A bitter pill to swallow

A chip of the old block

A cock and a bull story 2

A fly in the ointment

A leopard can’t change its spots

A penny for your thoughts

A penny saved is a penny earned

A square meal

A still tongue keeps a wise head

A storm in a teacup

A wolf in sheep’s clothing

A wolf in sheeps clothing 2

A workbad man always blames his tools is

Alive and kicking

All ears

All fingers and thumbs

All that glitters is not gold

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Against the clock

An idle brain is the devil’s workshop

Appearances are deceptive

As blind as a bat

As busy as a bee

As quick as a lightning

As wise as an owl

Bark up the wrong tree

Barking dogs never bite

Be a big cheese

Be a big fish in a small pond

Be a snake in the grass

Be full of beans

Be long in the tooth

Be on the tip of one’s tongue

Be over the moon

Be the apple of one’s eye

Be the apple of one’s eyes

Be the last straw

Be too big for one’s boots

Be thrown in at the deep end

Be wet behind ears

Beat around the bush

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Bend over backwards

Better late than never

Better safe than sorry

Bird of a feather flock together

Bite one’s head off

Bite the hand that feeds you

Blood is thicker than water

Blow one’s own trumpet

Break the ice

Bury one’s head in the sand

Burn the candle at both ends

Bury the hatchet

Call it a day

Call it a day 2

Can’t make ends meet

Carry the can

Caught somebody red handed

Come of age

Come out of one’s shell

Cool as a cucumber

Cost an arm and a leg

Cross the bridge when one comes to it

Curiosity killed the cat

Do something standing on one’s head

Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched 2

Don’t put your eggs in one basket

Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched

Don’t judge a book by its cover

Draw a line under it

Draw the short straw

Drive someone around the bend

Drive somebody up the wall

Easy as a pie

Eat humble pie

Every cloud has a silver lining

Face the music

Familiarity breeds contempt

Feeling under the weather

Find one’s feet

Fit as a fiddle

Fit like a glove

Fly off the handle

Get something straight from the horse’s mouth

Get the sack be given the sack

Get your skates on

Go bananas

Go nuts about something

Got out of the bed on the wrong side

Grasping at straws

Great minds think alike

Happy as a clam

Have a bone to pick with somebody

Have a chip on one’s shoulder

Have a finger in the pie

Have a frog in one’s throat

Have a lot on one’s plate

Have bad hair day

Have butterflies in one’s tummy

Have one foot in the grave

Have something up one’s sleeve

Here today gone tomorrow

Hit the jackpot

Hit the nail on the head

Hold your tongue

It’s a daylight robbery

It’s not my cup of tea

Its swings and roundabouts

It’s water off a ducks back

Keep in under your hat

Keep your fingers crossed, cross your fingers

Land fall on your feet

Laughter is the best medicine

Lay your cards on the table

Lend a hand

Let bygones be bygones

Let the cat out of the bag

Life is not a bed of roses

Like a drop in the ocean

Like father like son

Live from hand to mouth

Look before you leap

Look for a needle in a haystack

Make hay while the sun shines

Making a mountain out of a molehill

Money is the root of all evil

Money makes the world go round

Move the goalpostsMiss the boat

Music to my ears

Miss the boat

Mutton dressed as lamb

No guts no glory

Not for all the tea in China

Not get a word in edgeways

Not out of the woods yet

Not to say boo to a goose

On the top of the world

One swallow doesn’t make a summer

Out of sight out of mind

Out of the frying pan into the fire

Penny wise pound foolish

Play with fire

Play with fire 2

Pull one’s legs

Pull the wool over someone’s eyes

Pull your socks up

Rain cats and dogs

Rats desert a sinking ship

Rock the boat

Rub salt in the wound

Save money for a rainy day

Scrape the bottom of the barrel

Scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours

See you on the big drum

Send someone to coventry

Shed crocodile tears

Shout at the top of someone’s lungs

Sit on the fence

Spare the rod and spoil the child

Speak off the top of your head

Spill the beans

Start the ball rolling

Still waters run deep

Take the bull by the horns

Take the leaf out of someone’s book

Take the words right out of someone’s mouth

Teach your grandmother to suck eggs

That rings a bell

That’s pie in the sky

That’s the way the cookie crumbles

The ball is in your court

The good anvil does not fear the hammer

There are plenty more fish in the sea

There is no place like home

There is no smoke without fire

Teach fish how to swin

Time is golden

To be on the ball

To have a ball

Too many cooks spoil the broth

Tough as old boots

Turn over a new leaf

You’ve put your finger on it

You can’t judge the book by its cover

You can’t judge the book by its cover

You can’t unring a bell

Walk tread on eggshells

Wall have ears

Water under the bridge

When the cat is away the mice will play

Wrap someone around your finger
