I woke up half an hour before the alarm today with the feeling that something was wrong. Then I realised what was troubling me: a conversation I had had with another parent yesterday when I was collecting the boys. And I suddenly realised where my Swedish had gone wrong, and why she had switched to English after that. And it has been irritating me all morning.
