On 8th November I needed to send a few packages abroad - which meant filling in some customs forms!

And I blame my colleague: she was talking about fudge that morning, so when I saw these I just had to buy one, didn't I?!

I always find custom notes tricky when sending a gift - how vague can I be on the description so as not to spoil the surprise. When I lived in NZ my Dad said 'nicknacks' on every parcel that he sent - I guess it covers everything.

I hate filling those forms in too - but I love it when I get a parcel and it gives me a sneaky clue to what's inside

ahhh custom forms. One more thing I get to learn about shortly!

It's really difficult to be cryptic enough without arousing unnecessary suspicion by the customs guys isn't it??
btw Thornton's does the best fudge :)

Your photo looks good enough to eat! Now, where can I find me some chocolate?

Arrrgh... Customs forms! Bane of my life... But then, they usually mean I've sold some stuff, so I don't mind them really. So far no-one's had their parcel opened and been made to pay extra, so I must be doing ok.
Fudge Mel, you're too cruel... I found a copy of Sian's Two Minute Choccy fudge the other day. It's in the kitchen, waiting for me to try it - tomorrow could be the day. (and if you want a link to the recipe, look in the links on the left side of my blog...)

Well, I think Helena's Dad has had the best idea yet when filling out the forms! I like that one :-)

So far I haven't had to fill in a customs form but the fudge looks scrummy! :)

I make stuff up on customs forms. I'll say 'clothing' or "kitchen utensils' rather than what the gift actually is
