Beached Whales In New Zealand :(

As some might already know there has been an incident on the 9th of February where 416 whales were beached in New Zealand's Golden Bay, and so far about 75% of those whales have already died. Volunteers have come to help the surviving whales and have managed to re-float about 100 whales, yet some of those whales CAME BACK and were re-beached and some haven't returned.


But now they have to deal with all those that have died... OVER 300 WHALE BODIES!! These whales have an average length of 7.5 meters, so just imagine how they would do it... because I certainly can't. 😮😶 Dead whales also have the tendency to bloat up with gas and, uuuuuh, pop?

CHOCOLATE!!!!! And Also Birthday....!!!!

After 3 weeks of NO CHOCOLATE, limited processed food or sweets we are finally allowed to eat chocolate. It will only last 10 days though, and it started on my Birthday, the 3rd of February. Speaking of which, I got a huge 10 piece babushka doll set! I've got a little collection of babushka dolls (also known as Russian or nesting dolls) but this one is my favourite, the little baby one is SO SMALL! Although... I've got to be careful with the baby one... because I'll inhale it and I'll choke to death..... 😮!!! But anyway.... I also got a little measuring set for cup's, as a lot of the recipes I find measure in cups it will come in handy, but that's not the best part about them.... THEY'RE  A SET OF THREE BABUSHKAS!!! I also now have an emoji themed bed room.
