Back to the drawing board
Something you say when you have to go back to the beginning after a major failure or setback.
Tickled pink
A drawing board is a designer’s or an architect's table, used to prepare designs and blueprints. So, going back to the drawing board must mean going back to this early stage.

The expression was first used in the USA and appeared as a caption of a cartoon by Peter Arno in The New Yorker on March 1, 1941. It depicted an engineer with a roll of plans under his arm, walking away from a crashed plane and saying “Well, back to the old drawing board.”

This term is similar to “back to square one” which refers to going back to the “start” square in a board game such as “Snakes and Ladders”.
  • - Well, that plan didn't work. Back to the drawing board.
  • - I failed my IELTS exam. Well, I guess it’s back to the old drawing board.
  • - Professor Jones had to go back to the drawing board after his experiment blew up.
Please complete the following form with your information. Thank you!
Have money to burn
To have a lot of money and spend large amounts on things that are not necessary.
have money to burn
This idiom originated in the late 1800s in America. However, no-one is entirely sure how it started being used. Some people think that it is a shortened version of the idiom “he's got enough money to burn a wet mule”, although most people believe that it has a very literal meaning – if someone has a lot of money and can burn some but still have much left over, they must be very rich!
Sophie: “Look at the new designer bag Josh bought me last week. And yesterday he gave me a Rolex watch and a fur coat!”
Joanna: “Didn’t he also buy you a new car last month? He must have money to burn.”

“They bought a large house for themselves and one for Kevin’s parents and they still had money to burn.”

“I just got a new job with a much higher salary. I’ll have money to burn next year.”
