    1.) It's far too wet to go for a walk. Why don't we head for that cafe instead?
    -- A "heading" is the direction that a boat or plane (or person) is navigating toward. To "head" somewhere means 'to move in a specific direction'.

    2.) I'm fed up with working my fingers/hands.wrists to the bone. It's time I found a job with shorter hours or a better salary.
    -- The correct expression is "working my fingers to the bone". It means 'to work very, very hard'!
