Inching along = M25 on a Monday morning! grin

I like the expression ''plodding along''.

Got it, two point fiving along, to the tune 'Slip sliding away' by Simon and Garfunkel.grin

Creeping along.

No, I don't need to know for any specific reason. It's just an expression I've found myself using and idly wondered about bringing into the 21st century!

Fingertipping along?

Do you need a translation? As these don't always work in different social setings.

I like the phrase but it's (very mildly) bugging me!

'Creeping along' just doesn't work as well for me
