Handy Idioms


Jientje at Heaven is in Belgium, hosts A Thousand Words In Idioms.

Here are two very handy idioms.

Hand to mouth
Someone who's living from hand to mouth, is very poor and needs the little money they have coming in to cover their expenses.
Hand in glove
If people are hand in glove, they have an extremely close relationship.

Great Idioms Dr John. I got the second one confused with Hat in Hand. Hmmm, how opposite was that??
