It was a cold morning at 6am when we started. As we do the journal at 8:30 it now looks like rain. The main job of the day is getting all the hounds checked that are schooling. We have other small bits and pieces to do but other than that it will be a typical Sunday where we cook, clean, feed and let dogs out that are in kennels. I watched the Newcastle v Man Utd game and Newcastle were very poor. I thought several players didn’t turn up.
