Sunday 27th October - Corrections

A reader (he knows who he is!!!) has noticed that sometimes, maybe occasionally, perhaps even frequently, the day-date-month part of the heading of my posts can be - misleading, inaccurate, or, to put it plainly, wrong.

Well, now that I am a grown-up, I don't like doing corrections.

Not since I used to have to write out my spelling corrections six times, neatly, at the end of the dictation tests at primary school.

All I will say is that the DAY of the post refers to the DAY. And the MONTH of the post refers to the MONTH. Usually. And sometimes the Date is right too.

And sometimes not.

I've double-checked - today looks ok at the moment.

Oh, by the way, have you remembered to put your clocks back? We did.
