Hi Belén and Carolin,
I have been wanting to write earlier, but have been so busy, opening a bank account and studying English that I hardly had time to check my emails and get back to you.
So now I will update you a bit on my situation. I am super happy with my host family!! You have probably noticed.
It´s the perfect family, they treat me so nicely, the host mother supports me a lot and the kids are very well mannered and hard-working little chaps. They help a lot in the house and never argue with me. Maybe it´s due to their age, as they are a bit older already. The family pays me the public transport and my monthly mobile expenses.
My job is to do the school runs and stay with the children in the afternoons until the mum comes home. The oldest child is 13 years old, so I don´t have to help with the school runs in this case. She is very mature and responsible and I hardly have to take care of her at all. I prepare dinner usually every night and I clear the kitchen and do the beds. I don´t really have much housework to do, compared to other Au Pairs and the family always thanks me for any helñing hand I offer. As it seems, my English has improved a lot since I arrived and I can now maintain longer conversations!
