Whenever I see stuff about the Mumsnet Founders, Justine and Carrie (as per the feature about the Red Award today...) I always think 'What happened to Rachel?' so I thought I'd ask.....

I'm sure when MN was set up there were three 'founders' weren't there?

So what happened? Do tell....

Too bad I can't spell Mumsnet.... (too much wone, and it's only 7.30 p.m. !)

Didn't she elope with Ross?

Too much wine.... aargH!

Did Justine and Carrie leave the gate open when they let original Tech out to NY?

Or was she offered up as a human sacrifice when all the SWMNBN business was going on?

they're on a break.

Maybe she runs the website On The Other Side

Hello. And lol at patio question.

Rachel is still very much here. In fact, she was in MN Towers today gossiping with the rest of us working on very important, high-level stuff.

Mmmmmm Rather a quick retort for my liking <suspicious emoticon>

I'm picturing a "Home Alone" scene with the rest of MNHQ moving a cardboard cutout of Rachel in front of the window to make it look as though she's still there.

It's just that she used to be on all the photos.... and well.... now she's sort of disappeared....
LOL too at the patio question!

They had an architect spotted in MNHQ recently. Helen admitted it HERE

I think you will wake up in the shower and it will all have been a dream.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 04-Nov-09 22:13:01

How else do you think we built the patio, ABetaDad?

Are you finding site stuff a little busy tonight?

Swedes2Turnips0 Wed 04-Nov-09 22:19:51

Rachel is going to be the weather girl on Mumsnet TV.

Is Rachel the one on the left in the logo? Perhaps the baby shot her?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 04-Nov-09 22:24:37

Too right, Norma!

I dunno, you go watch Spooks and come back to 2400 threads about biscuits...

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 04-Nov-09 22:58:41

Oi geezers Rachel is definitely still around - she's our reviews editor in fact, but not and never a founder - she joined about a year and a half in when Carrie was on maternity leave and has been locked in ever since...

NormaStanleyFletcher Wed 04-Nov-09 23:00:24

Justine - did you have a good night at the awards thing?

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 04-Nov-09 23:16:04

It was really fun actually - a big fat girly love-in with scones and jam.

Jo Wiley and Jools Oliver all chic in towering heels. Me and Caz teetering in our flats. Lovely Sarah Brown with her stunning eyes and sagely gravitas. My mum getting all over excited at being in the same room as people from the the Telly.

Wish you all could have been there!

Oh that sounds good. Well done on the award.

Do you have something indescribable made of glass and granite to put on he mantlepiece in mn towers?
