Tinkles had the idea of making a gingerbread house today, which is a lovely idea, but in trying to make one before us we can see her ideas are not quite the same as ours…

Well, it is logical to use ginger and bread to make gingerbread, but not quite the reality! And in building our house we do use drills and screwdrivers, amongst other tools, so getting them out also makes some sense, but not what I usually use for preparing anything edible!

And having got out some tools and ingredients, I think it became a little difficult for Tinkles so she adjusted her note to us and stopped making her house…

Has your elf been a bit literal or logical with anything in your house?

How do you make a gingerbread house?
