If only there was smelly vision!!

My whole house is now enveloped in a gorgeous lavender smell!

The double wrapped parcel (that could have made it here without any wrapping paper with just the gazillion stickers on it...) contains a lovely little basket and loads of lavender pouches and handmade lavender soap! It all smells so sunny and summery! Just what I needed in this grey Januari! Thank you so much swappee!

It’s digital which is 10 times less yuck than having to be in school! Yeah corona!

Those are beautiful gifts.

I can imagine how they smell 😊

How quick did that parcel arrive in the end 😮

Hopefully, the last 2 gifts will arrive sometime and we can post those on here too.

It was stamped the 22nd, so it did well this time. The silly thing is that it did make to the Netherlands, as there is a return sticker pasted over the address in Dutch saying to return it to the sender... And they stuck it over my perfectly legible and correct address...

I dont know how this is going to affect the Swap in future. As on the radio today people are having to pay large amount of tax to receive a parcel sent to them from EU. Peter.

Yes, it could make things difficult or expensive, unfortunately.

@Peter we also have to pay import and customs duty on parcels received from the UK all thanks to brexit. 

You may have to organise a European arm of the swap @Luvachicken

I think it will only require payments if the cost of the goods is over a certain amount of money.   Same as has been for years from non EU countries.  Moral of the story is to be a gift and not be expensive :)

When sending to NZ I hate having to detail contents on the customs slip - bang goes the element of surprise!

You stretch the truth a little - use a different name for the items!   My American friends are quite good at being different on the forms!! So there is still an element of surprise  = home made crafts comes to mind rather than a knitted har!
