Hello all, I've been posting on here for just 10 short weeks and after killing a couple of threads today, I decided that I'd better do the decent thing and introduce myself properly!

I'm 34 (I think!)have 2 gorgeous dd's aged 4.10 and 1.10, I'm a SAHM having been a secondary school teacher in a former life, until I saw the light.
Born and bred in Cheshire, love Manchester City, red wine and cups of tea (not always in that order!) and I am addicted to MN already. (especially word association and 'the bar' threads!)

Welcome Lucycat! I have 2 dds also - 3 and 1 yr.
Are you thinking of having another?

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 13:54:32

Nope quite happy with my 2! it's the practical things like a 3 bed house / small car oh yes and sleep of course! Now we've got it back I'm not losing it again!!
What about you almost?

littlemissbossy Tue 22-Feb-05 13:56:54

A Man City supporter - oh well I suppose they've got to have at least one!
Welcome to mumsnet

It's constantly in my mind - to have a third or not to - that is the question. . . DH really wanted another, but as time passes, he's going off the idea, I think. I'm 38 and feel like I don't have much time, but am happy with the status quo. I've also been killing a lot of threads lately. Don't know why.

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 14:01:47

Perhaps it's when we post! a quiet time, either that or what I type isn't very exciting!! and people can't be bothered to respond.

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 14:09:38

I've killed my own thread - how sad. Is it too early to open the wine?

kernowcat Tue 22-Feb-05 14:11:02

probably how about tea and cake?

almost40 Tue 22-Feb-05 14:11:40

Sorry, Lucycat. I'll do the honors of killing your thread. I was busy on the Le Creuset thread. I'm the U.S. and am at work right now, so no wine for me . . . yet.

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 14:13:43

Ok then tea and cake it is - probably wouldn't be great to go to collect dd1 from school drunk! - that would get them talking in the playground though!

Whereabouts in the US are you? Couldn't give KateandtheGirls a nudge could you?

littlemissbossy Tue 22-Feb-05 14:14:46

LOL it's never too early to open the wine IMO

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 14:17:35

Ok then I'll let it breathe while I go to school! should be just right for a bar thread this evening!!

almost40 Tue 22-Feb-05 14:17:40

I'm in our nation's capital - land of the horrid Dubyah Bush - far north of Florida, but in the same time zone. I think KATG is probably enjoying that box of condoms right now.

LMB, a little cyber-wine at work just after breakfast can't hurt, can it?

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 14:19:30

Nice to chat almost. Got to get dd2 out of bed or she'll never go to sleep this evening! See you soon.

Are you a 'real' American or an ex-pat?

almost40 Tue 22-Feb-05 14:21:21

I'm the 'real' thing, not an ex-pat. Go get DD2 then, and we'll pass a bottle around and welcome you to mumsnet after you return. I'm sure I'll still be here. . .

Lucycat Tue 22-Feb-05 19:14:54

Sorry I didn't get back sooner, but I can't have the computer on when dd2 is around as she wants to 'do puter too'!! Sun's over the yardarm here so the bottle's open!

Dahlia Tue 22-Feb-05 19:26:27

Hi Lucycat, do you still live up North then? I live in south manchester.

Frizbe Tue 22-Feb-05 19:31:06

Hello lucycat, can't stop as off out in a bit, but hi anyway!

marthamoo Tue 22-Feb-05 19:35:59

Very pleased to make your acquaintance, Lucycat (that's me being formal in response to your formal introduction).

Technically, I'm a City fan too (but really that was a decision made at the age of 10 to give my brother and I yet another thing to fight about - he's a lifelong Red). I'm born and bred in Manchester and live in Cheshire now, Macclesfield to be precise.

See you around!

Xena Tue 22-Feb-05 19:51:26

Hi Lucycat I'm fairly new too although its my 2nd name (sophie10) and am also addicted to MNet

Lucycat Wed 23-Feb-05 12:30:21

Dahlia, yes I do still live 'up north' Stockport to be precise, not that far from Macclesfield really Marthamoo!

Being a City fan seems to be something that you have no control over - it's inbred! It makes life hard though sometimes - that's when the red wine comes in handy

katierocket Wed 23-Feb-05 12:46:44

hello lucycat - I'm stockport way too. (I'm also marthamoo's stalker but that's another story )

Lucycat Wed 23-Feb-05 12:51:43

Do you stalk her in RL or just on MN? is she a worthy stalkee? Can anybody do it? Is there a club? poor marthamoo she'll be getting paranoid now

katierocket Wed 23-Feb-05 12:53:02

no I only stalk her on MN but I do want to go and live in Rainow which is obviously fairly near to Macc and then I could stalk her in RL too! Feel free to join in.
