We’d just settled down in Mamgu’s front room to watch Pobl y Cwm when a load of interference came on the telly. Morris had just got up to give it a whack when this horrible face appeared through all the crackles and started making a noise like an octopus or something. He looked proper upset and started banging on the inside of the screen and was clearly shouting at us. His face would have been red if Mamgu had a colour telly. Unfortunately, none of us understands alien underwater speak so at first we were confused. After a while though, we got the gist of what he was trying to say. Apparently, his name is Tharg and he’s the foreign minister for the undersea ice aliens of Europa. And it seems, our Dilwyn has eaten their equivalent of singer Susan Boyle and they’re all very upset about it.
Anyway, unless we send them our Susan Boyle to make up for their loss, pronto, or 3 Cheryl Coles and a Roger Whittaker, then they’re going to invade earth.
By this point all this shouting and waving was meithering Mamgu, so we switched over to watch the end of Emmerdale instead – we can always watch the Pobl y Cwm repeat on Sunday.
