    send sth (around) to sb's house

    Hello.

    In this sentence "I'll get the picture sent around to your house" is around an auxiliary adverb so that it can be removed without the meaning being changed?

    Is it BrE?

    Thanks, Alex.

    I'll get the picture sent to you house.
    I'll get the picture sent round to your house.
    I'll get the picture sent around to your house.
    All three are OK.
