parcel posted

I hope my parcel to England has a first class seat all to itself and the best of service from plane staff.  It can forego any food or drink but should be tucked in neatly. It ought to.  I was astounded at the cost.  The small vest shown in the previous entry.  I have washed and blocked it, a small book and a small light shawl for the baby's mum.  All in a padded envelope.  Cost was over $30!

It was not really heavy nor large.  I have long associated expensive postage with the USA but I thought this was somewhat steep.

I posted three paperback books (comparatively heavy) to USA several weeks ago because they were won in my give-away! They cost me more than $30. I should have sent some money - the winner could have bought the books cheaper there! And they still haven't arrived!!

I'm sure the gift will be appreciated.

Our postage is outrageous, think Mum spent about $60 on a couple of small parcels to UK. I have a 3Kg box of knitted squares to send to Sth Africa , sea mail expecting $60 - $70

It is so expensive, but until they invent things for Star Trek it is the only way to post.
