  1. Loved reading these! English is not my 1st language but I think/dream/use it every day 🙂 I do love a good idiom and have used a number of these. Some are beyond me though lol. Always great to learn something new 😀
    When I lived in Northern Ireland friends gave me a little book with all the phrases and sayings. First page I happened to open it at was with the word “eejit” 🙈 lol
