better days


better days
«Лучшие дни». Что-либо или кто-либо, кто has seen better days («видел лучшие дни»), находится в плохом состоянии, потерял свою изначальную свежесть и привлекательность. Когда это выражение употребляют по отношению к людям, оно становится эвфемизмом слова poor (бедный).

Years ago she lived in a large house at the top of the hill, but now she lives in a pokey flat alongside the railway line. She's seen better days, I'm afraid. — Много лет назад она жила в большом доме на вершине холма, а сейчас живёт в тесной, убогой квартире рядом с железной дорогой. Думаю, она знавала лучшие времена.
