also whats "Bobs your uncle" mean? LOL! sorry I'm just a dumb yank!
Abby, it means 'there it is,' or 'there you have it.'

It comes from when Lord Salisbury (Robert [Bob] Cecil) appointed his nephew Arthur Balfour to a senior position when no one thought that he should get the post. Therefore he only got the job because 'Bob was his uncle.'

The joys of the English language! Even we don't understand it most of the time
