I've a dd aged 2.5 and used Mumsnet quite a lot for advice in the early days. Have found myself increasingly drawn back as am expecting again and seems rude not to say hi before probably bombarding people with questions!

Ay-up, from Melton Mowbray! I have a 22 month old ds. There's quite a few East-Midlanders now!

Am from Wigston - 4 kids dd12, dd8, ds6 and ds 4 mths. Feeling slightly frazzled around the edges. Where in Leicester are you?

Small world - just down the road in Oadby! I think I kind of assumed mumsnetters were all in the SE!

<<<<<I think most of them are from the south east, I feel very much the bumpkin round here sometimes!>>>>>

KathH Wed 02-Feb-05 22:36:26

they probably think Leicester's oop north!

They think we all spend our days slaughtering foxes and making pies out of the remains, yukyukyuk.

Not that I've got am inferiority complex or anything.....

Whetstone here!

Sorry, this made me lol, I'm from the south east and you're quite right most people think anywhere past the M25 is up north. We even have a thing about north londoners!!!

Just to reassure you I'm not quite so narrow minded my dad owned a transport co. so I've been virtually all over the country and to show how open minded I really am for a SE london girl, my dh is from Wales and thankfully that's where the outlaws still live

Colditzmum, you do don't you?!!!! Still can't be worse than SE london's traditional pie & mash, at least you know what's in your pies

Nice to see there are more Mumsnetters in and around Leicester thee days ( I was an avid mumsnetter 2-3 years ago then had a break)as there were never enough to even get a meet up properly off the ground in the old days...
I'm in between Leics and Melton. dd is 4 and I'm pregnant.
