Busy as a bee

If someone says you are as a busy as a bee it means you are very busy or very active.

Example: She's as busy as a bee, always going to meetings and organizing parties; The Teacher said: "I want everyone to be as busy as bees".

Did you know...?  The first recorded usage of this idiom is from well known 'Canterbury Tales' written in the 14th Century.
