Snow, snow-storms, snowmen, winter cold… I like these things so much! Seeing on fallen snow-flakes is very fascinating way of spending time for me. And winter games, snowballs, skating, skiing, sledging, hockey and many self-made games, are so funny and cheerful amusements. And when I have a romantic mood (It happens not often:)), the kisses with boyfriend under the snowfall will stay in my mind long time…

Today we had the second snowfall this year. (The first one was near 8th of November) Hm… ‘snowfall’ is very strong word, maybe it’s better to say, that there some snow-flakes fell down :)) and melted instantly. Anyway it was cool snowy day:)

Two days ago I called to my friend from the USA, and she told me about the big reductions on prices of different things in shops, super markets. And the next big shopping day she will have on 22nd December. :\\\ Why don’t they exist in Ukraine? Eeeeee… I would make so many purchases if they are… Anyway, money is never enough for me when I’m in some shop:)

Today I’d like to share with you idioms on ‘Lifestyle’ theme:

After five years of life in the fast lane, Janie decided to give up her well-paid city job and start a new life in a small country village. But although she was pleased to escape from the rat race, she felt like a fish out of the water in the country. Now she’s back in the city, wiser for her experience.

• life in the fast lane – fast, high-pressure lifestyle

• rat race – competitive working life

fish out of the water - uncomfortable in a strange situation

Collect the English idioms is one of my ‘hobby’. I'd like to write down some idioms on different themes in my blog. I think it will be useful to those who learn English.

If you want to say ‘no’ to an invitation for now but keep the invitation open for another time you can say:

• Can I take a rain check?

If someone invites you to an event that is dependent on something else, such as good weather you can use next phrase:

• (Let’s keep our) Fingers crossed.

If someone offers to pay for drinks or meal, but you want to pay:

• This is on me.
