Back in Ireland or the final countdown ;-)

Hello again guys,

So after my holiday I am now back here in Dublin for the last 5 weeks of my au pair stay.

It’s always hard to say goodbye, and it was also hard to say it again to my boyfriend and family at home. I had a really great time and it felt so normal to be there…

But it will also be very hard to say goodbye to my host family in the middle of September when I go back to Germany. Especially to my little boy. Since I’ve been back he has been clinging to me like a limpet, and that’s not only a metaphor, which is very cute. He said he missed me very much and he hugs me a lot every day now. I can’t imagine how hard it will be to say goodbye to him.

So, the first day I landed here it felt a little bit strange and I thought “Oh my God, I hope I can still speak English.” But I was wrong. It only took a few seconds and I could speak just as well as beforehand and felt at home here too. I definitely want to enjoy my final few weeks in my wonderful Dublin before I go back to Germany with what I’m sure will be a mix of happy and sad feelings together.

Talk to you soon!

Ellen :-)
