What IS the #SecretThing that Mummy Barrow, Mammasaurus and The Alexander Residence are on about?!

Top blogging trio Mammasaurus, Penny from The Alexander Residence and Mummy Barrow have put their heads together and come up with a thing.  This thing is a #secretthing - all we know is it's got something to do with Comic Relief, whose 25th anniversary is (unbelievably) this Tuesday. 

The trio so far have kept completely, infuriatingly schtum. Although they've all tweeted and blogged about it (read their posts here), they've managed not to let the cat out of the bag - apparently, they're going to reveal all on Thursday, so watch this space.

In the meantime, to prevent ourselves from exploding with anticipation, we're amusing ourselves at Mumsnet Bloggers HQ by trying to guess what the #secretthing might be. 

So what the jeff IS it? Over to you...

grin Just noticed this, will email. Also looking forward to the nekkidness and presuming mnhq will be joining in in solidarity wink

KateMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 31-Jan-13 11:27:46

Tee arf. We will see what we can do.

KateMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 31-Jan-13 11:27:02

PS Against stiff competition, the most tea was snorted on MBHQ keyboards in response to Craftsonsea's naked abseiling down Mumsnet Towers <crampons face>.

No-one got close to the real secret - so TLP gets the second copy as runner-up. Do email us at with your addresses, and we'll get those out to you.

I can't get over how amazing this is! I am so so proud of my lovely blogging friends.

Tee2072 Thu 31-Jan-13 10:05:37

It's been announced and WOW!!!!

Craftsonsea Thu 31-Jan-13 09:22:29

Mummy Barrow I am starting to think that you and I move in quite different social circles! I, on the other hand, know the name of almost everyone locally that would hold a conversation with a microwave. Looking forward to the big reveal grin

MummyBarrow Thu 31-Jan-13 09:07:03

Well craftonsea I am friends with Sally Bercow so if there was to be nakedness during Prime Minister's Questions it would fairly easy to have arranged.

Just saying.

katese11 Thu 31-Jan-13 08:30:42

no! i'm at buggyfit at 10....then mad dash to baby cinema....will have to try and check on the way!

mummyglitzer Thu 31-Jan-13 07:23:41

I have been promised no nakedness!

mummyglitzer Thu 31-Jan-13 07:22:43

So MummyBarrow has confirmed that the #secretthing will be announced at 10am.

Anyone just a little bit excited?!

katese11 Wed 30-Jan-13 19:48:04

OK, it's to do with bloggers and involves travel... I think the ladies are going to act like rednose Santas and leave novelty rednoses up and down the country. Then the bloggers need to find them and blog it! Naked santas, obv....

Craftsonsea Wed 30-Jan-13 19:30:47

Didn't Annie run into the sea naked for Save The Children last year? On that grounds I think the #secretthing must involve nakedness, it simply must to get into The Big Mammasaurus Book Of Good Ideas. Possibly some nakedness during Prime Ministers Question Time or naked abseiling, maybe down Mumsnet Tower. Perhaps Mumsnet would like to show their support for that and join in? KateMumsnet do you want to be the one to ask Justine??!

ILoveDolly Wed 30-Jan-13 18:42:56

I have no idea what #secretthing might be but I am so excited about it my teeny section of blogoverse is virtually oscillating.

MummyBarrow Wed 30-Jan-13 18:07:25

oh IzzieA If only... if only..... <sigh>

IzzieA Wed 30-Jan-13 15:56:03

Is it a blind date with Harry from One Direction? Inspired by Fifty Shades perhaps?? Hope I haven't let the cat out of the bag!!

mummyglitzer Wed 30-Jan-13 12:33:22

Ha ha ha! I am loving TLP guess!

The #secretthing is literally keeping me awake at night and I'm not even involved!

MummyBarrow Wed 30-Jan-13 12:16:35

I like this. I like this alot. We will also throw in something from the trip.

Tee2072 Wed 30-Jan-13 11:09:01

Pics on that last part, Kate, or it didn't happen!!

KateMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 30-Jan-13 10:29:20

We're probably not able to do a Paypal thingy on here <jobsworth>.

BUT we do have a couple of boxfresh copies of Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson, AKA The Bloggess. It's very funny.

Let's say one to go to the closest answer, and another to the one which makes the Bloggers team snort the greatest volume of tea over their keyboards.

Tee2072 Wed 30-Jan-13 09:17:05

Buy a gift? A clue?

MummyBarrow Tue 29-Jan-13 22:30:35

thelovingparent ooh that sounds good. Would you?

Was also thinking we could buy a gift whilst doing our thing and the person who gets closest could win it?

TheLovingParent Tue 29-Jan-13 22:22:19

That could be a great fundraiser in itself! £1 per entry, via PayPal. Count me in. Happy to help set it up. smile

KateMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 29-Jan-13 22:19:34

TLP - genius. It's got us thinking that a little competition for best suggestion might be in order...
