      Sending a box Down Under

      Whoops! The shippers have left with our belongings and we have forgotten a few things. I have looked at Voovit.com and it's 50 for a box to be sent over. That's not too bad but they say on their website that there will also be a charge for customs clearance. How much is this? They also say that I can arrange this myself and there will be no charge. Does anyone know how to do this?

      Oh yeah, Lisa 'conveniently' managed to pack ALL of her clothes so now has to buy new ones to wear before our container arrives. Hmm
