    on the trot

    Dear techers,



    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    She was on the trot from early morning until late at night. (Mansfield’s “In a German Pension”)

    I’m on the trot all morning and I’m exhausted.

    I've been on the trot all day. (coll)

    to be on the trot = to be busy

    Thank you for your efforts

    Regards,


    V.
