That gingerbread house…

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

I’m in the process of moving to London. I’m thinking about boring things like packing boxes, and telling my bank I’ve changed address.

In a bit of downtime yesterday, I had this brilliant idea: an Ikea branded gingerbread house. It would be great - it fits so well with their brand. They are well known for their flat pack furniture with helpful assembly manuals. And for some reason their food seems to be very popular at the moment - who hasn’t heard of their meatballs?

So why not combine the two together? Flat pack food.

Imagine kids constructing it with parents! It is kind of like a food construction toy. It would totally sell out, especially over Christmas.

Maybe that is why they beat me to it. It’s called Pepparkaka Hus and you can pick it up for £2.20.

I might be visiting Ikea for some shelves soon, I think I’ll be picking this up too.

Ideas are still cheap. I’ll get back to moving house. And learning Python.
