I just really need to have a moan about this and grateful that GN forums have a place for this. Since my grandchildren were born, 5 years ago, in America, I have frequently posted small packages to my daughter with inexpensive items of clothing, toys etc. and all have arrived within a week or two. However 2 months ago, I posted a very special package with a much wanted Paw Patrol toy, other toys and a dress for my granddaughter. I also included a few small personal possessions as I am decluttering. In any event, the package never arrived and I am heartbroken. In future, every single package will be traceable and insured. (I even wondered if it was because I put some British sweeties in the package. I am well aware that Kinder Eggs are ILLEGAL in America - though you can buy your 6 year old a BB gun - but I wonder if the popping candy could have posed a problem.) Definitely a First-World problem, but I just wanted to share my sadness .
