Changing of the au pair


Sébastien left on Boxing Day after six months with us. It’s always sad to say goodbye to an au pair. But now Vanessa’s here!

She arrived last Sunday. She’d been on our radar for a while now, since we started looking in fact. We accepted her after she’d accepted another position, so that didn’t work out. then her position fell through, but by then we’d accepted someone else. You know, that sort of thing.

Sébastien was from France with connections to La Réunion island so the Arran weather was a bit of a shock to him, poor soul. He adapted pretty well though.

Vanessa’s from Germany and has perfect English. Better than a lot of the locals here! She’s survived her first week with the kids and they love her. She’s here until June.
