Our Ireland AM Appearance!

24 June 2011

Eek!  We were on national TV this morning!  It was such a fun and positive experience - both Jonathan and I had a great time and we thought the interview went really well!  The two presenters, Sinead and Mark were incredibly genuine and friendly and although we were a bit nervous before we went on, the interview was actually very relaxed and chilled!  It's so weird looking at a TV set from the other side...I've always pictured the Ireland AM set as someone's cosy living room with a beautiful garden outside - in fact it's all very fake and artificial!  There is no sitting room in anyone's modern home - it's just a set and a bunch of props...very strange!  And the "garden" backdrop is actually just a screen, those aren't real plants behind us!  Hahaha...I know this is all probably very obvious to most people but what can I say, I'm totally taken in by all of these things!  But what we were most surprised by was how down to earth and "real" the presenters were.  They were the exact same off camera as they were on, and they made us feel right at home.  It's strange how it all happens, we were actually deep in conversation before the cameras started rolling and so everything felt very natural and you do end up believing that you're sitting on someone's couch having a chat in their living room, even if you're not!  After the cameras stopped we continued our conversation as well, it wasn't as if they completely changed character or lost interest.  
We were on at 8:15am which meant that I woke up at 6am to start hair & makeup (all by yours truly! ;) and we slept in my future mother-in-law's house.  Albi was a total brat and woke us up about 15 times during the night...for some reason he gets anxious whenever we're somewhere new.  Sina is much lower-maintenance!  When we arrived home we went straight to bed and took a much-needed nap!  These pictures were taken on the way into the TV3 studio:
