Hello newbies and lurkers!

Actually I'm a lurker really, but I do peek my head out and post occasionally and everyone is lovely!

Hello from mainly a lurker
Vodka please Queen

IndianaMoleWoman · 12/06/2017 19:49

I lurked since 2011, when we decided to try for a baby in 2012. Finally had the guts to post when DD1 came along in 2014 and am now also the proud owner of DD2 for good measure.

I have laughed, cried (and laughed until I've cried), worried for people's safety, health and sanity, been told off like a naughty school kid and had some cracking advice. All from a bunch of strangers. Can't beat it (so join it!)

Hello I'm a lurker and occasionally post. Will you make mine a double Gin

Teaformeplease · 12/06/2017 19:54

I've been lurking for a while and have now joined Blush. I already spend too much time on Facebook should I be worried about even more time wasted on here? Grin

QueenofEsgaroth · 12/06/2017 20:05

Hi engine, it's in the freezer, help yourself and top mine up while your at it - long vodka all the way Grin

If you want to start somewhere check the classics out, that's where I started. Just brilliant Grin
