"the other way round to usual"? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Does the aforementioned phrase make any sense at all?
    I thought it was okay to say but then I googled it and only nine hits came up.

    Is it all right to say something like, "Sometimes X and Y are the other way round to usual" (that is to say that X and Y are used or placed in each other's place)? Clearly there are more eloquent ways of expressing it but anyway...

    thanks. don't ask where it came from Dx
