I read a thread once where someone said that Mumsnet is like crack, only more addictive.

Me too! I have to make sure I am really strict with myself usually.

As I am currently confined to keeping my leg up, I have the perfect excuse to sit on the laptop feeding my MN addiction whilst dh is running round trying to get the kids organised for bed AND keep up with the housework!!!!

It is addictive, very very addictive. You have to make yourslef get off.

<stands up>
"Hello my name is Sorrel and I am addicted to Mumsnet"

Actually have been at home with sick dd today and couldn't go out, but i have been on here all day instead of weeding the borders or sorting out drawers or some other thing i used to do before hideous addiction..............

trace2 Fri 03-Jun-05 20:03:13

qe what op did you have,? great excuse.

jessicasmummy Fri 03-Jun-05 20:06:30

i have a horrendus addiction too - spent at least 6 hours on here today!

QueenEagle Fri 03-Jun-05 20:08:19

Had op to repair a partial rupture to my anterior cruciate ligament.

Yes it's a great excuse to do nothing apart from sit with laptop but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone - I'm sure there's far less extreme measures which can be used to get out of housework!!!

I think it was Caligula who said it was like crack only more addictive.........

sorrel Fri 03-Jun-05 20:09:06

LGJ Fri 03-Jun-05 20:40:25


My ds calls the computer "the girls"

QueenEagle Fri 03-Jun-05 20:44:08

Thought I was bad spending hours on MN but it's worse when I'm on the phone to a fellow MNer - whole days slip by once Spacecadet gets going!!!!!!

Only joking SC - I love our chats really!

QueenEagle Fri 03-Jun-05 20:58:37

Ooooops, looks like I killed another thread then!

trace2 Fri 03-Jun-05 21:02:26

trace2 Fri 03-Jun-05 21:19:04

from reading mostof threads there is a lot of help and advice out there, lets keep it up

Mads1 Fri 03-Jun-05 22:16:03

Hi! I only discovered MN a few days ago and within such a short time I am hooked!! As soon as DD goes down for her sleep I'm on here like a shot until I hear her wake up!!

I only use to come on the computer 2-3 times a week.Now it's left on all day cos I'm on and off it!!

It's also great to sit and express to (ie breast milk not opinions!), which is what i do at this time every night.
