This week has been very exciting, but somewhat nerve-wracking as well.
I have been talking more and more to this family living in France on the Swiss border near Geneva. On Wednesday I Skyped with the mother and it went really well! I was nervous, but she was very kind and offered a lot of information about the life of an au pair in her family and the expectations on both sides. I immediately got a gut impression that this was the perfect match!
The next day she expressed her continued interest in me and asked me to commit to starting in May! I then got to Skype with the family’s previous au pair, Beth. She was very helpful and had great things to say about the family, and life living in the area. She confirmed that it a fantastic arrangement and that the family is genuine and kind. I am getting so excited to start this adventure!
Also, to top it off, I’m FINISHED my thesis!!! wooohooo! Time to pack up and move out of my apartment. France here I come!
I will be Skyping with the whole family tomorrow – meeting the father and the three children! I’m very nervous, I hope that they like me …
À la prochaine, bises.
