How on earth is it October already? Only 11 weeks til christmas!
So, I've just finished my first full week in the norwegian workplace (unpaid,of course!) and I had a fantastic week! I was scared witless on Monday and could barely breathe as I walked into the barnehage that morning but I really had no need to be so afraid as I was welcomed with open arms! I have learned so much norwegian this week and got over my fear of talking to kids. All the staff have been so kind to me,answering all my questions, joking about the many mistakes I make and just helping me in general. I got lucky with this barnehage! They even offered me a vikar (temp,stand in) position for January. It's only 5 weeks but it's a start (and will be my first paid job in Norway!)
Next week I'll work with the older kids (5-6) which I'm also pretty scared about as they ask so many questions. I will cope though!
p.s Like most of Europe we are having amazing weather at the moment. Thick fog in the morning followed by warm,sunny days. Lovely.
Enjoy the weekend folks!
