Bonzo/Juan plugging in and turning on mp3 makes no difference. Thanks anyways

oops sorry <<<<wheel-spins>>>>

BonzoDooDah Tue 19-Oct-10 23:39:19

OMG - DH has just pointed out that there is a racing driver named Juan Fangio I can feel a name-change coming on.

Oh and did any of the other reds get in a rage about the twatty idiot sales rep who gave the first sales talk - told us we could use the galaxy to "go to coffee mornings" (more than once) and then said of another car "good if your husband drives a long distances" angry ... I did have words with one of the other reps ...

Pinewood - did we discuss Mooncups then??

I should add that this was prompted by people (including me) using the disabled loo and not something I brought up out of the blue! I'm not a Mooncup evangalistgrin.

I know! I sat next to the lovely JenniferMumsnet on the coach, as we were in the same group.

Will look out for you next time! (There will be a lovely party at Christmas, with lots of champagne flowing for us all, won't there?)

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 19-Oct-10 11:48:58

BIWI - I kept looking out for you, as you've been involved in other projects (and I think I've met you before?!) and wanted to say hi - think I caught a glimpse of you getting into the taxi. But am sorry not to have spoken. It all went so quickly!

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 19-Oct-10 11:45:04

It was frustrating not knowing/feeling you couldn't ask who other MNetters were!

Pinewood Tue 19-Oct-10 06:17:06

Thanks Bonzo will try it too and let you know how we get on

shakingleaf Mon 18-Oct-10 22:48:43

thnaks bonzo will give it a go and report back.

People with possibly faulty mp3 players ... have you tried turning them on when connected to the PC? Mine gave an error but once it was switched on it was ok.

Hi! Fab to finally figure out two of my fellow White members - Pinkem (the nice lady!) and Lynette (gorgeous hair, fab boots!). I wish I'd chatted more, I didn't want to seem too forward and pushy!

vnmum Mon 18-Oct-10 11:28:33

Pinewood You told me about wanting to convert your DH in the Loos at breakfast

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 18-Oct-10 11:05:17

Official feedback thread just started here - thanks

Pinewood Mon 18-Oct-10 08:02:05

vnmum - I think I'm the one in Red Group you mean and nope didn't manage to convert my hubby ... although he was impressed with the Kuga probably cos he was another one that chucked it through the cones with wild abandoment! I swear the whiplash has only just worn off confused

JenniferMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 17-Oct-10 19:54:57

Lady in Red, ah yes roundabouts - I just liked the Mondeo so much I just wanted to keep driving all the way back to North London !

vnmum Sun 17-Oct-10 14:39:55

Malificence any chance you could put the film on here or something? would love to see it.

BOOamireally Sun 17-Oct-10 12:37:50

Silverfrog thanks grin Was possibly the only non-Boden item I was wearing wink You are definitely 'you' if your hubby was tinkering with his ringtones just before the welcome speech grin

Headlessladybiscuit <wave> Hello! Amanderr your hubby and his friend were awesome, they were seriously trying to tip the Kuga over and got a massive round of applause grin
