Thanks so much for all your parcels and post - we love getting mail - BUT we have been having some troubles with post and some parcels have been tampered with and some never arrive.
Our suggestion to ensure safe delivery of your goodies to us and save you from wasting what I know is a lot of money on postage is;

  1. Keep parcels small ideally under 500g,
  2. Never put dollar value of more than $10
  3. Never write chocolate or CD’s or computer parts etc in contents.

Hopefully this will ensure safe delivery to us.

Yesterday we received a box that had been lovingly packed for us that was missing most of its original items. Some had been replaced with foreign food stuffs from Germany. They even ate the chocolate bars and left the empty wrappers inside!! Our expensive items were replaced by earplugs that look suspiciously like airport issue.

Post script:

We took Jake to the hospital and they did a blood test for malaria. It was not positive but that does not necessarily mean it is negative. They have given me medicine for malaria but I am not sure whether it is just gastro. He has just woken up now from a big sleep and says he is feeling a little better, but clearly he is still not well. Not sure what to do, happy for advice!!


Time Difference

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.~
