    Hello

    Dear teacher

    what do these terms mean?

    toodles

    A mill cannot grind with water that is past.

    It is an undoubted truth that the less one has to do, the less time one finds to do it in

    Before you milk a cow, tie it up

    best wishws

    toodles - farewell
    tootles - amble along aimlessly

    It means don't brood on the past, get on with your life, what's done is done, water under the bridge, can't turn the clock back now, you cannot unscramble eggs, etc.

    I think it means that the more time you have the more likely you are to put things off, you will simply procrastinate and drag your feet on having those things done while you can.

    Never heard that one before.
