Hello, I've been quite a long time 'lurker' but have finally plucked up the courage to join mumsnet! To be honest, this is my very first internet post ever and I'm a bit scared. I'm not a mother yet, but would dearly love to join y'all on the pregnancy boards someday. In the meantime I'll probably be found on the 'Weight loss chat', 'Style and beauty', and 'Money matters' boards. Not sure why anyone would care but there you go. Too plastered to take it back now smile. Yes, I needed dutch courage to do this! (I suppose you'll find me on general health and addiction support too?) smilesad Thanks so much for reading this far, I appreciate it very much! flowers Flower power! biscuit (my biscuit means yummy happy friendly treat for you) xx LiquoriceW

Hello, Liquorice!

Thanks for introducing yourself flowers

A warm welcome to Mumsnet. We're so pleased to hear that you've plucked up the courage to join.

There are so many topics to choose from, we're sure you'll find more as you go along.

Thanks for the biscuit - might have already scoffed a few too many today... <hides wrappers>

On Mumsnet, the biscuit emoticon usually translates to 'no comment'. You're more than welcome to hand out cake! cake which literally just means cake!

If you ever need anything, do give us a shout.

Hello wishparry!

Yes, this site really is wonderful. There are so many intelligent, funny, kind, (naughty!) posters on here and I've learned so much from them. They are like fairy godmothers - always knowing the right things to say to help others posters out of a sticky spot!

Hello also new to the site. Just started reading some of the threads around dealing with difficult family situations at Christmas... which made me feel better that I am not the only one with such issues. Really interesting site
