Ok fellow spelling and grammar peeps I need your help!
I recently finished writing my yearly reports and I got pulled up on this comment:
"Well done, Lily, and all the best for Year Two!"
My Deputy Principal checked my reports and made me take the "and" out so it read like this:
"Well done, Lily, all the best for Year Two!"
Was this necessary? Thoughts?
I think you're right. I always have an ongoing battle with my principal over 'ands' and commas...
I think your first comment was correct. The second one could use a semi colon after lily.
I would have taken out the first comma & left the 'and' in. I don't know if it's right, but it's how I'd say it.
"...dreaming of a belly full of life..."
I would have made 2 sentences.

See that's what we used to do ("Well done Lily, ..." but our principal insists on the extra comma. These report wordings are a bone of contention!!!
When people write n instead of and. Arghh like nails down a chalk board. So bogan.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
