My dad, ever the complimenter, used to tell me I had thighs that could kick start a jumbo jet! At least I never looked like the back end of a bus  although I might have been the size of a house 

My previous employer used to say that success comes in cans. We never did sing from the same hymn sheet so I left

that'll put    -  hair on your chest; a smile on your face; a tiger in your tank; lead in your pencil; a spring in your step....

Cross that  bridge when we come to it

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

Let sleeping dogs lie.

Green fingers       ----  probably had that one.

Lily think we've lost the plot!

I didn't realise how many expressions we use in daily life, it's a wonder we can say anything general, considering all the stuff some of us say and what some of us have posted on here. Good to learn what expressions are local and what are countrywide.

Getting to the point that I need a pen and paper to hand everytime I open my mouth.

Still having fun with it. Hope others join in.

Time waits for no man & meal needs attending to. BFN

A little bird told me, that this was just a drop in the ocean and there's plenty more where that came from.
