Life of Riley

Life of Riley‘ was a phrase I heard many times when I was young.  It meant I had good or comfortable life.

Other phrases used on a regular basis were:

Money for old rope

Cheap at half the price

A flash in the pan

Under the weather

Jumping the gun

Keep your shirt on

Raining cats and dogs

All at sixes and sevens

Take it with a grain of salt

Dressed to the nines

What phrases do you remember from your young life?
