La Fête des mères

Finally had some time to paint my daughter’s photo which was taken during a school performance when she was five years old.

Mother’s Day in France was surprisingly celebrated on the first weekend of June this year. I have always thought that Mother’s Day here always falls on the last weekend of May. It is a little late to talk about Mother’s Day but it’s better late than never.

La Fête des mères en France a été étrangement célébrée la première semaine de juin cette année. J’ai toujours pensé que la Fete des meres ici tombe toujours sur le dernièr weekend de mois de mai. Il est un peu tard pour parler de la fête des mères, mais il vaut mieux tard que jamais.

Taking time, time, time…

Taking time, time, time…

Starting now, I have decided to blog both in French and in English so that I can practice more written French and not lose this skill during these times of non-exposure to written French.

I suddenly have a lot of free time now, which I usually spend on holidays.
But with the travel constraint brought forth by the current crisis,
what am I going to do with all this free time?

For some like myself, I continued to work from home. It was challenging at times because of the additional work of my daughter’s home schooling, and house cleaning, which was usually handled by a hired cleaner.

We’ve obviously been missing out on a lot this year. Half of the year is almost over, and nothing much happened… except maybe set some small (or big) personal improvement goals.
