Sunday 6th May Update:
We are doing the journals from Monday the 30th of April till Sunday the 6th of May all at once as the computer has been broken.
Saturday 5th May:
I got the computer back from the repair shop. They had it the best part of the week and did nothing to it. I bought a brand new one as like most businesses our internet site is important. When I got up this morning (Sunday) I turned the old computer on and its working perfect so we now have a spare computer. We galloped and hunted hounds and did a swap around with pups and saplings and the weather was great. In the soccer just as well Newcastle is safe because they cant win a game.

OH ARMANI WON THE MAIDENS FINAL AT ROMFORD.

Friday was the first day of the weather getting really good. We had the field to tidy up after the grass cutting and I had to go for fish and we got supplies from England so it was another very busy day.

Wednesday 2nd May:
It was the first day we were schooling in months. We took the first 20 to Kilkenny, all chased and one went better than another. I'm working off one handslip but the Makeshift x Swift Louis litter showed massive potential along with a whole lot more.

Tuesday 1st May:
I day tripped to England and got the 1:55 boat of the early hours on Tuesday morning and it did a record crossing so my day was going brilliant. I was in Sheffield for 8:30am and came back to Glossop for just after 9:00am and left there at 9:30am. There was no traffic and I was at the boat early and got the 2:10 boat in the afternoon. Its just left Holyhead harbour and there was an announcement that it had broken down and it was 10pm before I got into Dublin harbour. At the kennels we did a bit of maintenance work, changed beds and hunted pups.
