WOYWW 5th Anniversary!!

This is the state of the desk on this 5th Anniversary of WOYWW... yep, boxed up and ready to go!
This is the rest of the room... the packers come in next Tuesday and load onto the shipping container on the Wednesday, so this will be my last WOYWW from Australia. 
Here is the PIF ATC for the name below mine with an asterisk.. I have sent all the others out already and saved this one for today so its just a case of popping it in the post.
Here is the lovely Pandora, she had her 5th Birthday on Monday this week... and she is not looking forward to her flight home... :(
Tom-Tom says he will cope as long as there are treats at the end of it...  don't think he has figured out that he gets picked up next Monday and flown to Sydney, then they stay in Sydney till their flight on Wednesday to Heathrow... where they get checked over and then boarded for the night and have to catch a flight to Aberdeen in the morning of the 6th June when we will also arrive and go and fetch them from the terminal.  Poor little things.... 
Happy 5th Anniversary of WOYWW to you all but especially to Julia, thank you for thinking o f it, and keeping it going!

  1. OMGosh. I just realized you sent me an ATC. I haven't opened it, so was unaware it was from you. But it is here, and has been for two days. For some reason, I thought it was from Sandra De.

    I was delighted to read that both Pandy and Tom-Tom don't have to stay in quarantine for six weeks or six months or any time, other than the time it takes for you to fetch them in Aberdeen.

    I stopped by earlier, and saw you hadn't posted, so wondered how you were going to have a PIF when you had no number. DUH!! Dumb blond moment.

    Happy 5th WOYWW and many, many more.

  4. Happy WOYWW 5! No number yet, our intrepid organizer is doing the late shift today it would seem and we are all early birds in anticipation! Travel home safe and hope your two dear kitties survive their stop overs with their treats and glad to see they don't have to spend time in quarantine.

    Lovely ATC Annette.

  6. Can't wait for your next post to say you have Tom- Tom and Pandy safe with you. At least they are used to this travelling lark - do think you should tot the miles up for them some time.
    Love my atc and what a terrific one you have done for your PIF.
    Will be thinking of you when you start your journey home and hope there is a little something waiting for you from me.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  10. I cannot even imagine what it must be like to pack up and fly across the world with all your 'stuff'' not to mention the cats.
    I hope it goes well and you arrive in 'sunny' Aberdeen safe and well.
    Happy anniversary and good luck

  26. Gosh my heart goes out to you all having to travel but poor Pandora and Tom Tom, give them a cuddle from me will you please. So much happening and you are concerned about ATCs, I would be off the planet making sure my babies and art supplies are sorted and fine. Why can't you stay in Australia this is not fair. Boo hoo and I have not meet you in person either and you have travelled so far. I do hope you babies and you have safe travels.

  32. Hi Annette, you seem extremely well organised for the move. Happily, you are returning home to Aberdeen at probably the best time of year so hopefully it won't feel too chilly for you all. I hope all goes well and I wish you, Pandora and Tom Tom a safe journey. Elizabeth x #97

  34. Awwww, I feel so bad for the kitties traveling all that time. I hope they cope well.

    Your ATCs are very nice and your packing looks so organized. Hopefully the moving will go smoothly for the humans as well!

    Happy 5th Woyww-versary,

  37. Jeez. FINALLY I can get your blog to open for me. It's driving me MAD this morning. Anyway, I am double checking with Julia to see if there was an envelope for you at the crop - I just cannot remember and I didn't make a note of it. But I also have NO IDEA if you are in one place long enough to mail the swap ATC if not (and where that place might be LOL!) so give me an address and if I find there wasn't an envelope for you there I'll drop it in the mail.

    I do NOT envy you the packing...again!

    Got totally ambushed yesterday so late to the party. I hope this shows up...

    Happy 5 year WOYWW!

  38. hahaha My craft room looks like your house at the moment, covered in boxes but life has been so busy. So sad to know that you are leaving Brisbane just as I am arriving, would have loved to have caught up with you for a coffee. If you still have time I would love to. I am in Geebung.
    Happy travels and see you on WOYWW in England
    Hugs

  42. Hi Annette, sorry for the late visit. Thanks for swinging by my blog. Good luck with the move. We moved our kitties from London to NYC last year, not as far, they were a bit traumatised but very happy to see us. Happy 5 Year WOYWW. Cx #91

  43. Off you go again! Still hopefully this way can do a trip up to see family then pop in for a cup of tea and meet the cats, especially Pandora. Her age just reminds me of mine with my birthday on Wednesday and her 40 years behind me. Hope you all have a safe trip xx

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
