a full English breakfast – a cooked breakfast, usually with bacon, sausage, eggs, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, toast and tea
to take a long time – to happen slowly
the rush hour – the period of time in the morning and evening when the traffic is very busy with people going to and from work

all over the world – everywhere around the earth
(I’ll be) back in a bit – (I’ll) return soon
