Morning folks.
Yesterday I had an operation on my left eye and had a somewhat restless night and when I got up this morning the wife said "how you feeling this morning" and I replied "right as ninepence" to which she asked "what's that mean".
Soo I looked it up on the web and got this site

Its amazing the things we use in speech and never really know where they originate from.
