Idioms

This week our group explored some sayings or idioms we use in our everyday lives.
‘ Break a leg’. ‘ A wet blanket’. ‘A penny for your thoughts’ ‘ an arm and a leg’
We really had fun with these and can’t help slipping new examples into our conversations!
Share any you know or get your family to share some they know or you hear them say
