My answers are:

1. a scheduled time

2. do it now!

3.

In essence, I would say the following are the equivalent meanings from my understanding:

1. “It’s time to go to the dentist for your annual check-up.” - let's not delay or wait.


2. “It’s high time you learnt to iron your clothes for yourself.” I think this is the same as "it's about time..." meaning now is the time


3. “If you’re thinking of tidying your room, there’s no time like the present.” - now is the good time to....

4. “I’ve told you time and time again that I don’t take sugar.” - As I said many times before....
5. “Hello, it’s Sam here. I hope I haven’t caught you at a bad time.” - I hope I am not interrupting you...
6. “I wasn’t really looking forward to this trip but actually I’m having the time of my life.” - I am enjoying every minute like I never did before on this vacation.
7. “I’m having a hard time getting to the shops and back each day.” -I am confronted with difificulties .....
8. “I’d love to go on talking all day, but as they say; time is money!” - Let's make it quick and not waste any time
9. “I’m sorry Sam, I just can’t spare the time to help you with the clearing up.” - I am sorry, I am really busy. Another expression is "squeeze any time"


10. “If you’ve ever got time on your hands, come up and visit us on the 3rd floor.” - If you free time and you are not busy...

11. “Sorry, your time’s up now. Put your pens down now and stop writing.” - Your allowed time has expried.....


12. “You are wasting your time calling me to say you’re sorry. Goodbye Sam!” - Your effort is not go to yield any positive results.
