    Re: Imagine

    To fit the pattern of the first two, you can use "my" in the third.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Let me complete my list a bit and correct it, if necessary.
    Fancy/Imagine their having forgotten!
    Fancy/Imagine our having forgotten!

    Hi Altiwife,

    I am only a student but I would definitely say no to the above two examples.

    Thanks,

    Paul
