1
Once in a blue moon

When something happens once in a blue moon, it very rarely happens.
  • "Since my daughter was born, I only go out with my friends once in a blue moon."
  • "My brother is so good at chess I only beat him once in a blue moon.
2
(Living) on another planet

When you say that someone is living on another planet, you are saying either they do not notice what is happening around them or they are not realistic.
  • "He's living on another planet if he thinks he's going to get £5000 for his old car."
  • "She wasn't listening to me at all. Sometimes I think she's living on another planet."
3
Come back down to earth

We come back down to earth when we have to start doing something boring/not fun after doing something fun.
  • "I came back down to earth on my first Monday back in work after my holiday in Spain."
  • "She came back down to earth when she got back after the weekend to find she had so many work emails to answer."
4
Under the sun

Everything under the sun is everything that exists or is possible:
  • "We stayed up all night talking. We must have talked about everything under the sun."
  • "She's very intelligent and knowledgeable. She can talk about everything under the sun."
5
Over the moon

When you are over the moon, you are very happy about something. This expression is used but these days it is considered a cliché (a phrase or an idea that has been used so often that it no longer has much meaning and is not interesting).
  • "I was over the moon to find out my wife's pregnant."
  • "He was over the moon with his IELTS score."
