Love love love this thread, kept me entertained for a whole hour at work!

Grant is an electrician who has been quite busy of late, going around fixing problems created by Lynne the Lesbian Electrician. He likes going to the pub for "early doors" and is on the darts team. He is married to Rosslyn who owns a boutique selling clothes for "mature" women, and is estranged from her weathy family for marrying a bit of rough at 21 when she got her trust fund money. They have two children - Tony and Heather.

Tony is also an electician and plays darts with his dad. Heather is a doctor's receptionist and wears bobbly tights.

My name is very close to Linda. I have just got a new job as an admin in the local hospital grin.

PMSL I am wearing an old pair of birkenstocks today but DH is not wearing flip flops because I confiscated them!

Francis lives in a big house. He is in his 40s and quite attractive in a sort of Bohemian way, and wears corduroy and velvet a lot. No-one has a clue what he does for a living, although rumours occasionally circulate.

Frank is a traditional pub landlord.

Fran is a rather daft boy who is training to be a pilot. He has flying lessons in a Cessna at the weekends, with Graeme the flight instructor. Graeme knows that Fran will never get his head around instrument flying, but hasn't the heart to tell him. Graeme is ex-RAF and once harboured hopes of becoming the first British astronaut.

John manages a local newsagents. He calls the saturday girls 'luv' and stares at their boobs. He is nice enough, but he and his back room always smells of egg sandwiches.

He is strict but fatherly with the paper boys. He likes to give lollipops to the little kids bought in in pushchairs. All the mothers think it is very sweet, except Anna who plasters on a rictus grin when she comes in for the Independent on Sunday and Green Parent, with baby Clementine in a sling, and as soon as she is out of the door whips the lolly out of the hands of Arlo who at 3.5 has never tasted refined sugar.

Alan the area manager comes to visit the newsagent once a month. He wears nice suits from Marks and Spencer, and only wears shirts that require cufflinks. He has 32 pairs, including funky 'groom' ones, and Crystal Palaces ones. He wishes he worked in the city instead of in Slough's 'Sweeties'HQ.

Sarah and Lee work behind the counter of Sweeties at the weekend, and when the shop is quiet they snog behind the counter, and both quick like being caught in the act. Lee wants to act, and sometimes works as a TV extra. Sarah likes Massive Attack because Lee does.

Sweeties will become a Tesco Metro in 6 months time.

Tanya and she works for BT.

If your name is Emma and you have a boyfriend, you only want to socialise by doing "couple things". If you're single you will only go on girls night out and get in a huff if there are any couples within a one mile radius. You are usually blond, but sometimes try brunette for a few weeks before getting your highlights re-done

Olivia - cute child, gets into drugs in a big way from mid teens. Likes scruffy men

John - sensible. Dependable. Dull. People avoid him

Oliver - bullied a lot at school but does quite well in later life

Matt - has a home gym and unused mountaineering equipment

almummy Mon 17-Nov-08 13:21:26

Dom works in television. Mummy, Daddy and married sisters Lavinia and Thomasina all live in Surrey. Dom went to public school where he was bullied mercilessly, though in his mind they were actually his friends. As they grew up his mates always pulled the birds so when Natalie came to work at his office and showed interest in him he couldn't believe it. Mummy, Daddy, Lavinia and Thomasina do not like Natalie - she is "no good" for Dom.

Now Dom and Natalie have an eight year old daughter who they drag around gastro pubs with them while out for "meals". They usually manage to consume two bottles of wine per "meal". Dom looks much older than he used to and has no money left, though he ignores this fact while racking up more and more credit card debt entertaining Natalie and making sure she does not leave him.

TheSmallClanger Tue 04-Nov-08 22:28:29

I know this is an old thread, but it's the funniest thing ever and I'm dying to contribute now!

Janine shoplifts.

Jake is a recovered drug addict who has been through rehab and an extensive programme of therapy. This has made him a little wearing to be around. He met his wife, Helena, at a therapy group, and now works in interior design with a friend. Helena is a slightly dappy youth worker - she got the job because she has escaped having an actual criminal record, coming from a wealthy background which meant she did not have to steal things to buy her drugs.
Jake and Helena now vigorously eschew anything addictive. At their wedding, at which Jake cried all the way through, no-one was even allowed champagne. Sadie, Jake's mother, secretly thinks that he was easier to deal with when he was a smack-and-coke-addled advertising executive. She worries that he will get into evangelical Christianity.
His sister, Ruth, is a Conservative local councillor and has disowned him, but more because she thinks his tattoos and oddly-coloured hair are a bad influence on her children.

