The people who rob my bank account on a regular basis

    Finally got round to taking a look at your blog… It’s quite a relief to learn that I’m not the only Impressionen addict. Well, I actually went cold turkey after moving to France… The shipping costs and stuff, you know. *big sigh*

    BTW, you might want to have a look at But beware: it’s highly addictive. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you if you end up spending your last penny (^-^)
