Her name is Rosie. She brought her friend Maggie along who is also from the USA they are both lovely girls and Im go glad Iv met them. Its great being able to talk fast and not have to explain meanings of words that I use. They also think that my scottish accent is really cute.lol.
My flight was 6.10am on Thursday morning. I was a bit emotional saying goodbye. My flight was good got the whole row to myself. We landed on time and we seemed to taxi for ages prob a good 30mins or so. Then a wee 15min shuttle ride to the terminal. It took ages for my luggage to come and then I met Diane my new mum. She is lovely. It was a 40min car ride to St Germain-en-Laye.
I was staying with the family till sunday as Lucy their current Au Pair was leaving then. They children are lovely. Constance is 8 and she is a very sweet and sensible girl. Clenance is a lively 5 year old boy it took him a while to get use to me then theres guthier. He is 21months old. He liked me straight aways giving me cuddles and feeding me some grapes. we went for a walk around town after lunch and went to the castle gardens where the is a small park and the children played there for a while then we went to see the goats.
Once the children had their baths and dinner they went to bed and me and Diane sat and chatted and Luc came home around 8.30 and we had dinner. I went to bed pretty early as I was tired.
On Friday I spent the day with Lucy and the children getting use to their routine. It will be diffrent once the children are back at school.
On Saturday I went food shopping with Diane and she got some food for my flat. Then at 4pm I met Lucy and she took me into Paris on the RER. We walked down Champs-Élysées I bought a mug and teddy from the disney shop. Then we went for an Ice Cream, we really should of done that after dinner as we were stuffed by the end of it. We found a lovely tea shop so I got some tea for my room. When we got back to St Germain en Laye we got some pasta salad and sushi and ate that at the flat.

After lunch Lucy came round and we had cake and Lucy siad her goodbyes, them Luc took me and my things to the flat and picked Lucy’s things up and he took her to the airport.
I unpacked and then went shopping for shampoo and soap. I sat in my room for a while then went down stairs to make some food. I met 2 of my flatmates one of them can speak quite good english. I had tea and one of the girls that stays in my wee flat gave me the code for the internet. I sat on skype with my mum and sister for a while then went to bed.
