Idiom of the Day: To be full of the joys of spring

Literal meaning:

To be unexpectedly happy.

‘You’re full of the joys of spring. What happened?’

When to use it:

Two work colleagues meet; one of them is unusually cheerful.

  • Hi Jack. You’re full of the joys of spring.

Other use:

It could also be used sarcastically, e.g. you get home from work to find your partner moaning about your credit card bill:

  • You’re full of the joys of spring!
  • I’m serious. We can’t go on like this any more, Brian.
