Is it common to say just "bratr" when referring to my brother?

I think so. We often encounter sentences like that in Czech and if it's not specified who else's brother could it be?

Yes, I just noticed this, too. Seems inconsistent. Maybe someone will explain...

We forgot to add 'my' in front of 'grandmother'. These things happen. Fixed now. Sincere apologies! :)
