C. Chore that you hate: Making beds.. running from one side to the other... but then they look so lovely all made up... I love that look of cosiness.
D. Dogs: I had a Maltese named Daisy :) sooo beautiful.. but now I have a c-a-t.
E. Essential start to your day" My shower... the day just doesn't flow if this doesn't happen...
F. Favorite colour: Well, it was lavender, however, I am turning to pink ..and of course white... and I love the pale blue and red combination..ohhhhh do I really have to choose...??? I can't help but wonder how bloggers pick a color and stick to a theme... I am sure I have it worked out.. then I see mint green..or pale blue... sigh.....
G. Gold or silver: Gold
H. Height: 5'8and a half"... I love being tall :)
I. Instruments you play: Piano... and I sing... this is a huge family interest.

M. Mother's name: Dorothy Lillian. Beautiful name. Beautiful lady.
N. Nicknames: Never had a nickname till later years... (if you don't count the family pet name). One sister couldn't pronounce Marilyn so called me Mayma..or Mame (still does)... but nicknames... came later... Maz... Mazza.... Mazzabindi :)

I am soooooooo with you on "C". Making beds is such a chore but it is something that has to be done 'right' - no "that'll do" - and it is worth it to get into a lovely made bed.

Hello, Nice to see you!!!

Thank you very much for your lovely comment in my post.

This post of yours gave me good information about you♪♪♪
My city has a sister-city in your country (New Castle) and I have marvelous memories with people in that city as a kind of volunteer interpreter.
I'd really appreciated if you become my follower.

Sincerely, Orchid.

Regarding pinterest, send me an email with your email address and I will send you an invite. That normally works quite quickly.

Hello! Thank-you for your kind words and advice, it is always appreciated. Lovely to find you too.
I have always been naturally shy from a young age, I have grown to accept it over the years. I just hope over time, with age and with the responsibility that life brings I will come out of myself a little bit more.
I agree Dorothy Lillian is a beautiful name xxx

Betsy said...

I'm with you--I have so many color combinations that I love. And I'm envious of your beautiful location! This was a fun post. Thanks for commenting on my blog!

hi hun! wishing you a great weekend! i know it's hard to find the right camera but i wish i had a lot of money to buy a proper photographer one instead of a pocket camera but i'm still loving it coz the thing is, i just love taking pics and eventhough i took crap potos, the next thing i love is free photo editor online so i can change my crappy pics into nice ones with effects :)

Dearest Marilyn,
So good to read a comment from you! Thanks for your visit and wishing you well. I hope I can escape the need for steroids again... My blood work was not good. On the 20th again, let's hope I make it without medication as I loved the one year off.
Hugs to you,

Dearest Marilyn,
So happy to find your comment on my blog post! Hope you are okay.
Lost my Mom on January 27 and this 1st Mother's Day was kind of tough... for many reasons!
Sending you hugs and best wishes always.

Marilyn said...

Dearest Mariette... I am so sorry to hear about your Mom, Mothers Day must have been very hard for you. I love looking at your posts and hope one day to get back to posting myself.

This is so darn cute Marilyn! Loved reading it. I sleep just like that. :) Growing up my bedroom was lavender and I loved it. Now I just use touches of it for springs. Can't resist those gorgeous lilacs! Speaking of that, your header is beautiful!! Your Australia sounds gorgeous!! Our daughter just returned last June from spending a lot of time there. Hubby and I have never been, but hope to someday!

Marilyn said...

Nice to hear from you Jann. Looks lovely where you are. My daughter lives in PA and I have never been there but guess it is on the cards for one day. lol.
