Cards close to your chest and Ace up your sleeve and getting cold feet correct.The shadow phrase isn't the official one but I like it. Egg one incorrect.

angemski I had never heard of this either but isn't it strange how things come to your attention within hours. Matt Lucas used that very phrase on Lorraine this morning.

Lynibis Tbh when I looked at the picture for the first time I thought that the nail had gone through the head and thought was it 'in one ear and out the other'. The problem with all of these is the small sized picture. πŸ‘€

Silver spoon in mouth (usually; born with silver spoon in mouth - perhaps that spoon has been there since birth).πŸ˜€ EDIT - Just realised already spotted.

Not sure but if that's a broken egg under his back foot, could it be "walking on egg shells" ?

Lol I wish I could, but I’m useless with these kind of things. I’m not good with riddles either. But good to see the answers so I can try to figure it out

gerrykelly25 I completely agree - yesterday was my first 'low' day and this occupied my brain for quite a while so had to share. I love a puzzle that isn't easy to solve. πŸ˜†
