Erm...working as a nanny is one of the toughest jobs I have ever done (and I have had a few jobs) but I prefer it to working in an office in London. Its nice to be out of the rat race and enjoy where I am living. I live with the family, I have my own room and entrance so I get alot of privacy. The kids are great but definatly a handful and I have to speak only English to them so my Italian is incredibly poor. I have met a few other au pairs but they tend to be in Milan so its abit annoying as would be nice to meet someone after I finish for a drink. Otherwise I generally love Italy and am enjoying being here. Not sure if I will stay on when I finish next summer it all depends on how lazy I am with learning the language.

Hi Joanna,

I'm on Lake Garda so sorry I'm not closer, life is pretty quiet here too, even more so with a new born in tow!

Can you do me a favor and introduce me to any nanny/au pair contacts you have. I may need some help and would like to explore possibility of hiring a live in nanny/house help as I aslo have 3 dogs to contend with.

Cheers,

Louise
