Today’s idiom: “Over the moon”.

22 Sep

When you are “over the moon”, you are very happy or delighted about something. Perhaps you achieved a difficult task, or somebody gave you a surprise that made you very happy.

For example, “I was over the moon when she phoned me unexpectedly”, or “She was over the moon at passing her driver’s test at the first attempt”.

In other words, you are so happy that you could jump over the moon with joy!
