Now that I’m older, I often go across the road to help Mum out at the market. I’ll probably get a “real” part-time job when I’m old enough but maybe this will give me some more experience when that time comes.

Changes for Sullivan

For a while now, I've been a bit bummed about how long it takes me to get through a round. I have a lot of families! If I didn't, I could get through a round a lot faster...but I'm also very attached to most of them.

I can find the time to play but when I have to blog about each family, playing requires a bit more planning and thought. So I've come up with a solution that I hope will work for me. I really want to see my sims progress in their relationships, careers and families and it's not looking incredibly likely for my youngest sims, if I keep going the way I'm going.

This is my plan. Generally, I have two families scheduled per game month. From now on, I will write a full update for one of the families and update on the other in the birthdays updates. Depending on what happens in that family, the birthdays update may be longer or shorter. I will also attempt to make sure the families who aren't getting a full update that round feature in other families' updates, so their own stories can be touched on there too.

My one exception to this new rule of mine will probably be the uni updates. I really love the uni updates and I think so many of my sims really come into their own during that time that I'd miss doing those, if I decided not to.

I was going to just mention this in the next birthdays update but I thought I'd make a dedicated post, just for anyone who is interested in my ramblings on the matter. I'll add a note in birthdays too, just for anyone who normally skips these sorts of posts. :)

Lot tour: Declan, Xavier and Austin's place

Remember that lot tour I was supposed to put up before Christmas? Um, well, here it is!

It feels like forever since I've played these guys and they have actually been sitting in an undecorated apartment all this time. I was on a bit of a roll with my game before Christmas though and finally went in and finished it.


The guys live in this building, which is another one of Starr's lots. I always think of it as Rob and Patience's place, even though they haven't lived in it since before they got married!

Lot tour: Daniel and Susannah's new place

I wanted to get another story update out this weekend but then I realised that a) this weekend was Christmas and I wouldn't get the time and b) a lot of you would probably be busy as well! So instead, I've got this lot tour for you today and another coming up hopefully in a few days. 

As those of you who are caught up would know, Daniel and Susannah got married recently. They're keen to have a baby but for that, they needed more space. I found this house for them and then proceeded to spend basically all their money decorating it. They have just $313 left!

The new house is this one from MTS.

(Alice is 18 and Gabriel is 17)

Narrated by Aurora Moretti

Moving into the dorms together has meant Bianca and I are now sharing a room again. It’s been several years since we’ve done that, so that’s been different.
