Ally Pally LIMERICK COMPETITION!!!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
Just got in from Ally Pally.


What a day!
It was packed! In all the many years we have done that show, 
it has never been so busy.

And we had a much bigger stand this time too!!
So Dave has shot out to get the curry,
and my job is to lay the table, heat the plates and blog!
So it’s a quickie!!
How about a limerick?
We haven’t had a limerick competition for ages!
And I do enjoy them so much, don’t you?

This is how it works.
I write the first two lines of the limerick.
You copy paste them into a comment below,
 and then finish the limerick.

Then next week, on Tuesday,
we will get the laughometer out at work, and pick a winner.
And that lucky, clever winner will receive a 
 £30 CLARITY GIFT VOUCHER.

Ready?
Here goes....

There once was a lady called Sally,
Who went up to Ally Pally. 

Over to you Virgil!!!

  17. Evening bloggy friends, hope all are well. Phoebe is much better now thankfully. Sadly my sister has had to make the heartbreaking decision to have her dog put down, the vet is coming Monday. She had been ill and the time has come. So upsetting for us all. xx

    2. Oh Donna,
      My heart goes out to your sister and all of you. It's a dreadful situation to be in - I know from experience sadly - but you have to think of the beloved pet , you wouldn't want her to be in pain os distress. On a happier note, I'm so pleased that Phoebe is much better - those healing hugs must have worked! Love and hugs, Alison xxx

  35. There once was a lady called Sally
    Who went up to Ally Pally
    She thought it fantastic
    When Barb demo’d shrink plastic
    Though she was warned it may send her doolally.

    She just had to have some
    Cos she thought it was awesome
    Now she’s stamping and shrinking
    Without even thinking
    Now watch out for our Sal and her heat gun.
