    I like this too. Meaning something is easy to do? . . . . . I've always muddled up the meaning with 'dawdle', but now that I've looked up the dictionary for clarification, means slow or to lag behind . . . . . . I always thought 'dawdle' was a Scottish word meaning easy to do. Like 'scoosh'.

  4. If a scottish dog is a dug then a doddle must be a duddle. :¬))

  6. To me, "it's a doddle" = "it's easy" and "to dawdle" = "to amble".
    Not sure if my spellings of doddle/dawdle would be correct though.

    They are correct - gold star to you [*] It's just me being a numpty who gets muddled all the time.
