against the clock

are you as keen as mustard?

the early bird cathes the warm

as cool as a cucumber

Mother of parliaments - Rocked the nation

What an ugly duckling

To get a handle on

Snouts in the through- Fingers in the till

On the back burner

It's a bit much

Each to its own

Waiting in the wings

Zero hour

Can you do an U-turn?

made my day

I miss the heat

born with a silver spoon

Pushed so many people's buttons- slow to anger

Feather their own nest -Wistleblower

Laughing stock- Cleaning out of the stable

I miss the heat

A chain is not stronger than it weakest link

Serve as a mirror- Come clean

A lame duck

Daft as a brush

Vent your spleen

Labour of love

On the back foot

x rated warning

a face like thunder

A bad taste in the mouth - Baying for blood

neck and neck

Step up to the mark - Food for thought

The laws of the land- Flown out of the window

the apple of my eye

The nature of the beast

As mad as a march hare

A yen

A wake up call

Packed like sardines

Face the music

Have baked ideas

Rack and ruin

Vicious circle

All mouth and trousers

A picture is worth a thousand words

Are you safe and sound?

Are you a yes man?

Safe as houses

Jack the lad

Made of money

Not a snowball chance in Hell

Call a spade a spade

A breath of fresh air

I'll eat my hat

A pain in the neck

I'll cross that road when I come to it

Hair of the dog

A hen-pecked husband

Kangaroo Court

Get a grip
