    Luca - we shopped up big as well and also bought the 2 metre Giraffe. We took the Giraffe on the aircraft with us, bubble wrapped. Everything else we took in a 2nd suitcase we bought. We were charged excess luggage, but it was only $25 Australian dollars. We had to declare all the wooden items once we arrived back in Sydney, so just make sure that you have all the things you need to declare in one place. We had a few things taken by quarantine that needed to be fumigated before we could keep them, the little fur covered balls - they were worried that there was some sort of seed inside and a cow hide drum I bought as they said that the skin had not been treated properly. Cost me an additional $60 but all was couriered back to me within 2 weeks and was not damaged despite them telling me that the process could well damage the items.

I doubt Qantas will let us put all this in extra luggage. We are here another week.

    Thank you!

    Luca's going crazy on the shopping! Have you seen the handbags at Green Market Square yet?

    Hey guys,
    Just a quick question - I requested the donation history for 2 of my preferred donors. One donors info gave the amount of eggs retrieved but the other didn't say. What would be the reason why they won't tell me?
    The one that showed how many had a negative result but the other one (the one where they won't show eggs) had a positive. Weird?

    hi Emski,

    Yes, i asked the agency first & they sent me the documents, then I asked CFC directly and they sent me the exact same documents which the agency had sent me.
    I mean it says that the donations resulted in pregnancies, so I should just be happy with that but honestly I don't want to do all this just to risk it for 3 or 4 eggs. (I know it only takes 1 good one but I think we can all honestly say we would love a better egg result if we had a chance)
