I would like to ask about the meaning of the following sentences:
1. Letís just say the finances did not quite stretch to the sitting room.
2. Busy being waited on hand and foot by your mum I heard.
ps. Is these "the meaning" and "the following" correct?
1 I assume that it means they didn't have enough money to d something to the living-room when having other work done on the house. Maybe they decorated some other rooms.
2 The person's mother does everything for them.
