    I will try a few:

    cont.
    3. not all there/ have a screw loose/
    4. put on a brave front / Dutch courage (after drinking)
    5. afraid of one's shadow / to be chicken-hearted / to chicken out
    6.
    7.
    8. water under the bridge?
    9. all thumbs
    10. The Bells of St. Lemons, thick-headed, thick as a brick


    Thanx for your help
    Can't think of more right now. I will keep on thinking...
