French - Help :(

Hi all.

I'm trying to write a paragraph in french. These are my instructions:
Décrivez vos activités habituelles pendant les vacances dernières en utilisant au moins sex verbes réfléchis à l'imparfait.

This is what I want to say:
Last winter, I did not go to bed early. Every night, I stayed up late watching television. I don't like waking up early on vacation. Around 10 o'clock, I would get dressed and walk in the garden. Then, I would go inside and eat quiche with my mother. I had coffee every day and tea every night. I always made black tea because it is my favourite kind.

This is what I have so far, but I'm really confused about using the imperfect forms of verbs and which ones to conjugate this way and what to leave alone:

L'hiver dernier, je ne couchais pas me tôt. Tous les nuit, je ____ tard regardais le tele. Je n'aimerais pas me lever tôt en vacances. A 10 heures, je m'habillais et se promenais en la jardin. Apres, je me mangeait quiche avec ma mere. Je buvais un cafe tous les jours et tea tous les nuit. Je _____ tea noir parce que c'est ma favori.

Help please? Any guidance would be so much appreciated.

  1. The first thing to learn about a reflexive verb is that the reflexive pronoun (me, te, se, nous, vous, se) go in front of the conjugated verb unless it is an affirmative command.

    je ne me couchais pas tôt.
    Tous les nuits (noun is also plural) je
    m'amusais en regardant la télé.
    et me promenais dans le jardin
    Après, je me mangeais (wrong ending)..mère. (In French, if the word requires an accent mark, it is wrong without it. If you don't know how to make accent marks with the computer, we need to know 2 things: 1) do you have a PC or a MAC and 2) do you have Windows or not?)
    café.....les nuits.
    Je me souvenais du thé (correct tea = le thé twice).....mon favori.

    (When in doubt about the spelling and/or gender, look the word up in a good French/English/English/French dictionary. If you need some that are on line, just ask.)

    Sra (aka Mme)

  2. L'hiver dernier, je ne couchais pas tôt. Toutes les nuits, je restais éveillé(e) tard à regarder la télé. Je n'aimais pas me lever tôt en vacances. Vers 10 heures, je m'habillais et me promenais dans jardin. Après, je rentrais et je mangeais une quiche avec ma mère. Je buvais un café tous les jours et un thé toutes les nuits. Je faisais toujours du thé noir parce que c'est ce que je préfère.
