Today’s idiomatic expression is very simple – FOR A GOOD WHILE.
It’s just another way of saying:
- For quite some time
- For a long time
Basically it’s to be used whenever you want to emphasize the fact that the time-frame in question is relatively long, and typically you’d use it in following sentences:
“I haven’t seen you for a good while”
“He’s been gone for a good while, I’m not sure if he’s coming back today!”
“I guess you’ll be doing that for a good while, so I’ll come back in a couple hours, is that OK?”
