Yes, Val,
 
I am EXTREMELY BUSY!
 
I am rushed off my feet; I am run off my feet; I am as busy as a bee; I ´ve been kept busy; I am a busy little beaver; I ´ve been beavering away all day; I have my hands full at the moment; I ´ve been on the go all week; I ´ve been up to my ears in work; I ´ve been up to my eyes in work; I ´ve been snowed under with work; I ´ve been working like the clappers; I ´ve been working non-stop; I haven ´t had a minute to myself; I ´ve been running around like a madman; I ´m so busy, I don ´t know whether I ´m coming or going; ... yes, Val, I have been VERY BUSY!
 
Fortunately, I am not ´a busybody´, because I DON´T ´poke my nose into other people´s business´. I hope these expressions help you a little bit.

Perfect collection of idioms and phrases, I must say! Would any of you, generous experts, kindly explain what the phrase ´work like a trouper ´ means? I came across this phrase in one of ´English File ´ series textbooks (Level C1). Let me give you the exact quote - ´... But I did come to London, and even though it was a very hard environment, I worked like a trouper and was very quick to learn ´. From the context it seems clear that it has to do something with working hard and diligently, what I would like to know is the origin of the idiom and why the word ´trouper ´ is involved... The word trouper is defined in dictionaries as a ´member of a theatrical troupe ´, which makes the idiom and its origin even more confusing....

Sorry Les!
Giorgi, I took that to mean trouper as a soldier, but the theatre definition sounds more likely. I suppose ´the show must go on ´ so members of the troupe never stop... We also say ´work like a Trojan. ´
