.. where Ikea Meets the Flood in Tartu

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea
guess where I have been? in Tartu! the second largest town in Estland, the capital of South-Estonia. In fact, I was there for a while, but now I am back here in Kadriorg. But let me tell u what I found out. First, there was The Flood! Have u seen any floods lately? It looks pretty much like this:


But this is not all, i’m afraid. Often, there is also quite a bit of wind which blows you into the water. Lots of it, as u can see. So yes, i got a little bit wet, i’m afraid. And sick too, if u ask me. I was covered with orange spots for the whole week!!

The good news is that it was all a few weeks ago and now much of the water – actually the largest river in Tartu, Emajõgi – has now stepped down a little, so you can sit on the benches. And, the good news is also that it did not take any houses with it, luckily. (except this one very large tree-trunk where a large family of rats lived – they were relocated to the suburbs outside the city, thanks to the flooding, apparently)

Also, my friend Lotte tells me that it is perfectly normal for rivers to flood in the spring. I am still little not sure about that, because it seems more like a mystery, don’t you think? But here’s my plan – I will check it out next spring and let you know! So, until then I have a question – have u seen any floods lately? Have fun and cu l8r!


.. where Ikea and Tik go to Vihula Manor

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what! just two weeks ago it was snow all over the place – as u can see! Usually, even in Estland, by this time it is all gone. So, quite fun in fact!

However, it was a really-really secret event there, in Vihula Manor, so I can’t tell u much about it, i’m afraid. And I can tell u it was NOT related to the fact that Tik is a Moon-Rabbit. Or to the fact it was all covered in snow so we could not take more fotografs. Or maybe it is.. hehe, u can never be quite sure about things if a giraffe and a Moon-Rabbit get involved, can u?

Have u been to Vihula? Or to the Moon? let me know in comments! have fun and cu l8r!


.. where Ikea assembles a red table!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

Guess what! our new red table arrived from – yes! – IKEA! and we got to build it. Well, my friend Lotte says we did not exactly build it, because, it was almost done. So u can say we put it together. or assembled it. Either way, now we have it! Do u want to know more about it? Here comes!

so, here’s me and my friend Tik inspecting the package. The gr8 news is that in addition to the red table, there are also chairs! 2 of them, in fact.
so that is exactly what was in the topmost package. here’s me and my friends Lotte and Tik contemplating. Because, u know, at first it seems like there are too many parts! Luckily for us, my friend Lotte is quite good at these assemblies. We had the first chair together in almost no time at all!
Here’s Lotte, Tik and me with the chair. So, now we left the other chair for my friend Sipsik and moved on to the table ourselves. Here on the next fotograf, u already see two chairs completed and most of the table as well:
The gr8 thing about these IKEA tables (besides that they look nice) is that they are so easy to assemble. In fact, it took even less time for my friend Sipsik to put this other chair together. It is actually a little bit mystery to me that chairs can be so easy to assemble..
Well, the good news is that the red table and the chairs are all together now, as u can see below. So it was time to rest a little bit. But let me also tell u a secret – this table and chairs are not for us – they are for my friends Pipi and Lotta! But i have agreed with my friend Sipsik that we can use them as well. I know the Teddies want to use these chairs to climb up to the cookie jar, but i’m not so sure this was part of the agreement..? So, i have to find out. Until then, let me know if u have assembled any tables or chairs recently? Have fun and cu l8r!
