    Default Dear Teacher,

    Could you please explain me the meanings of the following:

    1) I had as good as given him a weelborrow.
    2) I don't know about you, but come to the winter months, my body feels sleepy.

    Many thanks and have a wonderful day!

    #1 I had in effect/virtually given him a wheelbarrow

    #2 I don't know about you, but come the winter.... = but when the winter months come [an example of inversion]
