You can’t proof read your own work. I had thought that if I left a piece of work long enough I would be able to see the mistakes. After all, as I used to be a teacher it is second nature to me to spot the mistakes. I see them all the time in newspapers and books that I read. But no, I tried, but found that I was soon reading what I had intended to be there rather than what was actually there.
Note to myself… don’t be so critical… it’s hard to spot mistakes.