Jodi is a Veterinary Nursing student. She was not over-bright at school, but was encouraged by someone like Helena to do her course because she LOVES animals and wants to help them. She is surprisingly good at the anatomy bit and is one of the most popular girls in her group, with the other students and her teachers. Sadly, the first time she witnesses a cat being put to sleep whilst on a placement, she goes to pieces and does not return to her studies. Eventually, she opens her own poodle parlour.

Emily-Jane is a trainee estate agent.
She is 19.
She is bright and pretty, and has nice nails.
She has a lovely telephone voice.

She is love with Neil, who is a fully-fledged estate agent.
He has his own car and his own flat.
And his own clipboard.
He has shiny shoes - and a shiny suit.
He is less than tall - an aspect for which he overcompensates by wearing heeled boots, even in Summer.
Neil is too much in love with himself to have a relationship with anyone else.

Emily-Jane thinks she will work with Neil forever.
She won't.
But it will take her about three years to realise he is a total nob.

Moira wears Poison, by Dior. She knows it adds to her "presence" in a room full of strangers.

BearMama Tue 18-Mar-08 23:54:45

Moira works for a market research company. She has neat blonde bobbed hair, wears suits that are ten years old and flowery blouses.

She is used to addressing roomfuls of people in anonymous hotel conference suites where she goes through questions one by one and is proud of her methodical approach.

She is quite territorial of her overhead projector and secretly longs to run her own Weight Watchers support group.

Troy has had the full body electrolysis now, but the stripping still has some allure for him, so he's sticking with it, until something better comes along.

Rosie has changed. She dabbled in evangelical christianity but knew, long term it wasn't for her. She is dabbling in becoming a goth, and wants to change her name to siouxsie.

Quattrocento Tue 18-Mar-08 21:15:45

Sarah teaches primary school. She dyes her hair surreptitiously (and badly) at home. The ethnic clothes and beads have turned into things that resemble suits. She will never see a size 12 again.

Kim always flashes her (not great) tits to hail cabs after a night out.

Helen always ends up holding Kim's hair back.

Seb is on a gap year in Thailand. When he comes home he will study marketing at University.

Thalia is a ladyboy. She'd quite like a go on Seb. She likes his foppish blonde hair and big blue eyes. She's seen the bulge in his combat trousers when she smoulders at him in the hostess club.

BearMama Tue 18-Mar-08 20:38:49

Kim works in the gift shop of a tourist attraction. She likes to gossip with Helen in payroll and her favourite film is "Dirty Dancing". She likes going on staff nights out, getting pissed and trying her luck with the cute guides who think she is a bit annoying because she is always asking too many personal questions when they are outside having a fag break.

Teddy was a Lloyds name. He had to sell everything, including the family silver, when it all went the way of the pear. He rents the lodge to the stunning Queen Anne mansion he once owned. A vulgar city boy, Tre, bought the house for a song and proceeded to rip the beautiful oak panelling from the billiard room and fitted a bar and disco ball. Tre is planning a Japanese Zen garden instead of the celebrated Gertrude Jekyll landscape. Teddy does not approve.

Greg is a vegetarian and cycles to work on a small, unpopular, lefty newspaper.

BearMama Tue 18-Mar-08 20:16:39

Kathleen works at the local council and is responsible for ordering stationary in her department. When no one is around she reads 'Mens Health' and admires the lovely photographs. She has a huge crush on Gavin, the 23 yr old lad who works in her department and always asks how her weekend was. Kathleen is 54.

Dino chewed up Michael's Nike trainers.
He didn't mention it to Chester and Topher, as he couldn't cope with a scene.
One of the laces is completely missing.
Michael knows Chester and Topher will panic when Dino passes it.
Michael has decided to go and stay at his parent's house for a few days, until the problem is passed!

Jayne's mother, Joanie, goes to the evangelical church with her neighbour, Rosie. She has persuaded Jane to allow her to take her oldest grandchildren, Max, (8), Martha (6) and Ged (4) with her Sunday services. Jayne isn't keen on her children being brainwashed by happy clapping, but relishes the opportunity to clean the oven and think about Roger while her husband Kevin takes Luke, their current youngest to the park.

