    Principal and principle...

    You can be a principal with principles; but not a principle with principals.

    Or in my line of work... It's a principal rafter; not a principle rafter.

    No, I'm as thick as a plank of wood :D

    Doh, don't do this early in the morning...

    Meant to write, thick as two short planks.

    Whatever

    I wish that people would remember that it is: could have, should have, would have, NOT could of, should of, would of!

    For at least 30 years my father and I have been using 'could of done', 'should of done' etc instead of could have, should have. It's more fun you see. And he's been an English teacher for 55 years, a poet and author of various books on Shakespeare, so there.

    When talking about the past, my 6 year old son says "A while of days ago"

    I think "A While of Days" sounds like the perfect title for a Jane Austin style novel. My sons got the copyright on that one.

    Damn, you got the copyright on that one cider_and_toast My daughter does write books (she self publishes them too) that would make a great title. She's already done a modern version of Pride and Prejudice, she's currently working on a modern version of Mansfield Park. She does also write her own original ideas which are incredibly good I think and she's sold copies all around the world.

    Sorry, proud Mum there, got carried away :embarrassed:
