To be a bit miffed that just when I decide to start actually posting a bit on Mumsnet instead of just lurking, it suddenly seems much quieter than it used to be.

Is it me, or is it quieter than usual?

Don't take it personally. It was manic earlier, my convo kept falling off the bottom every couple of minutes. Everyone's probably exhausted smile

I think its quieter than usual, the same conversations have been in active convos for three nights, its normally much quicker.

It is very quiet at the moment.

Everyone's busy sewing on nametags.

Iron-on nametags?

At Snice Towers we use the time honoured method of writing the child's name with a biro on the back of the washing instruction label. I am either very common or very lazy.

differentID Mon 08-Sep-08 22:54:20

good point, going to check it. bbs

cornsilk Mon 08-Sep-08 22:54:31

or even both?

Overmydeadbody Mon 08-Sep-08 22:57:22

IDoEverything Mon 08-Sep-08 22:59:32

Woah.... Full blown fisticuff on my thread??! shock

Didn't even think it was a particularly outrageous subject either.

WilfSell Mon 08-Sep-08 23:00:37


pull yerself together, woman.

FrockHorror Mon 08-Sep-08 23:00:41

lol @ biro name tags

snice Mon 08-Sep-08 23:01:43

I have woven name tags too bought in a rush of PFB madness before the start of reception. I gave up on them half way through Yr1 when I realised no-one (i.e. other mummies) will ever know.

differentID Mon 08-Sep-08 23:01:51

just trying to liven it up for you! wink

cornsilk Mon 08-Sep-08 23:07:01

I embroider(sp) my chn's names onto their clothes. Name tags are for slatterns.

snice's children will think their full name is dc surname made in taiwan © Johnny Boden and his simpering crew

You can superglue nametapes on.
The glue goes a bit hard in the wash, so don't do somewhere rubby.
But tis glue all the way for blazer and coats and that.
