    Careful what you say about Norwich, my husband was born in the city. Fortunately he was not born in the rural area of the country when he would be known as a carrot-cruncher by outsiders.

    The offspring of my siblings (brother and sister) are my nephews and nieces not my cousins, I am their aunt.

    My cousins are children from my aunts and uncles (my parents brothers and sisters), because we have grandparents in common.

    I knew Mats definition was wrong but now I've read the Wikipedia definition I'm still non the wiser. I've managed so far in life thought so I wont worry about it.

    The Norwich bit reminds of the Doctor's shorthand/slang that was in the 'news' a few years ago - NFN is apparently Normal for Norfolk, but I recall there were some really quite funny ones... Mat's NHS, he should be good on this!

    Try the above... you need to scroll down a bit.

    And sorry for the hijack (Mat's fault for mentioning Norfolk)
