So I'm told, now is the time to do it, before the "rush" comes on.
I've sent the odd package here and there in the world and recently, I came across this document from NZ Post, it tells people what is regarded as "Restricted Items" for postage to different countries.
It's Here as a PDF file .
Oh and by the way PaulUK,As for them hooves and horns that I was going to send you, well the authorities say no, I'm afraid!.

Well, it's 'bonus time' in the big sorting offices here in the run up to Xmas ( bah!, humbug!). My mailman informs me that it's common knowledge that in the big sorting areas at Marseilles, Paris, Frejus, that stealing small items is rife. Looks like I just lost $25 worth of printer cartriges my son mailed me a fortnight ago.

Wood work but can't!
