Serious questions I am asking myself about being a blogger

Questions about being a blogger and blogging

  • Do I need to buy a colouring book?

  • With every young blogger finishing school/exams/uni, am I going to feel really jealous that they are able to post 5 times a day?

  • I don't have a functioning camera . . shall I just leave right now?

  • I don't own an Android let along an iPhone. How much longer will I be able to operate without Periscope or Instagram? 

More importantly . . .

  • How do you cope that I don't have Instagram? ;)

  • I've never seen Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones or Orange is the New Black. Nor do I want to. What is wrong with me?

  • ALL the sad, ALL the happy, ALL the hungry . . should I start using this 3 letter word in my tweets?

Travel & Work Abroad: An Au-Pair in Germany

It was the summer of 2007, my second year at university was over and I decided to jet off to Germany and au-pair for the summer. Like you do. I've not a clue what made me do this. I guess this was the start of the travel-bug!

What is an au-pair?

An au-pair is traditionally from a different country who lives with a host family and in return for bed, board and pocket money helps with light household tasks and childcare. Working hours vary between countries but tend to be between 25-30 hours per week with time available to be able to attend language classes. The current recommended pocket money for the country I went to, Germany, is 260 Euros per month.

How did I do it?

I went through a website called which allows au-pairs and families to have a profile and the ability to seek each other out. I made myself a profile, listing where I wanted to go and what experience I had (babysitting, young leader at Brownies and younger siblings) and sat back waiting for the opportunities to roll in! ;)
