O.o) Due to weight I wasn't able to send all the goodies I wanted to so we will have to do another international swap again. ^_~
Yeah I used a small flat rate which shipping domestic would be $5 but shipping international it was$13 :/ shipping prices aregetting out of control.
Its such a shame! I paid £10 to post mine, and that was when I had reduced the box of goodies by half already! Maybe we should do a marshmallow swap! That way we can send loads ;P

I decided in the end I'd rather dreadfully have a great box of goodies than make the postage any cheaper! Hope you enjoyed babe?

Mkatsi, i totally agree, thankfully i knew my sized box well so when i shopped i kept that in mind (buying a bunch of mini bars verses the full sized) i much rather spend the extra money in shipping to make sure my partner got some great goodies and not a few candy bars.

I hope the weight isn't so much that it's more than shipping flat rate. If it is, though, I may just go ahead and switch boxes right there in the post office. I couldn't get a whole lot with my money issues, but I hope Taran really likes what I got him!

Just a little update - I added a few things today to my parcel as an apology for posting late, I've changed it to a box & added bubble wrap, so with an luck everything will arrive ok. I'm posting it out tomorrow. Will report back on the price.

I posted mine the other day, I sent Mon a text to let her know. Mine weighed just under a kilo, I think that's 2lb too & cost £9.80 which at the current exchange rate works out to be $15.75

I got my package the other day! HOLY CANDY! Taran, you outdid yourself! The only thing I can tell I don't like so far is the licorice (not a big licorice fan), but I think it'll take me a few months to get through this whole thing!

Mkatsi, the sweets were amazing!Thank you so much! We still have some and are savoring them. So far my favorite has been the crisp(?) My oldest even went to school telling his teacher he has "candy from England". I hope that you package gets there soon and that you enjoy them. Now if I can locate the cable for my camera that my two year old has misplaced I will happily post pictures.

I haven't heard from my swap partner and she hasn't posted on here at all. Should I be concerned?
