The "Aussie Postkateers Welcome Home" Meetup 22'07'2009


teapot is just home from the "Aussie Postkateers Welcome Home" Meetup, held in the lovely home of wanitajan here in Coffs Harbour tonight.

Attendees: glenasena, crizle, mrcrizle, wanitajan, mrwanitajan (John), jnrwanitajan (Stephen), Merewyn973 and the teapot :)

Merry had driven down from Brisbane today for the Meetup, and crizle and mrcrizle had driven up from Sydney, en-route home tomorrow.

We had a pre-dinner card signing session, with tea and coffee, then sat down to a superb dinner prepared by wanitajan, then more card signing and lots of chat.

The girls regaled us with stories about their wonderful time in Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Bangkok.

Photographs of the Meetup :)

The top photo shows a busy post-prandial card-signing session... (clockwise around the table) - wanitajan, glenasena, crizle, mrcrizle, mrwanitajan, jnrwanitajan, Merrywyn973

The bottom photo shows wanitajan and glenasena busily signing postcards... crizle is gloating over her gifts from the wonderful FI postcrossers

I wish!

No apple pie... her good friend Sarah made us a Pecan pie which was served with peaches and cream :)

thank you, dear teapot, for the pics and u2u and so on...
it was very kind!!!!!!!! and it seems it was a nice meeting!!

than happy that some of the dear finnish postcrossers
now have a 'face' in my mind!!!! (perhaps very silly in english,
but in german we have an expression like this!)

At the first Adelaide meeting on 10-10-10 I was thrilled to see these pics in the Postcrossing meeting journal book that crizle has been keeping. These pics are from photos from the 'Welcome Home Aussie Postkateers' Meetup and have misterteapot displaying a smiley flag that I gave to him and kilona when they were living in Finland.
