.. where Ikea builds a stone castle

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

for a start, i have a little question for u -why do you think is Estland called ‘Estonia’ in English? this, for a giraffe, is a gr8 mystery. but i have one idea – because they have a lot of stones!!

so, instead of all these great stones going to waste, i decided to build an eSTONEan castle, so to speak, hehe! and there is no better place to build a castle than Saaremaa, it seems to me. because, u know, Saaremaa is quite flat. like Holland for example. so, it is good to build a stone castle there – because you can see it from very long ways away. or, u know, when it is ready, amd you climb the tallest tower – and you are giraffe with a long neck – then you can see quite far too u know! in fact, i saw two rainclouds coming REALLY far away. because they only arrived in the evening. so, they must have been far. OR they took a really long detour…
but, before that, i had to actually build the towers. so, here’s me building:

so, this is going to be one of the small towers. u can see lots of towers in the background – i guess everyone wants to build a stone castle these days! but they only managed a tower or two, not more i’m afraid..

so, here’s me building some more. this is going to be a stone wall with a hole-y stone on top of it. quite fun stone, actually, hehe!

and here, something interrupting the building of the stone wall – woohoo! it’s a shadow!!
i have to tell u that giraffes are not very fast stone-wall builders. quite slow actually. but with all these fun shadows everywhere… it takes almost three times as much time!! i could say that building a stone wall with gr8 shadows like this one takes many more times the time it takes to play all levels of the giraffe apple-eating game. that’s quite a lot!

but, after all this great fun building, it’s ready! please, come look a little closer!

see, this is the courtyard. please, do come in.

no need to take off shoes, there are still stones everywhere! and mind your head! especially, if you are a giraffe! it’s because of the gate that i built here. u know, i wanted to build a gate with closed top because that way u can walk around the stone wall without ever needing to come off. so, it’s a bit like a carousel really. except that u need to walk or run yourself. i must say i ran three laps and my head got all dizzy. it’s probably because of my long neck, u know..

also, it is very well known fact that stone castles are REALLY good for playing hide-and-seek. here’s me showing the gr8 hide-and-seek potential of the stone castle. see if you can find me, hehe!

so, this is pretty much it, really. gr8 fun! ooh, almost forgot – finally this is where you need to climb in order to enjoy the view. it’s nice! have u built a stone castle this year? if not, let me know, we can go and build a couple more before the winter comes. not so much fun building a stone castle in the winter i’m afraid. much nicer to stay inside and play yatzy!
or read a book! because, u know, a really nice book came out, which has almost more than 1 MILLION giraffes inside!! it’s quite a big mystery in fact, how did they get there? but it sounds really good. u can check out this book over here! ps. if you have the book and u found me, Ikea – let me know!!!! until then,have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea solves a mystery!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

i don’t know if u have noticed, but quite often when im about to go and do something fun, Undu has dissappeared somewhere? so, i decided to put a “tail” on him – me! (although, in fact he already has a tail, like all wolves – so in case it is confusing, i tried to observe him very closely).

i must say, Undu really was not all that suspicious most of the morning, u know. he went about his usual chores of drinking milk, looking at the cow, cleaning out his pocket and sharpening claws. although i must say, he did sharpening claws twice! so, when i think about it now, it does seem a bit more suspicious than usual.. and then of course, it was quite obvious when he did not join me, teddies and Angel in playing yatzy! so, still playing, i kept a close watch on him from the corner of my eye! – i have quite big eyes, u know, i can keep an eye on lots of things! and, sure enough, suddenly Undu had sneaked out of the door! i excused myself and started to follow!

luckily undu did not go very fast. probably because of two things – he had now his sheep hat on (!!!) and also it was very very very hot! but it was good pace actually for sneaking (one of my favorite things to do also). we did not go to far really, and by the time we got there i had already solved the mystery – Undu was about to go SHEEPING! and he did! here’s a fotograf for you to see also (note the sheep on the background):

mystery solved! u must be curious to find out what ‘sheeping’ is? it is quite simple, really. it is when you go and mingle into a flock of sheep, dressed as a sheep, so that they don’t find out you are not a sheep! it’s actually one of Undu’s favorite things to do, as i found out! but he never takes friends – and it’s quite obvious why – we don’t have the sheep costumes!

but, it does seem a lot like a fun thing to do. maybe i will try to get a sheep costume for myself from somewhere? perhaps my friend Shaun can help – i will try to find out. Until then – let me know what fun’s been happening in your flock of sheep, hehe! have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea did not travel to

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
and u know what – it is still very very warm and seems like most of the interenet in the countryside has melted or something. it’s sort of a mystery, but Undu tells me it is because of the Thunder. well, i know one thing – i have been really really busy and i don’t have much time for a long story today. so i will only post one photograph of this funny man that i found. he is really a road-sign in real life, im afraid, for one city that i did not travel to! although, i heard there were lots of things happening also. so, have fun for now and cu l8er!
