pieces of this and that

Thankyou Donna ~ you can find Donna on my side bar

Last Wednesday we went to the Doctors surgery to collect a prescription but it had not arrived ~ so we returned Thursday but still not there so once again Friday went back it had arrived but they could not find it !! hung about a little while but said we would return later but would ring first to see if it had been found ~ when Lyn phoned later it had been found and was in the fridge ~ well of course where else would it be ~ "we keep Milk in ours lol "~ seriously though the prescription had to be kept in the fridge ~

Today we went to Fakenham ~ we went to the chocolate factory ~ this is a factory shop and we bought some coffee walnut twirls ~ chocolate lollipops ~ 5 water pistols "yes you did hear right" 5 water pistols ~ one each for the children and one for me ~ to protect myself with of course ~ 6 Marks and Spencer Mugs ~ never knew they had such a variety on sale in there and must not forget the hat I got that for Abbie she just adores hats ~ nearly as much as you do Barry lol

Had to show you Lyn's greenhouse and all the things she has growing in there ~ she pruned my grapevine early in the year and it has come along so well and is covered in bunches of grapes ~ just got to turn that lovely shade of purple ~ not sure what we will do with them all we did make wine last year ~ any suggestions !!!!

Hi Ally,  Your fruit is doing very well, you could make all kinds of wine this year.  Maybe you could call it Chateau Ally de J-Land...lol!  I wouldn`t mind visiting the chocolate factory myself, though I`d probably buy everything in sight!  I`m glad you managed to get your prescription, mine often gets mixed up because at my surgery there are three other women with the same name as me! :o)

You did have some very unusual shopping there Ally was wondeing what you were going to do with all those water pistols what a great idea to buy on for yourself. Real clever that.  Love Joan.

Well done you two, the garden is a treat of delights.  Donna's graphic is very awwww, I love that.

As for the grapes Ally, wines good but if they're seedless, wizz them in the blender till all frothy, drizzle some lemon juice in, and mix in some fromarge frais or plain yogout then stick in the freezer for about 15 mins to go really cold, .......lovely and cooling on a hot day.

lolol@ water pistols........it's been a while since I played with those. Rache

Now THAT'S a hat, lol. I'm so jealous.  I hope that prescription wasn't urgent!
Grapes - make more wine of course (I like a nice full bodied red please).

You are my kind of gal Ally. I would shoot a water pistol. Too bad we don't live close, huh? lol Paula

dcmeyer420 said...

The grapes look so good. How about making grape jelly and grape juice? Though as I am a wino and so are my friends, I won't have enough wine if I were you. LOL. The greenhouse veggies look great too.

Hi Ally,

Thank you for your comments on my site, as you know I am a VERY new beginner, perhaps one day I shall learn how to make it pretty with graphics and photos like yours!

I shall be looking forward to your entries from now on!

Water pistol?! You're getting as bad as Joan, she was doing handstands and skipping!! Lyn's greenhouse stuff looks great, good enough to eat. I don't drink so I'd just eat the grapes straight from the vine! Maybe with a little cheese. Grape and chicken sandwiches are good too! Jeannette xx  

stevietwain said...

Haha..you had a water pistol yourself?
That's soo cool! LOL!! I would PAY to have seen that..hehe!

Great entry hun,

"...must not forget the hat I got that for Abbie she just adores hats ~ nearly as much as you do Barry lol"     - Ally

Don't wear a "hat" but I do have at least ten
baseball caps. My fav., primarily to keep the sun out
of my eyes while driving. In this account of your jaunts
you sound remarkably as I imagine Elizabeth II might
sound. Regal. Fecund. Light-hearted. Brava.

nedmoh said...

Hi Ally ,sounds like you had a fun shopping day,good for you having your own water pistol for protection!!!! Lyns green house looks full of good growing things  and the grapes look so big this year ,I'm sure you will put them to good use......Love Jeanxx

sdrogerson said...

water pistols...........sounds like fun~!!

Missed you at chat this morning..............

faveanti said...

Save me from Fakenham!!  I daren't go near chocolatey places.  I think you should make wine out of the grapes - what a lovely crop.  We once grew some courgettes in the garden and got loads of them but never again.  The plant was huge and took over a whole bed.  Ugly looking thing it was. - luv, Angie xx

Dear Ally,
             Oh what a beautiful journal you have.  Thank you for commenting on my new one.
    How will I ever make mine as interesting as yours.  I cant think of the right things to say or how to say them.   After I finish reading your journals I will get an idea of how to go about this journal writing.    Thank you

                                                               Myke

Have a great week!
