This week I shall be travelling. Or will I be traveling?
People who use British English have a small problem with Blogger because it uses US English. Now I am the last person to say that one is correct and one is not but it is quite irritating when every time I spell a word with 'll' or 'ise' (as in realise) I'm told that I'm wrong. 'Cos I'm not! I used to be a very good speller. Now I'm constantly making errors (much to CJ's chagrin when we are doing crosswords) and am frequently racked (or wracked) with doubt which is not helped (and may even be caused in part) by spillchuckers.
Of course there are words which are a particular bête noire. Mine was 'across' which for the first 60+ years of my life I always spelled 'accross'.
One I only recently discovered or realised was inquiry (US) instead of enquiry (UK). Odd that it had taken me so long to come across that one.
PS. I managed everything in town in record time so am doing this over a cup of coffee before I mend the shed roof and make lunch. Oh how I love days when I get lots done.
