In Reply to: End of pea time posted by Ilaria on September 23, 2005
: Hello! I'm doing a work for my masters final dissertation about idioms. Does anyone know anything about "the end of pea time". I checked the archives but couldn't find no answer. On a web site somebody from Ireland has written "...we were exhausted, looking like the end of pea time"..is it something bad? because I remember someone said her/his grandma used to use it to refer to wonderful things.
It's in the archives -- http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/6/messages/853.html
