I'm lacking in confidence again, but is this a 'puffed' Puffball fungi? As always, replies will be much appreciated.

It looks like a puffball, well past edible stage. When in doubt, slice the bulb vertically right through the little (often hairy) tip in ground/log. You should see smooth flesh throughout and no trace of nascent cap.
