C'est vraiment une offre tres speciale...
This blog's been gathering a fair bit of dust over the last week, as Real Life intrudes on my Virtual Existence.
So as a gift to you, dear readers, today I offer you something to enhance your own Real World existence.

So I snaffled up the necessary passwords from back-issues of the paper in the Library, and dancing around in front of my computer, set about making the order. Mais malheureusement, I was only to find that the offer did not apply to when we wanted to travel. Merde!
Still, I don't want all my hard work to go to waste, so my gift to you, loyal readers, is THE LINK, and the following useful passwords:
