One of my boxes sent from England 5 weeks ago arrived yesterday. The shipping charge was about £44, and for some inexplicable reason the Post Office decided that the best way to do this was to use one £1 stamp and about 150 28p stamps featuring a mischeviously smiling Prince William. The stamps covered every square inch of the box that did not contain the address or tracking label.

I am now a bit scared as to what the £80 box due to arrive in San Francisco will look like...
