Monday 19th august:

A nice and dry start to the morning and today is going to be a busy one. Along with the everyday jobs of cooking, cleaning, feeding and letting dogs out that are kennelled up we have the gallop to tidy before we will gallop a few hounds which will be the main job of the day. We have a supplies to collect which will also have to be packed away. If we get this much done it will be a successful day.

At the kennels the hedge cutting and the levelling out of the garden runs got finished yesterday so there is a massive tidy up to do. Other than the normal jobs of cooking, cleaning, feeding and letting dogs in and out that are kennelled up this will be as much as we can do today.
