Expressions: " Going The Whole Nine Yards "

Written by: Peter Fishlock : 04 Jun 2019

I think it is fair to say that no matter where you are from, some time in your life you will find yourself repeating an old saying or expression without really knowing the real meaning behind it. We decided to research some of the ones we find ourselves saying over here in blighty. In this episode we take a shot at, "Going the whole nine yards".

Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality.
