    Hello everyone. I've been on MN for as long as I can remember, and usually found it a light hearted and interesting diversion for over a cup of tea. In the last two days I've had a horribly snippy reply to a report "we think it is not goady" and of course the official reprimand last night, which has really upset me. I feel like lots of other little things in this new world, stepping away from there has to be a really positive change for me.

    Lovely to see you all!

    A friend had miniatures of rhubarb and ginger gin as favours at her wedding. It was lovely! I have not tried sucking it out of a cushion though. Something to add to the "to do" list.

    I'm trying a judicious name change. Apologies for using you all as my guinea pigs...

    Nope. Failed. Can anyone help?

    I'm not getting much back from MNHQ other than "we are looking in to it, please report" etc.

    Hello there, all of you MN refugees. :)
    There are places on TES you don't want to go to too. However a lot of us are lovely people and are happy to see some old/new posters. :):):)

    Makes me want to see this there Lily. :mad:

    Right, gosh this has changed since I was last here!
    This is my new "non professional" username for tes.
    I'm one of the ones who have written out my notice letter all ready to hand in..

    When I've finished for the day I'm going to go and see who is still about. In my day it was EmilyStrange, Blazer, Grandelf, Belledujour, Samjam, Jude, JRTowner,... and guinesspuss, of course :D

    Gosh, so many more names I'm thinking of. Tonight's plan is gin and TES.

    Emily & Belle are here. Some of the others may be in alter ego format.

    • Never been a member of Mumsnet. Probably had my children too early, but I certainly remember the name tangerinecat. :)

    I'm not a parent but I am an occasional Mumsnet lurker and I've posted on a few of those staffroom threads in support recently. Definitely seeing some familiar TES usernames here. You never think of having bumped into the same person on two different websites; how funny.

    Another TES virgin but I do have a sign in that I opened in 2014 apparently. I'm from over there and the one who got on a bit of a perry fuelled self righteous essay writing trip last night.

    That would be most threads on Personal.

    Emily, Blazer Jude and gp are still here. along with Belle. And I think someone who had a name like 'Figgy pudding' is back with a new name.

    To change your name you''ll need to contact the tes helpdesk or one of the mods. Quickest way, strange as it seems is to 'Report' yourself and get straight on to whichever mod is currently on duty.

    Grandelf! I remember you! :)

    So that’s official then. MNHQ don’t think the threads are goady and are obviously in support of them. Even non teacher posters can see they are goady! Sigh.

    I posted on here a lot when I was having a rough time at a school. I lost 3 stone through stress. It took me a long time (years, in fact) to see that it was the school and not me. Part of that was down to my new school, which is a great place to work, and partly down to the people on TES.
