Mumsnet seems to constantly be having a bashing in the media so I thought I'd come and see what all the fuss is about. Are you all cackling o'l know it all witches and woman scorned doing voodoo dances naked? wink

Should I run for the hills? grin

Fuck off. Not really have a cup of brew and a biscuit

Welcome. It's like Hotel California, you will never leave.

Lol at fuck off.

I also joined at a time when mumsne was in the media spotlight getting slagged off. That was 6 years ago.

Welcome btw.

If you have a partner prepare then to be ignored in tbe evening while you read active threads. My DH hates MN for this reason prepare your kids for being a little bit neglected too

It's highly addictive.

I also joined during the rockets into Lebanon period, and never returned to Babycentre.

I wonder if the Daily Mail realises that they're effectively running a MN recruitment drive?

Hi op

Welcome. It's good you have come to join our cult sect community. Of your own free will.

Sign here, please.

Hmmm. Intriguing nickname. Are you just a natural cynic or has your life so far been 'just one bloody thing after another' as Churchill apparently said? Either way, you'll fit right in.
