It would be rude, I think, not to comment on the lack of a blog last week.  I was, you see, a bit pressed for time, a bit too busy.  So, I’ll take this opportunity to talk (or type) about time.  (What is it?  Does it even exist?  Only joking!  Don’t worry.  I won’t be getting philosophical this, or any other week.)  What I’d like to focus on is idioms, specifically those to do with time.  There are some songs that could help us:


We all know they’ve been around for a long time so they should know.

They may even feel like this guy, appearing for the second time on this blog, the timeless Satchmo, Louis Armstrong:


Can you think of any other “time” expressions?  If so, leave a comment and let us know.  We’d appreciate you giving us your time.

Here are a few to get started on.  Maybe you could leave a comment explaining them and giving a sample sentence:

1.  in the nick of time

2.  from time to time

3.  There’s no time like the present.

4.  It’s (only) a matter of time.

5.  in no time (at all)

Don’t worry if you only know one or two – post a comment anyway.


Til next time, seeya.
