I was on the tube yesterday standing up and a women was sitting beside me looking at some papers and making notes. The papers had a Mumsnet heading but didn't seem to be a printout from Mumsnet IYSWIM. They looked like the results of a survey or a list of statistics. Saw 'currently employed' and 'newcomers'. AIBU unreasonable to have been curious and quite excited to have spotted this. What does everyone think she was up to?

A spy. My money is on her being employed by M15 or something. Which part of London was it?

Just outside of Holburn IIRC

Could she have been an employee looking at the site statistics - doing a bit of research. You get asked some standard questions when you join MN and she was probably a researcher looking at the stats. that's my guess anyway. Or a female James (Janet?) Bond, spy lady?

She is spy for Netmums grin

CristinaTheAstonishing Tue 07-Dec-10 13:01:05

Isn't a mummyleak what you get if you laugh or cough after having children?
