Summer has come back here which is what we wanted. The days are sunny and warm and we can't wait for my mum to come home from work so we can grab a quick supper and get out there and play. I say we because even Josie comes out for a while.
But as it gets darker she goes in and mum draws the curtains. That's weird because to me that's the most exciting time. The bugs get going and everything is a little bit more mysterious in the dark.
So just what are mum and Josie doing behind the curtain that is so much better than frog hunting? They claimed to be quietly watching TV but I was suspicious. I would catch them out. I ran full pelt, dived under the curtain and threw myself in the room.
But I was too slow. They were both sitting innocently on their chairs. I looked all round for clues - maybe a frog leg or a corner of cat treat bag or the feathers of Da Bird but there was nothing. I ran out. I would have to be faster next time.
About five times I ran in hoping to see what they were doing but every time they managed to be just sitting there. Mum said that's because that's really all they were doing but I still have my doubts. Actually mum was laughing at me for my mad sprints in to the room, wide eyed stares and double quick dashes out but the laugh will be on them when I catch them out one day.

Oh Toby - I think you're on to something! Josie and your mom seem really suspicious!
Maybe you'll catch them next time! I doubt they're just watching TV.
Behind the curtain, hmmmm. Yes, that does sound suspicious.
Mate let me tell you something about humans that I've come to know since I've been around a while. Humans like us are creatures of habit and my humans always watch tv after tea unless it my mum and then she does stuff on the computer but she different.
So when you find your mum and Josie watching tv that's what they will be doing for the night. Me I like to sleep through as much as I can. Mind you the running around like manic sounds like fun anyway.
