Ugh again

13 Apr

There was a dead bird in the chimney.

Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to be the source of the smell.

11pm and I have the window open. It comes in waves. It didn’t really bother the friends who were here playing games, which was good. (4-player Thurn und Taxis, Fraser wiped the floor with us 29 – 13 – 3 (me) – 0. I am so ashamed.)
I am now down to either it’s behind the TV or it’s in the wall somewhere. Which would be very bad. Also, it would mean I couldn’t blame either of my kids, which would be kind of fun.

    What about the garbage disposal (or whatever you call them down under)?

    One of those things in the sink? We don’t have one (they’re not common here, for some reason).

    I think I’ve tracked it to the corner where the fireplace & TV are … which means we need to go through the shelves & drawers of DVDs and videos to see if there’s anything there.

    Failing that (and, I think, more likely), that corner backs onto the bathroom and, more specifically, the corner with the spa bath. I wouldn’t be surprised if a possum had snuck in & died under the bath, with the smell coming through in here through the wall, but not through the tiles in the bathroom.

    Anyway, I am taking Biggie out for lunch so checking that corner can be Fraser’s job 🙂
