Monday 21st October:
We are doing Mondays journal on Tuesday morning. It was a hectic day and I was on the road at 5am but the day went brilliant workwise. We got up to frost and it prevented us from hunting or galloping. We are continuing on hedge cutting and I think it will never be finished but we are getting there. We did a massive swap around with pups, saplings and schooling dogs. It would have been my late mothers birthday if she had been here and she would of been 92 where the last four years have gone since she passed away I don’t know. It was also a great friend of mine 80th birthday davey pringle from stakeford and another friend from monasterevin 25th birthday rob Patterson.
