Happy Birthday, Winter 2017

Phoebe Vu is expecting her first child with fiancée Samuel Lind. The baby is due in the spring so Phoebe and Samuel really should get started decorating the nursery.

James Cooper, the youngest child of Grace and Sam, is celebrating his 1st birthday. He most definitely has his mother's nose.

Round 12 ROS

Here's the ROS for Round 12. Hopefully it won't all turn into a huge tragedy.

Fulfill biggest fear.

Flu epidemic! 10 sims are infected. - Oh man!

A movie night in with 4 closest sims.

Bonus for a job well done.

Round 11 Outtakes


Danny tells Charlie that his big brother Ben also attended Brixton U years ago. Charlie's answer? "Ben is hot hot hot!"


Ross, it's not very nice to say your mom looks like a sumo wrestler - even when she's 7 months pregnant.

Round 11: Autumn 2016
last update/next update

Sam Cooper is 38, Grace is 33, Madelyn and Ross are 5 and James is 11 months.

I've been at home with James but I think I'll get back to work next year. He'll be old enough to stay with the nanny then. I've enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom during his first months but I miss work already.

Is it like today?

Round 11: Autumn 2016

Principal Rianna Midlock is 46, Quinn Hayes is 40 and Patsy Greene is 25.
Students: Finn Harris, Lilly Fielding and Josh Cooper are 11, Frieda Robinson, Aaron and Ethan Hayes and Emily Midlock are 8, Sara Midlock is 7, Riley Cooper is 6, Jeremy Hayes and Madelyn and Ross Cooper are 5.



The school has gone through some renovations during the summer. There are new desks for all students, a new computer class room and more instruments for the music class room. Patsy teaches all kids from preschool to grade 2 and has 5 students this year. The girls are already waiting for the class to begin so Patsy tells them what to expect this year. The boys on the other hand have to be dragged to the class, they would much rather stay outside because it's so warm and sunny.

Round 11: Autumn 2016
last update/next update

Kurt Robinson is 60, Jack is 33, Paige is 32, Frieda is 8 and Todd is 4.


Narrated by Jack Robinson

I would be lost without Paige. She does so much around the farm even though she has her own demanding career in the military. I don't know where she gets all that energy but it feels like she never gets tired. She comes home from work and a moment later she's working in the greenhouse or tending the orchard trees.

Last weekend

Round 11: Autumn 2016

Principal Nyah Marlowe is 30.
Students: Nena Kirby is 16, Stephen Marlowe and Cassie Hooper are 15, Eddie Baldwin and Drake Saunders are 14 and Dawn and Zach Whitfield are 12.


Nyah is happy to see that someone is using the sewing machine. It's stood there unused since Janie Greene left for college but now Dawn is trying her hand in making some pot holders.

Greg Newman is 23.


Hi Tom,

here I am, all tanned and fit! I guess all that swimming in the ocean and eating fish has done wonders to my figure, lol.

I hope everything's going fine in your world and good luck on the house hunting!

Lot tour: Café Carousel

Summer 2016


Café Carousel is owned by Jackie Whitfield who also works as the chef. Jackie has owned the restaurant since 2006 and it has become quite a popular place.

Happy Birthday, Summer 2016


Alexa Harper found out a couple of months ago that she and Will are expecting twins. Now she's eating for three. It feels like she's hungry again the minute she leaves the dining table.

last update/next update

Ben Cooper is 38, Denise is 30, Riley is 6 and Liam is 4.
(
Sam is 38 and Grace is 33.)


Narrated by Ben Cooper

I'm only working 3 days a week at the moment and Denise only works 2 days a week so that one of us is always at home with the kids. We'll probably start working full-time again next year when Liam starts school. This system is working for us and luckily both our bosses have agreed to this settlement.

Cal and Elissa Cooper are 54 and Josh is 11.
 (Sam is 38, Grace is 33, Danny is 20, Madelyn and Ross are 5, James is 3 months .)


Narrated by Elissa Cooper.

I can tell Josh is getting closer to puberty as he seems to enjoy spending time alone in his room and doesn't want to play on the playground anymore. He's always playing with that PSP that he got from Danny.

Playable NPCs

The playable NPCs are usually either ex-partners of my playable sims, current partners who aren't serious enough to move in with my playables yet or townies who have fallen in love on their own via ACR.

I play the households every round and sometimes take pictures and post them on tumblr. All big announcements (engagements, marriages etc.) will be made in the Wellington Gazette.

All the right moves

I've settled nicely into Greenleaves Hall. Charlie Greene is such a nice guy - and quite cute too.

Round 11: Spring 2016

Dixie Greene is 22.


Narrated by Dixie Greene

I miss Tom so much. We talk on the phone every day but he's in the police academy right now so we don't see each other very often.

Kings and queens

Round 11: Spring 2016
last update/next update

Erin Fielding is 21 and Iona is 4.
(Toby is 24.)



Narrated by Erin Fielding

Iona and I moved to a new home this year - it looks exactly like our old one though. The only change is the upstairs. There's two bedrooms and the balcony is smaller. There wouldn't have been room for Iona's bed in our old house and I thought it would be nice if she had her own room.
