Hello Raffles and everyone else
Gorgeous! Raffles you look like a Hollywood film star, oops! I mean :-) a pet star. Hummm… It seems you like to play Frisbee very much. Thank you for giving this homework but, never say before anyone else that idiom is a mixture between the words idiot and bum, it never means like that at all.
Here are the answers:
1)There’s no smoke without fire means nothing happens without a reason.
Adam says he was fired without knowing what he did. I will only say there is no smoke without fire.
2) Every cloud has a silver lining means there’s always something good to come after bad times.
I was very depressed when I moved to Canada for good and I couldn’t find a job. But you see every cloud has a silver lining, after having hard times for two months long I got a good job and that with an accommodation.
3) You could have knocked me down with a feather! This means something is very shocking and surprising
When I heard that you are getting married. You could have knocked me down with a feather!
4) There’s no such thing as a free lunch. This means we never get things for free, if they appear to be free, we will have to pay in some way.
I thought that the deodorant spray was a free sample that anyone could get it but there’s no such thing as a free lunch. It was only free on the purchase of a pair of jeans.
5) Give someone an inch and they’ll take a mile means if you give someone a little they will ask for more
Never lend Mike any money, he is something of a kind that you give him an inch and he will take a mile.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Let’s talk something about snacks as I had promised Tomo. In Pakistan, there are many things that are taken as teatime snacks such as roasted peanuts, poppadoms (these are round thin crisps made from rice), vermicelli (made from gram flour), samosas, cup cakes, potato crisps, and biscuits. I usually like biscuits, sometimes cupcakes and vermicelli with tea. But anything that’s on the plate is welcome wholeheartedly. A cup of tea without anything is also accepted.
Here’s a quick recipe for the tea which is made here:
Take some water and bring it to boil, add tea and let it boil for 5 minutes or so, put some milk and give one boil. Pour into the teacup and add sugar according to taste. Ginger is also added while the water is put to boil to make it ginger tea.
Best wishes to all and to Raffles and Scratchy the boss
