Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
I live in Utersum. This is a small village on the island of Föhr. We Utersumers believe we have the most beautiful beach on the island - I think so too. There is only one town on Föhr: that is Wyk auf Föhr. Tourists like to cycle the 12 km that separate Utersum and Wyk from each other, because everything is flat on our island. There is also a bus driving between villages, but you are much faster if you take my car. Then you'll be there in about 15 minutes.

Job Description

Originally translated from Deutsch
Since my husband died 2 years ago, I've often been a little alone. My 9 grandchildren come to visit as often as they can, but in everyday life I often miss someone who listens to me, keeps me company or helps with very practical things like shopping, because at 96 years of age I no longer dare to drive a car. I don't need help with everyday activities. I don't need any help to clean either: Michaela helps me, who comes to me twice a week for an hour and helps me with the house.

I have known sharing the house from before, when my husband was still a vet. We have always been happy to take in the students who have learned from my husband. That was always nice.
I wish from you that you always look after me. Maybe we will go shopping, walk or play together. Don't worry. Often I just miss someone to talk to. I am actually a very curious and open person and I miss someone with whom I can eat cake on the veranda and who can tell me something or listen to me.

You have the whole upper floor to yourself. This is a bathroom, a bedroom, a small kitchen and a living room. The kitchen is very old and small. If you like to cook or bake it will be easier if you do that downstairs at my first floor. I have everything we need there.

I have also had wifi in my house for 2 years. I don't need it myself, but my grandchildren insisted on it.
