.. where Ikea learns leaves’ mistake!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

I guess u may be wondering where I have been.. Apparently i got a little stuck with first now! Yes, snow in October! This is quite early even here, in Estland. Especially for giraffes, like me! In fact, there was so much snow outside this one morning that i could not get out of the door. That was last week! After a few days, it got a little better and i managed to go outside to take a look and some fotografs. Here’s one just below in the post. The most fun part of course was with the leaves. This snow came so fast and so early that the leaves had not had time to fall yet! So all of them tried to do that once they realized their mistake, but it was too late, i’m afraid. So, there were leaves ON the snow, not UNDER. Which is quite fun! So, I will now go and see if i can take a trip to see if there is snow also outside Kadriorg and hopefully post some pics next week. Until then, let me know if there is snow where u live? Have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea gets stuck in snow.. in April!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!


i guess u are wondering where I have been during the Easter? let me tell u – i got stuck in the snow!!

yes, that’s right. we got a very nice bunch of snow! in April! i can tell u, that it is not very common here in Estland to get snow in April. Especially here in the Kadriorg area. It’s because of the Sea – which is warm, my friend Lotte says. In fact, almost all snow had melted in last couple of weeks. So, over weekend a large bunch of snow came out of nowhere!! so i went to check it out and got stuck!! well, i wasn’t stuck for all weekend of course because my friend Tik (the Moon Rabbit) found me really fast and came to rescue. But of course, then we had to go and visit some of his Moon friends and help to find the chocolate eggs. I found one with the rabbit ears, hehe! so, in fact, i will go and check if there’s any more snow left, i can do last sledging of the year! maybe.. until then, let me know what kind of fun did u have over easter? have fun and cu l8r!

.. where snow finally arrives and Ikea goes sledging

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what! it’s a new year, 2012!! i’m sure this year will be even more fun than the previous ones. because, u know, finally the snow is here, in Kadriorg!! and this happened quite mysteriously, i might add, because it was suddenly all white just on Saturday morning – just like that! and i KNOW, this time the snow machines did not work..

so, once the snow was here, i was eager to test the new sledge that had mysteriously arrived in our home just around Christmas time. and i know it was not for me*, because we, giraffes don’t do sledging very much. well, until now that is!! because, apparently, sledging is lots of fun!!
so, here’s me checking out the seat belts and other things..

..before heading out in the WILD WILD SNOW, jei..!!!

apparently, there was more snow that had not arrived during the night. Instead, it was snowing on me while sledging, hehe. i could almost not see anything AT ALL!

luckily, i had help driving this new sledge, so it was OK. we did make a big round in Kadriorg, but i don’t have more fotografs, because we were little bit afraid of this wild snow getting into the camera – because it very much tried, i can tell u! so, needless to say, sledging is lots of fun, probably will be ranked quite high on my 100 most fun ideas to do (for a giraffe) list, once i have time to put it together. but it COULD take some time, because i am very busy, especially now that all this gr8 snow is here, jei! in fact, i have to go to a secret place right now. so, until then, let me know if you have already had snow and if u have been sledging or doing any other fun things with it! Have fun and cu l8r!

* disclaimer – this sledge is actually my friend’s, Pipi’s. But she is not using it ALL the time, so me Pipi and Sipsik made a deal that (reads): “Other people (or animals – very important!) can also use the sledge – for sledging purposes only – when Pipi, or Sipsik (or their friends) are not using it at the moment.” so, it means that even my friend Angel could use it. But he’s not much into exercising, so we’ll see..
