Like an old cheese … a surprising and original way to describe a lively mind, writhing with ideas and plans. Hope you have moments like this, when they flow so thick and fast that ‘one knocks another over’.

‘I think my head’s all alive inside like an old cheese, for I’m so full o’ plans, one knocks another over.’
