Toby's Diary

Mum didn't listen to me

At bedtime we all go to the bedroom. Josie curls up in her little bed, mum curls up on her big bed and I curl up on my armchair. I like to be able to see my mum at night time but she does roll around so the chair is just perfect.

Yesterday my mum started pushing it about.

"What are you doing?" I asked, all agitated.

"At the moment the chair has its back to the radiator. I thought if I swivelled it round you could enjoy the warmth better" she explained.

"But I won't be able to see you while we sleep. What if I have bad dreams? Or if you do and need me to snuggle?"

But mum was set on her course of action. She seemed to think that the warmth would make everything OK. The chair was swivelled about so its cushion faces the warm and its back the room.

Bedtime came. I tried to settle on the cushion and the warm was nice but I couldn't sleep without knowing that if I woke up and looked over I would see my mum. There was only one thing for it. I perched myself on the back of the chair. It's not as good a place to sleep but at least I had the comfort of knowing mum was there.

She woke up in the night and saw me there.

"That doesn't look very comfy," she commented.

"I did try and tell you," I replied.


So once more the chair got swivelled and now it's sideways on so I get toasty warm and I can see my mum while I sleep. Perfect! If she had listened the first time we could have done this before.

It is still cold but not so bad as it was and my mum did got to work yesterday. She said it took a long time to get the car un-iced up. Her boss was happy with all the work we had helped her do so that was good.

I like sleeping in a chair by my momma's bed.

I would love to sleep in a chair by mum's bed she gets so restless some night. The other night she forgot I was beside her and nearly dumped me out of bed. Mind you Toby I like to know where she is at night too.
