Well done Clumsy, you have kept most of MN on the edge of their seats all day. Quite a result for a newbie! Congatulations!!!

I know but maybe it's a bit fishy that two posters have come on saying they're the other mum.

Although I quite liked clumsy and I'm leaning towards believing her

oh right. i dont know TBh the whole thing is ODD! not saying it's all made up. i did think clumsy was genuine and still do but the whole thing is really strange. i think the spoof thread jsut threw another spanner in the works without that being the intention.

Odd but strangely addictive! I've spent way to much time on here today.

Is it true mnhq was down? If so It probably wouldn't have got this far if they had been up and running

Gah I only read the first few pages before it pffft - so was it definitely clumsy that coffeedog was talking about? I take it coffeedog never arrived too busy packing for emigration

I was agog then pffffft it crashed the iPhone app as it was deleted!

IAmSoFuckingRock Thu 22-Nov-12 02:02:31

very addictive. if i could bottle whatever it is makes MN so addictive i would be a rich woman!

i think i heard whisperings that they were down earlier. i think clumsy will be back with an update though. she seemed to like this place once she'd stuck around a bit mad woman grin

no confirmation or denial so we are still waiting with baited breath.

lisad123 Thu 22-Nov-12 02:13:24

Damn missed all the fun!!

Moominsarescary Thu 22-Nov-12 02:16:01

She did come across very reasonable, I'm not sure I'd have been so understanding if it was me!

Maybe she will post what happens. Now I'm going to have to spend more time on here looking out for it incase mnhq delete. If it's possible to spend more time than I am already

Bizarre, though timely for me as another school mum approached me about a joint party for our DD's 6th birthday as their parties clashed last year. This has re-unforced my decision to say no and organise our own!

Softlysoftly Thu 22-Nov-12 06:39:09

I read through until 6pm then didn't come back, it all seemed fine, why would they lock and delete? What did I miiiiiisss???

PM please!

TiggerWearsATriteSmile Thu 22-Nov-12 06:46:46

I had to speed read last night through most of it.
Welcome Clumsy. I hope your DD has a very Happy Birthday.

Southsearocks Thu 22-Nov-12 06:56:20

I got in from Fat Club last night and had to speed read and keep refreshing the page (well, pages what with multiple thread goings-on) before it got dissaperated. Welcome Clumsy! Hope it all gets sorted for you both smile

Something I learned a while back. Switch your preferences to single continuous page rather than multi page wink
No chance of a thread going poof while waiting for next page to load grin

Frontpaw Thu 22-Nov-12 07:06:25

There's a Radio 4 play in this! Most amusing (even if I'm not 100% convinced that it's true!)

AViewfromtheFridge Thu 22-Nov-12 07:09:15

Aaaahh...I saw those two threads and thought it was just one of those weird thread juxtapositions, so didn't bother clicking. Dammit!

CanIHaveAPetGiraffePlease Thu 22-Nov-12 07:16:36

Oh I'd love to have seen the 'other' side. Do we know if she turned up with cake or not?

TheOneWithTheHair Thu 22-Nov-12 07:19:58

Welcome Clumsy if you're reading this. Good luck at the gates this morning if you're reading this. smile

Why was the other deleted?

Well I´m glad it was sorted out & hope both parties go OK.

Although the other mum imo deserves not to have a bouncy castle & entertainer show up I hope that that doesn´t happen for the kid´s sakes.

But really, if you were having a joint party & the other mum booked such stuff through relatives-why would you start to ignore them & risk that stuff being cancelled??

Hope it´s not to do with illness or some family emergency on the part of the other mum.

Dillydollydaydream Thu 22-Nov-12 07:29:42

There's a thread in aibu. Apparently Clumsy I throwing her own party for her dd?

lionheart Thu 22-Nov-12 15:59:38

pss ... isn't this a fred about a fred about a fred ...

QueenofNightmares Thu 22-Nov-12 16:28:08

The other was deleted because Olivia is a party pooper grin well she said that MN felt it was a situation better sorted in real life but everyone disagreed and took the hump with her.

lionheart Thu 22-Nov-12 16:46:55

She does have a point but it was late and she was running out of gin and thinking about chocolate, so it doesn't really count as a cold light of day fred deletion.

SauvignonBlanche Thu 22-Nov-12 16:53:25

Aww, I was dying to know what happened.

TheCatIsEatingIt Thu 22-Nov-12 21:12:05

OK, so the update thread's gone now. What happened there?
