    What does it mean?

    Between one thing and another , CHARLES did not finish typing his paper last night.

    What does "between 1 thing and another" mean?


    Thanks a lot!

    Charles kept on being interrupted - the telephone rang, the kettle boiled over, the cat was sick - so between one thing and another [thing], he failed to finish typing his paper.

    You will also see this as "what with one thing and another".
