Potato?  Something at the bottom of a fruit bowl?  Dead mouse?  Rotten onion or garlic clove?

DH, kids and I are going school shoe/supply shopping.  Little one is most excited as it is her FYOS this year.

Got up at 2.30am and drive DD to work. It was her 18th birthday yesterday and she just may have been over the zero alcohol limit this morning.

Back home, tried to go back to sleep, eventually dropped off at sometime after 4.30, woke up again at 6.00 to get DS out of bed and drove him to work.

Back to sleep 7.00 until 11.00, unpacked dishwasher, put on three loads of washing, waiting for cricket to start on TV at 2.00 then will iron while watching. Pick up DS at 3.00 then NOTHING for rest of the day...ha ha ha...
