They've been a wonderful source of support and advice throughout the final stages of the DEFRA process. Got a ride from them up to Scotland and arrived safe & sound, if a trifle jet-lagged, mid afternoon.

It's raining and windy today, but who cares? I'm home!

Barb, I think you're next? Best wishes for a safe flight, happy landings and exciting new beginnings!

SO glad you are back home, PoppyCat - both you and doggie. I must look into Pets and Jets myself for my own return.

What part of Scotland are you headed for?

Did you and your dog fly separately to the UK then?

This has been an amazing few weeks with a whole host of people travelling back the last two weeks. Just goes to show that if you make up your mind, you really CAN go back home!

What webpage are you looking at? Last time I looked they said the positioning device had been turned off. I can understand why with some of the countries they were flying over. What do I know?

Correct Quoll!!! Arrived right on time, not the best flight I have ever had, but I am home. Terrible saying goodbye to my daughter and kids, but it is done now, got really bad on the plane crying and so on.

The weather is grey and rainy and a bit cold. I tried to sleep for a few hours but am over tired now. My 2 sisters picked me up, just waiting for my mum and brother and his wife to come around and a few others will pop in.

Will check in again when my head gets back into the right time zone, its all a bit fuzzy at the moment.

Thank you for your good wishes, windsong and charleygirl. Windsong, I'm in Edinburgh. BTW, you have to accompany your pet when entering the UK via Manchester. I flew with Continental, and the Cargo Agents at check-in and, in flight, the cabin crew and even the Captain were wonderfully reassuring regarding my dog. He was the only animal on both flights, so I was concerned they remembered they were carrying an animal and that there was heating 'down below'. My dog has settled really well; no ill-effects at all...unlike me, who is still jet-lagged. I keep waking up at 3am, hungry for dinner.

Welcome home, Barb!

wow Bea you are really with it! Well maybe just in some ways. What you have gone through in the last few days and I would think you are living on nerves right now. Keep posting and get plenty of rest and it should take about a week to bring yourself around.
How nice to get to see your mom.
