: : Phrase such as "This will keep you in kittles and beer"
: I'm sure this should be 'skittles and beer' - a very common pass-time in British pubs. Something which keeps you able to do these things could be very welcome.
I didnt quite understand your post so here is a definition from Webster:
Main Entry: beer and skittles
Function: noun--plural--but singular or plural in construction.
A situation of agreeable ease as in "This won't be all beer and skittles".
