Toby's Diary

We saw mum on TV

But it wasn't very exciting!

The show she saw recorded was on Friday night and she seemed very excited to see it which we thought was odd as she aleady knew what happened. But we're amenable cats and gathered round to watch with her. Josie had mum's lap and I had the arm of the sofa next to her.

It started and they ran the view over the back of the audience's heads. Mum froze it and pointed- "See the bald guy's head? I'm three along to the right."

There was an embarrassed silence.

"So we're just looking at the back of your head?" I asked.


"We already knew what that looked like," I pointed out. "Is there maybe more of you later?"

"No. That's it, but you'll enjoy the show. It was very funny."

Then I couldn't help but notice something else.

"You're right down in the middle at the front."

"We are," she said proudly, "we queued for hours to get the prime position."

"And did the camera lady queue for hours too? She's standing exactly in front of you with a massive camera."

Mum had to admit she saw half the show through the lens of the camera filming it as they were indeed sitting right behind the camera and those TV cameras are big. So we've suggested she say home and watch the whole thing through the lens of the camera filming it next time and keep us company.

In other news I don't want to jinx it but Spring seems to be here. Mum mowed the lawn yesterday. Our heating has gone off. And Josie has been outdoors for more than five minutes. Not much more but it really looks like Spring has Sprung!!

MOL! I see da back of my momma's head all the time too, I don't think I'd be interested in watching it on TV.

Was it the Graham Norton show? Mom loves that one!

It was "Have I got News for You". Mum queued opposite the Graham Norton audience and they walked past the famous red chair on their way in. Mum loves Graham Norton too so maybe next time she'll go and see him!

Well, congratulations to your spring. It is in the 40s here, very cold. 7 - 9 Celsius. I was only out for 5 minutes freezing my furry behind. There is nothing to mow because nothing grows yet.

Oh Mietzi, sheer up. The Robins are here. Surely Spring is right around the corner.

Toby, maybe next time your Mom is at the taping of a TV show, she could scream and holler really loud. Like the Americans do when they're in the TV audience. Maybe that would get the front of her head on TV.
