Heres some that i tend to use from time to time might not be the exact meaning of them but thats what i take them as:

No Dramas - no problems, all good
Shonky business - bad business
happy camper - a happy person
bodgying it up - doing a quick fix
cookin with gas - it's all ok
get tanked - get drunk

ehh err i'm sure theres heaps more but can't think of em at the moment.
