You know you have been spending too much time on Mumsnet, when...

When DH tells me about a news story and I say "Oh, yeah, saw a thread about that earlier"

You get abuse from a rude waiter and are actually delighted as you can feel a juicy AIBU thread coming on...

oh, yes. My conversations often start with 'I was reading on MN'.

Although a lot now start with 'I was reading on Twitter'

When conversations always begin with "I read on mumsnet..."

When you see a swimsuit that reminds you of a MNer's username.

My dh laughs and says are you STILL on MN!?
And at the weekend over dinner with friends I couldn't remember where I'd heard a very interesting fact about something we were discussing- it was MN! My dh and the rest of the table just laughed when I finally admitted where this information was from!! smile
(I for the record believe everything I read on herewink)

It's even worse here, girliefriend - I know I have spent too much time on Mumsnet because whenever anything interesting happens, dh thinks I should post/ask Mumsnet about it!

when I start referring to my daughter as dd!! Or when something random happens and I think should I start a thread about this?!

Ha. Clever baby. It took my kids a lot longer than that to realise that mummy wasn't actually 'working'.

The baby tells me quite emphatically when my mn time is up!

you sign your name on an email and your iPhone changes 'Lynn' to 'LTB'.

Luckily I noticed before I sent it, or GeraldineMN would have been rather bemused.
