If you have a bone to pick with some­one, you are an­gry with that per­son about some­thing, and you want to dis­cuss it.

Loads (ifml.) means a large num­ber or amount of some­thing.

“Do” is usu­ally the cor­rect word to use when talk­ing about work: “do the house­work” or do the bak­ing. “Make” is used to ex­press the idea of cre­at­ing some­thing, as in “make a cake”.

When you sit down and re­lax, es­pe­cially with your feet raised and sup­ported, you put your feet up.

If you are able to deal suc­cess­fully with a large amount of work or a tricky task, you can say you can han­dle it.
