Are you on a laptop lovey?

If it's a laptop without a dedicated number pad, you have to use the numbers 'within' the qwerty keyboard (they're usually in a pale blue type, around the 'ertdfgcvb' letters), not the numbers along the top.

This may mean you have to hold down a fn button, or another button, or alternatively, just use GBP like normal people

Yep, I drive sunset road after work and there is often a fantastic sunset.

Pity there are so many trees in the way to take photos.

Your kids schools strangely don't have a 'P.E' uniform. (experience of two State Primary schools, one in Adelaide and one on the Gold Coast)
