So today I was playing with my cats. They’re very cute, really. Sometimes a little pushy when dinnertime comes around. They tend to walk over my keyboard or meow loudly until I give in and give them treats. It’s like they have the upper hand.. So when I was playing with them today..
Oh right. I said I had big news, didn’t I?
I HAVE A MATCH
Just half an hour ago I got the email that said ‘yes, we would like you to become our Au Pair’. And I am over the moon about it!
On December 9th I will fly out for the 3 day introduction course in Stamford, NY and then I will fly out to my host family in.. Chicago! Yes, I am going to the Windy City in the mid-west. The Prairie state. The home of YouTube star Weezy Waiter and the setting for my favourite novel series The Dresden Files. The home of the shiny bean! And I’m sure a lot of other historic and important things that I’m forgetting about right now.
I can barely contain my excitement! Wahh
Obviously, I won’t give out too much details about the host family to protect their privacy. But I can tell you that I will be taking care of 3 kids. Two girls (0 and 4 years old) and a boy (3). Also, the mom’s from Belgium and the Dad’s from Bath. How awesome is that?!
So basically: iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
