Our stuff finally cleared customs and arrived at our house yesterday, two weeks after arriving in Brisbane. Unfortunately we were one of the unlucky ones and we got levied for an inspection fee by Customs, which cost us $270.
They didn’t do a very good job though because on opening our boxes we found that aftershave, pot-puree, and even a spider that was trapped at the bottom of glass display thing full of stones (I don’t know what to call it – it’s a woman’s thing), all made it through customs.
We now have boxes full of stuff all over the house ready to be sorted out and found an home, so it’s not going to be much of a relaxing weekend this weekend.
We need a bigger house, I’m sure we didn’t need to ship half of the items we did.