Joanie wears flowery dresses and head scarves enjoys dancing round her living room with a feather duster listening to Christian music. Her grandkids thinks she great fun; Jayne finds her quite embarassing.

Dino is Chester and Tophers chocolate Labrador puppy. He's named after a waiter who served them when they went to Rome for the weekend.

He's pissed on the white sofa 3 times, detroyed the Bose sound sytem, and done something unspeakable to the cashmere throw Chester bought Topher last Christmas.

Michael didn't go to Chester and Tophers party, as he wans't feeling to well, and it was decided Dino sould spend the night with Michael.

Madge is Deirdre's rather sour older sister, who has been married to Roy since forever and is very disapproving of Deirdre's new love.

Roy sits in front of the telly every night picking his feet, eating crisps and pickled onions and drinking special brew.

MrsSchadenfreude Sat 21-Jul-07 15:40:33

Where did Madge come from?! Doris!

MrsSchadenfreude Sat 21-Jul-07 15:40:06

Reg was married to Doris. Doris died suddenly after a routine operation for piles went horribly wrong. Reg told everyone he was everso upset because he'd just had a new three piece delivered and Madge never got to see it.

Reg is being consoled by Deirdre who works in the paper shop, smokes 40 a day and has a penchant for purple cardies and bright pink lippy.

If your name is Trudy you work with animals. You have a pet labrador and loved Blue Peter as a child. You save up your salary to go to West End musicals. You have lovely thick hair and are actually quite attractive in an outdoors-y ungroomed sort of way.

MrsScavo Sat 21-Jul-07 14:25:54

Geniveve has long wavy hair, and a love of long flowing skirts. Her father lives in Mongolia at the moment, but has been posted all over the world. Her mother in Paris. She went to boarding school in Enland, and during her teen years felt as though she had no real home, as she only saw her mother when they were in skiing or in Nice. That is why her garden flat is so important to her. At the moment she works in publishing, but would love to set up her own organic clinic providing aromatherapy/reflexology/reiki/hypnotherapy.

ShinyHarryPplHoldingPortkeys Sat 21-Jul-07 13:53:17

Jayne is pregnant again. Her long suffering husband Kevin isn't sure how it happened because he can't making love to her since last New Years Eve after she'd got squiffy on Lambrini. But Jayne is very In Control of Everything including her own fertility and way able to tell Kevin that they conceived on Tuesday 12th June, 2 days post mid-cycle and why doesn't he remember?

(Jane knows she is probably pregnant by Roger, the husband of one of her friends, who she sometimes has sex with because he appeals to her more than Kevin does. Roger has nasal polyps and doesn't notice the smell. Kevin is so accustomed to it that he doesn't notice it either.)

Jayne's sister, Geraldine, the light-fingered office cleaner, who has been single for 14 months, has started to see her brother-in-law Kevin in a new light. Jaybe once told her, when they were first together, that he was well hung and she has found herself thinking about this a lot as she empties waste paper baskets and mops the gents.

She promoted Gavin to Assistant Editor (Features) simply because he's male and heterosexual. All her female staff hate her guts. Her daughter Anastasia has anorexia, her son Toby has dyslexia, and Charlie the Jack Russell is incontinent.

Carnoodleusfudge Fri 20-Jul-07 23:59:11

Joyce is on a bit of a high.

When Alistair left her for the trollope from the office she was, well, shattered. There is no other way to put it. There she was cooking and ironing his shirts for the last 20 odd years and then he trades her in for a younger model. And it wasn't as though she had let herself go - what with the pilates and swimming. Alistair was always one of those "tea on table and slippers in front of the fire" types.

Well after the initial devestation Joyce began to find that life on her own was not quite as bad as she feared. Alistair wanted a quick no fuss divorce and as a result she managed to take him to the cleaners and come out of the marriage in quite good shape.

When it was apparent that no children were to come from the marriage Joyce got herself, what Alistair always termed "a little job". It was at the local garden centre - working on the tills and customer services but only when it was very busy. Her boss however, sensing the need for purpose in Joyce's life offered her more house and now she has a full time job as Head of Conifers. She has never been happier.

