Don’t Do It Again Matilda

We have a French woman working in the office where I work on Mondays and Thursdays. She has lived over here many years and is married to an English guy but still has a very strong, and to my ears, delightful French accent. A few months ago I was amazed when she used the phrase "It can't be helped", which I remember my parents using and which I found very strange from the lips of a French girl living in Nottingham. It's not the sort of idiom, and an old fashioned one at that, that you would hear these days from many English people.
