The box looked like it had been round the world as it was showing some wear. Australian Customs had also opened it and inspected the items inside. Some foodstuffs (like some types of teas) are prohibited in Australia so they were doing a good job in checking.
I resisted the temptation of opening it at the post office and I was very eager to finish the shopping and get back home. I also was wondering if it was 'booby trapped' with sparkles and sprinkles. I have caught out both of them by putting glitter stars and sprinkles in envelopes when I have sent them cards.
The first thing to great me was a card on top, then the Australian quarantine pamphlet telling me that nothing had been removed or confiscated by them and what was prohibited in coming into Australia.
The box was packed tightly with a wonderful selection of goodies and all in Slovenian language, which I can't read. Luckily the pictures were self-explanatory as to what the contents were.
I was like a kid in a lollie shop.
Inside was 2 boxes of herbal tea. One looks like a rosehip and the other mixed berries. There was a large block of chocolate, lots of tubs of honey, some ground coffee, a cinnamon (I think) cake topping (at least I think that is what it is because there is a diagram of a cake slice on the label), two boxes of chocolates and two sachets of chocolate spread (I was guessing).
And rounding it all off was a funny birthday card with a great message from Paulo and Ana about being sweet. Ahhhhhh
I made myself a tea from the berries packet, this was beautiful and a deep red colour. As part of my lunch (I ate a healthy wrap first) I opened each of the packet chocolates and had one each and then I just couldn't resist but I opened the sachet of two-toned chocolate and ate that very slowly with a small spoon.
I am in heaven. Thank you my dear friends for my birthday gifts.
Paulo and Ana are the reason for one of my
obsessions hobbies which is postcard exchange through Postcrossing.
