I have noticed that Anya has not posted for several weeks. Is she is OK?

Chewbacca Mon 01-Jan-18 11:42:09

I heard from Anya a few weeks ago and she was fine, but busy with stuff. She was concerned that Ana hadn't posted for a while and asked if anyone had heard from her. Several of us tried to contact Ana but had no reply. It's always worrying when a regular and popular poster disappears for a while isn't it? I'll send Anya a pm and let you know if I hear back.

I had also noticed but she has many friends on GN and as nobody had commented I thought it maybe a private
I wish her well.

I’ve been wondering about Ana and Anya too, and hope they’re both well.

I had wondered if perhaps Ana had changed her GN name.

I have noticed Ana hasn't posted for a while she was quite prolific. Of course posters do reinvent themselves under another guise, maybe that's the case. I was sorry when PRINTMISS disappeared I miss her gentle posts I found them an antidote to some of the aggression that exists on GN. She didn't make a secret of the fact that she was well into her 80s so one can only wonder.

I have been wondering about Anya as well.

I sent a pm to Ana last September to ask if she was OK as I hadn't seen her posting. She reassured me that she was.

There are so many new names on here now that I can't work out if they are new members or name changes.

I miss PRINTMISS too TerriBull. The last time I noticed her post on here someone got quite shirty with her over children wearing earrings of all things. Happy NewYear to Ana, Anya, PRINTMISS, Jingle and any other GNetters not posting anymore.

Me too merlot and even when I know who 'new' people used to be, I forget! Iyswim!

kittylester Mon 01-Jan-18 12:34:35

I daren't change my name or I'd wonder who I was too!!

ninathenana Mon 01-Jan-18 12:43:18

Regards to all the afore mentioned.
Imperfect hasn't been around either, unless she has reinvented herself.

kitty please don't even think of changing, I really would be confused !

M0nica Mon 01-Jan-18 14:21:35

When I changed my name, my last post under the old name was to say I was changing my name, but not what i was changing it to.

downtoearth Mon 01-Jan-18 14:50:40

I will send Anya an email now and check she is ok.

Jalima1108 Mon 01-Jan-18 19:19:54

I am missing Ana, Anya* and PRINTMISS and wondered how they were just the other day.
Dare I say I wondered how Jingls is too? without starting a long thread?
I notice that etheltbags has posted occasionally in the past few weeks, which is good.

I asked after Ana but the other poster had not heard from her.

And others too - but perhaps they have changed their names.

NfkDumpling Mon 01-Jan-18 20:38:46

Now I'm wondering who you used to be MOnica! I have enough problems remembering names at the best of times, so name changes confuse me utterly.

M0nica Mon 01-Jan-18 20:44:10

Now that would be telling. grin But I made the change some years ago.

annsixty Mon 01-Jan-18 21:29:20

I can still remember as I liked your last name M0nica
I seem to remember you were outed by a family member 😉

Bathsheba Mon 01-Jan-18 21:40:39

How strange this thread has been started today, as I was only thinking last night that I hadn't seen either Ana or Anya on here for a while. I did wonder whether one or both of them had changed their names...

BBbevan Tue 02-Jan-18 18:16:30

I have missed Anya as I always found her posts very susinct, and thoughtful. I am sure she said something about not posting for a while. But I may be wrong

M0nica Tue 02-Jan-18 18:33:25

annsixty, you are right and I was.

Jane10 Tue 02-Jan-18 18:35:42

Anya came to a meet up in Edinburgh in August. It was very nice to meet her. I hope all is well with her.
