A friend of mine, Debbie Flint, is an Author and also a presenter on the UK QVC shopping channel. She’s currently in China for three weeks training presenters for the Chinese version of QVC.

I’ve been following her Facebook updates – she also has a website with a blog, but the China daily news is currently only on Facebook.

The most interesting thing for me (although we’re only at Day 9 of 21) was when she wrote:

A side effect of the one child policy is the knock on effect of generally no brothers or sisters – namely, that means there are no cousins. Or aunties or uncles or nephews or nieces or sister/brothers-in-law .. Makes you think doesn’t it?

And yes, I’d never thought of that before.
