That's a word I haven't heard in a long time, Very Happy  Twonk!! I like it, I think it may be another word that my Grandaughter picks up. ( Drives my son in law daft. He's well and truly Southport and doesn't know half of the words that we use) Still, none of us swear, so he should be grateful for that Laughing Laughing  She did a cracker last week, I forgot to tell you. They have been driven daft recently by ambulance chasers phoning up, you know the ones " our records show that you suffered a traffic accident". Well, Daughter was busy and the phone rang, Grandaughter picked it up, listened for a moment, then said...." No, I cant drive cos I'm six, Had enough now, Byeee! and the phone went down, leaving my Daughter unable to speak, with tears pouring down her face from laughing. She was still breathless when she phoned me, and started me off.
