Very annoying having to translate first names!

I just got the two sentences back to back: Chan eil Marsaili a' faireachdainn sgìth & Tha Marsaili a' faireachdainn fuar.

It strikes me that an accomplished speaker would probably combine them to say:
"Chan eil Marsaili a' faireachdainn sgìth ach tha i a' faireachdainn fuar."
But, I wonder about repeating the same verb twice. In English I'd probably say "Marge isn't feeling tired but she is cold." But is that sort of abbreviation acceptable in Gaidhlig?
