The work has gone well this week but as always were never finished. Were fully stocked with the exception of pasta which will be coming from the UK next week. We just about have all the tidying up done with the exception of one paddock. If the weather is good all this will be complete by Tuesday evening. The main job today is preparing the next batch of saplings to get them ready for schooling. We will also try to gallop a few hounds. Plus the everyday jobs of cooking, cleaning, monitering pups, feeding and letting out.

As we do the journal at 7:30 in the morning were getting rain. I dont think it will last all day. If it dries up we will continue on with the tidying up operation. Kamil is away for fish. Ill probably go to collect bagged milk myself. Were expecting Gain dog food so tht will have to be packed away. We will probably gallop and worm a few pups.
Thursday 13th September:
Another nice day and everything is going well. We did a major maintenance job on the gallop which is now finished. There is still a bit of hedge cutting to do and there is still a heap of supplies to come. We will probably hunt a few pups today and as normal seek a load of bits and pieces. We also have a heap of paperwork to do which will also get done.
Wednesday 12th September:
Its a lovely morning and the first lot of our supplies arrived. We nearly have the truck emptied 8.30 am. The next main job of the day is schooling at Kilkenny. Conor will have to take all our waste away which will take him all day. The tidying up operation will continue at the kennels. That will be as much as we can do for one day.
