After almost a week of containment to limit the spread of COVID-19, you may begin to feel the hours pass...
Improvised telework, technical unemployment or the continuation of your activity in unsympathetic conditions, only rejoicing! And with schools closed, many of us also have to keep children at home, and even assure them what is pleasantly called continuity of teaching. But of course, even if your little monsters would be big enough to do homework and other lessons on their own, it's impossible that it holds them all day...
So what can be done to manage this situation, which we want as short as possible?
If you have some free time, this can be an opportunity to finally take care of yourself. Of course, it is impossible to go to the beautician or the barber, but it is an opportunity to finally use the facials that you were offered at Christmas, to take a bath with bubbles, to resume the sport by chaining a few pumps, etc.
Same with your children: girls or boys, organize a crazy barber's salon in your bathroom and play with them for a moment to do anything with your hair, and theirs!
Containment may also be an opportunity to do all those little things at home that you always put off: finally changing the light bulb in the hallway, fixing this broken thing for days, going around the cupboards of the kitchen to undisting about what's out of date or finding inspiration for new recipes, now is the time or never.
And why not also sort through the closets, yours and those of your loulous! Take the opportunity to make it a parade, to make it fun ;)
But once the whole family is clean, the house is nickel, the work day is over and the homework done... What are we going to do?
There is still plenty to do with board games, manual activities, creative games, movies and series, video games, music, books and comics... Maybe this is your chance to get back on the guitar (poor girl takes dust from the closet, containment she knows), let your child introduce you to Fortnite for once, do a blind test, read our blog, start drawing... You can still share a good time, even at home!
And above all, take good care of yourself and follow the safety instructions! ;)
