I'm going back to the family I au paired for for a couple of weeks. The new au pair that they got, R, is heading back to New Zealand. She bought a house. Probably with her boyfriend. R feels awful about leaving the au pair family, but I guess these things just happens sometimes.
So The Mother asked if I could come back, just for 2 weeks. I don't really want to do it, but it's only for two weeks and at least I'll be earning some money, and also I don't have to share a bedroom with anybody else for a couple of weeks. That's my favourite part. It's also going to be nice to be able to hang my clothes up even if it's just for a short time, and having my own bathroom... And not having to pay for accommodation is going to be VERY nice.
I might spend the money I am getting these two weeks to go up to the Withsundays, or down to Adelaide and Perth. I've not quite decided yet. But I will spend it on going somewhere new!
It will also be interesting to see how it goes with my vegetarianism when living with carnivores. I think I'll just make one meal for the kids and another for me, or depending on what I make I'll just make a meat-free version for myself.
