Yesterday around noon Karl Gunér came down from Gothenburg to have a song writing session with us. After lunch at Di Penco we went to Malin's apartment and stayed there the whole rest of the day, trying to be productive. It took a while, and the inspiration seemed to be far away, but little by little a song started to emerge. We actually started with one chorus, but when we tried to write a verse for it, we noticed that the two parts didn't fit very well together. The verse though, felt more inspiring, so we stuck to it and made a new chorus instead. Sometimes you can't control your creativity and mood. We simply felt more like writing a cool, half-tempo song, than a soft ballad, this time.

This weekend we treated ourselves at our friend Susan's place "ABC hudvård" where we relaxed and hade our faces taken care of. It's so nice to be spoiled for two hours and just think about nothing. A pity you can't do it once a week, but there is always regular back massage and pedicure. (There is no use doing manicure when you are a musician. Play one gig and your nails are totally destroyed, so we stick to the other treatments.)

Yesterday we spent the whole day in Stockholm preparing for the Melodifestival, starting with the choreographer, Tine. We worked with our performance for an hour or so, and then we took a cab to Micke, the photographer and had a chat wit him. After that we went to Marie, the woman who will help us with our clothes. She measured us up and we had a good look in their huge wardrobe for inspiration.
The day ended with a nice dinner at an Italian restaurant we love. We are becoming regulars there, even though we live in Malmö.
Today rehearsals at Malins place.
