British Sayings

3 months ago
Donkey's Years
The translation of donkey’s years? A really long time. This saying refers to the fact that donkey’s have long ears, which rhymes with “years,” which means a long time... Got it?

Bob's Your Uncle
If you hear it, the appropriate answer is not, “No he’s not, my uncle is Jack.” Bob’s your Uncle actually means “there you go!”

Chin Wag
A chin wag actually refers to having a good old gossip or a catching up session with someone. Usually accompanied by a good old English cuppa (cup of tea). Don’t get it? Well just think about how your chin moves up and down when you talk, not really a wag but somewhere near.

It's been donkey's years since I had a good chin wag :)
