  1. 1- live out of a suitcase (travel so much that you don’t unpack)
    2- drop someone a line (write a letter)
    3- put one’s feet up (relax)
    4- get a move on (hurry up)
    5- feel a bit under the weather (feel a bit down, depressed or unwell)
    6- in the nick of time (at the last moment)
