I'm super new to this, please can someone explain what all the abbreviations mean!?

Such as, DH, DS, DS, AIBU? Yanbu?

Welcome to MN!

Here's a link to the most common ones.

I've had to bookmark it ;-)

Those lists aren't quite comprehensive, last time I looked it was missing a few of the sweary ones.

Another tip for the super new - a piece of unwritten etiquette (which you couldn't possibly be expected to know!) is that generally if you want to refer to another poster who is participating in a thread, just bold their name or part thereof eg I'd generally be Errol rather than using the @ which sends an email notification. It's useful if you want to make someone aware of a thread they're not on but is a bit irritating otherwise. smile

That is good to know,* Errol*, I definitely don't want everybody I mention getting an email notification - I'd rather not be that person!

Thank you for your help grin
