The lovely Cara gave me a letter, M, so here goes.
McLellan- this was my maiden name which I kept for 21 years until I got
Married- which I will have been for 20 years this coming Halloween, thats a long time!!
Mother- this I have been for over 17 years and it is a constantly changing, challenging job which I love mostly, though there are days when I want to change my name from “Mum” to something more ME!!
Males- Since being a teenager I have lived in an all male household, except for a short spell with a cranky old female cat called Sally, who unfortunately got run over by a car one foggy morning.
I am determined that my boys will be fabulous partners and one day someone else will appreciate the time it has taken me to educate them in the ways of all household appliances, even when I know that doing the job myself will be easier, quicker and less painful than nagging them to do it, I will continue to ask nicely, ahem NAG!!
Mornings- I am a complete morning person and I love to have peace and quiet to drink my tea and contemplate the day for at least 1/2 hour before anyone else gets up, my friends know not to call me at night as the conversation is rubbish as I can’t think straight after 9.30pm!
This is this mornings sky.
Mates- My friends are scattered all over, they are all very precious to me though I have to admit at sometimes being REALLY bad at keeping in touch.
Myopia- I have been short-sighted since I was a teenager and wear glasses to watch television and drive, at all other times I view the world with a very blurry edge, I kinda like it that way.
Matching- I do have a thing about colour co-ordination, which I have passed on to at least 2 of the boys, much to my husbands displeasure The matching and symmetry thing does have its downside though as even when I am trying to do random, a pattern starts to form, usually when beading.
Mascara- an absolute Must, can’t leave the house without it and if I do, to walk the dog, take out the rubbish, I just hope I don’t meet any neighbours.
M’s I hate, moths and marzipan, bleuch.
M’s I love,
Macaroni cheese, my all time favourite dinner, with ayrshire back bacon, yummmm.
Merlot, or most other reds, I am really not that fussy!
Marmite, on toast and I am the only person in the house who eats it.
Markets, my idea of a blissful sunday morning trailing the local markets for
something for lunch.
Movies, especially musicals, though I don’t enjoy going to the cinema.
Magenta, or any other shade of pink.
Two matching berets from the latest IK, one for me and one for my friend Margaret, one of my favourite M’s.
