Hello.

We'd like to invite you to our very first Mumsnet Twitter party, tonight at 8.30pm.

Seeing as it's a Friday night, our theme is wine. Natch.

And our special guest Helen McGinn, author of The Knackered Mother's Wine Club, will be Tweeting some seriously useful wine tips and advice.

All you need to do to party with us is...

* Grab a glass (or bottle!) of your favourite wine

* Turn up on Twitter at 8.30pm and make sure you're following @mumsnettowers (MNHQ) and @knackeredmutha (Helen McGinn)

* Check out the hashtag #knackeredwine - and join in!

Everyone who takes part, using the hashtag #knackeredwine, will be entered into a draw to win a case of wine, courtesy of the Tesco wine community.

If you're not on Twitter, never fear. You can still join in by posting on this thread, too. And we'll have some copies of The Knackered Mother's Wine Club to give away to folks who post here during the Twitter party.

We've also got a special 40% Mumsnet discount on Helen McGinn's book and £10 off a £50 wine shop at Tesco's Wine Community. More details here.

OK. I've now got four tabs going. my profile, MN Towers, Helen McG and the hashtag one.

Now what?? <wibble> which one do I look at?

Pan Fri 22-Mar-13 20:38:21

All of them in descending order Hot.

I've just made a v rude joke. Banning due...

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 22-Mar-13 20:42:13

Are you all smelling your wine?

Pan Fri 22-Mar-13 20:49:11

Helen is making sense! <does she know what she is taking on?>

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 22-Mar-13 21:08:06

Helen's just said "Wine makes you hungry and is always better with food - esp crisps!"

There, you have it from an expert. Wine MUST be consumed with crisps <gavel>

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Fri 22-Mar-13 21:11:36

Don't have wine with cheesy chips. Just... don't. sad

Kleptronic Fri 22-Mar-13 21:13:40

I have Echo Falls nameless grape pink wine, 11.5%. Does that count?

I can't do that twitter, I'd never get a wash or leave the house again.

If you have a question for Helen we can ask her on Twitter for you.

<whispers> come to Twitter....

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Fri 22-Mar-13 21:23:40

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Fri 22-Mar-13 21:28:24

smile Thanks {sobs}

Kleptronic Fri 22-Mar-13 21:29:40

I don't know how to do that twitter!

This is a bit mad because bothering the interweb is my job, but y'know, do you expect a chef to cook when they get home? Eh? Eh?

Anyway she'd no doubt throw up her hands at my choice of non-vintage.

<flounces> <slightly wobbly>

<soothes Kleptronic> we can ask Helen for you if you like? We're sure she'd love whatever you've got.

Kleptronic Fri 22-Mar-13 21:34:28