Troy is lovely - he just doesn't have any depth or huge requirements from life.

Tory on the other hand - well she'll never be satisfied. It started with wanting a pony, but that one wan't pretty enough for showing, then she wanted an eventer but daddy couldn't afford, well, the best you know. Then she found out that the guy she was shaggin wasn't quite what he seemed to be at first glance (Miles maybe?) and so it goes on... Now tory is 43 and getting a teeny bit desperate. Still goes to old school reunions, still hoping, but let's face it her best fun is had from shagging the local Master of the Fox Hounds while his wife is staying at her mother as she's broken a hip and needs a hand right now.

She picks discussion topics like 'Mad to Be A Mother?' and 'Things I Wish They'd Told Me'. The mums think she's a bit patronising; the Girl Guide attitude is sooo hard to switch off - they're just there for the tea and chocolate digestives.

Elspeth has a labrador calendar on her kitchen wall. She also owns a pair of Hunter wellies, green of course, believing they are a mark of higher social status.

Rachel is salt of the earth and lives in Bromley. She loves Facebook. She was the first of the secretaries at work to get on Facebook, and she has got loads of friends. She spends all her working hours at her desk "biting" "throwing sheep" and "poking" her many virtual friends instead of formatting the press releases Bozza lobs her way.

She is wondering whether to "poke" Bozza, who is also addicted to facebook, but is less good at swiftly minimising it.

Miles's mum Ebeth likes to be a traditional wife, secretly she wants to kill her domineering husband and drip of a son, who has inevitably turned in to the chavanist her husband is.

Ebeth does all the cooking but after 50+ years she still isn't that great and sticks to the old favourites like mince and tatties but sometimes gets adverturous with tinned pinapple rings on gammon steaks. Sha has heard of lasagne but has never tried it let alone make one.

Ebeth is good at cutting out coupons and actually uses them, her high moments are when her Coop dividends get paid out, its her only money apart fromt the housekeeping her husband gives her and expects her to account for every penny.

Miles has working class parents who thought naming him Miles would help his future career but didn't think about the fact he would get the shit kicked out of him at school, but he did OK with his exams and went on to do chemistry at the local college so now works at the chemical plant nearby.

Miles likes to play golf with his dad and cycles to work, he gets to borrow his dad car sometime though. He has moved out to his own flat eventualy, but still goes home a lot so Mum can make his tea and do his washing.

Miles is really a bit square but not as bad as hid freinds so he once got seduced by a slightly intoxicated female, she took him back toher house to do naughty things. Miles though she was a prostitute and spent the whole time worrying when he was supposed to pay her.

Clare is part of the 8B "set". They go everywhere together - Starbucks, Lush and they are all invited to Matt's party on Saturday night. Matt's parents have a really big house and are really relaxed. Matt has sex with his girlfriends in their house whilst they are there and they know. Matt is going to dress up and act like Pete Docherty for his party. Clare is in awe of all of this. Her parents aren't that keen that she goes to a mixed school.


On Sunday morning Clare really can't face getting up. She feels trampled and torn. It wasn't just the fact that she had to leave the party when her dad turned up to collect her (why did he have to come to the door and announce "I'm Clare's father) or that Matt gave her a weird smile when she presented the (half full)bottle of Dubonnet filched from her parents drinks cabinet. It wasn't that Dan - who she quite fancies in 6th form called her muffin top.

It was a realisation that her friends were not her friends. It was immediately apparent on arrival at the party they had all been drinking before - but had not invited her. It was obvious they had all been at Beck's house to get ready before hand.

It was the fact that they had all dressed up as Amy Winehouse and hadn't included her. She was there in her jeans and a top from Primark.

Suneeta has a dumpy, less intelligent and less pretty younger sister named Sushma, who her parents constantly nag, belittle and compare to Suneeta.

However, despite her parents trying in vain to marry her off to a series of gawky cousins and sons of friends, she will keep her head down at school, do unexpectedly well in her A-levels, slog through medicine at Oxford whilst living at home, qualify in an obscure speciality like nephrology and eventually snare a tall, handsome cardiac surgeon named Vijay from an extremely nice family.
Her in-laws adore her and bankroll a colossal wedding.
Her parents will be slightly baffled at all this and persist in thinking of Suneeta as the good one, despite her relationship with Darren.
Meanwhile they are pinning their hopes on Suresh, their youngest and the only son. He is a fat spoilt teenager whose only ambition is to make enough money to buy a Mercedes like his disreputable uncle Sajeev.
Nonetheless is in complete awe of Vijay and dotes on his Sushma's new baby Neeraja. He buys her toys online so his mates don't find out.

