First the leaves.
All taken on my morning walk today.
Now for the standards.
Grammar and punctuation. I like it to be correct.
I realise our language is continually evolving and I take delight at new words and new ways of using them (although I can do without 'nommy').
However, when someone on television (Alesha Dixon on Strictly Come Dancing springs to mind) says was when they mean were I wince. It causes me physical pain. Now, I can forgive Alesha, she's an entertainer not an educator. But when my daughter's teacher said to her yesterday at parents' evening; 'You was a bit worried about your maths wasn't you?' I died a little inside.
