As you can imagine, stress levels are somewhat high this week. I am *mostly* ready for Christmas now but there are still many little bits to do ranging from still having to post some cards to making sure I buy some mayonnaise because I totally forgot to add it to my delivery the other day!! Thankfully, younger and elder are still at school until thursday so I still have some time to find my sanity before the school holidays in which within the first couple of hours of waking on friday morning, I will have lost it again!
Every year I get asked what I want for Christmas…as with birthdays and other occasions, I usually say…nothing..or something foodie…or shock horror, this year for my birthday I asked for Chanel nail polish! A lovely and very dark shade that matches my love of black but alas it got *forgotten* in the mire of all things Doctor Who that I received in its stead. However one thing that I did ask for and I got was my wonderful French very mug with the very fabulous and helpful fully conjugated forms of Avoir and Être so now I am on the hunt for the Spanish version. I don’t think there are enough language related novelty gifts for adults, not that I can find anyway, so if there are, please let me know in the comments section.
This year, however, I have asked for books…lots of books and I am hoping to get a good selection from Little Linguist, a fabulous place to find lots of children’s books and MFL teacher resources for many different languages. I know…children’s books, but if I can tackle Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal AND read it to my two, I will be a very happy Maman Polyglotte!
For now, I wish you all a very Joyeux Noël and Feliz Navidad and I shall return in January for more shenanigans!
