    The world is your ostrich - even.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Or any animal of your choice, really.

    Aarvarks always seem to get missed off the list, somehow. You'd think they'd come top, give their place in the dictionary. They get my vote every time.

    That's great. 'The world's your aardvark' is going to be my version from now on. I'm also keen, for obvious reasons, on 'The world's your vole', but am prepared to accept that aardvarks have precedence.

    I don't think I'd like my  world to be an oyster anyway. It sounds a bit claustrophobic.

    And a bit like phlegm.

    Can I join please? I have a mattock.  Once my customers know this they think everything is simple with one of these..... comments like could you just remove that laurel tree please? As if a mattock isn't operated by a knackered arthritic gardener!!

    Haha @WonkyWomble Two of my sisters said a similar thing yesterday “that’ll be a doddle now you have that”! 

    No, it was still knackering. My aching body this morning is evidence of that!

    Exactly! @JamesSB
    I currently have a trapped nerve in my lower back due to daily activities like that!! I happen to be a 5ft6 size 8 woman of 45 but I can still lift 17 stone due to a great deal of pigheadedness but it doesn't mean I don't feel it afterwards!!!! 😰
