Aha! I’ve sent packages to another friend in SA that never arrived … and though she’s asked me for a pattern, I haven’t sent it because I just hate the thought of it being stolen (and probably thown away because it’s not valuable).
And that my dear is the main reason why my family don’t get gifts in the mail from me and why they don’t sent gifts out of the country to us either. Even regular cards in pretty envelopes have been opened …… so sad!
I never send gifts to SA anymore, which is sad. Birthday and Christmas cards don’t arrive either. So I use PicknPay home shopping or Woolies, I order on line and it is delivered. Not quite the same as getting something from the USA though. Good thing we are going to be in SA for Christmas, yay!!!!!I can take gifts with me. Hopefully my luggage arrives safely :0)
