: Hi can someone tell me the origin of the phrase
: Bits and Bobs and its meaning I can't find it anywhere.
From various uses I found it seems to means "a variety of this and that".
Seems to be a UK thing and is often spelled "bits and BOB'S"---notice the capitalized letters.
Maybe some of you Brits out there can fill us in.