Little do they know of Suneeta’s passionate love for Darren, the young strikingly handsome man who tends to the family 10 acre garden, in beautiful Oxford. They plan to elope as soon as Suneeta finishes her studies. They will live with Darren’s granddad in his one bedroom flat, along with his dog, until Darren completes his course in ju-jitsu and then he will open his own business, where Suneeta can work on reception.

Diggory has a secret.

Daphne Amory - Blunt likes dogs ( 5 - all bitches) tweed and stout walking shoes.

She was "disappointed in love" in 1947 and remained at home living off the small trust fund with Mummy and Daddy.

There was the most awful stink in 1951 when Daddy made some very unwise investment choices and they had to sell the Big House and move in to the Lodge - where Daphne and the bitches have remained ever since.

Mrs Hopkins at the village shop has told her that Carl and Julian ( who have bought The Laurels)are Gay ........ " Well of course they are dear - Gay and Bright have you seen how Julian has brought the Shrubbery back to life?? - now 1lb of the best back bacon, milk and Bread - and pop in some lambs liver for my girls please - and have Darren deliver"

Daphne hasn't paid her account at the village store since 1996.

She walks the bitches back to the Lodge, Carl stands transfixed in horror as 17st of canine cannonball hurtles towards his Armani clad crotch - "Don't mind Bess dear - she's just being friendly" Daphne beams - as Bess drools over Carl - who is now getting the full effect of Bess's halitosis.

Daphne would like to invite Carl and Julian over to the lodge for a sherry one evening but once the dogs are settled in the armchairs and sofa's there's not much room. She decides she'll wait til the weather is better then they can have Pimms in the garden while she pins Julian down to what exactly he feeds the Hebes.

Mrs Webber doesn't have a first name. Well not that many people use. She believes in keeping a distance - especially in her line of work. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that. She has five winter outfits and five summer outfits that she rotates on a daily basis. She did hear someone snigger that "it must be Tuesday because Mrs Webber is in green tweed" but she chose to ignore that childish comment, after all, it had come from Dan the PE assistant.

The funny thing is Mrs Webber isn't married. Actually she is Miss Geraldine Webber but somewhere back in the mists of time class 5W gradually changed Miss to Mrs and she has never corrected it. She is not sure that she would like to be a Mrs - men and all their idiosyncracies and smells - but somehow it makes her more human to be a Mrs.

Crispin is very fond of the colour pale lemon

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:54:08

Crispin wears cravats and tweed jackets.

moodlumthehoodlum Thu 19-Jul-07 23:53:03

Crispin lives in a "studio" in Pimlico enabling him to walk to work, which he does every day, with an umbrella in hand. Rain or shine.

Troy has a sister. Kim. Kim is a fitness fanatic and can't function without her daily 6.30am circuits class with Greg, an ex SAS PE trainer.

Liz was with Andrea, when Andrea gave birth to Fynn.

MrsScavo Thu 19-Jul-07 23:48:59

Crispin works in an art gallery, but relies on funds left to him by his grandfather. He studied art history at Oxford, or so he would have one believe. He hates taking the tube, and incorrect use of the English language.

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:47:31

moodlumthehoodlum Thu 19-Jul-07 23:46:31

Troy drives a convertible ford escort, but once he's saved for the electrolysis, he's going to start saving for a subaru impreza.

hatwoman Thu 19-Jul-07 23:45:27

Liz spent quite some time at Greenham Gommon. now she is a disillusioned embittered social worker or teacher. with a nice line in smelly candles. she does circle dancing and goes on retreats.

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:44:21

Troy is thinking about having a total body electrolysis treatment and is saving up.

moodlumthehoodlum Thu 19-Jul-07 23:43:21

Troy is a stripper. He has a weekly spray tan and used to work as a holiday rep, but the money's better as a stripper. His real name is Tim, and his mum thinks he works in a gym in Braintree.

Gideon sometimes forgets to eat.
Magenta licks her fingers if they get mayonnaise on them. She has dirty fingernails.

