Sisters, a touch of the Irish and an I Pod

Well today's blog is for you li'l sis - just been over to yours and thought I'd just say there are Kennedy's in the family on mam's side so you never know maybe you can say 'top o the morning to ya' cos we might just have a little bit of Irish in us afterall.
As for me I'm wearin me green cardie and I've got a green bag to match. I love the bag, bought it at M&S and it has 2 sort of flower type things on the side. I'm into green at the moment, it's one of my favourite colours. The good Lord certainly knew what he was doing when he was creating because I just cannot imagine a lot of red everywhere the way we have green trees, green grass it's sort of softening whereas red - but then maybe that's because I don't really like the colour red, well certainly not in clothes.
It's almost the end of another week and I'm feeling tired.

Here's one for you other li'l sis, I was babysitting on Tuesday and my sweet granddaughter woke up at 11.45 pm just as I was nodding off to sleep and she was awake until nearly 3 a.m. I tried singing (maybe that just made it worse), I gave her another bottle, changed her nappy, put her in my bed, back in her cot, stroked her brow, resorted to a spoonful of calpol incase she was teething and then when Marc came home at 2.50 a.m. I quietly said to her 'you should be sleeping now, daddy's home' at which she shouted very loudly 'daddy, daddy' smiled a lot and he came into the bedroom, said sweetly 'what are you still doing up at this time young lady' she smiled lovingly back at him. He picked her up put her back in her cot, closed the door, and not another peep out of her. She obviously knew who was boss and it certainly wasn't me.
I then had about three hours sleep and was up at half six getting ready for work and getting the boys breakfast when I was given the privilege of fishing Ben's I Pod Touch out of the toilet. He had dropped it - I wont go into any detail but it is now affectionately known as the 'I Poo Touch'
The things a grandmother will do for her grandchild. Oo and I've just noticed the time so I'm off to bed for a much needed sleep.
Love ya both xx

Ben has an Ipod Touch???? I thought he was only 6! Does he surf the internet?
So are the Kennedy's Irish? I know you did a lot of family tree stuff, now that I have Kristen I'd be really interested in seeing it all... never seemed too bothered back then though! Wish I could come for coffee and browse through it all with you.
Love ya
