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

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

Fingertipping along?

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

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!

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

Inching along = M25 on a Monday morning! grin

I like the expression ''plodding along''.
