I had to work hard at keeping the mantra today mainly because I had very little sleep last night. I went to bed at a reasonable time and got off to sleep but woke after a couple of hours. It took me ages to get back to sleep and I no sooner seemed to drop off when I was awake again.

up to blog. Multi tasking is good to a point, but I think it does help
sometimes to focus on one thing at a time, particularly a Swedish
