EXPRESSIONS WITH 'ALL'-3: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today we continue looking at expressions with the English word all. Tomorrow (Thursday) there will be no Daily Vitamin due to the fact that it is a holiday in Barcelona (La Mercè). Friday we will send the Essential Weekly Vitamin as usual.

Today's first expression is: all along

Meaning: all the time; from the beginning.

Example 1:
I had been looking for my keys for almost an hour when I realised that they were in my pocket all along. Of all the stupid things that I have done! Now I'm going to be late for the meeting.

Today's second expression is: all over

Meaning: everywhere

Example 2:
I looked all over for the keys, but I couldn't find them.

Example 3:
When we entered the house we saw things all over the place. Someone had been searching for something and left the place a complete disaster.

Have a great day. For those of you who live in Barcelona, enjoy the Mercè.
