Default how much does 1/2 cup butter weigh ?

I love baking and have a lot of cook books and mags. In the magazines from the USA the measurement of butter is always in cups, 1/4, 1/2 etc. Here (Australia) we have weight measurements. Along time ago I was told a cup was 250g but I used this and it seemed too much.
I always buy the Better homes and garden, Christmas cookies magazine and am always nervous about messing up a whole batch of biscuits (sorry cookies) with too much butter. I have just drooled over the lastes edition and want to bake everything. Please help me

Our butter is sold in 250g blocks.
I have seen some recipes list a stick of butter but most are cup measurements.

Sorry just re read your reply.
So 1/2 cup = 4oz
I can convert oz to grams easily.
Thanks for the quick reply, I knew SCS members would be able to give me the answer to a cooking question.
