From the LIVE LESSON

Interesting things and Idioms from the named animals
1. To rabbit on about something- to talk for a long time, nonstop, about something.
Two friends (usually women 😉) can rabbit on about nonsense forever.

2. To badger somebody - to consistently annoy someone.
'Stop badgering me about Disneyland. I know you want to go!' 3. To make a mountain out of a molehill - to make a situation sound worse than it is.
- 'Dentists are devil-worshippers, they love pain'
- 'shut up, stop making a mountain out of a molehill and go and see one.' 4. To squirrel away - to hide or store something to use in the future.
'I'm squirrelling my savings away for the holiday next year'

5. As blind as a bat!
'You need to see the optician again. You're as blind as a bat!' 6. As cunning as a fox!

Speak like a Brit

To call time on - to signal the end of an activity.

Example
He called time on his football career and retired.

Most people call time on their lessons when they get to intermediate level... and then forget everything.

I've been rained on, shone on, serenaded and fed, around Covent Garden in London.
Thanks for the fantastic vegan (yes, vegan!) grub @mindfit_bodyfit -the first time I've had the pleasure of trying something non-carnivorous. Mum once said 'a dinner without meat, isn't a proper meal' and I've carried the torch since. However, today's restaurant went a little way in changing that mindset.

With heavy feet I've made it back home but not back to the adopted motherland. Yet. See YOU soon 😉

Soul searching - a period of deep thinking about feelings and emotions to help decide a future action.

Speak like a Brit!

Early Doors - earlier; before

Example -
Let's get there early doors, so we can get a good chair while we watch the footy.

We should get to the airport early doors so we can get some duty free.

I'm going to finish work early doors then go and see a friend.
