I am scared by namechangers

Ooooh i have it and LOVE it

Am reading for toddler tips on psycho 20 month old. Will report in detail with hopeful success stories later. Well that or will be rocking in the corner with gin bottle (again) hugging the laptop.

I was 'celeb' MN spotting, bragging to friends with lots of "oh yes, i have chatted to her before"

I haven't had so many names (this one is awful). About 3 significant ones in the last 40,000 years. Am not so scary really, mp.

Come on. That's all we all want to know.

It's like one of those love-in threads, but published. It's all gonna go off.

Oh that's not fair

DebiTheScot · 04/02/2009 14:18

DebInAustria did you know that you're in it? I was flicking for names I recognised and almost got excited when I saw the start of your name! Not that I have ever said anything worthy of putting in a book!

DebInAustria · 04/02/2009 14:20

I'm not am I - OMG, what did I say that was worth the ink? Sorry you got all excited, us having such popular names

DebInAustria · 04/02/2009 14:30

come on Debiscot - where are you when I need you?

ps - love the bump in the wetsuit!

WhatFreshHellIsThis · 04/02/2009 14:55

Sniff - I ordered mine from Waterstone's and they tell me they don't have it in stock. Has there been a mad rush on it? Have you sold out already?

I demand to have my copy couriered to me right this second. I feel left out.

HelenMumsnet · 04/02/2009 15:00

WhatFreshHellIsThis: We're a bit puzzled by what Waterstone's told you.

Could you possibly forward their email to you ([email protected])? And then we'll shout at someone investigate...

DebiTheScot · 04/02/2009 15:03

sorry DebInAustria I'll go and look now

DebiTheScot · 04/02/2009 15:04

something about skiing I think

DebiTheScot · 04/02/2009 15:06

yes- I haven't been skiing for about 7 years and never with children so how I thought there was any chance of it being me I don't know!

It was a bit about getting goggles to stop eyes running and if you get sunglasses to make sure its the wraparound ones that won't fall off. page 300

DebInAustria · 04/02/2009 15:10

Thanks Deb - that it made the book!
