Saturday 17th March:
Its Paddys day today and every pest, alcoholic and fool will be out in Monasterevin celebrating. I normally go to the UK with dogs today but this year everything is sold. I will probably watch the soccer but I will be doing anything apart from heading into Monasterevin. The weather isn't too bad but the forecast is bad. I'm short staffed today so it will be a day for getting through cooking, cleaning, feeding and letting dogs out.

Tomorrow is St Patricks day and Monday is a bank holiday so everything will have to be done today as it will probably be this day next week before we get back to normal. I have no doubt there will be problems with staff coming in.

Yesterday was a lovely Spring day as were doing the journal on Wednesday morning. We got plenty done but didn't get the roofs finished in the puppy sheds.

Sunday 11th March:
Its a mild morning and I think it will stay dry. Were putting the roofs on the two puppy sheds. Were going to wash the vans and get food for pups. A massive victory for Newcastle United yesterday. The results went right for them elsewhere. If Man City beat Stoke tomorrow it will have been a super weekend. I think we will stay up if we get 35 points and you will definitely stay up with 38. Newcastle next game is Huddersfield at home. If we can get a victory there were in touching distance of safety.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAVE THREE RUNNER TODAY AT SUNDERLAND BRAMBLE RAFA AND AT SHEFFIELD SWIFT REACTION AND SWIFT MARVELETTE .
