Hi!
I can’t find in this article description about expression ‘It’s a doddle’ 🙁

Sorry my fault. I seemed to have missed out a paragraph when I put the article together. Well spotted! I’ve updated the article to include the missing paragraph.

“So if you can imagine walking along the top of a log – or walking on top of a fallen tree, which is lying on the ground – it’s quite easy to fall off it. ” Is this explanation really correct? I thought that the idiom is referring to the action when you cut the tree and it falls down (it is easy because of gravitation :D).

Hello, When something requires no skill at all, it is said to be as easy as falling off a log. Apparently, when people saw loggers walk on the logs while they were in the water, they thought it was pretty easy, until they tried it. It turned our to be very easy to fall off those logs! Looking at those YouTube videos I can honestly say it would be easy to fall off a log in water 🙂
