As it's Thanksgiving and Holiday time in America today, I think I'll give everyone more time to send me thier definitions in. I do always forget that it takes a few days longer at this time of year!

I'll keep sending reminders to people every couple of days or so and will post the round when everyone has sent one in.

Please do send your definition in as soon as you can though if you haven't already done it x

Thanks x
