To look forward to something means to think of a future event with pleasurable anticipation, i.e. you are excited about something that will happen in the future.
I am looking forward to hooking up with some mates who are coming to Málaga at the end of next month. Last night I called them to tell them about my plans for things that we can do in Málaga. Thanks to you, I have lots of activities planned. They will definitely fall in love with Málaga and have a blast.
In general, what do you look forward to? Your birthday, the weekend, Halloween, important football matches, sleep? Generally speaking, I look forward to eating and drinking!!!

To be, or to feel under the weather is a common idiom used when you are not feeling 100% well. Perhaps you have a slight cold, stomach cramps, a headache or a hangover.
Last Sunday, I felt very under the weather. Unfortunately, it was completely self-inflicted! So, no sympathy required!
Why don’t I learn that it is never, ever, a good idea to mix lager and red wine?!
Anyway, personally speaking, the hangover is definitely the reason why aspirin was invented; and on a positive note, over the years I have kept a lot of chemists in business as a result of my aspirin requirements. OMG, I’m a total business angel!

However, because I thought they were extremely boring instead of listening to my teacher, I always had my head in the clouds, daydreaming about disco dancing, eye glitter and lip gloss. I was a huge day dreamer, and as expected, I failed my cookery exams.