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:41:34

Gideon always takes the bus - it gives him a chance to read.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 19-Jul-07 23:40:22

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:40:17

Magenta wears underwired lacy black bras and never wears knickers.

DangerousBeans Thu 19-Jul-07 23:38:02

Except her stripey tights, which she rinses out under the tap every night, then puts on the water pipes in the bathroom to dry.

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:37:13

Magenta keeps her clothes on the floor and rarely washes them

MrsScavo Thu 19-Jul-07 23:37:05

I honestly went to school with Gideon. I didn't like him then.

DangerousBeans Thu 19-Jul-07 23:36:14

Magenta has purple hair and likes to wear lots of eyeliner.
She has a bulldog called Columbia.
Magenta's real name is Sharon.

Gideon is tall and lean. Wears polo necks.

CalifrauniusFudge Thu 19-Jul-07 23:32:45

Gideon is creeping me out

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:30:45

Gideon is gorgeous, intelligent and never smiles as he is always thinking serious thoughts. He is not remotely sexual and doesn't smell of anything.

moodlumthehoodlum Thu 19-Jul-07 23:30:26

I think he may have tried working for various auction houses, but has never really endeared himself to anyone and hasn't really got on.

He lives near (but not with) his parents and is doing a PhD.

CalifrauniusFudge Thu 19-Jul-07 23:28:46

moodlumthehoodlum Thu 19-Jul-07 23:27:37

Gideon is an only child of elderly parents.

Ann is a dentist. She has big teeth - she thinks of them as an advert for her business.

CalifrauniusFudge Thu 19-Jul-07 23:22:10

Phillippa lives up to the meaning of her name. She's at the stables every morning to feed cupcake before going to work at the Equine Art Gallery. She often pops in to give cupcake a carrot at lunch time. her boss is getting slightly annoyed that there are bits of straw in the back room.

Darren lives it large. Mechanic by day, DJ at the Newt and Cuke by night. Drinks Stella when others are buying and corona if he's buying it himself. isnt keen on teh smoking ban as the dance floor is half empty with everyone outside and he only gets 2 breaks an evening so he can't sneak out and join them

LongDeadMotherofHarryP Thu 19-Jul-07 23:21:01

DangerousBeans Thu 19-Jul-07 23:13:24

Olivia has the skill to spot really excellent threads, and works tirelessly to save them from certain doom.
She is occasionally concerned about the strange noises emanating from Tech's shed.
She likes the colour mauve.

Fiona has just realised that her dream of doing equine studies is going to come true. She will be taking her horse with her to university, which is just as well because since being the star of the local pony club, she has always prefered horses to people.

Fiona will eventually marry Gavin the vet and will end up doing the paperwork for his practice.

They will have one child, a girl, who will end up as horsy as her mother.

Jason & Tanya had a lucky win on the lottery & bought the Manor House in the village.Tanya likes to think of herself as 'lady of the manor' & thinks that the locals don't show her enough deference.

She employs to women from the village to do the cleaning,but is thinking of letting them go after she found them sniggering over her lovely collection of Capo-di-Monte.

Tanya is a furious social climber & was cock a hoop when the local shoot invited her & Jason out to join them for a day.But stupid Jason ruined it all by getting over excited & shooting a pheasant running along the hedge.How were they to know that you never shoot a bird on the ground?

Tanya secretly hates the countryside,but would sooner die than admit it.She'd be happier in a 'executive home'on a nice safe housing estate,but Jason won't hear of moving again.

Everyone refers to Amelia as 'an absolute brick'

nomdeplume Thu 19-Jul-07 21:04:22

Amelia has proper 'driving shoes' and a glossy bob

nomdeplume Thu 19-Jul-07 21:03:00

Amelia turns a blind eye as she has always found Hugo's lovemaking technique lacking

nomdeplume Thu 19-Jul-07 21:01:47

Amelia has been married to Hugo for 15 years. He is a banker with a penchant for blue and white striped shirts, she is a dumpy sloane with a fondness for upturned collars and padded alice bands.

They live in a Cath Kidston haven of a Cotswold pile with their twins, Eliza and George. Eliza spends most of her time at Pony Club. George is the captain of the rugby team.

