Subject:Bulgaria yet again
Time:09:53 pm
I am now great-uncle to a seven-a-side football team, with yet another grand-nephew, born a few days earlier than expected. So far that's only one girl out of seven children in that generation, which isn't what I would have expected, but since I'm crap at buying girl's presents it's probably just as well.

Tomorrow I'll go buy some bootees etc.

Purely linguistically, I find it curious that you say "great-uncle" but "grand-nephew." But in any case, congratulations.

It is odd, I suppose, but for some reason that's the way English usage normally does it.

Congratulations! When do you expect them to play their first match? :)

Well, the oldest is 10 and the youngest is 24 hours, so there may be some practical problems... Probably not before 2025 or so.
