I am going to be a couple days late due to funding, I pm'd my partner and she doesn't hate me for it. SLIGHT possibility I will get it sent on time though if my day goes where I am hoping it will! *fingers crossed*

Don't be silly love that's not a problem as your keeping communication up :) Im also sending in a few days as I can't afford it right now. (money issues) so we all have problems at times :)

I bought like 15 dollars worth of candy and they told me it would be 60 to send :i6:

So I had to reduce the candy in the box and I think it will still cost like 30 at least but i dont even care we made 3 trips to the post office and everytime it was too expensive...boyfriend is running to the post right now and I told him to send it regardless of price because Im getting frustrated and want it over with...lol

I wish they had flat rate boxes here :(
I had already packed it and spent ages trying to make sure it was padded enough that the "surprise" didn't break, I hope it gets through customs!
I just didn't realise how much it weighed until I got there 1.3kilos lol
I hope you like it :D

Yeah we don't have flat rate boxes here either. But luckily for SOME reason it's usually a BIT cheaper to send stuff from Canada, so here's hoping.

I've emailed her too and she hasn't read it yet. I wouldn't worry for now, i've dealt with her in the past and she's been really good so i'm sure she'll send :)

Okay, I wasn't too worried.. this is my first swap so I guess I'm just a bit over-eager :P

Did you put it in a box or an envelope? Maybe that made a difference to price, I needed a box so that a certain something didn't break :)
