5 tips to cope with post-Christmas limbo with children




How are you all feeling?


It's been such a strange Christmas season here in London: Lockdown 3.0 (rebranded as Tier 4), no family, but lots of it at the same time.


Nothing much to do.


Nowhere much to go.


And everyone will feel differently about it.


According to my little Instagram Story poll today, 92% of you LOVE this time.


And I have to admit that I do too.


No pressure.


Lots of leftovers.


Totally acceptable to have the TV on all afternoon, eat cr*p all day and have Bailey's in your hot chocolate.


But some people hate it.


And some find it a bit...meh?



So here are my 5 top tips to cope with the post-Christmas limbo, whilst also practising your French!



1. Make a 2020 family time capsule or gratitude jar


Here is some useful French vocab for it:

Merci pour: thank you for

Mon activité préférée: my favourite activity

Mon jour préféré: my favourite day

Mon film préféré: my favourite film

Ma chanson préférée: my favourite song

Mon jeu préféré: my favourite game

Mon parc préféré: my favourite park

Mon plat préféré: my favourite dish

J'ai aimé: I enjoyed
