The hard life of being almost 12 and learning responsibility. He wanted to earn some pocket money so we gave him some chores to do. He tried his hardest at mowing, just needed to use that bit of muscle…21

The relationship that Tramp and Tristan have is something special indeed. Tramp can be quiet and calm just when Tristan needs it or can be energictic and robust when Tristan wants to play with him. Tramp is the calm to the sometimes turmoil that the anxiety brings out in Tristan.

Tramp is Tristan’s Autism companion dog as I have most likely mentioned in other posts on this page. You can read about our Autism journey at Tramp the amazing dog and our Autism journey and he is one of the dogs from the organisation called Labs ‘n Life.

Another moment captured whilst still not technically correct, I love the relationship that Katsuma has with her human master. Katsuma we found when she was abandoned as a tiny 4 weeks old. We took her in and she took an instant liking to master 8 and the feeling was mutual! Katsuma hides when it comes to the rest of us but she loves Ethan and will come and give a head bop to say her hello to him.

Katsuma became my muse and in a way features somewhat in my novel “The Cat and her Mistress”…at times she reminds me of a tiger and I call her tiger eyes.

Today we have decided to have a computer/TV free day. With the youngest at childcare and not able to get at the pieces on the board, the boys decided to play Monoply. So far so good that they are playing without any arguing but we shall see how long it lasts. Later this afternoon after some appointments we are thinking of rewarding the boys to a trip to Latitude Adelaide which is a fun recreation centre that has just opened up in Adelaide. We haven’t told the boys yet so shhhh as it’s a secret.

This wasn’t the perfect photo this morning but I had to capture anyway because it’s moments that count right?

My eldest was petting Belle the Ragdoll but of course Tramp couldn’t be left out and had to get in on the action too. My lad adores both of them.
