheekypickle. I felt sorry for her because I remember everyone used to jump on her for repeating her problems again. I bet they scared her away. Poor woman.

The chunt threads are still going on over at OTBT. I'm a lurker.

HecateWhoopass Tue 05-Mar-13 14:00:44

There was one woman who said that a friend of hers was faking a pregnancy. The due date was only a couple of months away and she was wanting advice and wondering what would happen when that date came and went.

Then she disappeared.

I have often wondered what did happen, or whether it was all made up and I was just really gullible again. grin

There was one a couple of months ago that upset me tremendously where a woman posted saying her husband had been hitting their SEN child while he was on the toilet and the boy asked her to promise to not let it happen again.
It looked like she wasn't brave enough to do anything about it, so I had to stop reading. I'd love to heear she'd got away from him.