Amelia persuaded Hugo to buy the house, which he never really liked. He agreed so long as he could keep a 'pied-a-terre' in London where he meets up with Monique for his twice weekly golden shower

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 19-Jul-07 20:59:18

DANCESwithDumbledore Thu 19-Jul-07 20:23:11

Maurice is the photocopier repairman. He is Wayne's brother. He's always been his mum's favourite, especially since he married Tanya who is an estate agent with Savill and Dunne and is therefore 'reet posh'. Mandy hates Tanya.

nomdeplume Thu 19-Jul-07 20:23:05

Wayne's twin brother, Kevin, works in MacDonalds and still has terrible acne and a stutter.

Barry, their dad, is a London cabbie. Sheila, his wife, is addicted to home shopping channels and has a little dog.

Carnoodleusfudge Thu 19-Jul-07 20:22:19

Mandy has saved up nearly £300 over the past few years incase Wayne ever asks her to marry him. She keeps it in the box of "poncy" herbal tbags she once bought. She will use it for a dress and some nice outfits for the kids.

Carnoodleusfudge Thu 19-Jul-07 20:16:42

Addison is from USA.
He likes to work out and check his stock options on an hourly basis. Saffie isn't really anything serious - just a fling whilst he is over here. She can sometimes be a bit demanding so he cools it off.

DANCESwithDumbledore Thu 19-Jul-07 20:09:08

Saffie is obsessively clean. She has to be in control but actually could do with a damn good shag from someone just like Dexter.

Carnoodleusfudge Thu 19-Jul-07 20:06:21

DANCESwithDumbledore Thu 19-Jul-07 20:05:33

Cam - Camilla to her mother - is in a bit of a fluster. Rufus someone or other has just come in to buy the catalogue for the English paintings sale next week and although he was a bit older he had a certain glint in his eye and no doubt in his wallet too if he is thinking of buying at that sale.

Cam thinks he looked as though he should be married but no wedding ring. She could ditch Olivier - the French thing no longer has the ring of mystery and glamour it once did and find someone to support her for a change.

Oi... EscaperFrom... I'm a Hazel

MrsBadger Thu 19-Jul-07 18:52:49

Rafe fancies Freya as well.

He has an English degree and a TEFL qualification but is too laid back to get a proper job and is working in Nero because he gets to plug his iPod into the shop's sound system and play his own mixes.

He lives in a squalid flat in Clapham that his grandfather bought in the 1920s which would be worth a fortune now. He still has long hair and says 'man'.

In two years his uncle will offer him a share in his organic farming business and he will move to Wales to make sausages.

Carnoodleusfudge Thu 19-Jul-07 18:52:38

Bob is at a bit of a loose end to be honest. He finished decroating the hall last week and, well, the whole house is looking spick and span. People comment on it - "Oo you are keeping the house nice. Lindy would be so proud". But what else is he supposed to do?

It's been three years since Lindy, well, Lindy went. In the end it was her heart but until that year she had been as fit as a fiddle. They had so many plans and now he has nothing.

He has been brave. He can run up a rather good fish pie and at Christmas he had the neighbours in for a sherry. He enjoys visiting the family and that but it is the day to day that is hard to fill. People were very kind in the begining - inviting him to tea, some friends even invited him along to their sons house in the Dordogne - and very nice it was too. But it is the monotony of everyday when the whole world is rushing to do stuff and meet people. All he want is his Lindy back.

Pippa is an enthusiastic whippet thin SAHM with three Boden kids. She is the envy of all the Mums at her childrens school. However what they don't know is that she is addicted to slimming pills because her husband, Rufus - a 'managemnet consultantt - has slept with most of the young PAs in his office in London.

EscapeFrom Thu 19-Jul-07 18:44:29

Rafe would be two thirds of the way through his drama degree if he hadn't had to repeat the first year. He like to wear women's belts and air kisses his female friends, insisting he is so gay, but the thought of actual sex with an actual man gives him the heebie jeebies.

Instead, he likes to cop a feel of his podgy friend Hazel's tits and arse, hiding behind the irony, all the while harbouring a burning crush on her.

He can't ask her out though - she's 3 stone overweight and female - his career would be in tatters before it got off the ground.

Clive has never been married. He is, in fact a virgin depsite being 43. At school he was very good at PE and wanted to be a PE teacher but wasn't clever enough. Girls fancied him at school but he was too shy to do anything about it. After such a promising start he isn't sure what went wrong.

