Australian Customs

NEWS 23/10/16 - I'm finally in the new house, boxes everywhere so slowly getting back into swapping. Post redirect is on if you have sent anything.

Please remember when sending to Australia that we have very strict customs. If your swap contains any food, plant, animal, shell, leaf, twig, pebble etc it will get destroyed before it reaches me. :-(
