Kathy smiling outside her house.

I'm Kathy. I’m Italian-Australian and I’ve got a dog named Maxi.

I love Maxi. He’s a good boy.(A) Mummy(‘s) boy.

I take Maxi (out for) walks.

Sometimes I take him out to the beach. He loves the beach, and I take him around the block. It’s a good time to do exercise things, and I come home and relax.

I love my own time. I say “Maxi, give me space! You go there, I’ll go there”.

I like to go out and have a cup of coffee. I like my cappuccino there.I like to talk to people. I’m a people person.

I like my house clean. I do cleaning, cook dinner, and my laundry and washing.

I love my garden, (it’s a) nice garden. Sometimes I sweep the leaves and all the leaves come back and I have to go put them in the bins and all that.

I plan my week. I keep things organised, We go shopping (for) yoghurt, dog food, milk, bread.

I choose who comes in my home.I make sure my home is safe.This is my house. I’m in charge here and I’m the boss here.

I got good people around me.

I‘d like to stay forever and I don’t want to move out of this house again.
