Morning all,

So today's the day , we have the [gin] and cake at the ready and five lovely MNetters are coming in for a visit.
CecyHall , ChaosTrulyReigns, PotatoPolly, FaceLikeAFriendlyApple and Solo will be joining us between 10am and 3pm today.
Sadly Nevergoogle, at 38 weeks, didn't want to risk a live birth thread grin and Hansolo had an unbreakable appointment but we hope they will watch on with interest.

We will pop back to this thread throughout the day and update what they are up to and they may very well post too.

If you have any burning questions about MNHQ then please do post and we will try and answer them.

I would have thought it was a bit early even for you Rebecca to be starting on the [gin] already. cake I can understand!

Kudzugirl Wed 26-Mar-14 09:07:16

Gordons Gin?

Truly shocking lapse in taste HQ......

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 26-Mar-14 09:07:40

KatesMumsnet has made creme egg brownies - too early?

EthelDorothySusan Wed 26-Mar-14 09:08:56

Wow what will you be like by the end, if the gin is out already?

The gin is not open ... yet

magimedi Wed 26-Mar-14 09:23:42

Surely the gin opens at 10am to welcome them?

V bad form not to give them a wine

NymodigFruOla Wed 26-Mar-14 10:42:25

Me too, Yoni! Perhaps we could join them for lunch and wine grin

Having a chat with PatrickMumsnet about academy - cake

BeverleyMoss Wed 26-Mar-14 10:52:49

Is PatrickMumsnet your work experience lad?

IamtheZombie Wed 26-Mar-14 10:59:21

Zombie is not envy.

No, she really isn't.

Not in the slightest.

NymodigFruOla Wed 26-Mar-14 10:59:52

PatrickMumsnet has been at MNHQ for a while, I remember seeing his photo on the 'Movember' thread in 2012.

mistlethrush Wed 26-Mar-14 11:00:39

Zombie - you should have packed off an eye to Chaos so that you could have a sneeky peek...

Ooh, so what's it like so far everyone? (except me and Zombie envy)

Are there many people about?

or are they just straggling in now after last night's gin and creme egg brownie session?

Or perhaps they're claiming that all this is just in your honour ?!

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 26-Mar-14 11:10:12

We've moved on to a chat with SarahMumsnet about content and editorial.

Sparklingbrook Wed 26-Mar-14 11:12:59

Anyone's ears burning? grin

BoreOfWhabylon Wed 26-Mar-14 11:18:30

Will the young visiters be permitted to wield the Banhammer?

With pictures please.

NymodigFruOla Wed 26-Mar-14 11:21:18

Not mine, Sparkling

Sparklingbrook Wed 26-Mar-14 11:22:03

grin Fru.

IamtheZombie Wed 26-Mar-14 11:52:37

They've gone awfully quiet...

mistlethrush Wed 26-Mar-14 11:53:51

That's because they've opened the [gin] to go with the chocolate brownies and all the cakes in front of Patrick

ExitPursuedByABear Wed 26-Mar-14 11:59:37
