I had been wondering what Leo's book is like, I follow his blog and really enjoy his nuggets of wisdom, I am naturally a single-task person, with a daily list of all that needs to be multi-tasked! I also find I am most productive in the morning when there are fewer distractions!

By the way, I am going to say this out loud ... I have forgotten what my OLW is .. that's how much notice it has had this year!

Another wonderful LO which is incredibly captivating to read. I'm the same as Amy being naturally a single-tasker who works best in the morning. Normally by 3-4pm I'm useless lol. I had to refresh myself on my word for the year, one quick look on my pinboard and I see it's "Experience" & I don't think I'm doing too badly. Interesting to read how you're dealing with your year of "flow". Stick at it, I'm sure the answer will come :). Px

I so agree about the ironing....the task from hell....I do as little as possible. Single-tasking....what is that???? Not something I'm very acquainted with either.
The swamp will clear I'm sure....and the natural flow return....it takes time to adjust to new circumstances.


Fabulous photo - perfectly describing the recent wet wet wet all pervading dampness the country has seen recently.

Well done on your ironing victory!


I love, love, love reading your LSNED Alexa! Thanks for sharing.


Oh I'm a terrible multi tasker and work much better in the morning, by 4pm I could sleep! Love your pages so much. The photo of the rain drops is beautiful. We have a lovely day here, blue skis and warm sunshine. I'll send you some.


Single tasking sounds like exactly the kind of lesson I should be learning too right now. I'm also nodding my head at Paul B above - I work best in the morning too and always have done. as I get older I'm learning how to motivate myself to keep going on tasks after teatime!


I think I'll see if I can catch some sunshine for you Alexa - it's been fairly nice here for the last couple of days (though I suspect there's rain on the way).

I think you should re-assess that ironing... maybe you could give up ironing some stuff. I had to stop ironing when I hurt my back - I discovered then, that lots of stuff doesn't really need it after all... It's especially handy when I dry things in the tumble dryer - I try to fish them out before they cool down, so I can shake them hard - usually the creases drop out. Hardly anything really needs to be ironed.. the occasional blouse or skirt, sometimes a table cloth if we have guests(!), DH's shirts for work... but the rest... Blah! Shake it and hang it up!

BTW, been trying to contact you re. the Bloggers' Weekend. I have e-mailed you!

It's quite dreary here as well, but your pages are wonderful, as always, and no one would know you were a "basket-case."
