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.

The one thing I think miss 4.5 loves about going to parties is being able to get dressed into her pretty dresses. Having two older brothers I would have thought she was be a tomboy (which was pretty much me as a kid) but nope, she loves all things girly and is a real little mother hen. Loves to dress up and is now starting to let me do her hair (still with some distraction involved)…she also seems to love photos of herself and will ooh and ahh over photos I take of her…just like she did with this one.

Cooking – My eldest after having a go at cooking scrambeled eggs the other night decided that he would like to try his hand at cooking something else. So tonight we decided to cook something a little bit more diffcult and one of his favourites meals of fried rice (and mine). He did really well too and it tasted yummy as well!15

Lead training – Yes cats can be lead trained just as well as dogs can. The last cat that I lead trained was 18 plus years ago so it’s almost like learning again although I remember bits and pieces from it. The cat also has to enjoy as well. Today is day two and we had a lot of success (much more than I thought we would considering we are only two days into the training.)

I started a bit late as Belle is 8 months old (better late than never hey!) but as she is a 100% indoor cat I wanted to give her a chance to enjoy the outdoors whilst also keeping her safe.

She is still getting used to it but made progress today and walked across the grass and chased her little ball that she likes so we thought we would take some photos of her progress and decided to include these in my photo a day project.

Belle is now tuckered out and fast asleep on my desk so all in a day’s work!

I should also mention that I have been following CATMANTOO and his youtube videos. Here you can watch his leash training video here as well as plenty of other cat training tutorials:
