:hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho: Hysterical! Do you know I've not thought about that since I made that area 4.5 years ago now!!! I did it as I understood that is what the Aussies called them (we were in France at the time) and I wanted to make the site as 'bi-lingual' :wink: :giggle: as I could in preparation for our move here, not realising how big or UK centric it would be by the time we moved!!

So should I just change it to wraps now, think I best as we are coming back to Europe!! :giggle: :giggle: To be fair I think the word was around a bit on the Aussie scene back in 2006 but I have not seen it much since so yes probably an archaic term as well as an Aussie one - time to go :wave: :wave: !!!!

Well spotted thank you! :hug:

Ahhhh so it isn't just an old Aussie thing then. I guess way back all our words came from the UK mainly anyway! I do find it interesting how some words are still used here and not there and vice versa though (geek :lookround: :giggle: )
