I am writing this in the car on the way to Scotland and I have Henry (husband, or eldest child at 32 depending on what day it is, right now child) and Jack singing Let It Go really loudly in my ears and my 2 year old Poppy shouting Shhhhh cuddling her dolly and making it cry. This is my trip!
Why am I writing now? You are probably thinking that I should have taken a sleeping pill, or had a dram or two of whisky! But something was on my mind and I thought that I should write while it was fresh in my mind.
Do you know what one of my biggest bug bears is? Spelling and grammar in emails when they are ‘official.’ From someone that should know better. I have had several emails from my son’s school where the spelling and grammar has been so bad that I have had to read it several times to work out what it is they are trying to say. These emails go out to a large audience of parents whose children the school is meant to be teaching to read and write.
It made me think about when I email, message and communicate on social media. It has made me more aware of the importance of getting it right. Not rushing and making sure that the real reason why you are contacting the person gets through and they are thinking about that when they are reading it, rather than just seeing your mistakes.
