  • It’s like waving a red rag to a bull
  • The world is your oyster
  • It makes the blood boil
  • Feeling like being in quicksand
  • Feels as if the life jacket is deflating
  • There is a light at the end of the tunnel
  • Going to pieces
  • Struggling to keep my head above water
  • Scared to death
  • As white as a ghost
  • A heart of gold
  • Yo-yo feelings
  • Feel like a square peg in a round hole
  • Jumping the gun
  • You can take a horse to water but you can’t make him drink
  • The grass is always greener on the other side
  • Like father like son, or like mother like daughter
  • No use locking the stable door once the horse has bolted
  • We all don’t sing from the same hymn sheet
  • A heart of stone
  • Life is not a bowl of cherries
  • Every cloud has a silver lining
  • A rolling stone gathers no moss
  • All that glitters is not gold
  • The grass isn’t always greener on the other side
  • Don’t put all your eggs in one basket
  • Never judge a book by it’s cover
  • A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
  • A stitch in time saves nine
  • Live every day as your last as one day it could be
  • Never say never
  • Read between the lines
  • It’s not what you do but how you do it
  • Grab the bull by the horns
  • Rome wasn’t built in a day
  • There are two sides to every story
  • When one door closes another opens
  • Let sleeping dogs lie
  • A recipe for disaster
  • Food for thought
  • Fish out of water
  • Plenty more fish in the sea
  • Lightning never strikes in the same place twice
  • Every dog has his day
