Has anyone heard from Meerkat?

Postby The Mad Collector » Sun Jul 14, 2013 7:39 pm

It's been nearly 5 months since she last posted here and I'm worried. Does anyone have contact with her?
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I've been thinking about her recently as well and am going to be writing to her soon about something she wanted to contribute to on my other forum.

I think that she's been having connection problems which explains some of the absence as she used to use the Library equipment, but I think she's had some more health problems and was on sick leave from the charity shop, so I'll get on with this letter in a few days I think... :?

I do believe in Meerkat! I do! I do!

Maybe if we all say that she'll appear.

I believe as well . . .

In fact I had a card from her this morning. :mrgreen:

I'm sure she won't mind me quoting her card (which has a meerkat on and a meesage saying "'Meerly' a note to say . . ."

Just a note to let you know that I haven't deserted the Pratchett website, but have been very ill suffering from a nasty bout of depression which has left me feeling very weary and have little interest in anything.

I am still undertaking some charity work to get me out so I haven't has much time to hit the internet.

Please send my love and cuddles to every one on the site as well as your Sharlene.

Bye for now,

Luv

aka Meerkat


I can certainly identify with that feeling - it's very much a part of depression. :(

I'm sure you all join me in wishing her well and a speedy recovery.

*HUGS* Meerkat. :romance-grouphug:

I've just sent a card to Meer telling her that we miss her and hopes that she'll feel up to joining us again. :)

And I wrote to her yesterday so her occult seeker-sense is obviously still fine! :o

Good to know she's still keeping up with the charity work even if she's otherwise down - hopefully the hugs and vibes will some more sterling work :clap:
