DD2 just told me that she thinks they are talking about mumsnet on This Morning, only they called it netmums...??? (She said they were saying it was mums from all over the country helping out with advice etc so it sounds more like MN). Anybody else watching? (DD2 has day off, I am far too busy sort-of working !)

no, netmums is lots of locally based groups - I gat emails from the Rotherham one.

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:19:23

they are on about antiques now Janh

gingerbear Tue 22-Feb-05 12:19:38

They have stuff about local Toddler groups, surestart, sales etc.

and micheal from the west midlands is guessing the price of clocks
now its jackie in aberdeen

and....

When she said they'd said netmums I told her what that is, but she still said their description sounded more like mumsnet....

Sorry, Keane, she probably only rang me after they'd stopped talking about it, grrr.

(Are you named after the band btw?)

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:21:42

and micheal has won all three clocks

dont think he is from west mids though, think I have that wrong

Or Roy?

JanH Tue 22-Feb-05 12:22:07

Or Robbie even (clutching at straws!)?

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:22:27

Hello janh, I'm FIO

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:23:00

yes named after the band, lol

RTKangaMummy Tue 22-Feb-05 12:23:27

deffo said netmums

Marina Tue 22-Feb-05 12:24:31

That lead singer has to be one of the plainest guys I have ever seen, bless him. Come on Fio, stick with the FFs and go for chiselled Franz Ferdinand instead!

JanH Tue 22-Feb-05 12:25:01

FIO?????

You little monkey - when did that happen?

(DS2 lurrrves Keane, you will be his friend for life!)

Kanga, did they mean netmums though?

ooops!

He is truly un-sexy, isn't he, Marina - can't even move really - lovely voice though.

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:26:31

oh Marina i could never be Franz Ferdinand after hearing them live

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:26:59

I quite fancy him

piffle Tue 22-Feb-05 12:31:26

me too fio
Franz F - am I the only one NOT to get their music and scratch my head about it all?
And I consider myself hip ish

Marina Tue 22-Feb-05 12:35:26

Mr Keane is talented but a bit too plaintive for my liking. And all this old blah about the "originality" of their line-up...Ben Folds Five anyone? Helloooo?
So FF were crap then were they Fio?
Maybe you are more of a Scissor Sisters gal Piffle? That's a band I have gone off a bit after their orgy of ridiculousness at the Brits, but the album is fab.

The whole reason I discovered mumsnet is because my mum told me about netmums and in my babybrained way I typed the web address in wrong and voila! Mumsnet!

jo72 Tue 22-Feb-05 12:35:52

Saw the This Morning thing myself and it was like listening to what I have been going through in the past 6 months. I have just had a peek and there is another site called netmums. Looks interesting

Keane Tue 22-Feb-05 12:39:39

Ben Folds Five??? who???????????

no i dont rate FranzFerdinand either, esp not live, they are shockingly awful but thats just my opinion and I am hard to please

horseshoe Tue 22-Feb-05 12:40:09

Yes there is another site called NETMUMS...not nearly as good as MUMSNET though

jo72 Tue 22-Feb-05 12:41:52
