☆ have a lot on one’s plate することが山ほどある
Have you heard of this verb phrase (kind of an idiom, I guess) before? It’s a popular one for busy people to use. It is used especially when people want to say “no” to someone who needs their help.
June 30th is the end of the financial year for Australians. My sister is an accountant, and she has a lot on her plate around the end of June. In other words, she is extremely busy. As for me, I’m a working mum, with two young kids who do a lot of sport and out-of-school activities that I need to take them too, so I too have a lot on my plate most of the time! How about you? Do you have a lot on your plate? If so, is there anything you can delegate so that you can get control of your time again?
