I really want to improve my spelling and grammar but confess to being very confused about the use of apostrophes.
I understand they are used to indicate missing letters e,g, can't, it's etc but really can't get my head around the rules about plurals and possession. The more I try and read the more confused I get.
Can anyone please try and explain things for my simple brain.
Thanks in advance ...

How funny. They were always referred to as 'Boots the Chemist' and even if it were Boot's the Chemit that doesn't make grammatical sense. confused

Why I give a toss I really don't know. grin
