It's officially on the 5th May, but at least this gives us more time to post!

Can't remember

Happy Birthday anyway!

April 2013 here too.
The year you joined is on your profile if you don't remember. Time goes so quickly.

I joined at the start, in May 2011. It doesn't seem like 5 years. I wonder how many hours I have wasted spent on here! Happy birthday GN. party cupcake wine

I think ( can't really remember) I joined about 3 Years ago, and one of my early threads was about the joys of cheese on toast, which to my surprise ran for a few pages.grin HAPPY BIRTHDAY ( a few days early) to Gransnet.๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฐ

rosesarered Sun 01-May-16 21:34:32

Ah yes cherry I remember the dead ant thread!

We thought our 5th birthday deserved a whole week of celebrating! We've got a new competition going live every day till the 5th.
cupcake and wine and sunshine and flowers to you all! Thank you for making Gransnet what it is. party

I too was here right at the beginning - I still remember my trepidation at joining my first online community.
Loving the new party

NanSue Sun 01-May-16 21:50:48

I think I joined shortly after Gransnet started but can't remember when. I did not post anything until way after though. Just stalked for a very long time!

NanSue Sun 01-May-16 22:00:32

Oh yes , July 2011, according to profile.

baubles Sun 01-May-16 22:10:39

Happy GNet birthday to all. cupcake

I joined in July 2012 and the following month went along to one of the first meet ups in Glasgow. Met some lovely people there and felt at home right away. Thank you for the friendship and support ever since then. smile

Granny23 Sun 01-May-16 23:22:57

I joined in May, 2011 having come over from the dark side (Mumsnet). I also attended the very first meet up in Glasgow along with Baubles, Soop, Bags, Marelli and Absent. I think most of us had different names then. It was amazing as each person appeared - as if Characters from a favourite book had suddenly become flesh and blood.

Picture attached was taken by Baubles and shows Soop, Bags, Marelli standing, Absent and me sitting.

Granny 23 I wonder if other Gransnetters' meet-ups are as riotous as the Scottish and North-east granny ones that I recall โ€“ with great fondness, I may add.

Elegran Sun 01-May-16 23:36:52

I see I joined in May 2011 too. May 5th is the anniversary of the day DH and I met. so instead of feeling miserable that he is no longer with me, I shall celebrate all the Gransnet friends I have made.

cornergran Mon 02-May-16 00:36:32

Only here for a year and a bit, but Happy Birthday to Gransnet just a few days in advance.

grannyactivist Mon 02-May-16 00:36:54

Elegran that's a lovely sentiment. flowers

Marelli Mon 02-May-16 07:19:45

absent......actually, now you come to mention it, I think it would take a lot to beat your Darlington 'meet-up/ goodbye absent' gathering, riotousness-wise! grin!!
