    Default looking for an idiom

    Hi, there!
    May I ask you a slightly unusual question?
    There is an idiom in my native language. It could be translated into English literally as “Friday comes seven times a week” or “Seven Fridays a week” (I’m not sure). We say that about a person who frequently changes his decisions or opinion.
    I wonder, if there’s in English any expression for such kind of behavior?
    Thanks!
    :)

    Here are a couple.

    For a person:
    "He was as changeable as a chameleon."

    For opinions:
    "His opinions were as changeable as the weather."

    His mind was as changeable as spring weather.
