To be an au pair or not?
'I haven't talked to you about it before!
I am registered to be an au pair and a family has invited me, err, it's in Italy..'
I was not too surprised because one evening I found on my computer screen a page on 'the world of au pairs' minutes after she 'borrowed' my PC. True, nothing had been mentioned!
So she found out more details but could not make her mind up! The children in her care were 2 and 5 y.old, and somehow I could not help mentioning ' nappies'. That evening when she had to ring and confirm, we were out in a Maroccan restaurant in Niort. It fizzled out.
Back from France, another family was interested and this time, everything is running smoothly. So, Camille is packing up, I am ironing and we are discussing bits and pieces.
What about you? Have you ever hired an au-pair? Have you been an au-pair? Let me know what you think about it. Yours in Christ
- I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance. I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. I live blissfully with my husband Steven, a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
