i before e, but not in Milly

I am surprised that most people get it wrong. I am surprised that given the clarity of the header picture they still get it wrong. The picture at the top was taken by Nick Wall editor of canal boat magazine. I think he may be up set that people are having trouble with the clarity of his picture.

Oh sorry! It’s the name of my boat. It is not Millie M, it’s Milly M! Not difficult to work out. There is no ie in Milly, see there isn’t, yet people still spell it Millie. Why?

My mother has always been a Milly never a Millie and the boat was named after her so I know its Milly. Come on guys get it right!
