.. where Ikea gets new sneakers and goes wild strawberry hunting!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what happened! apparently my good friends read about how much we – giraffes, like me – like running on this blog. and they made me a present – sneakers!! and the gr8 thing is – they are orange, my favorite colour! jei jei jei!

and i can secretly tell u that i did not even have a birthday or any other day, really! so, a gr8 surprise for me! i like surprises a lot!! so, now i can do running properly. u know, when it is raining and so – it is not very comfortable to run without sneakers, i’m afraid.

to test out the sneakers, i did not go running however :) instead, i went for wild strawberry hunting, hehe!

as u know, i like wild strawberries a lot, after last year we went WSBH with the Teddies. but this time i just went on my own, for three reasons: 1. i had sneakers 2. teddies were not around and 3. wild strawberries were not too far. quite near in fact, just in front of the house, hehe! so, i was pretty sure that my hunting trip will be successful and therefore it was gr8 for testing out the new sneakers. and the strawberries were just really gooooood too!

so, now i will go back to eat some more. with milk!! what about you? have you gone strawberry-hunting already this year? let me know! have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea goes wild-strawberry-hunting with Saab och Volvo

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

Apparently, there is this other thing better than strawberries – you’re right – wild strawberries! so, with a little planning, we successfully excecuted this idea from couple of weeks back. unfortunately Undu wasn’t there because we could not find him as we set out for the expedition. actually, nobody knows where he was during that time. although i think he was sheeping…

so then, it was up to me and teddies. we set out to explore the wilderness with Volvo in charge:

as i turns out, they have a pretty good nose for wild strawberries! also i found out that wild strawberries are teddies’ number three favorite berries. number two being cowberries and number one – blueberries! well, that’s quite obvious really, just look at their face, hehe. but i have to say, Volvo and Saab eat pretty much everything. like paper for example!
in fact, even on our way i already spotted some, like here for example:

so, before the teddies could find out, i quickly grabbed..

.. and wohoo, it tasted well! :)

so, in no time we managed to hunt down a great spot of wild stawberries! in the fotograf u can see everyone concentrating on this little game we invented in the process. it is called “fun foraging” and it’s very simple – to find and eat as much berries as possible in least amount of time. it is great fun, quite recommended! here’s some fotografs of teddies playing:

->> Volvo jostling his way to the catch..

->> Saab about 1 second before the little red treats are no more.. (u can see Volvo just behind him in the grass!)

->> Volvo now posing for the camera. just for a second really!

->> and here’s everybody sunbathing, totally loaded with strawberries i’m afraid!

it was in fact quite hard to move after such intense and fun game that we had. i think i even stretched my neck a little (it’s ok by now). apparently, Volvo won the game. we agreed with the teddies to have a followup for the hunt soon too. they suggested to go for the blueberries this time and i agreed. im not such great fan of blueberries myself, but i think it will be fun to see Volvo and Saab playing fun foraging again, hehe! what about you, have u played fun foraging? perhaps you have a different name for it – let me know! have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea is having lots of fun :)

Hello there! It’s me Ikea!
well, it’s not the blog mystery that’s so fun as u might think. and i have to tell u it is quite mysterious and it might not be over yet! i have to keep an eye on Angel, he’s my prime suspect right now.. but, it has been quite a lot of fun happening other than blog mystery. for example, i was watching football!! not that i haven’t watched football before, but it was the oranges who played and won, jei!! here’s me and undu watching:

another fun thing i discovered is that with the twitter. for example if u use #NED there is a little flag of Netherlands! and when u use #worldcup then u can see a little ball!! very nice! check it out!

but also, i was busy with some other fun things. for example, this other day i discovered this very long road:

it goes right into the sea, i’m afraid. with all this sun outside, of course i could not resist to do some sunbathing, hehe!

then, last weekend i was doing bag-hopping-on-a-stone! have u tried it? it looks pretty much like this:

it is very good fun and a little scary. especially if u are a giraffe, like me! u can do it on your own, but it usually helps if u have someone helping with the bag. because it CAN be a little heavy. u know, if there are books also inside the bag, for example. or other things.

also, u can do bag-hopping not only on stones, but pretty much everywhere u go. u know, it can get you very nice places! for example i got to this very very very nice place with all the wild strawberries!!!!

wohooo, i think wild strawberries are climbing right up into my top 100 best things to eat chart!! in fact, i am contemplating putting together an expedition to go wild strawberry-hunting in very near future. i know the teddies are in, not sure about undu. he’s not so much into vegetables, u know! but i have to convince him, he knows these woods and meadows inside out. also, he always has some fun story to tell!

so what’s up in your neck of woods? any wild strawberries by chance? let me know and cu l8r!!
