Could you please give us that finger-down-throat emoticon.

We need to get a bit of cred with Mumsnet.

If we are on gransnet does it not follow that we are also mums?

Takeover springs to mind

margaretm74 Sat 08-Feb-14 20:47:08

Sorry, also grandads and dads!

Go on then. Start a thread. I'll come on second.

Having had a quick look at the link it seems to be the older ones, 50 plus, who are reluctant to join the sensible shoes and elasticated waist band brigade!

You know the type - they come on here saying how very young they look and are not the average grandma, blah blah, and brag that they still wear Doc Martens and have nose piercings. grin

Not contribute to that one? And sabotage it?

Ana Sat 08-Feb-14 20:55:56

Sabotage what? Why is everyone so antsy about a bit of generation gap...? [roll-eyes emoticon] which I dearly wish we had...! grin

jinglbellsfrocks Sat 08-Feb-14 20:56:05

I would post on it. But I can't think of anything clever arsed interesting to say.

Invite them over for a cocoa and a poke in the eye

Why is everyone taking themselves so seriously? I think it's hilarious.

jinglbellsfrocks Sat 08-Feb-14 21:02:03

We could make it even more hilarious. If we were brave enough contributed to their thread.

Lona Sat 08-Feb-14 21:04:24

Someone has.

Well I am 50 plus,play footy with grandsons,(Arthritis permitting),drive a Motorbike(ok it's a 125 Scooter) and I feel right at home on Gransnet with such a great bunch of people ������.

We're thicker skinned, aren't we? Think Riverwalk's probably got the right idea (especially the struck out bit). And why, oh why did we not think of Ginsnet! grin

jinglbellsfrocks Sat 08-Feb-14 21:07:23

Oh I can't find the link now!

margaretm74 Sat 08-Feb-14 21:08:11

It was a joke!! Have had 2.5 glasses of wine. Make that 3.

I love them all, especiallly the intergenerational foundation whatsit.

jinglbellsfrocks Sat 08-Feb-14 21:11:27

Well done Cohenite! grin

Ooh! Must have a look...!

Ana Sat 08-Feb-14 21:22:53

Trisagion sounds like one of us! grin
