Thursday 30th November:
We got a delivery of paper bedding from the UK. Again we got up to heavy frost which make the job very difficult. There was very little we could do outside as the frost didn’t lift all day. We topped up all the kennel beds. We continued on repairing the kennel doors and did a bit more maintenance work.
Friday 1st December:
Friday was another very cold day. It was -5 degrees when we started work. We had to carry water from my house as everything was frozen. There was absolutely nothing we could do outside. It took almost the whole day to carry bucket of water from my house to the kennels and rearing paddocks. I more or less took the day off myself. We got one of the vans serviced.

Saturday 2nd December:
Saturday was another cold day. When we started at 6am it was -5 degrees again. I went for meat myself and it took forever to get there as it was foggy. I also went to the dump in the afternoon. At the kennels it was another day that we had to carry the water from my house as everywhere was frozen. The only other thing we could do was change beds in all the kennels and keep hounds warm. Newcastle United had a fantastic victory against Man Utd. We have a load of injuries but we dominated the game.