The highlight of his week is now waiting to catch glimpses of Bev when she comes for her Tai Chi class on a Tuesday. He has had 2 verbal warnings for "leering at women in the fitness classes". He was only looking a Bev, but he felt he couldn't admit that.

Clive desperately wants to butch up his appearance at bit in order to appeal to Bev and give himself the confidence to ask her out. For 3 months he has been trying to come up with a legitimate excuse to call at CSLogistics (he read it in her memebership profile) and manufacture a "Wow" I didn't know you worked here!" moment!

Beverly has been at CSLogistics as long as anyone can remember. She has the answers to all the queries and can run the office single handed for a fortnight whilst Himself is in Greece with the family.

Bev, as she likes to be called, has become the office mother figure. She can remember when Darren - hair gelled delivery driver - dumped Charmain (office assistant) the week before the works Christmas do and she has had to deal with not one but two false pregnancy alarms from girls on the front desk. The drivers give her a cheery wave through the window of a morning and a wink to the new girl on reception. She can't quite figure out why and when they stopped winking at her and became like their mothers. There have been jokes about her ample bosom and she has tried not to mind - but deep down she would like acrylic nails and go to the Kings Head on a Friday night - but she never does - somehome it does not feel right. Despite the bubbly personality and the bold prints, Bev is desperately shy.

At the weekends Bev takes a Tai Chi class and shops in town. She spends time looking after her balcony plants and doing the Puzzler.

Bogden goes to medieval reinactment fastivals. He dresses up as a wandering minstrel and plays the mandolin.

His wife Beryl uses the time he's away to feed her bingo habit - woe betide anyone who sits in her "lucky" seat or - Heaven forfend - uses her "lucky" dibber

She can do 20 cards at once and thinks it's outrageous if a newbie wins

Idris is a Morris Dancer - he attends events and folk festivals up and down the country.

He then proceeds to give chapter and verse of Mumming and Morris Dancing myth and legend to poor Steve and Mike who popped in for a quick one on the way home .......

Landlords the length and breadth know of him and dim the lights, lock the doors when Idris is in the area ....

Idris just sighs and drives on to the next pub - unaware that phone calls have been made

Hilary ("Hil") lives in an immaculate ex-council house which she bought when she was promoted to supervisor in the university admissions office (in the days when it was still a polytechnic). Twenty-five years ago her brothers got hold of her b*stard lazy heavy-drinking husband and kicked his sorry ass out of town. After that she brought up the boys alone and is pleased that they still come home once a month with their bags of washing, because their girlfriends don't do it like Mum. She remains wary of men but likes it when Dave comes round and sorts out her plumbing. They swap mild innuendo and compare reminiscences from the 60s, although it's just a bit of fun because Dave and Ange are solid as a rock.

Hil collects soapstone sculptures, burns scented candles, and loves watching Formula One. She's ever so proud about giving up smoking but wonders if the three stone she put on mightn't be just as bad for her health. She used to drink a bottle of Chardonnay every night but recently switched to boxes, "because you can have a glass or two and then stop". Her dear old dog died last year and she misses him but can't face getting another. She would like to move to a smaller house but will never do this because she'll need the rooms when the boys come home, and anyway could never leave Don and Sylv next door.

Carole is truly fed up arranging flowers for other peoples weddings as Derek has yet to make the momentious decision of actually naming the day due to his mothers inability to live without her little soldier or allow "that so - called girlfriend of yours" to get her hands on Derek or her collection of figurines and thimbles.

She was only caught out when the Deputy Head (Ralph - wears Disney ties, keeps using the word 'cool'), complained that his copy of 'Debbie Does Darlington' didn't play properly.

The conversation was overheard by the school secretary (Karina - human version of a weasel with OCD), who informed the police.

But only after first establishing that Kelly was unwilling to give her a percentage of the profits.

Kelly spent 14 months in the detention centre. She was let out early because she pretended to find God, and she started a choir.

She is now dating Neville, who is training to be a priest, and whom she met when he came in to play the keyboards for her choir.

They have just got engaged.

Neville sends a percentage of his income to an orphanage in Zimbabwe.

It annoys Kelly a bit, but she hasn't said anything yet.

She also hasn't mentioned her previous run ins with the law, and her record of shoplifting, ABH, soliciting and burglary.
